There have been so many amazing acts on this year’s season of America’s Got Talent. However, one of the most exciting by far is that of young dancers Izzy and Easton. They both have such great bubbly personalities and they are so much fun to watch. For their young ages, they are incredibly talented too.
Izzy is only 11 years old, and Easton slightly older at 14, yet they dance just as good as most adult professionals — some may say even better!
However, fans of the duo were still really nervous for them when they appeared in front of judges for the first time in their recent audition. There was a lot riding on their performance, but the kids were ready.
“We’re just going to do what we know how to do best, which is dance,” said Izzy.
The judges asked them what they were going to do today, and when they said contemporary dance, Simon Cowell smirked at them.
“Does anyone like contemporary dance, out of interest?” Simon asked judge Julianne Hough.
“Yes,” said Julianne.
“Like who?” Simon joked.
“Me,” responded Julianne.
Yet, the kids were unfazed by Simon’s skeptical manner.
They had been dancing together for five years prior and knew they had what it takes. The song they chose for their performance was “Soldier” by Fleurie, and as soon as the music started, everyone’s doubts instantly went out the window.
Not only was the pair extremely graceful, but their flawlessly executed moves also told a story.
The theme of the dance was that Easton was a soldier going off to war and Izzy was his younger sister begging him not to leave.
It was so beautiful to watch, and emotional too. There was so much truth in their physical expression of the story. As Izzy and Easton spun back and forth across the stage, the audience couldn’t help but start cheering them on.
Their ballet-inspired dance was the perfect mix of classical, modern, and jazz styles.
Ultimately, they finished their performance to total silence. Everyone was just so stunned by how good they were and the last seconds of the dance were spellbinding.
No one could take their eyes off the duo.
However, as soon as the crowd realized the performance was finished, everyone erupted into roaring applause.
Simon threw up his hands in the air.
“Wow!” said Simon as he stood up to applaud them.
The judge was totally shocked. So much for not liking contemporary dance!
Then, all four judges proceeded to give the two a standing ovation. Everyone was noticeably moved by their emotional performance and we even thought Julianne might actually hit the Golden Buzzer for a minute there. However, in the end, for whatever reason, she decided to hold off on that.
It didn’t stop the judges from sending the kids onto the next round of the competition though.
The final result was a unanimous “yes” from everyone on the panel — including Simon.
We are so happy for them. It will be so exciting to see what else the young duo have in store for us as this season continues. If their future performances are anything like their audition, we imagine they are going to go very deep in the competition. They just have the most amazing chemistry!
