Hanna’s passion for dancing comes from his grandma, who still takes 4 dance classes a week despite being over 80 years old.

The 12-year-old talent has watched America's Got Talent for quite some time before building enough courage to become the show’s contestant. Merrick auditioned for America's Got Talents 10 and 11 seasons but didn’t get very far.

Merrick is very young to have any firm plans about his future but he considers a very unexpected career. The youngster is thinking about working in engineering.

Whether or not he will become an engineer in the future, we are certain that he will continue to dance and inspire others with his outstanding talent.
