Dancers Gao Lin and Liu Xin brought classical dancing with a twist to Asia’s Got Talent in 2015. The duo from China performed some death-defying tricks and still managed to incorporate emotional storylines into their routines. Check out one of their most memorable performances down below that left all of the judges totally speechless.
Gao Lin and Liu Xin Put On An Emotional Performance On ‘Asia’s Got Talent’
The couple first gained acclaim when they auditioned for Asia’s Got Talent in 2015. During their audition, the acrobatic ballet act had some extremely dangerous moves to show off. The routine incorporated a lot of balancing, partner work and trust for the couple. During the routine, judge Melanie C’s jaw was on the ground the entire time. She gave the pair her Golden Buzzer which sent them straight through to the Live Shows.
The pair stepped it up for the Grand Finals where they danced to “Unconditional” by Katy Perry. You could tell by the looks on the judges faces that they were mesmerized by the love story that was portrayed during the performance. Judge Vanness Wu was nearly brought to tears and David Foster said the piece reminded him of his own love story. They did reach the finals during this season but came up just short of the win.
In 2017, they competed on ‘BGT’ and after an administrative blunder about their visas, their fate in the competition was in question. The pair also went on to compete on ‘BGT: Champions.’ They said that they wanted to have a baby and this would be one last time to put on a groundbreaking performance before they embark on the journey of parenthood. Though Gao and Liu really put their trust in each other on display and attempted some very dangerous moves, it was not enough to advance on in the competition.
Where Are They Now?
After competing on ‘BGT: Champions,’ Gao and Liu performed in a cabaret-style show called “Vorhang Auf” in July. They continue to update their Instagram account with pictures and videos of them trying out new death-defying tricks and dance moves.
The couple uploaded a very quick travel vlog to YouTube at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. In the video, they documented all of the new safety precautions in place to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Gao and Liu are seriously the coolest couples ever and even started practicing their skills at home. Not only have they taken on some of the world’s biggest stages like Asia’s Got Talent and China’s Got Talent, but they can bring entertainment to you right from home. In one video posted to their Instagram account, Gao is laying on the floor while Liu is balancing on his feet. That’s only half of their incredible at home acrobatics as they also have practiced their handstands on top of the coffee table and hand balancing.
What did you think of Gao and Liu’s act that earned them acclaim on Asia’s Got Talent and ‘BGT: Champions’?
