Controversial Outlawz Divide Judges on America’s Got Talent 2016 (VIDEO)
Outlawz proved to be the most controversial act of the night on America’s Got Talent 2016 on Tuesday, July 5, 2016!
They are dancers who perform to “Lean On” by Major Lazer & DJ Snake, starting out in a period formation and launching into a complicated routine that features popping, locking, and surprisingly strong synchronous formations. Seriously, I’ve seen dance crews on ABDC who weren’t this in-sync. The judges are incredibly impressed. Or, at least, Simon is. Dude is grinning from ear-to-ear. Heidi wants to know why she doesn’t feel the same as the crowd and the judges, because she didn’t love it. Howie did, however, and he adored the look, which he compares to an Amish Hip-Hop dance troupe. Mel B is split down the middle. She liked them a lot, but feels they didn’t do anything new. Simon says he’s seen a lot of groups before, but he felt this group showed five different personalities. He loved it. The judges vote, and Howie is a yes, Heidi is a no, and Simon pleads with Mel to give them a shot. Mel B asks the audience what they think, so she decides to say yes to them, which — with Simon’s yes — gives them enough to votes to get through. Watch the performance video below:
