Tiny Dancing Duo’s Routine Leaves The ‘AGT’ Judges Speechless [VIDEO]
Yasha Jeltuhin and Daniela Avanzini auditioned for Season 8 of ‘AGT’ with a show-stopping routine. Their spunky personalities and ballroom dancing skills left the judges speechless. Check out their amazing 2013 audition below.
Yasha And Daniela Blew The ‘AGT’ Judges Away With Their Dancing
Yasha and Daniela were only 8 and 9 years old at the time of their ‘AGT’ audition. Heidi said that Daniela looks a bit like her youngest daughter Lou. When Heidi asked who the boss in the partnership is, Daniela confidently said “me.”
“In my house, the girls are the bosses too,” Heidi said. She was also curious what the adorable dancing duo would do with the prize money if they won the show. Daniela said she would give money to the poor and also buy a mansion.
“I’m going to save some for college,” Yasha said which had the whole audience laughing. The pair started off their routine dancing a samba to “Shake Senora” by Pitbull. It was the perfect combination of technical dance skills and fun crowd-pleasing moments. The music then transitioned to “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner. The pair that have been dancing together since they were 3 years old garnered huge cheers from the crowd.
“Amazing. I love you two. I can’t believe the way you can shake those hips around” Heidi said after watching Yasha and Daniela’s performance. “I wish I could do that like that. I might have to get some training from you.”
“You were just so on time and on point with the hand movements, hips and everything,” Mel B said. “The whole routine was just great. I’m kind of speechless actually.” Howie Mandel was just blown away by the fact that the pair have been dancing together since they were toddlers.

The Dancing Duo Have Performed On Several Other Television Shows
The judges all agreed to send Yasha and Daniela to Las Vegas. Though they were early standouts in the competition, their audition was their only performance that aired on television. ‘AGT’ wasn’t the only television appearance that these kid dancers made. The duo also got to perform on The Queen Latifah Show. Yasha and Daniela appeared on Sabado Gigante.
Daniela competed on So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation in 2016. She was partnered with Jonathan Platero and was the first contestant eliminated from the competition.
Daniela has continued to pursue dancing, singing and acting since her time on ‘AGT.’
Yasha is currently training as a circus artist and an acrobat.
Yasha and Daniela are just two of the many young talents that used their time on ‘AGT’ to launch their careers. Expect nothing but big things from both of them in the future.
