Dance group Da Republik from the Dominican Republic wowed the “America’s Got Talent” judges this week when they returned for the Quarterfinals 2 episode. This time around their live dance routine was truly out of this world, as it involved elements of an alien apocalypse. The performance was filled with so many tricks the “AGT” judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — could hardly keep up with it all. Do YOU think Da Republik will advance to the Semifinals? Watch the “Americas Got Talent” performance video above and read the judges’ comments below.
Mel: “Dominican Republic is in the house! My gosh. Well for a start, your hair is on fire. But can I just say you left everything on that dance floor. The moves, the jumps, the twists, the turns, the choreography on point. I didn’t see one mistake. You are representing your country and doing it so good and so live and so well.”
Heidi: “It was beyond exciting. [Mel] squeezed me so hard I’m gonna be bruised tomorrow. I can see how much you rehearse and I can see how much you really want this. And therefore I really want this for you guys. Well done.”
Simon: “I know it’s early on. This is the best dance group we’ve seen in the live shows so far by a clear mile. The only thing I can tell you is, if you get through to the next round, the end goal here has to be Vegas. Because that’s where an act like this can make a fortune, clean up. That’s what you’ve gotta stay inside. It was amazing. I love you guys, by the way.”
Howie: “Da Republik is da bomb! Vote!”
During his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty noted, “Da Republik, the dance crew from the Dominican Republic, invaded the stage next with an alien apocalypse themed hip hop routine. The highlight of the performance were the flips and tricks, some of which were across three sports cars on stage. The judges were up on their feet at the end–Mel was hyped for them, Heidi was inspired by how passionate they are and Simon called them the best dance group they’ve seen so far in the live shows. Even Tyra commented on how much emotion they bring to their work! Hopefully their fans are as passionate and can push them through with enough votes.”
