Izzy and Easton were robbed! That’s what 36% of “America’s Got Talent” fans think, according to the results of our recent poll. These kid dancers, ages 11 and 14, were instant favorites after their initial audition in which they portrayed a sister who watches her older brother going off to war. But their return appearance in the second Judge Cuts episode didn’t impress judges Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union, Howie Mandel and Dwyane Wade as much, so they were eliminated. Do you now agree with “AGT” fans that Izzy and Easton should receive a wild card slot in the upcoming live shows? Sound off down in the comments section.

“We’re gonna tell another story portraying two warriors that are fighting to make it to the next round,” Easton declared about their second contemporary dance performance. As the childhood friends took the stage, Julianne noticed that Izzy was wearing point shoes, which at her age means “she’s really good.”
Izzy and Easton then delivered a flawless performance for the audience, complete with several exciting twists and jumps. “You guys are super creative and imaginative,” raved dance expert Julianne. Gabrielle chimed in, “The work that you put in, it absolutely shows.” Unfortunately, the duo ended up being one of the 11 acts who failed to make it to the live shows from this second week of judge cuts.
