Watching it live can be very emotional – when you can see with your very own eyes how they made sacrifices under the sun just to entertain the crowd. These are people like us who made mistakes in their lifetime – but this does not mean that they won’t be getting up and about again. Perhaps, the dancing routine has taught them discipline and for sure it has inspired them to do good for the rest of their lives – because using such talent can be very rewarding. They are worth your every applause!
