Judges and viewers of Britain's Got Talent were worried for a member of the Ssaulabi Performance Troupe.

One member of the troupe, who competed in the live final of the talent show, was seen limping off stage after an injury during their acrobatic performance on Sunday night. Ssaulabi, one of the most discussed acts on the ITV show this year, received the Golden Buzzer from hosts Ant and Dec in the first show, after the pair were completely taken aback by their audition.

This bold move by Ant and Dec ensured that the Korean martial arts experts secured a spot in the semi-finals, reports Chronicle Live. After performing in the first heat on Monday, they progressed further, making it to the Britain's Got Talent final based on the judges' vote.

Ant and Dec were thrilled to introduce Ssaulabi to the stage at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday. The troupe delivered another daring and high-flying routine, set to music including the famous classical composition Ode to Joy.

However, the routine ended abruptly for one member when they seemed to land poorly after executing an impressive somersault. They quickly exited the stage, hobbling to the back, leaving the rest of the troupe to finish the top-notch performance.

Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon was the first to comment, telling Ssaulabi that what she saw was 'like a movie' and expressing her hope that the injured member was OK. Ant and Dec, breaking all impartiality, publicly expressed their support for their Golden Buzzer act and their desire for them to win.

Whoever wins the show tonight will take home the huge cash prize as well as perform at the Royal Variety Performance, which takes place this year on November 22nd at the incredible venue of the Royal Albert Hall. The Britain's Got Talent winner will be chosen during the live final tonight (follow our LIVE updates here).
