14-Yr-Old’s Contortionist-Like Dance Will Touch Your Heart And Give You Goosebumps.

No matter how many unbelievable performances take place on the “America’s Got Talent” stage, talented folks like Mariandrea never cease to take our breath away! At only 14-years-old, this tiny dancer has been perfecting her craft for nine years – that means she was only 5-years-old when she got started! Still, in that time, she’s never taken on stage as large as “AGT.”

The adorable little girl seemed full of both excitement and nerves as she spoke to the judges about who she is and why she’s there. For her, winning the million-dollar prize would mean money for her future college, travels around the world, and makeup. But the reason she’s most passionate about dance ties back to where she’s from: Mexico.

“I’m here at ‘AGT’ because I really want to inspire all the younger women, Mexican women, to know they are limitless,” Mariandrea shared.

With the performance that followed, Mariandrea certainly accomplished that goal. At only 14-years-old, she’s able to convey such a variety of deep, complex emotions in both her movements and facial expressions. At one one point, the music shifts, and her movements follow suit, giving way to a contortionist-like performance.

“You have a real presence about you,” Simon Cowell said. “… This is what you’re meant to be doing.”

Watch Mariandrea’s moving performance in the video below.
