The group’s hyper-showy dance moves and earned praise from the celebrity judges to go on to the deliberation round.
Music producer David Foster said: “For me, in general, I thought the choreography was really unique and it told a story. And it doesn’t always happen on this stage. So good going!”
“It was definitely a solid performance. I mean, there were a few minor slip-ups but I don’t think it hindered your overall performance. You guys all had very charismatic expressions and were all very fierce. I liked it,” said Korean superstar Jay Park, who joined the troupe for a few minutes on stage and showed off a few moves himself.
Anggun, an Indonesian music icon also said she was entertained and liked it. So the Hanoi X-Girls got three yesses from the judges to enter the next round.
