Double Dutch crew Waffle consists of five members, out of which one is an actor, one a performer, and three others who work desk jobs.

Daichi, Taisuke, Elina, Kai, and Tatsuya walked out on stage in coordinating oversized shirts and jackets with sneakers looking like a nineties boyband but bringing so much more.

America’s Got Talent is about to have more fun!

Introductions were made and when judge Heidi Klum heard the group’s name, she replied, “Yummy.”

Simon Cowell, who is more often than not in a good mood these days, said that it was a “great name.”

The group is from Tokyo, Japan, and though some are performers and others working desk jobs, they came together to do what they loved most.

Waffle flew all the way from Japan to show AGT their Double Dutch routine using only two jump ropes. They chose “Let’s Groove” by Earth, Wind & Fire for their act.

The Japanese stars began to show off fun dance moves with some flips as they jumped rope.

No one missed a step, with the crowd and the judges smiling the whole time.

So you could say they’re a well put together crew!

Jaws all on the floor as the double dutch team from Tokyo began to groove with their rope, not once missing a step or a skip, which would result in a bad injury for sure.
