Despite receiving a standing ovation, four votes, a roaring reception from the 2000-strong audience and a yes from host Ricki-Lee Coulter, the Find Your Voice All-Abilities Choir has been cut from Australia's Got Talent.
The video of their performance has been viewed by more than 1.4 million people and shared 30,000 times.
Judge Nicole Scherzinger praised the choir for their efforts. She said the group had proved the only boundaries that hold anyone back are "the boundaries in our mind".
Manu Fieidel said it was a moving performance.
"It was very inspiring and just so beautiful," Mr Fieidel said.
Shane Jacobson said he had no hesitation voting for the act and asked the crowd to also weigh in. The choir was told they had four votes from the judges and 2000 from crowd members.
Ms Coulter then chimed in, saying the choir had her vote as well.
However, it was revealed on Monday that the judges had in fact said yes to more than 100 acts during auditions.
"They have since faced the difficult task of narrowing their list down to their top 30," a statement from Australia's Got Talent reveals.
Sadly, The Find Your Voice All-Abilities Choir was not one of the acts which went through.
Choir co-ordinator Kylie Thulborn said members of the group were elated to have appeared on the show.
"We've received thousands of messages of support from all over the world," Ms Thulborn said.
"It's been a massive week for us."
Ms Thulborn said choir members were looking forward to performing at the Lighthouse Theatre on November 13.
"Within three hours tickets had 70 per cent sold out," she said.
