They did Darth Vader proud.

Dancing stormtroopers let off some serious steam during the "Britain's Got Talent” grand final on Saturday night.

Boogie Storm -- who were head judge Simon Cowell's golden buzzer act -- cut loose with a phenomenal performance, which showed the usually obedient servants of the Galactic Empire embrace their softer side.

The six-strong troupe boogied on down to classic Spice Girls, Madonna, The Weather Girls and Justin Bieber tracks — before ending the performance to "The Time of My Life" from "Dirty Dancing."

And yes, they even recreated Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey's iconic lift.

But ultimately, the Force wasn't with them, and they ended the talent competition -- the winner of which is voted for by the British public -- in third place.

Here's how the rest of the finalists fared:

1. Richard Jones, a soldier in the British Army, took the top £250,000 prize (about $365,000) with this magic act:

2. Wayne Woodward was runner-up after wowing the audience with his sensational singing:

3. Boogie Storm took the third spot. Watch their spectacular live semifinal performance here:

4. Jasmine Elcock, who stunned in her first audition with Cher's "Believe," came fourth.

5. Beau Dermott defied gravity again, just as she did in her first TV appearance:

6. Craig Ball's impressions of cartoon characters singing Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" landed him the sixth spot:

7. Dancing dog Trip Hazard sadly couldn't replicate the feat of Matisse, who won last year's competition:

8. 100 Voices of Gospel were initially tipped to win the entire show, but ended in eighth place:

9. Alex Magala pulled this death-defying stunt, which, by the way, should definitely not be tried at home:

10. Balance Unity danced his way into the U.K. public's hearts, but failed to secure enough votes:

11. Shannon and Peter's emotional ballet earned them the judges' wildcard to the final:

12. And mom-son singing duo Mel and Jamie covered Cher’s version of The Judds' "Love Can Build a Bridge" to take last place:
