Meet Sam West and Autumn Jones, one of the seven dancing couples in the 2017 Grand Nationals Carolina Classic dance competition that was held a couple of months ago. Sam and Autumn were the very first contestants asked to show their dancing talent – and that’s exactly what they did.
At a first glance, the audience does seem a bit confused when these two start walking onto the dance floor. Sam is a middle-aged man and people often think that he doesn’t have a lot of great dance moves in him, but he definitely wanted to prove them wrong. Even though he’s a little bit older than his dance partner Autumn, the chemistry these two have is absolutely undeniable.
Not knowing what to expect, the audience was eagerly awaiting their performance.
The first notes of the classic hit song “Pink Cadillac” by Jerry Lee Lewis started to hit and that’s the exact moment when Sam and Autumn won the hearts of the audience and the judges alike.
Their dance moves are definitely unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, and it’s their footwork in particular that manages to leave a lasting impression. The two are incredibly synchronized in their routine and they showed off some moves naturally as if their lives depended on it. We can only begin to imagine how long Sam and Autumn must’ve practiced to get it all right, but the end result is certainly impressive.
When Sam starts spinning around on one leg, this dancing duo is met with loud cheers and applause.
Autumn gracefully follows Sam’s lead and complements her dance partner perfectly.
Sam and Autumn were definitely determined to win the Carolina Classic dance competition, and even though the six other competing couples were most certainly great as well, it’s this fantastic duo that was awarded the grand prize.
The footage of their Pink Cadillac dance routine was shared on the internet and quickly went viral. Their YouTube video has been seen almost a million times!
“This couple has legs like rubber bands and it looks like the way they move their feet could be wax on the floor so smooth and amazing couple,” viewer Annie Williams commented.
“How does one remember those moves? And sooooo synchronized wow,” another person said.
These two perfectly embody what great dancing is all about!
Sam and Autumn definitely deserved to take the number one place in the competition. You can check out their incredible dance routine below.
