Judge Cuts 2
July 21
(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.)

Last week, the judges began their cuts to see who would advance to Live Shows. Surviving: Piff the Magic Dragon, Chapkis Dance Family, Myq Kaplan, Freelusion Dance Company, 3 Shades of Blue, Silvia Silvia, and Samantha Johnson. Tonight, seven more acts will join them. This is Judge Cuts... Week 2!

And here to assist in the cuts, worldwide crooning sensation MICHAEL BUBLE! He is granted the power of the Golden Buzzer. If he likes an act too much to let them go, he'll fire them straight on to Live Shows. Because he can do that.

As a reminder, we will see 20 acts. Seven of them will advance.

And by the way, it's Mel B's birthday!

AIDEN SINCLAIR (Cheyenne, WY): if you remember, he translated a bid in prison into a magic act. His next card trick involves all of the judges remembering five different cards. He nails ALL FIVE. And the judges are immediately wowed.

JENNA RENAE (23; marketing specialist) sings us back in with "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You". It's not spectacular. But the judges really liked it.

SHIRLEY CLAIRE (San Antonio): last time, she wowed the crowd by... well, being her 87-year-old Hollywood showgirl self. She'll do it again with "The Best Is Yet to Come", a song that is near and dear to Michael's heart. Proving you're only as young as the man you feel.

DANIELLA MASS (orig. Colombia): she came here to live the American dream and to bring her mother here to share that with her. She'll try her hand at "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" in English and Spanish. She tells the story in both languages beautiful... and in a killer range.

IRA FENNELBLOOM (and his mother): Last time we met this puppet, he was singing an ode to Mel B. Now he's going to be backed up by his mother, Miriam. Together, they'll sing "Let's Get It On"... which goes as expected... for a puppet. In that it's very entertaining, but somewhat hard to believe. Mel B definitely wants to get it on with him. Which according to Ma means "let's go down the street and get ice cream."

Taking a break from the action... Howie pulls off a birthday prank for Mel B... a man in a cat tank top. In a cake.

BENJAMIN YONNATAN: He is certifiably blind, and he's lost more vision since last we saw him. He is down to 2 to 5 degrees of vision, but that doesn't stop him from dancing. So he'll just dance to "Tell Your Heart to Beat Again" by Danny Gokey (C-Note: hey, I remember him). Not as impressive as the first time we saw him, but impressive nonetheless. He is a master of transferring his weight.

Quick Hit time! Facinet Sylla (street dancer), Nastasya Generalova (rhythmic gymnast), and Wes Barker (escapist) all perform.

UZEYER NOVRUSOV (orig. Russia, circus performer): a juggler who was studying to be a chef. His whole life revolves around his twin daughters. Today, he'll be balancing on a ladder... 's handles. Howie likes him. Heidi says he's a feel-good act. Michael... gets on stage and does the act himself. Or at least gives it a good honest go with a smaller ladder. Howard buzzes him. Michael, not Uzeyer.

We're heading into the second half of the night (we know this because the judges' table is empty) with RYAN SHAW (39; NYC; singer), who was actually nominated for THREE Grammys, but never got close. He wants to relive that success he had a long time ago with "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt. He got in a table-saw accident, but it didn't affect what Michael calls "the strongest voice he's heard this competition."

THE CRAIGLEWIS BAND (Atlanta): two best friends... one group. Times have been rough, but they've weathered through it. Last time, they killed "It's a Man Man Man's World". Today, they'll try their hand at "I'm Goin' Down". It's reminiscent of K-Ci & JoJo, where one has the stronger voice that overpowers the act. But it's on tune, so let's see what the judges think at the end of the night. Michael doesn't want to push the button... because he's confident they're going to pull through. ... What the hell. GOLDEN BUZZER! THE CRAIGLEWIS BAND IS THROUGH TO LIVE SHOWS!

DR. DANGER'S ALL-STARS (daredevils): last time, they jumped a bus and lived to tell the tale. They're happy to be alive after that. Today, Mini Mike & Texas Trash are going to jump a motorcycle through a ring of fire, then ride through eight walls of fire. Which... underwhelms. And here come the buzzers. Until he actually drives through the walls of fire and spins out. He's okay, but I doubt he's going to convince Howie & Howard to give them another shot.

More dancing Quick Hits from Center Stage (Orem, UT) and DADitude.

DM NATION (orig. Quebec): they started their dance studio a little while ago. They're the only all-female dance crew in the competition. They're going to march to "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Lorde. They mix a few krumping moves in, and it just works. Michael thought it was "c'est magnifique!" Howie thought it was girl power. Mel B thought they danced hard.

THE CHIPPENDOUBLES (dancers): okay, color me corrected. We have women impersonators dancing... not well at all. Four Xes, that means "Thanks for playing, exit's that way."

CHRIS JONES (hypnotist): he's the one who hypnotized Howie to shake his hand. Second time lucky.... no.

SCOTT HEIERMAN (cross-dressing comic): he talks about being adopted at a family reunion and how it's like being the store-bought sheet cake at a table of homemade baked goods, and that's where he forgot the line.

Last act of the night...

SELECTED OF GOD (gospel choir): Larry and Teresa Callahan believe that they have the best choir in the land. They'll try to survive with "Survivor" by Destiny's Child. They've got the crowd whipped with their gospel-tinged take on the new classic.
