TOWN hip-hop dance starlets Lil Diamondz caused a bit of a stir between the bickering Britain’s Got Talent judges.

According to reports in the national media yesterday, show supremo Simon Cowell and latest recruit Alesha Dixon disagreed as to whether the talented youngsters should be put through to the next round.

Simon had questioned Alesha after she said the group “hadn’t let her down”.

The former Mis-Teeq singer and Strictly Come Dancing judge knows the group well after they were crowned winners of her show, Alesha’s Street Dance Stars, on CBBC last year.

But she was apparently left furious after Simon put her down, saying: “Sorry, who are you anyway?”

The disagreement came as Lil Diamondz tried their luck at an early audition stage of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent.

The popular Hartlepool group made the trip to the International Convention Centre, in Birmingham, where they attempted to impress the judges.

Joining Simon and Alesha on this year’s panel is Amanda Holden and newcomer David Walliams.

The group are not allowed to say whether their audition was successful.

Lil Diamondz were hoping to follow in the footsteps of previous successful dance acts on the show including 2008 winner George Sampson and 2009 champions Diversity.
