Two cousins from Rajasthan are winning hearts with their performance on NBC's hit reality series America's Got Talent (AGT). Shakir and Rihan belong to the town of Fatehpur, but their passion for dance has helped them reach the stage of one of America's most popular reality shows. Now, their performance, which has already impressed judges on the latest season of AGT, is creating waves on social media.
A video of their performance was shared on YouTube two days ago by America's Got Talent, where it has been viewed over 4 lakh times. The video begins by showing the cousins interacting with judges Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell - who, after their performance, rise to give them a standing ovation.
In the video, nine-year-old Rihan matches steps with his elder cousin, 21, as they perform to Brother by Kodaline. Their flawless coordination as they jump, skip and somersault together earned them loud applause from the audience and a standing ovation from judges, who were seen smiling broadly after the performance ended.
