It has also been announced that internationally renowned break-dancer and motivational speaker, Redo, will open the second semi-final with a performance. Redo was born with various malformations, including a shorter right arm which lacks an elbow joint, has only five fingers across two hands and is also missing his right hip, and is short on his right leg. Despite all this, he has not let this affect his life negatively.
At the age of 14, he noticed a group of people break dancing at his high school, and from there, he decided to take dance classes. Initially he found it difficult, but through determination he created a style of his own.
