America’s Got Talent has been showcasing incredible dancers, singers, acrobats, and comedians since the show first premiered in 2006. Many of these artists have gone on to have amazing careers.
America’s Got Talent has showcased performers of all ages, from young kids to seniors. In 2013, two young performers made a splash on the AGT stage: Yasha Jeltuhin and Daniela Avanzini.
Yasha was only nine and Daniela was just eight when they performed on AGT.
Even though the pair was young, they already had years of experience. They told the judges they had been dancing together since they were only three.
In an adorable interview before they went on stage, an interviewer asked if they were going to become boyfriend and girlfriend when they grew up. Yasha said yes, but spitfire Daniela quickly shut him down.
“I would not want this to be my boyfriend,” Daniela said while Yasha laughed. “He’s not my type, like, he needs to go to the beach and tan.”
Still, while the pair were on the stage, they shared an incredible connection. The two did a samba routine set to Pitbull and Tina Turner. They performed some amazing moves during this routine, and they always hit their marks.
The judges were very impressed with these two young dancers.
“I love you two. I can’t believe the way you can shake those hips around. Wow. I might have to get some training from you,” judge Heidi Klum said.
Viewers were also very impressed with Yasha and Daniela. A video of their routine has now been viewed over 15 million times!
All four judges voted for Daniela and Yasha to move onto the Las Vegas round.
Unfortunately, Yasha and Daniela were eliminated soon after making it to the Vegas round. Still, though, they didn’t let that stop them from doing what they love! In the six years since they performed on AGT, both dancers have done tons of performances both together and separately.
In 2015, Yasha and Daniela performed a cha-cha routine together at a fundraising event for the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Tower of Talent. The event ended up raising almost a quarter of a million dollars for the hospital!
In recent years, Yasha has begun training in aerial and circus arts. He has performed some incredible acrobatic routines that seem to defy gravity!
Daniela has continued performing samba dances, including this high-energy routine set to Camila Cabello’s “Havana.”
Yasha and Daniela may not have made it too far in AGT, but they used their viral performance on the show as a launching pad to start the rest of their dancing careers. We can’t wait to what these two talented dancers get up to in the future!
