As parents, watching your little kid perform at the school talent show or recital is peak cute-fest. What we mean when we say that is there are fewer times where people expect their kids to mess up and pull out their phones to record it. These public moments are usually hilarious and cute, all wrapped into one bundle, and we love to watch them.
Despite expecting mass confusion and mistakes through the performance, sometimes, there is a shocking performance that is actually good!
These are quite rare and don’t usually happen until at LEAST middle school, but one video seems to have proven us wrong! A group of 3rd-grade boys decided that they wanted to perform at their school talent show, and the results were actually really great – and cute!
As long as you keep in mind that these are mere 3rd graders we are watching, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
The theme of their performance is “glow dance,” and it has been featured on Americas Got Talent and a few other well-known shows. Essentially, you put on a black onesie, put glow sticks all over your body in certain shapes, and turn the lights out! The resulting look is unique and entertaining to watch.
These boys decided to go the glow-dance route for their school performance.
As the music starts, we hear the announcer welcome them in, “Give it up forrrrrrr, the GLOW BOYS!!!” As the crowd cheers, the lights go dark, and everything goes black.
The curtain pulls apart, and we see the boys all standing there in their glowed-up outfits!
It’s incredibly cute to see tiny humans silhouetted in glow-sticks. When the music starts, we hear that it’s a classic! The Eye of the Tiger starts with its strong power chords, and as each BUM, BUM-BUM-BUM, BUM-BUM-BUHHHH hits, one of the kids leaps and spins around.
The music hits a quick change, and they start grooving to each new song.
Besides the quick reality check that Gagnam Style came out EIGHT years ago, watching them move through all the famous hits of 2013 is super amusing. They dance, leap, and laugh their way through song after song.
Like any good crowd, they shriek and laugh as they see their classmates having a blast on stage in their outfits.
What is a 3rd-grade talent show without high-pitched giggling and incessant laughter?
Nothing. Thankfully, this crowd doesn’t leave their classmates out to dry on stage – they shower them with applause and laughter the entire way through the performance. They truly enjoy it!
As the boys keep moving through the songs, you can see that they really did their best to prepare for the event.
While this isn’t a professional-level performance, we didn’t click on it because of that!
We wanted to see cute kids dancing and having fun on a stage, and that’s EXACTLY what we got.
You know that parents got plenty of footage and awesome pictures that they can all look at for years to come. Also, we HAVE to hope they won the talent show, right?
