In 2017, Paige Glenn, who was 8 years old at the time, and Artyon Celestine, who was 9 years old, danced to Footloose in a way that blew the judges away.
Paige and Artyon met at a dance class in California. When it came to dancing, they hit it off right away.
When they tried out for AGT with a performance of “Barbie Girl,” that was the beginning of their journey. Even though Simon didn’t like what they did, the rest of the judges thought it was great, so they were sent to the Judge Cuts.
Artyon and Paige chose the classic “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” for their second performance. Heidi Klum, Mel B, and guest judge Seal all stood up to applaud them.
Then, in the next episode, they came back with a great dance number to the song “Footloose.”
Their performance of Footloose was full of energy and sass, which made the crowd laugh out loud.
Paige even started her act on the table where the judges were sitting. Everyone in the room was impressed by the two young dancers’ upbeat routine, which was full of jumps, kicks, and twists. Despite this, though, they didn’t get enough votes to move on to the next round. Even though that was true, Mel B and Heidi Klum still stood up and cheered for them.
