See The Mayyas' Stunning Return to the AGT Stage After Winning Last Season
The America's Got Talent Season 17 winners came back in 2023 for a gorgeous performance.
"We're so happy to be back here. It's been such an amazing year for us after our win," one member told Host Terry Crews after their routine.
All about The Mayyas
"I was always fascinated by nature and life and fiction. When your reality is hard, when you struggle in your life, you go deep in your art for you to be able to escape from reality. So these visions, they become reality to me. Like, in the beginning when I write the story, I'm in control, and then after that the story takes control. So it's something that absorbs you deep and it takes you in it," choreographer Nadim Cherfan told NBC Insider about what inspires his artistic ideas for the group.
The Mayyas perform with Beyonce
On January 21, The Mayyas and Beyonce joined forces for an epic performance in Dubai.
Then, in a September interview with NBC Insider, Cherfan talked about the special moment when the group found out they were performing with the iconic singer.
"I actually got to surprise the girls. I got them all in once place. I got them into a room, and I said: 'Are you ready?' They said 'Yes,' I said, 'We're performing with Beyonce,'" he said, with one member commenting that she thought it was a prank at first.
But it wasn't a prank, as the amazing performance took place at the Atlantis The Royal Resort. In a snapshot posted on The Mayyas' official Instagram page of the performance, Beyonce stands in the center of the stage in a bright red gown while The Mayyas surround her with their arms stretched out, framing her.
Cherfan said of the "Formation" singer, "She's an amazing artist. Professional, respectful, she's a diva. We are lucky to be witnessing this amazing Artist."
