Britain’s Got Talent 2008 – Suleman Mirza And Madhu Singh (Signature)
Trainee lawyer Suleman Mirza and Madhu Singh had the crowds at the Hackney Empire cheering when they performed at the auditions for Britain's Got Talent.
While Suleman wowed the crowds with his Michael Jackson impersonation, Madhu wandered on stage, broom in hand, on the pretence of sweeping the floor.
Instead, the pair solved their 'differences' by having Bhangra/ Michael Jackson dance-off which delighted the judges as well as the crowds.
Mirza and Singh are part of the well established Signature dance troupe, and are no strangers to performing live in front of large crowds. While Madhu has stayed out of the spotlight so far, Suleman has been practicing hard and performing for many years.
Suleman was born in London and now lives in Essex. He learned to dance by practicing five hours a day as a kid, freeze-framing Jackson's moves as he watched them on video again and again. He is known as one of the best Michael Jackson impersonators in the world, even meeting Jackson himself at the World Music Awards in 2006.
These days, he's busy studying law. However, as well as dancer and Jackson impersonator, he's been lucky enough to perform as a backing dancer for big-name Bollywood acts including Sunil Shetty and Anil Kapoor. If you thought he looked familiar, he's also been an extra in a few music promos, including the video for the 2002 Surinder Rattan hit, Kala Kala Munda, too.
The hilarious bring-the-house-down sketch is a bit of twist for Suleman and Madhu, so they're looking forward to seeing how transforming themselves into an ITV1 primetime comedy act will go. With surprises promised if the guys do make the semis following a very successful audition day, Suleman says, "This is the show I've been working towards. It could really help make my dreams come true".
