Two local dancers have made the finals in Canada's Got Talent.
Burnaby boys Devan Isaac, 15, and Justin Nicolas, 14, are part of the seven-member FRESHH dance crew (the double h stands for hip hop). Devan and Justin are both Burnaby Mountain Secondary students. The group recently made the final round of the televised talent show on Citytv. FRESHH will go on to compete for $100,000, a Nissan GT-R and a slot on the roster of performers at Citytv's annual New Year's Eve Bash.
The first round of Canada's Got Talent was a cross-country audition, where judges narrowed the performers down to 39 semi-finalists. The show is still in the semi-finals stage, but FRESHH has already made it to the next round. Each week, two acts advance to the finals, one chosen by viewers' votes, and one act chosen by the judges.
There will be 12 acts in the finals going head to head for the grand prize. FRESHH will next appear on the show on May 13, at 8 p.m. local time on Citytv.
