Declaring themselves the “Flyers of the South,” Filipino dance group urbancrew bounded on to the America’s Got Talent stage with energy to spare.
In this early release of the act’s audition, which will air on Tuesday (June 14), the group describes themselves as “break dancers and acrobats.” A member of the group shares that they auditioned for AGT because it’s “the biggest stage,” adding “We believe being a Filipino, it could be a big contribution for our beloved countries.”
Also, the member said he believes the group can win AGT because “We work hard for this…this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Urbancrew is a typical mix of hip-hop dance moves and high-flying acrobatics. Members randomly toss other members in the air, where they perform somersaults and other tricks, before landing safely on their feet. Once dancer needs so much room to complete their trick, that they run off stage past host Terry Crews to get a running start.
However, the boys set themselves apart from similar acts. Near the end of the routine, a dancer lands on the judges platform after the crew tosses him in the air. He somersaults and stands, getting right in Sofia Vergara’s face. She is VERY startled. The judges and the audience give the group an enthusiastic standing ovation.
