America's Got Talent

This is Kenichi Ebina's performance in America's Got Talent back last year.

Self-study activity:
It is a much more light-hearted activity today, where English almost plays a secondary role. Watch the video up to 00:40" and note down Heidi Klum's questions to Kenichi. Watch the same excerpt again and note down Kenichi's answers.

After the performance, write down the adjectives and remarks the panellists use to describe Kenichi's performance.

Hi there.
Look at you.
What’s your name?
My name is Kenichi Ebina.
What is your act?
Um, my act is a dance-ish performance.
Ish, yes.
Okay. How did you get into dance-ish kind of performing?
Um, I knew only the one step called the running man. Like... and when I did it, people got loud and I said, yeah and so I was like, oh, I feel good.
All right. Good luck. Have fun.
Thank you. Thank you.
Oh, my god!

Yeah, I’m good.
That was crazy! There you go! Wow!
It’s amazing!
Kenichi, that was pretty awesome.
Thank you.
I loved it. The stuff that you did, I haven’t seen anything like it before. You have a control over your body that is unbelievable.
Thank you, thank you.
Being the youngest judge on the panel, I can say, that was off the chain!
Thank you.
Honey, you’re no spring chicken. What are you talking about?
Oh, I am. I thought your head had come off your body. It was that convincing.
We see a lot of guys who come on stage who try to do what you do. They can’t do it. And you have a story to tell, you know you were doing the Matrix there. That was the whole movie, all in 90 seconds.
It was awesome.
It was magnificent. I could watch you all day.
Me too.
Thank you.
Yes, Howie?
I’m telling you that is the best dance we’ve seen in Chicago. It’s the best dance I’ve seen in a long time.
Thank you.
You told a great story.
Yeah, you were wonderful.
Thank you. Yes.
Let’s vote guys. I’m gonna start it off with a big yes!
Thank you!
I like what Heidi does with her eyes when she votes. It’s a yes.
Now, it’s a yes from me, you really would.
Thank you, thank you.
And my vote is yes-ish.
Thank you.
You’re going to Vegas!
Thank you!
