(C-Note: some of the acts that you are about to read involve real danger in front of a live 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.)

(C-Note, additional: due to severe weather coverage on the NBC station in the Raleigh-Durham market, we join "America's Got Talent" approximately 15 minutes in)

Chicago... It's my kind of town. But is it the judges'?

Rosemont Theatre

... and we cut into the middle of a pop'n'lock act who got the golden ticket to Vegas. As soon as we have a name, we'll publish it...

... Oh, Kenichi. Thanks, Heidi. You're a good one.

Deanna DellaCioppa (39, Winchester, MA) is a dog rescuer, saving animals from being euthanized. She's singing tonight, but not before breaking free of some unwanted mental baggage (namely, getting over her weight). She thinks that this is her last chance, so she's going to make the most of it with "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going Anywhere" from "Dreamgirls".  Girl's got pipes on her. Howard was looking for emotion. He found it. Heidi thought it was powerful. Mel thought she was going to "snap" her voice. Let's see what she does next. Howie says she's got a great voice but an even greater heart. They say... YES!

Next up, the Syfy Channel invades... In the midst of that, we have Steve Price aka Sprice (19; Canton, MI). His talent... Rube Goldberg machines. You know the rule. If it doesn't work... You get the Chico Buzz. His act is... in the lobby, and has been for the last three days. Let's take a look... a little AGT logo drop... until... SCORE! Back to the stage where we get a verdict. Howard thinks his mind is "something else". Heidi says it's simple. Mel says unique and creative. Howie LOVED it. It's a yes all around.

America is the land of dreams. Rong Niu (43, San Francisco by way of China), who knows this better than most, will try and tap into that with a Chinese acrobat act involving plates and bowls and other things. It's a unicycle bowl juggling act. No, Mel, not balls, BOWLS. Nick starts her out with two... and then gets another three... And another four... And she sticks ALL NINE.. ON HER HEAD! The Fifth Judge (TM) wants Vegas. I think we need more danger. Let's go to the judges... Howie says she's beautiful and talented. Heidi was sweating while watching. Howard calls her fearless. Another sweep.

Next up, The American Military Spouses Choir (20-56), who support the troops and their husbands through music therapy to treat PTSD and traumatic brain injuries. Each one has an amazing story to tell, mainly of the "will-I-see-my-husband-again" variety. They sing, quite a propos... "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", the Diana Ross version. Never mind the back story. These ladies could... and it's the first time I'll say it this season... GO ALL THE WAY. The judges agree, and they're going to VEGAS! What a way to end the night.

We'll have more from Chicago in the weeks to come. But for now... stay tuned for the season finale of "The Voice" coming up over most of these NBC stations.
