Junior and Emily Alabi are brother and sister salsa dancers competing on America’s Got Talent, Season 12. They not only wowed the audience and judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel with their talent (they spin like no one’s business) but moved them with their story, too. Junior explained that he got into trouble when he was younger — including an arrest. “Dance saved our lives,” Junior said.
Simon Cowell said their performance was “beyond extraordinary” and told them, “People like you make this show special.” America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
