Junior New System, a dance group from The Philippines that became famous for dancing in high heels, returned to “America’s Got Talent” during the Semifinals 1 episode. These guys previously were in danger of being eliminated in the Dunkin’ Save, with “AGT” judge Howie Mandel telling them that they should begin in their high heels next time. They listened, and the reaction from the judges this time around was extremely positive, with Heidi Klum calling their performance “explosive.” Watch the “Americas Got Talent” video above, read the judges’ comments below, and then make your predictions before Wednesday’s results show.

Simon Cowell: “I’m with Mel. That’s what we call a Semifinal performance.”
Heidi Klum: “I mean, please someone call the bomb squad because this was explosive! And can I tell you guys something? I mean, you guys are absolutely insane. You create so many wow moments. So many times I sit here and I go, wow, oh my gosh, that really hurt — like you flipping backwards, landing on your head without hands. I’ve never seen this before. Wow!”
Howie Mandel: “How exciting is it when you see what listening to me does for you? I said start with the heels, you started with the heels even before we saw you. It was spectacular. I know what I’m talking about. I am fantastic!”
In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the performance: “With another heels routine, Junior New System from The Philippines hoped to step up their game this time with stunts and a routine that they’d never done before. The performance was to a medley of song by pop stars and began with the guys in a nook below the stage with only their heels showing to the audience. From there they rose to the stage for multiple set pieces of flips and tricks before kicking off the heels and ending the routine barefoot for more tricks. The judges erupted into a standing ovation immediately and were stunned by the explosiveness of the routine.”
