Nikolaj Lund and Marta Kocik, otherwise known as The Joker and Harley Quinn performed on Denmark’s Got Talent. The pair perfectly embodied the iconic comic book characters in their ballroom dance routine that had the judges in awe. Check out their very theatrical 2019 audition below.
The Joker And Harley Quinn Dazzled The ‘Denmark’s Got Talent’ Judges
This dancing duo introduced themselves as The Joker and Harley Quinn and the judges were losing their minds. They loved the makeup and commitment to the costumes. Niko even painted fake tattoos on his body and had silver teeth. They performed a very dramatic dance routine where they managed to stay in character the whole time and keep the judges and the audience engaged. They worked very well together and both nailed their character’s crazy personalities.
“We saw the movie Suicide Squad. It is a story of a love/hate relationship between Joker and Harley, taken to a level of madness. The story attracted us a lot because we wanted to push ourselves and the boundaries of our art form” they told Talent Recap exclusively. “Instead of the classical and elegant style of ballroom dancing, we wanted to show people another side without limitations and rules, where everything is allowed.
It was a truly freeing moment for us as artists.”
The judges stood up on their feet after watching their audition and sent them to the Live Shows. They performed a new Joker and Harley Quinn routine. This time the storyline followed the plot of the movie Suicide Squad where the Joker breaks Harley Quinn out of jail. Once again they mesmerized everyone with their chemistry and acting skills. The pair have been dancing together for over a decade so it’s no wonder how they are so in sync with each other.
The couple made it to the finale where they put on a very twisted wedding performance that starts off with Harley Quinn tossing petals as she walks down the aisle. At the end of the routine, she throws her bouquet into the audience. This dancing duo finished the competition in third place. “The result didn’t come out quite in our favor, but wow we feel like winners,” the couple wrote on Instagram. “Thanks to all our fans, family, and friends for all the love and support. Would have been almost impossible without you.”
What Has The Couple Been Up To Since Competing On The Show?
After competing on Denmark’s Got Talent, Niko and Marta are still together and dancing as always. “Getting appreciation from great artists and idols from all over the world, when our video went viral, was truly heartwarming,” they told us. It seems like the pair have been making the most of their quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic by spending time together and working on some fun dance moves. “It’s important to keep yourself motivated and inspired,” they wrote on Instagram. “If corona has put a stop to some of your goals, make some short term ones.”
Just recently, they began exploring Flamenco dancing, a style of art that incorporates the precision of song, dance and music that originated in Spain. “We are constantly trying to improve, and through researching other styles we keep ourselves motivated in these challenging times” they continued. “When traveling and performing is not possible at the moment we have the last period made social media our stage.”
Niko and Marta also danced in their garden in what they labelled as the Garden Challenge. They encouraged their fans to get up and dance in their gardens and they will repost the videos on their Instagram story.
