Former Filipino street kids wow judges at US talent show
Members of the dance group impressed the judges and audience as they performed flips and stunts, even in high heels
An all-male Filipino dance group wowed the judges and audience in the 13th season of ‘America’s Got Talent’.
Junior New System, a group of dancers who were street children from the Philippines, auditioned for the latest season of ‘America’s Got Talent’, which premiered on Tuesday, Zeibiz reported.
The group became emotional before their performance, as they told the judges it has been their dream to perform at ‘America’s Got Talent’ and they were thankful for the opportunity. They said they had been dancing together for nine years.
The group’s performance was well-received by the judges and audience after they switched from dancing in sneakers to dancing in high heels. The dancers performed flips and stunts in high heels as well.
Junior New System appeared on the first season of ‘Asia’s Got Talent’ in 2015 and the group made it through to the grand finals. All members of the group come from underprivileged families from Sampaloc and Manila.
