In 2017, Paige Glenn, then 8 years old, and Artyon Celestine, then 9 years old, had the judges of America’s Got Talent floored with their killer dance routine to Footloose.
Paige and Artyon first met at a dance class in California and had instant chemistry when it came to dance.
The pair’s journey first started on AGT when they auditioned for the show with a performance to Barbie Girl. Although they did not impress Simon with their performance, the rest of the judges were thoroughly entertained and they were sent to the Judge Cuts.
For their second performance, Artyon and Paige chose a classic, I’ve Had the Time of my Life, which ended up getting them a standing ovation from Heidi Klum, Mel B, and guest judge Seal.
The pair then returned the next episode with a killer dancing number to Footloose.
Their Footloose performance was full of energy and cheek, which had the audience roaring as they watched.
Paige even began the performance on the judge’s table. Complete with jumps, kicks, and multiple twists, the two dancing prodigies impressed everyone in the room with their upbeat routine. Despite this, however, they unfortunately did not gain enough votes to move on to the semi-finals. That did not stop Mel B and Heidi Klum from once again giving them a standing ovation though!
