'AGT: All-Stars' 2023: Where is Darius Mabda now? 'Romania's Got Talent' winner now focusing on school
ORADEA CITY, ROMANIA: Darius Mabda, a highly flexible dancer, swept the competition on 'Romania's Got Talent' Series 12. The 13-year-old acrobatic dancer is proof that Romanians are extremely gifted, and he is keen to perform on stage at 'America's Got Talent: All-Stars' 2023.
On Week 4, 'AGT: All-Stars' will feature ten additional contestants. After this week's episode, there will be two more weeks of auditions until the finale. This week's Golden Buzzer winner is Heidi Klum. Who will she pick to go directly to the finale? Could that be Darius, the 'Romania's Got Talent' winner? We won't be able to confirm that until the episode airs on January 23, but here's all you need to know about Darius and where he is now.
Who is Darius Mabda?
Darius is a Romanian student from Oradea City. He enjoyed dancing when he was a child and has been attending a choreography school in Cluj-Napoca since he was eight years old. His mother works as a secretary and his father is a former police officer, thus, neither of them has any ties to the art world. His command of the stage and aptitude for converting emotion into art was evident even before his lyrical dance performance began.
Darius' description of his relationship with music and dance shows a level of creative maturity uncommon in a 13-year-old. "When I dance, I go into a trance that I can’t get out of, and that inspires me when I make choreographies," Darius stated.
Since his self-created dance was full of emotion and talent, 'RGT' judge Mihai Bobonete gave him the Golden Buzzer. The judge even likened Darius to one of the greatest ballerinas of all time Mihail Barîşnikov.
Where is Darius Mabda now?
Darius' life altered dramatically almost a year after the competition concluded. He appeared in multiple events, the most recent being on October 3, when he took the stage alongside Alina Sorescu's band. He had more and more concerts, and he gained a reputation in the internet world as well. Darius has over 3,600 followers, and he makes sure to keep them up to speed with the newest news from his life. He's also been concentrating more on his schoolwork recently.
"I would give all the money to pay for my studies. I want to be applauded, to be known, for the world to know that I am Romanian," he said.
Darius is serious about his future plans and aspires to be renowned both at home and abroad. His ambition of becoming a dancer and dancing at Moscow's Balşoi Theater is surely within his grasp.
Fans are eagerly anticipating his American debut on Monday's episode of 'AGT: All-Stars'. Tune in to NBC on Monday, January 23 at 8 pm ET to witness his preliminary act.
