We've had some amazing singers, dancers,
magicians, and... well, whatevers... to take the stage. But now the
auditions are about to go to levels not seen this year as we continue
the search for the million dollar act in...
Five... four... three... two... one...
For the first time ever, America's Got
Talent is in H-Town, and the biggest crowd in AGT history is hoping to
get the callback to Vegas.
First up is Devani, a 29-year-old singer
originally from Russia, now living in New York. She immerses herself in
emotions and feelings. She says that she'll give 110%. She'll try out
"Queen of the Night" from the Bodyguard... and right now, her voice
needs a bodyguard, because I want to beat it senseless. Interestingly
enough, she survived the full-ride with only Piers' X. So much for her.
Then comes Vila, a guitar-and-washboard
act with a lawn mower. And then it gets weird. Nick is brought out to
toss vegetables into the lawn-mower, and it looks like a Double Dare
physical challenge gone horribly wrong. Next up is Rusty Reese, who
sings "If I Were A Rich Man". Can we throw this Fiddler back on the
roof? Next is Stone White, who sings "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)"... a
So thousands of people lining up... with
no talent amongst them. Suffice it to say.... "Houston, we have a
Next is a group of girls who think that
they're shining lone stars. They are the Lake Houston Performing Arts
Center, about 20 Carrot Top clones who like to dance. Surely they
can't be any worse than what we've seen so far... And thank goodness,
they aren't. Lots of coordination. Piers says that wigs worked to bring
out the dance. Sharon wants to meet the choreographer to tell her what a
good job she's done. David says they're the best act they've seen.
So far, we've seen the good, the bad, and
the ugly. Will we see a winner, though? Maybe in Pam Martin and her Jack
Russell terrier Viva. They both have been dancing since Pam's husband
passed away. She wants America to embrace Viva as she has. They'll dance
to "Funky Shoes". And it would appear that Viva's a spunky one. She
calls it "Canine Freestyle". Piers calls it entertaining. David calls it
adorable. They're in. Viva... Las Vegas.
Beautiful people, beautiful beaches,
beautiful weather... beautiful talent?
First up is Marti Brill, a Miami magician
who is confident that he's going to take down the competition. He's
practiced every single day. He doesn't think he's going to screw up on
Got Talent. We'll see. David... isn't hopeful. And it gets boring early.
After a while of supporting him, the "fourth judge" turns on him
quickly. So do Piers and Sharon. David allows him to continue unabated.
And he probably should've razzed him. Piers sums everyone's opinion,
including mine... "You're the most annoying man in Miami."
It doesn't get any easier for poet
Brandon Paxton... or singer Diego Baner... or wrestlers Midwest
Entertainers... Piers: "You may have the guns, but we have the Cannon."
No sunshine in the Sunshine State, but
what about Joseph Constantine & KC, illusionists from Orlando. They've
put everything on the line for this one big break. It's tough for all of
us, but especially for him. But they don't think that it's the end. They
start with the old "cutting your wife in thirds" routine. David thinks
that it's a nice presentation, but we've already seen it before. Same
with Sharon, though she's never seen HIM do that trick. Piers thinks
that it was the best example of the trick we've seen before. The Fourth
Judge wants them to move on. David says no. Piers... says yes. It's up
to Sharon. She appreciates the effort. She knows how important this
is... Sharon... says yes! They're in, 2-1.
The day continues... and the talent is on
a run with belly dancer Fuchsia FoXXX working it... contortionists/hoopists
Circus R Us working it... and the Hurricane Tricksterz kicking ass...
The day ends with a breakdancer hoping to
quit his day job and move into the limelight. Here comes Hairo Torres
twisting and turning and contorting and frankly, making everyone dizzy.
Sharon thinks that he's unique. Piers wants to see more of him. He's in.
The journey continues for him and all of
today's winners. Next week, though, we may have the man to beat them
all. Be there to share in the magic.
