It's a town known for its talent, but is
there any left? America's Got Talent rolls into Orlando tonight!
NEW YORK CITY
First up tonight is Jason "J-Sin" Pote, a
local lifeguard who's a freestyle dancer. He's only been at it for three
years. How will he go against the judges? Well... Lucky he's got that
the whole lifeguard thing to fall back on. Jonathan Timpanelli (eyebrow
dancer) joins him. Cosmo P from Outer Space (performance artists)...
gets beamed back to the shuttle. Solomon A (Singer)... gets split in
No one's made it to Las Vegas yet. Will
the Morphs (dancers) be the first? They look like nerdy Power Rangers.
The good news... no one will know who they are. The bad news: they can't
dance for science. Billy Bob Steinberg has an entertaining bicycle...
and an easy exit. The Hoola Monsters (hoop dancers)... aren't bringing
joy to this crowd. Stacy Weaver (singer)... carries on, wayward son.
Lonnie Lear used to be a cowboy. Now he
lives in the shadow of the great Kevin Skinner. Will he be as good (if
not better)? He sings "Today I Started Loving You Again" by Merle
Haggard. And Kevin Skinner, he ain't.
Nick Pike (Myrtle Beach by way of
England) has a unicycle and a juggling act... and apparently he knows
how to use it. And he drops one. That's an instant buzz from Piers. He
finishes with a whirlwind. And a chainsaw. And after what we've seen so
far, the crowd can't help but love him. So do the judges, and we have
our first "in" in Las Vegas. Joining him: Kruti Dance Academy (Indian
dancers), Lil Chris (singer/dancer), Jayna Lee (strongwoman), and Elaine
"Mama T" Terranova (singer/dancer).
Nathaniel Kenyon (Baxley, GA) loves to
sing and play the guitar, but can he hack it when it counts? He sings
"Come On Get Higher" by Matt Nathanson. Piers... not a fan, and
understandably so. He's flat tonally and pitchwise. Howie admits that
he's got something special and that he's a good looking kid albeit not
the best singer in the world. It's a 2-1 split... for Vegas.
Twisted Trystan & Krystan (sideshow
performers) are playing to pay for their wedding. Together, they'll be
performing an act that sent Trystan to the hospital for four days...
sword swallowing. He gets it right this time, and follows it up with
drill swallowing. First off... yeowza. Second off, the judges send him
to Vegas on the back of them being a couple.
It's almost time to wrap it up for
tonight. That leaves Wreckless (South Florida), a dance crew. They want
to put their heart on the stage, struggling to get here. And there's
nothing that they don't do on that stage for a ticket to Vegas. Luckily,
the panel are more than happy to oblige.
First day of Orlando was more miss than
hit. Perhaps the second day will be a little better.
