(C-Note: some of the acts that you are
about to read involve real danger in front of a live television audience. They were
designed, practiced, and supervised by professionals, taking the
contestants' safety into full account. They are extremely dangerous and
should NEVER be attempted anywhere, by anyone, at any time.)
The talent keeps coming as we continue our search for
this year's Million Dollar Act. Will we find it this
special week of extreme auditions? Welcome to America's
Got Talent Extreme!
We have a full two hours of extreme acts, so let's right
into it with The Squad (Los Angeles), an all-star team
of 11 former competitors brought together by a
choreographer for... presumably fun and profit. Their
act... a dance number to Jessie J's "Burning Up". It's
not as even as it could be, but the isos are on point.
If this were 11 dancers competing, they'd get through
easily. But it's a group. Howie thought it was
perfection... We beg to differ, but four yeses is a
Joining them are Marawa (hula hooping), a group that
blends guitars & fiddles, and Princess (dance duet).
Daniella Mass (22; Colombia; works in a furniture store)
has been in America for a year. She was born with a
pulmonary valve defect that was corrected, but she
couldn't do much physically. Except sing. So that's the
dream. She will perform "Con te Partiro" by Andrea
Bocelli. She has very impressive range, but she tends to
go a little flat when she's reaching in the upper
register. The judges are impressed with the performance
and that she's in an unfamiliar place. She gets a pass.
Time for a little magic with Aiden Sinclair (43;
Cheyenne, WY), who will perform a card trick that he
learned as a federal prisoner (five years in the hole,
by the way). He asks Howie to keep him honest and Howard
to make a call to his mother (and think of a playing
card - the 10 of Hearts). Aiden takes WAY TOO LONG to
get to the bloody point. That is the card that was
flipped over in the pack... WAS the 10 of hearts. The
judges want to see more, so on he goes.
Still waiting for the extreme, though.
Uzeyer Novrutzov (39; Las Vegas) says he does a little
bit of everything, but mostly, he's a big fan of Charlie
Chaplin. He'll be performing a mime goof on Charlie
Chaplin's free standing ladder. It's cheeky. It's fun.
Is it a million dollar act? No. Nice finish, though.
Howie calls him what we'd get when Chaplin and Mr. Bean
had a kid. They give him a pass.
Our next American dreamer is Hanako Matsuyama (59; IT
network engineer), who's been in the US for a couple of
years now. She says she can sing and dance ballet at the
same time. Difficult, yes. the number is "God Bless
America". And she sings... Not at all. That ... okay,
then we get the singing after a moment. Heidi gives her
the business, as does Mel B, and rightly so, because...
well, her dancing's better than her singing. Which isn't
saying much. Split panel, so it's a no-go.
And lest we forget... 'Murica.
Okay, we've suffered long enough, America. We're
bringing the entire show outside for the next hour to
welcome some of the most explosive acts we've ever seen.
We start with the dirtbike stunt group of Metal
Mulisha's Fitz Army (Los Angeles). They've ridden
freestyle motocross together anywhere and everywhere.
Their piece de resistance: the Kiss of Death. Needless
to say... do NOT try this at home. After a few Superman
maneuvers, we finally get to see the Kiss of Death. Mel
B thought it was brilliant. Howie votes yes straight
away. The rest of the panel follows suit.
After Nick gets his chance to demonstrate a faulty water
jetpack, Damone Rippy (16, Austin, TX) gets HIS chance
to demonstrate "flyboarding"... with said water jetpack.
Turns out that instead of a jetpack, he'll be using jet
shoes. For the first time in a while, it seems like
we're seeing something truly unique AND can work in
Vegas. The judges agree, so he's through. The 5th Judge
especially likes his six-pack.
Cliff Ryder (39; Malibu, CA) is a bass jumper who got
his start standing on a bike and jumping off of a
building in California. Today, he'll be jumping out of a
perfectly good helicopter from 3000 feet at a speed of
120 MPH... in 19 seconds. It's thrilling, to be sure,
but unless he keeps pushing that envelope, he doesn't
have a future in this. All of the judges thought it was
They give him a pass.
Meanwhile, we meet a jet-skier, someone who drives a
pickup side-saddle (with Nick riding shotgun), and
Lord's Gravity, an acro-dunk team.
Wally Glenn (Bay Area, CA) also goes by the the alter
ego... PYRO-BOY. As you can probably guess, his talent
involves fire. Namely, setting himself ablaze with
fireworks. And, really... how can you possibly top that.
Howie had to buzz him. Howard starts the vote by
saying... YES?! The ladies side with... Howard. WHY.
We're rounding out the show with Dr. Danger & the
Daredevil All-Stars (Austin, TX), who are going to drive
a school bus... into two other school buses. The good
doctor thought his career was over when he broke three
bones last year. BUT he's back on the bus. And equipped
with a cadre of fire fighters ready to suppress and
extract if something goes wrong. ... They're not needed.
He's okay. He's got FOUR yeses to end the show.
... and it's no longer a talent show. It's a freak show.
Hopefully we get back to what we're doing here next
