'Britain's Got Talent' gymnasts have taken the US by storm, as their audition video gets over two million 'Youtube' hits

'Britain's Got Talent' acrobats Spellbound have become an internet sensation.

The gymnastic crowd-pleasers have racked up over two million views on YouTube since their TV audition was broadcast three weeks ago, and have received massive interest from America.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "It is usually singing acts that do really well in America, like Susan Boyle and Janey Cutler, but Americans have really taken notice of Spellbound this year. They could be the first non-singing act from 'Britain's Got Talent' to do really well there."

Since the memorable audition, the troupe has been bombarded with interview requests from the US media, as well as receiving impressive coverage in overseas magazines, including one which described their routines as "jaw-dropping."

Spellbound's audition saw the group - who are aged between 12 and 24 - propelling each other into the air and across the stage, balancing themselves on each other's heads, and swinging one girl like a skipping road.

Judge Simon Cowell told the group at the time: "I have never seen anything like that in my life."

Last year 'Britain's Got Talent' star Susan Boyle's audition received 26 million views on YouTube within a week and shot her to international success.

'Britain's Got Talent' continues tomorrow (15.05.10) on ITV1.
