Talent shows have to be the most entertaining programs on TV. Every week, we see amazing talents unfolding in front of our eyes, and many times what people have to put on stage is simply mesmerizing and takes our breath away. However, with so many different performances taking place in America’s Got Talent, The X-Factor, or The Greatest Dancer, we have to agree that impressing the panel of strict judges isn’t at all an easy task. Why? Because it looks as though they have already seen it all. However, every now and then, someone with exquisite skills decides to try their luck and their performance is so powerful that they quickly become country’s sweethearts.
The Greatest Dancer airs on BBC and it gathers more and more viewers every week. Recently, a very special group that stole the attention of the nation took place in the competition. The dancing group Autism With Attitude is the reason why all eyes are on the show.
The concept of this show, which is hosted by singer Alesha Dixon and judges Matthew Morrison of Glee fame, Strictly Come Dancing pro Oti Mabuse, and platinum-selling singer Cheryl, is quite different from everything you’ve seen so far.
It sees dancers of any age and dance style compete to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing. Many talented dancers got their chance to show the world what they do best, but it seems like the members of Autism With Attitude really stood out and stole everyone’s heart. They appeared on the fourth week of the series.
One interesting aspect of the show is that the decision whether someone goes to the next round is in the hands of the audience. They are the ones who have the final word, so the competitors should try to impress them. If 75% of the audience love the performance, they vote to open the secret mirror, a portal to the next stage of the competition.
The group of kids on the Autism spectrum did their best to get the chance to open their path to their dreams and we have to say we simply love their routine.
The group’s members all have attended the same school and now work along with their dance coach Jonathan who is very supportive of what they do. A mom of one of the dancers spoke about the goals of these aspiring young people and it brought tears to everyone’s eyes. She said:
“They just want to prove to everyone that, regardless of your abilities and your capabilities, that you can achieve anything.”
They presented an amazing hip-hop dancing choreography involving some crazy moves. The audience loved it so much that they received standing ovation and a loud applause. Needless to say, the crowd was more than happy to open the mirror for this group. They are now one step closer to fulfilling their dreams.
