Lebanese dance group Mayyas receive high praise at ‘America’s Got Talent’ semi-final

The Lebanese all-female dance crew Mayyas made a spectacular return to the “America’s Got Talent” stage, earning a golden buzzer and hugs from “Modern Family” star and judge Sofia Vergara on the semi-final on Tuesday night.

The all-female group received high praise as well as a standing ovation from all four judges — Vergara, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel.

Cowell also remarked that, “Every single one of us in this room, I promise you, are going to remember this moment. This is not just going to change your lives, and this is going to sound very dramatic, this is a performance that changes the world. It was as good as it gets … respect.”

Just eleven acts competed on Tuesday for two spots in the final,a chance to win the $1 million prize and the opportunity to headline a show in Las Vegas. The semi-finals will run with biweekly episodes until Wednesday. The finals will be shown on September 13 and 14.

This is not their first talent show experience for Mayyas. The group previously won season six of “Arabs Got Talent” in 2019 and participated in “Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions” in the same year as well.
