Srour...moving on to the second round in "America's Got Talent."

Jonathon Srour is going to Las Vegas.

The York County native who now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., is part of the seven-member Hammerstep dance group competing on NBC's "America's Got Talent," where performers compete for a $1 million prize.

Hammerstep's pre-taped audition was shown during the show's 9 p.m. airing Tuesday, when all four superstar judges voted to send the group to Vegas for round two of the competition.

"It was a great feeling, pretty cool," Srour, 25, said about the audition experience.

Hammerstep does a mixture of Irish, hip-hop and tap dances and African body percussion, he said.

"I'm very proud of how far we've come and the fact that we have, hopefully, successfully fused several different art forms that creates ground-breaking choreography," he said.

Before voting, the show's judges gave their feedback on the group's audition.

Melanie Brown, known as Scary Spice of the singing group Spice Girls, called Hammerstep's dance "weird, dark, intense and mysterious," while model and TV host Heidi Klum said she liked the unique performance.

Comedian/actor Howie Mandel said that while he does not like traditional Irish dancing, he found Hammerstep's dance to be "new, surprising and exciting."

Radio personality Howard Stern called the group's presentation "impossible to ignore."

Srour said this was his first time participating in a television competition show.

However, he has performed and competed in competitions around the world as a member of Irish Blessing, a family dance and music quartet, based in York.

Srour said he still performs with the quartet which includes his brother, Joshua Srour, and their parents, Cushla and Jim Srour.
