Julianne Hough gives interpretive dancer lessons backstage after she cheekily gives Simon Cowell her hotel room details on America’s Got Talent.
Yuriyan Retriever left the judges – Hough, Cowell, Gabrielle Union, Howie Mandel – and the crowd stunned as she walked out on stage – and then stripped out of her bulky hoodie and revealed her very skimpy American flag one-piece swimsuit.
“I only respect three people in the world: My mom, and my dad. And Julianne,” she said before launching into a confounding interpretive dance to Final Countdown that Simon and Julianne buzzed. Strangely, the audience absolutely loved the performance. Howie gave her a resounding yes vote, but it’s the only one. Gabrielle, Julianne and Simon all vote no. After the act, Simon says he’d like to be friends with her, even if he’s not going to vote for her and she responded by giving Simon the details of her hotel room where she’s staying in LA much to his embarrassment. But he does offer to pay for dancing lessons for her and Hough says she will teach her.
Yuriyan is then seen backstage with Hough learning some new moves as Howie and Gabrielle watch, before Cowell then appears and gives her a big hug.
