NYC Auditions

Last week, Howie Mandel was formally installed into the hardest room in America, as the search for Million Dollar talent began. Now the search continues in my home away from home (and Gordon's home.... ), New York City!


First up, a group that is preparing an act that's NEVER been seen before on America's Got Talent. Every light in this building is about to go out for Fighting Gravity (college students/frat brothers), a surreal day-glo dance act. The secret... black jumpers on a black backdrop. None of them have any dance experience, which makes it even more interesting. Howie compares it to watching Blue Man Group. Sharon says that their timing is on point. Needless to say, it's a sweep!

Next up, 72-year-old Gino Antanies and his son Tone, a couple of Jersey guys. They're singing "All By Myself". And after that, they will be all by themselves. Well, to me. It split the NYC crowd - and the judges - down the middle. Piers says no, obviously. Sharon says yes, obviously. Howie... says no.

Gentleman Joe Menchetti will eat for your entertainment... Good for him, bad for this show. RC Storm will play an oversized Flying V... And he'll fly right on outta here. Lisa Falzani from Jersey thinks she's Barbra Streisand... and we have a situation here...

Next up, John Quale from Virginia, a clerk who sings. He's not from a musical family, and his parents didn't know what to do with him. And we should add that he goes by the stage name of... Prince Poppycock. He'll sing "Largo al factorum" from "The Barber of Seville." He looks rather atrocious, but he has the tone down. Sharon calls him "magnificent". Piers thinks it's different. All three give him the go-ahead.

The Peek-a-Boo Revue (vaudeville burlesque), Jia-Yi He (multi-harmonica player), and The Danger Committee (jugglers/entertainers) get greenlights. How about On Repeat (Mike B & Bobby Dio), a musical duo of singing & rapping? They sing "You Get What You Give" by the New Radicals. They give us crap. We give them Xs. At least he knows who he is... white and rapping.

Antonio Restivo has a dream about going to Vegas... with FIRE. It looks like something out of Clash of the Titans, but it's different. he ends with a magic trick, turning a skeleton on fire into a lady. We love it. He's going to Vegas... with FIRE!

Auditions are winding down, as we go into comics Raymond the Amish Comic, Karen Morgan, and Darren Finizio, all of which... suck. Doogie Horner (graphic designer) hopes to not suck. His bit includes pregnant people... sex with eagles... and basically lambasting the audience who are lambasting them back. I don't know where the jokes begin or end, but there you are. Howie thought he was funny. Piers didn't think so. It's a 2-1 split... for VEGAS!

That's all that New York has to offer, but we'll be back in a future episode. Meanwhile, we're going to take a break for six days.
