They're quickly becoming known as the guys who dance in high heels. 

And that's both a good and a bad thing, explained "America's Got Talent" judge Howie Mandel, who said that the parts of their choreography when they were not wearing stilettos felt a bit lacking. 

For the other three beside him, however, it's definitely a good thing. 

Junior New System, an all-male dance group from the Philippines, once again wowed the popular talent contest as they mixed heels with gymnastics for their quarterfinal performance. 

"Oh my God. Wow! Everything about you guys -- where you come from, where you are now, you do your own choreography, you are united and together and you sure move," Mel B of the Spice Girls gushed about them. 

Heidi Klum gave them a "heel yes," while Simon Cowell said: "It is not just the heels, it is the passion and personality that makes it so exciting. I think this is going to be the most talked about act and for all the right reasons."
