George Sampson has wowed the world with his gravity-defying dance moves. Simon Cowell has even called this 15-year-old the Rocky of dancing.

George started dancing when he was only 6 years old. When his single mother could no longer afford to pay for his dance classes, he took his break-dance moves to the streets to earn the tuition for his lessons. He worked on his craft nonstop, earning enough money to pay for classes and help support his mom and siblings. "If I didn't work hard, if I was lazy, if I only did an hour instead of three or four, you could tell because that money would just not even be half as much," he says. "That's when I realized the more effort I put into it, the more money I'd get."
