File this one under: Gotta see it to believe it! On the most recent episode of ‘America’s Got Talent,’ one contestant proved that age truly is just a number!
On the June 9 episode of America’s Got Talent, Tao Porchon-Lynch, who is 96 years young, completely stole the show and floored the judges. Dancing alongside her partner, Vard— who is only 70 years her junior– Tao got down to what we all get down to: Pitbull! Trust us, you are going to need to see Tao’s moves for yourself to believe them! Check out the jaw-dropping video now!
And here we are, hoping we will be able to spoon feed ourselves creamed corn by the time we’re 96!
Despite having had three hip replacements, Tao can still shake what her momma gave her, in the best way possible. “I don’t mean to be rude,” host Nick Cannon tells her. “But, how many years young are you?” When Tao tells him the magic number, he too cannot believe it. “That’s amazing. That’s talent right there, they should just give you the million dollars tonight.”
Can’t say we disagree! Her partner also echoes that sentiment. “She’s 96, but sometimes I think she lies,” Vard says. “But it’s the truth, she’s 96.”
After she gives us a little tidbit of her insane background (it involves both Gandhi and Marilyn Monroe), we then get to see her put her money where her mouth is. The performance starts off pretty traditionally, as the two waltz together. But then, in the blink of an eye, the beat drops and we hear the familiar tones of Pitbull.
Truly, truly, it is unbelievable what Tao precedes to do. As Vard lifts and spins her, Tao shows off moves that most humans cannot achieve at the height of their physical agility. Well, after all, it is called America’s Got Talent!
What do you think of Tao’s performance?
