Ellen: Kevin & Beverly America’s Got Talent
Kevin and Beverly are going to be featured on America’s Got Talent. Kevin said he thought they were going to win. He said it very confidentially.
Ellen asked them what they would do with all the money they’d win if they won the contest. Kevin said that he would save the money for college and buy a house for his family. Beverly said she was going to buy a lot of toys. Ellen said she hoped there was enough money for all of that.
Ellen: Kevin & Beverly Dance Performance
These kids were nothing short of amazing. There are adult dancers that I think jsut aren’t as good as these two. Kevin spun Beverly around and flipped her a few times and the two had incredible foot work. They even had a section of their dance when they both had dance solos, showcasing how good they were at the craft. I was particularly impressed with Kevin’s work, but Beverly was an incredible dancer as well. Twitch said that he needed to learn how to do that.
