Los Angeles Auditions
AGT kicks off its 7th season in Los Angeles, where a particularly vocal Howard Stern learns the ropes. After a series of humorous acts that can hardly be called talent, the judges met 42-year-old William Close, who Stern accused of being a hippie. However, William proved him wrong when he displayed his unique talent with his Earth Harp. He used wires that stretched from the stage to the first floor balcony, essentially making the theatre into the instrument. His song, accompanied by a drummer, was beautiful. How will he top himself?
Next they met Elements Dance Crew, who were crisp and precise in their clogging dance steps, along with father and daughter Jorge and Alexa who sang together.
St. Louis Auditions
In St. Louis, Ben Blaque risked his assistant’s life to show his crossbow skills. Then Light Wire Theatre built upon what dance groups from previous seasons (Fighting Gravity and Team iLuminate) brought to the stage. The show ended with another father-daughter duo who impressed the judges so much, they picked the 18-year-old daughter out as a potential star.
San Francisco Auditions
On May 15, 2012, the judges held their first ever auditions in San Francisco. There we met some more outrageous talent including 21-year-old street performer Turf, whose extreme contortionist moves added something extra special to his audition. The judges also met 54-year-old Brazil-native Luiz Meneghin, who converted Howard Stern into an opera lover.
