Filipino all-male dance group Junior New System got a standing ovation from America's Got Talent judges for their dance performance while wearing six-inch heels. Before their performance, members of the dance group cried after admitting that they were street children in the Philippines.  



Filipino all-male dance group Junior New System makes it to the next round of America's Got Talent Season 13.

Junior New System was one of the first groups to audition during the pilot episode aired on May 29, 2018.

AGT judges Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell were so impressed that the judges gave a standing ovation to the Pinoy dancers. 


The group surprised everyone when they added a twist to their dance routine by swapping their rubber shoes for six-inch heels!


The crowd cheered when the members performed flips and pyramids while wearing six-inch heels.



Junior New System not only earned a standing ovation but received a "YES" from all four judges, allowing the group to enter the next round.

Prior to their performance, the members were moved to tears when they introduced themselves to the judges, after sharing their journey and reflecting on their lives as street children in the Philippines.



Before joining America's Got Talent, Junior New System was a golden buzzer beater during the semi-finals of Asia's Got Talent's first season.

This allowed them to automatically join the competition's grand finals.

The male group was also named as Senior Grand Champion of the World in the 2016 World Championship of Performing Arts (WCOPA).
