America's Got Talent: Season 6, Episode 9 :: New York Auditions Part 2

America’s Got Talent returns to the Big Apple to give New York another chance at stardom. Episode 9 aired on June 28, 2011.

Straight to Vegas

A lot of talent showed up for this week’s New York auditions. The first “yes” of the night went to the Smage Bros. Riding Shows - a motorcycle stunt duo with a dangerous act. After them, the judges seemed to be handing out tickets to Vegas left, right and center. We met the Sally Gould Dancers, a dance group made up of 11- to 13-year-old girls; Dylan Andre, a 19-year-old singer with a fantastic voice; and Shemika Charles, an 18-year-old limbo expert.

Third Time’s A Charge

Next, we met a returning contestant named Leonid the Magnificent. Leonid, a drag queen, was rejected by Piers and David Hasselhoff on season’s 1 and 2, and planned to give up show business forever. But after four years, he returned to the stage with a slightly different act - quick change. He and his assistants were a little clumsy, but his overall performance was extremely entertaining. And with Howie now sitting in David Hasselhoff’s chair, Leonid managed to secure two votes and a ticket to Vegas!

Inspired By Music

Rachel Zamstein, a 26-year-old singer, took the stage next. After battling with drugs and alcohol, Rachel turned to music as a way to find peace and inspiration. Accompanied by an electric guitar she sang her heart out, but Howie felt like she was holding back. Piers offered her the first yes, which Sharon reluctantly followed, earning her a golden ticket.

A Little Strange

The show wrapped up with two strange, yet entertaining performers. The first was Narcissister, who came onstage wearing masks on the front and back of her head. Then, when she did a hand stand, we discovered another head and mask between her legs. Yes, it was as creepy as it sounds. Lastly, 32-year-old Sam B performed an energetic dance. Sharon called him barking mad but she loved his act. Even though he wasn’t “talented” in the true sense of the word, he made the judges laugh and earned a ticket to Vegas.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
