In America’s Got Talent Season 13, Filipino all-male dance group Junior New System gave the audience and the judges an unforgettable dance performance on Tuesday, August 14, 2018.
The group began with a dance routine to Macklemore’s “Cant Hold Us” wearing sneakers. Suddenly, in a middle of the performance, they switched their footwear into six inch high heel stilletos dancing to Fifth Harmony’s Song “Boss”. The twist included heart-stopping backflips and gymnastic stunts.
Their performance earned the group a standing ovation from AGT judges Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell. “It is not just the heels, it is the passion and personality that makes it so exciting,” Simon added. “I think this is going to be the most talked about act and for all the right reasons.”
On the other hand, Mel B praised the 11 group members for their unity. She mentioned, “Oh, my God. Wow! Everything about you guys, where you come from, where you are now, you do your own choreography, you are united and together and you sure move!”
The group’s members belonged to poor families of Sampaloc, Manila, who had their share of hardwork to support their families. This time, with a life-changing decision of uniting and performing together, their dream brought them to as far as performing in the Semi-finals of America’s Got Talent. All thanks to the support of both Filipino and American fans.
