Young dancers Michael and Angelina Novikova, aged eight and six respectively, set the stage for America’s Got Talent on fire during the auditions episode that airs Tuesday (July 13th).
The duo’s participation was all the more special, as it came six years after Howie Mandel had criticized their older brother’s performance on the direct a little too harshly.
A situation with which Simon Cowell had a lot of fun, the latter even inviting the mother of the two young prodigies to join them on stage to say a few words to his colleague.
“I would like to tell you that you have been very indelicate. You saw a young child dance on stage with all his heart, he was doing his best, and you were very hard on him, ”said the main interested party, while Simon Cowell was happy to amplify the reach of each of his words.
A small attack in order which could not have been more ironic, considering that the judge of British origin is himself known for not having the tongue in his pocket.
Afterwards, Michael and Angelina presented a very energetic dance number that wowed the judges and wowed Howie Mandel, who even went so far as to apologize to the mother of the two participants for the remarks he had made to the time.
