See Why This Double Dutch Crew Had All the AGT Judges' Jaws on the Floor

Waffle, waffle, waffle!

By Tayi Sanusi

Another day, another jaw-dropping America’s Got Talent Season 17 Audition. This time, we can’t stop fan-girling over Waffle—and no, we don’t mean the breakfast food. 

How to Watch

Watch America’s Got Talent Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock

Waffle is a double dutch crew from Tokyo who turned the AGT stage upside down during the August 2nd episode with their gravity-defying jump-rope skills. 

Part acrobatic Act, part dance routine, and all pieced together with wildly-impressive double dutch sequences, Waffle did not come to play. As if these all-star jump-ropers could read our minds, they chose Earth, Wind & Fire’s "Let's Groove" as the perfect song to choreograph their moves to. 

Any performer worth their salt knows part of the magic is making their talent seem effortless, and this is where Waffle really delivers. Anyone who’s ever jumped rope knows the margin for error is incredibly small. As the group bobs and weaves in and out of formations without a single slip-up, they make every move look like they could do it in their sleep. 

Watch Waffle's full performance in the video, above. The Judges' ruling on the Act will be revealed during the August 2nd episode, which starts at 8/7c on NBC. 

"Nothing gets redundant, and nothing gets the same," Judge Heidi Klum told Access Hollywood in mid-April about her experience filming AGT. "Every day is new and different. I mean, yes, we [the Judges and Host] might be the same, but you see all these crazy, different people on the stage. We're having the best time. I always call it a 'rollercoaster of emotions,' because a person comes and they're singing. The next is an aerialist. The next one is a contortionist or a comedian. Everyone has a story to tell because they're real people. They're not actors. This is not a movie. This is real life. It's always fun to hear the stories...it never gets boring."
