Key moments from tonight include:
Adorable 12-year-old Aussie singer, Annie Jones kicks-off the show with a totally commanding recital of Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey.”
Ty Barnett, father, pharmacist and comedian, delivers a stand-up routine that is relished by all – arguably the perfect mix of humor and relatability.
Georgia native, Shaquira McGrath is accustomed to singing in the shower, but surprises herself and the AGT audience with a stand-out performance of “Redneck Woman” that gets the whole room in the mood for all things Country!
Extreme Dance Force (14 to 19 year-old Hip Hop-ing male group) receives mixed reviews from Howie vs. Simon, but ultimately earns a much needed third YES from guest judge Eric Stonestreet and a second chance to reinvent their routine.
Veteran Rap Battler, Chef Boy Bones will make his eyes pop out of his head, quite literally (while rapping some very original verses…)
21-year old magician Winston from Venezuela admits he is shy, but his harmonious performance of slight-of-hand magic truly brings him out of his shell and leads Simon to say his showmanship is “off the charts.”
Solo dancer Lewis Shivlock has made a lot of sacrifices in his life leading up to AGT and now leaves it all on the stage with a seamless routine of tricks, splits and solid gold pants.
Bone Breakers, originally hailing from West Africa, take synchronized “bone breaking” to a level that is so shocking, it may have you averting your eyes…as heads spin nearly 360 degrees.
Nashville native Jesse Kramer brings a unique rock-and-roll gravel tone to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” that earns him the chance to advance to the next round for another rockin’ showcase.
Singer Serban Cioca says that if he wins AGT, he will personally take Simon Cowell to Goodwill to purchase some colorful t-shirts and brighten things up – sadly his original song just doesn’t cut it.
Bodybuilder, Josefina is 73 years young with one of the fittest physiques to ever grace the big stage and though she doesn’t advance, she DOES inspires Terry Crews to flex alongside her.
Alan Silva, sibling to Alfredo from former AGT act Deadly Games, says his brother inspired him to follow his dreams. Alan executes a moving acrobatic aerial act that might just be the very best surprise of the entire night!
