INTERCOM BUZZES Hello, Greatest Dancer studio.
Hello, I’m Shyla, and I’m here for my audition. Sure.
Come straight through. Hello. Hello. How are you? Good. Shyla. How old are you, Shyla?
I’m seven. Lovely. Do you want to take a seat? Yeah. There we go. Feel OK? Yeah. Good. I’ve been practising in my bedroom, I’ve been stretching everywhere. I feel really excited about it. Are you ready? Yeah. My mummy and daddy
are coming with me and I’d love to make them
really, really, really proud. # I’ve been dreaming ’bout us… # Is this the biggest audition
of your life, Shyla? Yeah. I actually haven’t had
an audition before. This is your first-ever audition?
Yeah. Wow. Aww. In a minute, you’re going to go
through to the next bit. Mummy and Daddy are going in
to watch. OK. OK? # ..I’ve got time, I’ve got love # Got confidence, rise above… # Straight into splits. Crazy. When did you learn
to do the splits? Um…when I was four. My name’s Eliot. I’m Shyla’s dad
and I’m her biggest fan. Aw! Shyla started to dance when she was
three years old. She likes modern, tap, ballet. Shyla has been just as supportive
to me as I have been to her. Last year, I went to hospital and they diagnosed me with
a condition called keratoconus. I can only really see blurs
and shapes and colours. In the future, if my vision
deteriorates any further, I might not be able to see
Shyla dance. On the days where I’m feeling down, I see Shyla practising her dances. She lifts me up and that just
gives me the joy to live life. She inspires me.
I hope she inspires you. Shyla, it’s time for your audition. Do your best today. OK. I’m not going to prejudge. Cute. And go by merit. Yeah. Well… Lights down. Quiet, please. She looks so little
in that big room. Hmm. Aw, look,
she’s just decided what side to go. Aw, bless her. MUSIC: Big Noise From Winnetka
by Bob Haggart # This is the story of
a young girl… # Well, give it some. Whoo! # ..Who was the hippest
chick in town # They call her Big Noise
from Winnetka # Miss Birdie’s sure to get around # Big Noise flew in from Winnetka # Stole each fella’s heart and then # Big Noise flew right
back out again # Stop! Look! Listen!
Here comes the Big Noise # Stop! Look! Listen! # Here comes # Stop! Look! Listen! # Here comes… # Oh, this is great! Look at her go! # ..I am the one they call
the Big Noise # I’m looking fine and feeling sharp # I just flew in from Winnetka
Don’t you know? # I’m gonna blow this joint apart # I got my high heels
I don’t need no wheels # My footwork is an art # You know the joint is jumping # My heart is pumping
and this is just the start # I’ll be a big noise
in your heart… # CHEERING AND APPLAUSE She’s amazing. There’s nothing shy about Shyla,
is there? No. How was that for you, darling? It’s just really cool. Aw! You are a little superstar. You’re absolutely fantastic.
You’ve got everything. The moves, the facial expressions,
the performance – good job. It was such a pleasure to watch you. I couldn’t stop looking at your
face. You were so expressive. And you can just tell, your parents
are so proud of you. Great job. Do you know what?
You are just a little pocket rocket. You are so explosive, and you didn’t just give us
everything once. You did a kick and then
you did it twice. You did two splits. I was like, “Yes, more!”
You are a superstar. I absolutely adored that. ALESHA: Give it up for Shyla! # Ain’t no mountain high enough # Ain’t no valley low enough… # Very nice to meet you. There’s Mummy and Daddy. # ..To keep me from getting
to you, babe… # I’m looking at the mirror and seeing
if all the dancing is right and then it just opened
and all the people were there. I was like,
“What’s this? What’s this?” SHYLA GIGGLES That was really good. Well done, you. You smashed it.
