25-year-old Japanese native Shu Takada mesmerized judges and audiences on top of the America’s Got Talent stage with his brain-melting dance and yo-yo combo, quickly getting the party started.
Kicking things off a little on the rough side, judge Simon Cowell would reveal he’s not too fond of yo-yo acts on the famed talent show, stating, “they’ve been a bit boring.”
Simon’s honesty would quickly harbor in his own amazement as Shu Takada would begin his heart-pounding performance, starting off with a rather traditional walk-the-dog maneuver.
All before leaping backward into a flurry of dance and yo-yo expertise that had the crowd eating out of the palm of his yo-yo-wielding hands. Paired with dual yo-yos, Shu Takada would showcase a hilarious and exciting act.
Judge Heidi Klum would express her excitement for Shu Takada while saying, “the best yo-yoing we’ve ever seen,” with Howie Mandel agreeing, stating that what set Shu Takada apart was his fabulous dance routine.
Back to judge Simon Cowell, the look on his face through the entire electrifying performance is enough to show his own personal excitement over the yo-yo act, which had Shu Takada smiling from ear to ear throughout the whole performance.
Shu Takada came prepared to amaze and delight and, with the power of his yo-yo and dance skills, succeeded in showcasing his unique talent and knowledge on how to work a crowd to his favor.
