The first six dance acts that are confirmed to compete this week are:Â Bev and Hap, large youth group The Vibe, Jittin’ Genius Brandon Hobbs, Chi-Town Finest Breakers, D’Angelo & Amanda, and Austen Acevedo.Â Viewers will recall Bev and Hap as the elderly duo that were so elated to make it to the short list, that they did push-ups on stage.Â Bev is a young 83 years old, one of the oldest dancers in the competition.Â Chi-Town Finest Breakers are a brother and sister break dancing group and a judge favorite.Â Young dancing pair D’Angelo and Amanda, ages 10 and 11, stole both the judges’ and audience’s hearts when they revealed they were also a couple and planned to one day get married.Â However, Amanda insists on marrying in their twenties, while D’Angelo wants to wait until they are at least thirty.Â
