(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.)
The judges have gone from
the Atlantic to the Pacific, from Canada to Mexico, in
search of the million dollar act of 2014. Will they find
it on this special Sunday edition of America's Got
First up, Sekhmet Siabata & Pauline
Violette, known collectively as The Psychic Divas of New York. They
claim to know your secret. They have never given a prediction that has
not come true. They think they're going through.... Howard needs to
interrupt the act... to buzz them. And the rest of the panel joins suit.
Bet they never saw THAT coming.
Mike Super (Pittsburgh) is a stay-at-home
dad who is a "mystifier" by night. He likes to get into people's mind
and freak people out with his access to the spirit world. Let's see how
he and "Desmond", his spirit, get on tonight. He gets Heidi to hold a
pitcher... and Desmond... breaks the pitcher. It was weird in a good
way, and very different. The judges give him a pass.
Next up, Valo & Bobby, a pair of
aerialists. Valo is a power lifter. Bobby is an acrobat. They're
originally form Romania, and yes, they're married with a child.
Hopefully the child will still have parents after this. Valo is going to
lift this wife... on a support beam attached to a whirligig... on his
forehead. The fifth judge wants them to go through. The judges comply.
Joining them in the next round... Mothmen
(dancers), Robert Channing (speed painter), Jonatan Riquelme (rolla-bolla
balancer), and an as-of-yet-unnamed group of ghost dancers.
Will Mara Justine (11-year-old from
Galloway, NJ) join them? She's one of five kids, and she loves to sing.
She thinks it's going to be a little weird, but is it weird enough for a
million bucks? Let's see her sing "And I Am Telling You" from "Dreamgirls".
Wow. She's got a very mature voice for her age. And the judges agree,
saying that she's a good old-fashioned belter. They give her a
resounding yes. They may have discovered the winner tonight.
On the other side of the break, we have
Juan Carlos (49 from Colombia) who's a roller dancer. He dances to
"These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" by Nancy Sinatra. Howard...
nonplussed. I'd be too. I'm bored. Howard likes him as a person, but he
was bored. Howie says that he'll win the hearts of America. Howard still
says no. The others say yes.
Meanwhile, Howie's wearing jeggings.
Back into the talent with Nina Burri, a
36-year-old contortionist originally from Switzerland who busts out some
crazy moves that are as mind-bending as they are body-bending. Four
yeses. More bendy stuff from a group of girls and The Contortion
Back to hour 2 as we return to Radio City
with Emil & Dariel, cellist brothers. They love to explore everything
that the cello can actually do. Today, they're doing "Purple Haze" by
Jimi Hendrix. Emil's breaking his bow, he's so fierce. It's something
that the judges weren't expecting or haven't heard before. They've got
Next up, the One Voice Children's Choir
from Utah. They have been singing since 2002. And they look to number in
the hundreds. Actually, JUST 100. They perform "Burn" by Ellie Goulding.
They're not the best choir the show's ever heard, but who can say no to
a kid, let alone 100? Apparently the Briton and the Canadian. Mel B and
Howie say that they weren't as good as Heidi and Howard made them out to
be. It's a 2-1 yes split to Mel B. .... who gives them another chance.
Arlo Pelegrin is an entomologist who will
put five spiders on his face. He breaks the world record at 3. But why
stop here! Here's the walk... It's 3-1... no. Other animal act
rejects: Jungle John and his hissing cockroach... and a lady who
performs music with plants... and Junior Haha, who eats cacti.
Grennan James the Green Monster (8 years
old) is going to throw knives at his dad. He is a born sideshow
performer. He's a very accurate knife thrower. The judges give the green
monster the green light.
Rock Hard Revue is next. They are a male
revue show... you know what's coming out of Heidi and Mel B now. But
it's not just taking shirts off. It's also dancing and flipping. Then
Howie takes his shirt off. Where.... do we go from this? It's up to
Howie here... and it's a no. It's a 2-2 split, so no go for Rock Hard
We're wrapping the night with Frank
Dimitri, a 74-year-old singer. He tends to stutter, so he doesn't have
the confidence he used to. He worked his life as a bartender. Hopefully
his dream comes true today with "I've Got the World on a String". He's a
very old soul and he's got old-soul swagger. The judges LOVE him, and
they put him through.
And that's all the show-stopping we have
on this show-stopper Sunday. We'll be back NEXT Tuesday to wrap the
