Merrick Hanna Shines In Dance To ‘Something Wild’ By Lindsey Stirling On America’s Got Talent

By Shawn Rice

Merrick Hanna delivered a unique dance to “Something Wild” by America’s Got Talent alum Lindsey Stirling featuring Andrew McMahon. The 12-year-old dancer showed off his signature robotic dance moves during his performance for the Judges Cuts round on the show.

“The way that you managed to tell the story within your performance makes you different, relevant, cool,” judge Simon Cowell said during his critique. Cowell gave a standing ovation afterward, as did Mel B.

“The way that you managed to tell the story within your performance makes you different, relevant, cool,” the mogul told Hanna. Howie Mandel noted that every movement was “so right on and so exact.” He added, “There’s so many good people, but I’ll fight for you.”

Merrick already has an impressive commercial reel. Last year, he was one of the stars of the H&M Back to School campaign.
