Inspiring dancer Andrew leaves Cheryl in floods of tears – The Greatest Dancer | Auditions


Look where we are. Hello. Hello.
What’s your name? Andrew. Would you like to take a seat?
Thank you. Where, Mum? Sit over here. Right, it’s time for showtime! Cos it’s all about me now, Mum. Is it? It always is about you.
AMELIA LAUGHS Mum, look. Got your dancing feet on. Don’t start doing tap dancing. Er… Don’t you change your routine. Mum, I’m not, Mum. HE TAPS RHYTHMICALLY It’s like flamenco, isn’t it?
Yeehaw! # Think about it # There must be higher love # Down in my heart # Hidden in the stars above # Without it # Life is wasted time # Look inside your heart # I’ll look inside mine… # Hi, I’m Donna, and I’m Andrew’s mum. Andrew started showing an interest
in dance when he was about 11. He really got into
Strictly Come Dancing. He used to re-enact all
the dances in our living room. He had a natural rhythm, he knew to put a tango face on
or his hips to the samba, and it just made him feel joyful
and that’s what started him on his love of dance. I think they’re going to love it,
Mum. Just got to remember to use the
whole stage and look forward. I’ve got a plan. Have you? Oh, dear. He’s got a plan. Yeah.
It’s a bit worrying. If you fall over, remember,
just carry on. If you go wrong… What, fall over?
Just carry on, yeah? I… I’m a balanced boy. You’re a balanced boy.
Like Billy Elliot. Andrew, when he walks,
he is quite flat-footed and I call him the plodder and we
have a bit of a laugh about it, that stomps around. But when the music comes on,
he has balletic movements, he points his toes,
he is just so graceful. Dance has helped Andrew’s
confidence enormously. His self-esteem has rocketed. To see Andrew on
The Greatest Dancer, auditioning for these people,
I will be so proud. Beyond proud. Oh, look, Tom. Tom, there he is. Tom, Tom. There’s Andrew. # Bring me a higher love… # Go on, Andrew. # Bring me a higher love, oh… # Come on, brother. Going to start dancing? Go for it. # I could rise above
on this higher love… # You can start anywhere
that you want to. I love you, brother. # Bring me a higher love # Where is that higher love
I keep thinking of? # MUSIC: Can’t Stop The Feeling
by Justin Timberlake Come on, Andrew. # I got this feelin’ inside my bones # It goes electric,
wavy when I turn it on… # Yes, Andrew. # All through my city,
all through my home… # Get your fingers crossed. Oh! # We’re flyin’ up, no ceilin’
When we in our zone… # Let’s go, Andrew! # Sunshine in my pocket # Got that good soul in my feet # I feel that hot blood
in my body… # Come on, Andrew! # Ooh! # Look at all of these lights. # Movin’ so phenomenally… # APPLAUSE AND CHEERING # Under the lights
when everything goes # Nowhere to hide when I’m gettin’
you close # When we move,
well, you already know… # Go on, Andrew! # Just imagine, just imagine # Nothin’ I can see but you
when you dance, dance, dance # Feel a good,
good creepin’ up on you # So keep dancin’ # I can’t stop the feeling # So just dance, dance, dance # I can’t stop the feeling # Got this feeling in my body
I can’t stop the feeling # Got this feeling in my body # I can’t stop the feeling # Wanna see you move your body # I can’t stop the feeling # Got this feeling in my body,
come on # Break it down # Got this feeling in my body # Can’t stop the feeling # Got this feeling in my body,
come on. # APPLAUSE AND CHEERING Yes, Andrew! CHEERING MUSIC: I Get To Love you
by Ruelle # One look at you # My whole life… # Oh, well done, mate. # Falls in line # I prayed for you… # Oh, my goodness!
That was unbelievable. # Before I called you mine… # CHEERING I just feel really moved
by the whole thing. Like, that was amazing and to
watch you and see your excitement, see how much you thrive from an
audience is such a special moment. You should be really
proud of yourself. You clearly need to
be doing this more because it does something for
your soul. You’re in your element. # I get to love you # It’s the best thing
that I’ll do… # You did it, buddy. That was absolutely incredible. But, I just have to say, I think you’re going to inspire a
lot of people with that performance you just gave us today,
so thank you so much for that gift. CHEERING He’s a bit overwhelmed by you,
Matthew. Oh…! Cos Glee is his absolute
favourite programme. Yeah. Apart from Strictly, obviously. OTI: Oh! Andrew, you are amazing! CHEERING Do you know what?
I think you’re the total showman. Once the mirrors opened, you were
a whole different person. I was like, “Yes! Yes, Andrew!” Andrew, how are you feeling? ANDREW: Fantastic. CROWD: Aww. I’ll be in tears for him.
You’ll be in tears? Aw. Mum, you must be so proud. I’m beyond proud. I really am beyond proud.
He does, you’re quite right, just comes to life in dance
and it’s his absolute passion. APPLAUSE AND CHEERING I want to be up there. You want
to up there? Yeah, see him. Do you want to go up?
Yeah. Come on, then. # When the sharpest words
want to cut me down… # Wasn’t that amazing? Come on, Tom.
Come with me, mate. Ready, bro? Aww. Guys…
CHEERING Andrew’s best mate, Tom,
wants to say hi. # Look out cos here I come # And I’m marching on to
the beat I drum # I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies # This is me
Oh-oh-oh-oh # Oh-oh-oh-oh… # Well done, mate.
Come on, Tom, let’s get off. OTI: Yes, Andrew!
CHEERING This is why we love dance because
it makes us all feel so good. Guys, give it up for Andrew! APPLAUSE AND CHEERING # And I’m marching on to
the beat I drum # Marching on, marching on
I’m not scared to be seen # I make no apologies # This is me # When the sharpest words
wanna cut me down # Whenever the fire’s gone
I’m sending a flood # Gonna drown them out
Whenever the fire’s gone # Oh-oh-oh-oh # In the depths of my heart
Oh-oh-oh-oh # This is me. # Yes, yes, yes. That was
overwhelming. That was so amazing! # Bring me a higher love… # Wow, you did it! It’s just wonderful,
watching him do what he loves most. Hey, that was your stage, wasn’t it?
Oh, my God. His spirit is what this show
is all about. Yes. Yeah. ANDREW: I loved it. I loved it. Thank you, Mum. You OK? # Where’s that higher love
I keep thinking of? #
