Razy Gogonea: I’m Razy Gogonea. I’m 28 years old. And my talent is dancing. I’m originally from Romania and I moved to Manchester two years ago because of my girlfriend.

I’m doing this for us, for my girlfriend. For her, seeing me perform will make her proud of me.

When the movie Matrix came on, I said, “I want my body to do what Keanu Reeves did in the movie.”

I love dancing. I’ve been dancing all my life. Nothing can take my dancing away. This means everything for me. If I go through this competition, it’s my dream come true.

David: Hello. I love your entrance. What is your name, sir?
Razy Gogonea: I’m Razy.
David: Razy. Wow. Cool outfit, man. Where are you from?
Razy Gogonea: I’m originally from Romania, but I live in Manchester.
David: What will you be doing for us today?
Razy Gogonea: Break dancing and body pumping.
David: Great. Well the stage is yours; show us what you’ve got.

Michael: Oh Razy. I loved you Razy. You were brilliant. These were things I’ve never seen humans do: you leaning back and lying on the floor. I think it was excellent. I can really carry on watching you: you are Neo from the Matrix.

Amanda: Do you know I can say almost exactly the same. I found it exciting … you used the whole stage, which is also very good because a lot of people are static when they do this kind of style of dancing … beautifully choreographed … excellent job … well done.

David: You are like a real live video game: very, very, very entertaining — excellent. Michael.

Michael: An absolute, definite “Yes” from me.

Amanda: I can see how much this means to you: I’m saying “Yes”, 100%.

David: Three Yeses, you get to go to the next round.
