America’s Got Talent 2013 Audition:
Dance-ish Guy Kenichi Ebina!
On America's Got Talent 2013 tonight, we were a bit hesitant when we saw this guy's intro and thought "oh no, here comes a bad one" after he said he does “dance, marital arts and mime” together. But boy were we wrong!
Amazingly, this guy is actually crazy awesome! We’ve never seen anyone dance-ish like this. It’s like he’s on strings, or a built with robot parts. Some of these moves just look physically impossible! We are sorry we pre-judged you from your intro, Mr. Dance-ish Kenichi Ebina Guy!
Judges: The America’s Got Talent 2013 judges are up on their feet. Heidi Klum says he has control over his body that is insane. Mel B says it was was “off the chain!” Howard Stern says he could watch this “magnificent” guy all day long. Howie Mandel says it is the best dancing they have seen yet. It’s four yes (well, and one yes-ish from Howie) votes in loud succession and he is through to Vegas!
Do you think Dance-ish Kenichi Ebina can make it all the way to the end?
A dance performer. His solo act features his unique self-taught style which combines a number of different styles, including freestyle hip-hop, mime, jazz, and ethnic dance. In 2006-2007 he won the Apollo Amateur Night seven times and became grand champion for the season. In 2001 his dance troupe BiTriP won 1st place at the Apollo Amateur Night. He remains the only two-time grand champion.
He recently performed at the Chicago auditions of America's Got Talent season 8, doing a Matrix-style "dance-ish" performance that wowed the judges, garnering 3 yeses and a "yes-ish" from Howie.
