Amanda Carbajales is a 17-year old dancer and former contestant on Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition.
Amanda was enrolled in dance because her mother thought it was important to be involved in after school activities. Amanda's favorite style of dance to perform and watch is lyrical. If Amanda won the $100,000, then it would be put towards her dance training and college. If Amanda doesn't become a professional dancer, then she would like to teach dance.
On Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition
Amanda was in the final fourteen but landed in the bottom three in the Casting Special. Amanda moved on to the main competition and was complimented for her performance in week one. Amanda made it by week two and week three. Amanda won the group challenge against Zack and won a solo, which made her the best performance of the week. Amanda continued on and was placed in the hip-hop group in week five thanks to Hadley and Yvette, but she still continued on and out-danced Hadley in their duet, according to Robin, in week six. Amanda almost won the group challenge in week seven but lost to Madison. She was praised for her expression in their duet and moved on. Amanda was given a Latin solo that was right in her element. Then Amanda was set play a contortionist in week nine but failed to execute the facial expressions the judges wanted from Amanda for many weeks. Amanda was sent home but returned for the finale.
On Live to Dance
In 2011, Amanda was one of many dancers competing in the short lived competition show "Live to Dance." Amanda was in a duo called D'Angelo & Amanda with her partner D'Angelo. The pair were Latin ballroom dancers and made it on to the show. D'Angelo and Amanda eventually made it to the top three and were voted the winners, winning the title of 'Best Dance Act in America' and $500,000.
On America's Got Talent

In their audition, they revealed they had broken up four times. They made it past the audition and in to the Vegas round, and then made it past the Vegas round and on to the main competition. The duo made it all the way to Top Twelve but did not make it into the Top Six.
