“Does anybody like contemporary dance, out of interest?” an uncertain Simon Cowell is seen asking fellow judge Julianne Hough who responds she does to which Cowell petulantly asks "Anyone else?” But little did Cowell know that he would be impressed with contemporary dance after all.
Recently 'America's Got Talent' season 14 shared a sneak peek video from Tuesday's episode. Las Vegas residents, 11-year-old Izzy, and 14-year-old Easton are childhood friends and have been dancing together for over five years now.
"I love dancing with Easton because he's so amazing and nice and sweet," Izzy is seen saying in the video. "He's like my older brother. We’re also such a good pair because we don’t only love dance, we love food, too.” Their dance routine was based on a family bond, portraying siblings who have been separated by war.
“This is gonna be one of the biggest performances we’ve ever done, but I think we’re ready for it," Easton replies. When Izzy and Easton walked on to the AGT stage and revealed they were contemporary dancers, Cowell questioned the popularity of the dance, but after watching them dance, it looked like they turned Cowell into a fan because he was quite impressed after their routine.
Their moves were on point, not a slip and the emotions portrayed in their performance were remarkable. Once they were done with their performance, Izzy and Easton received a standing ovation from all four judges. After taking a look at the young dancers' audition performance and incredible dancing skills, fans on Twitter had a lot to say.
Taking to Twitter, a fan wrote, "Wow!! You could see the story. The ending made me tear up. So, I sure hope they make it far!! Cute little people!!."
Another fan said, "I really love Izzy and Easton's performance. @izzyandeaston It was such a Beautiful beautiful and captivating performance. They are also amazing."
"It actually brought tears to my eyes. Beautiful job, absolutely gorgeous," added another fan. While another said, "You guys are incredible; that routine was stunning!!!"
Apart from getting showered with love by fans on Twitter, Hough also took to Twitter and spoke proudly of the dancers saying, "Precision and grace, while serving some fierce dancer face! @izzyandeaston live out the start of their dreams on @agt this week!"
