Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Mini ‘Dirty Dancing’ Duo on America’s Got Talent
Who: Artyon and Paige
Why we chose them: We can’t get enough of America’s Got Talent’s cutest little dancing duo! Meet Artyon and Paige, who wowed the judges with their own rendition of Dirty Dancing’s classic “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” routine.
The pair, ages eight and nine, are adorably kid-like as they giggle and answer the judges’ pre-performance questions in unison. But once they start their routine, it is clear their skills reach far beyond their years. Sharp choreography, impressive jumps and even some synchronized acrobatics had the audience and the judges on their feet by the end of the performance. Oh, and did we mention they totally bring it with their facial expressions?
The duo originally met in dance class, and have since become best friends—they even joke about getting married someday! But no matter what happens, “we’re always going to dance together…” Paige says.
So, we’re calling it: This definitely won’t be the last we see of these talented performers!
Fun fact: AGT judge Heidi Klum and guest judge Seal joked during the show that Artyon and Paige are “a little mini Seal and Heidi!”
