People : A 71-year-old Thai woman inspired the judges and audience in “America’s Got Talent”

 

Quin Bommelji, who grew up in Thailand’s rural Mahasarakham province before moving to the US shocked the judges and studio audience when she revealed her true age, 71 years. And when the music began, Quin and her 35-year-old dance partner, Misha Vlasof, brought the house down with a routine that features splits, spins and lifts on 1 August 2018’s night.

Guest judge, Martina Mcbride said “ It was truly remarkable performance…It just really moved me.”, then pressed the Golden Buzzer, sending confetti all over the stage. This means Quin and her partner were granted an automatic place in the semi-final.

 Quin thanked the crowd with a gracious wai, a Thai hand gesture used in greeting and expressing gratitude.  Asked what’s her secret in staying youthful and active, Quin gave a simple answer- diet and exercise.  “I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits, I eat Isaan food, and I love sticky rice.”
