(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 most extreme acts took to the stage last week, and
the judges & the audience were left speechless. Now it's
back to the low-key stuff... or is it?
To remind you, Heidi is the only judge who has not hit
the Golden Buzzer yet.
First is Zach & Cameron, known as "The Gentlemen" (12,
9; Fairfield, CA), brothers who practice in their
garage. They're going to dance for a spot in the
Callbacks, but do they have the smooth moves to work it
to "Caught Up"? They're a lot cleaner than many of the
dance acts twice their size/age this season. Mel B finds
it hard to believe that they can move like that. Believe
it, hot rod. Howard says that they could be real
contenders. They're through EASY.
In the course of the next couple of hours, Heidi is
going to hit her Golden Buzzer. But will it be for Oz
Pearlman (32; New York City), a mentalist & mind reader?
He used to work on Wall Street, but the stage was too
big of a call, and hopefully he can take his act to
Radio City. He's planning on getting inside the judges'
mind. His prediction for a person traveling with Mel
B... in 1998... in Fiji... with someone named Geri. I'm
assuming her last name is Halliwell, but that's neither
here nor there. Heidi wants more. Howie wants more. Mel
B wants her life back. He is IN.
Brittney Allen (24; Smiths Station, AL) is a singer
who's a bundle of nerves right now. She always looked up
to her father, but performances were limited to her
bedroom. She has a really bad case of stage fright. Her
fiancee is an infantryman in the Marines, and he's very
supportive, so she's got a big backing in her
performance of "Wherever You Will Go". She has a trip,
but she's encouraged to start up. Relax, breathe, you're
doing fine. She's singing from a deep place, and she
doesn't need to be scared, because she's got a great
instrument on her. Howie tells her, plainly, "Never give
up." Howard says that she's a nice person, but her piano
playing is not strong enough. It's a split panel, but
Howard is the only one dissenting. Brittney moves on,
Einstein the Talking Parrot, Rascal the Doggy Stripper
(buzzed out), and Herbie the Dog kick off our requisite
animal act portion of the show, with the spotlight on
Birdie Sue (57; pool cleaner from Port Charlotte, FL), a
bird whistle. She did bird whistles on a cruise ship
last year. This year... she's whistles to "Don't Worry,
Be Happy". With a little dance. It's... .goofy. It's a
goofy act. The kind of act this show was built for.
She's sweet, but it's not for AGT, says Heidi. She gets
three noes, and that's one more than she needed to go.
Out of the break, we have Corey's
balloon-making-out-of-his-nose skills. They get three
yeses. How is anyone's guess. Let's move right along
with Semeneya Yanyere Caleno. I had to pause the phone
to get all that. They're a Latin dance studio out of San
Antonio, and they're going to perform fusion salsa
dancing... involving lifts. Good thing Len Goodman ain't
here. They have two couples going on, and they're
completely on point with a few dangerous, dare I say
forbidden moves. Turns out to be too dangerous as one of
the male leads hurts his right knee and the judges are
begging them to stop the act. They do, and the medic
suggests a trip to the ER. The judges invite the
remaining dancers to audition tomorrow OR if they want
to wait for Luis to come back and come back next year.
They decide that Alex & Melissa are to do a duo... RIGHT
NOW. Can they salvage this act? THEY CAN! AND THEY'RE
Joining them: Evoke Tap Movement (tapdancing troupe),
Animation Crew (poppers), and Metalachi (metal mariachi
Day 2 begins with a lot of kids leaving it on the stage.
Arielle Baril (11; Drexel Hill, PA) loves to sing. Her
big brother Joshua would sing all over the house, and
she got hers off of him. Her biggest fan, her mom. She
goes in with "O Mio Babbino Caro". And yes, we checked,
THAT IS HER VOICE. She's got the talent of someone TWICE
her age, maybe three times. The ending is a little flat,
but she's got a lot of strength for a little lady.
Everyone can't believe she has such a mature voice at
11. Heidi loves her so much... "that I'm sending you to
Radio. City. Music. HALL!" GOLDEN BUZZER FOR ARIELLE
Next up, some amazing elders, like Crazy George, who
claims to have invented the Wave. Not good enough for
this work. Okay, how about the Lakettes (Lake City, CO)?
The Power-Lifting Granny? That wasn't a powerlift. That
was a deadlift. World of difference. Shel Higgens, aka
The Grandpa Show (48; former real estate agent) had a
midlife crisis and developed his act... a stunt show. He
left real estate for this, ladies and gentlemen. He's
performing an act involving a chainsaw and the walking
on his hands thereupon. Among other things. Blindfolded.
He gets two yeses from the guys... Heidi's the breaker
Oleksiy Mogylnyy (34; carpenter originally from Ukraine)
is a dancer with a very unique partner... a mannequin
with no head. The dress on it is the wife's wedding
dress. So we know he's at least normal in THAT respect.
In that he's married with a family. They're watching
from home, as he makes nice with his dummy... with no
shirt on... to "Take My Breath Away". If you get away
from the sheer goofiness of this act, Oleksiy is very
nimble and strong. It's a good acrobatics act. IF you
can look past the fact that he's on stage with a dummy.
He's through. And so is his ...lady friend.
Next up is Alex Boye (44, Salt Lake City), who's been
singing pop music with an African twist for 25 years
now. He's originally from London. He's gotten to put his
music online, but he's ready to give it to the world.
His audition is "Shake It Off". Yep. Taylor Swift. He's
having the time of his life on that stage. It's not the
best singing act of the year, but best use of the keytar.
Everyone is having a good time on stage... and everyone
puts him through.
We're winding down with Syum & Daniel, Vegas taxi
drivers who juggle... and that's the extent of things
that they have in common. Together, they're the Juggling
Taxi (52, 27; Las Vegas). Separately... they suck.
Together... they're not even on the map. Everyone but
Mel B hails a different cab. She was busy rocking out to
the song... Now Syum is not a bad juggler... but the
package deal needs to be returned.
Play'em out, Keytar Cat. Final auditions NEXT TIME!
