Two dancers on a reality talent show stunned the judges with their incredible routine meant to combat homophobia.
Dancer/acrobats Guillaume and Arthur appeared on La France a un incroyable talent (France Has Got Incredible Talent) last night.
After introducing themselves, singer and judge Hélène Ségara asked them if they had anything to say before performing.
“We’re going to present a number against homophobia,” Arthur said.
Then they proceeded to wow the judges.

“It was so beautiful and it was so tender at the same time,” said Ségara. “I think that with or without a message, I found it beautiful, and it felt good.”
“Two boys kissing on the lips is not something we often see on television, and that touched me deeply,” said singer and actress Marianne James, who is also one of the show’s judges. She was the grand marshal of Paris Pride earlier this year.
“Violence continues to rise, so there is a battle to be fought here,” said comedian Éric Antoine, another judge.
He later tweeted: “This fight is unfortunately still necessary.”
