Ballerina born without arms inspires at AGT All Stars

An 18-year-old ballet dancer who was born without arms touched the netizens’ hearts after performing for the America’s Got Talent All Stars audience.

Vitoria Bueno, who hails from Brazil, was named Das Supertalent Season 15 runner up in 2021. She said she has always been fond of watching Got Talent videos so she tried to join the show and did not expect to receive the Golden Buzzer.

“At the Finals, I finished in second place. The show changed my life a lot. I was able to believe more in my potential,” she narrated.

While she was very nervous to perform at the All-Stars show, she said she is happy to be given the opportunity to showcase her talent once again.

Prior to her performance, Vitoria shared that she started dancing when she was young. “I was born with a genetic defect so for me, it was super normal to do things with my feet. I eat with my feet, I brush my teeth, I fix my hair. I live with my disability,” she said.

“I discovered dancing when I was young. It was a new exciting thing to do with my feet. This gave my mother the impulse to take me to dance classes.”

One netizen said she was left in awe by Vitoria’s elegance and gracefulness, pointing out that ballet is hard enough with two arms. “She has to be incredibly strong! Arms are used so much for balance so the rest of her body is compensating. Absolutely beautiful and so graceful!” another said.

“I cried tears of joy from the start up to the last performance. Amazing talent, inspiring and you’re perfect for me, I like your smile, and you’re so beautiful just like an angel. God bless you always, keep safe and good luck,” another said.

Meanwhile, Vitoria hopes to serve as an inspiration to others to keep on working towards their dreams.

“I am here to prove that everyone can strive for their dreams, and do what we like to do,” she said.
