The Fab Five was a clogging group from Season 4 of America's Got Talent. It finished in the Bottom 5 of the Top 10.

Background

From a dairy farm in rural Utah, where life consisted of raising wheat, cows, and one’s family, came five sisters who could accomplish dairy chores in the morning and dance like wildfire at dusk. The “Whitear” girls are now known as dancers extraordinaire with “Fab5” fame. Hard work, team spirit, and a love for life began on the farm and now continues on the stage. Nearly three decades of dancing has brought tours, trophies, husbands, and kids. Ultimately, Whitear life has been filled with both smiles and tears. With the challenges of a father who lost his farm to economic hardships, a child with severe Cerebral Palsy, and another child with Kidney Disease, one might think that these women have watched their families confront some of life’s most difficult tests. Nevertheless, the constant within this group has always been family and dance.

When their father requested that his girls be up on stage together for his birthday, as a gift, the five sisters, who had never previously danced together, combined their collective “power tap” talent and launched a new group called the “Fab Five.” This gift eventually brought them to “America’s Got Talent.” and subsequent performances.
