This week kicked off with David “The Bullet” Smith, who launched himself from a cannon and scored a 40-yard field goal. The judges were amazed by how dangerous his stunt was, but Sharon suggested that next time he fly over a bed of alligators or something.
Next, All That danced their way into Sharon’s naughty fantasies. They may not have stood out from some of the other acts, but Sharon would certainly like to see them come back wearing leather pants, no shirts and covered in oil. Keep it PG, Sharon!
Ulysses received some harsh feedback from the judges. He tried to improve his performance by Hollywoodizing his usual “theme song request” type act. But that earned him 3 X’s from the judges.
Joe Castillo impressed the judges with his sand art. Howie loved how he told a story with his art by displaying different wildlife images. Now if he’d just get rid of his “stupid beret,” Howard would be happy.
Sebastien “El Charro De Oro” impressed the judges with his mariachi song. They loved his passion and emotion, and failed to mention how many times he went off key during the number.
Eric Dittelman completely stunned everyone when he replicated Deal or No Deal and predicted which case Howie would choose well before the night began. This, ladies and gentlemen, is real magic!
William Close impressed the judges so much with his earth harp that Howie stated “I think you won this whole contest.” After a long stream of compliments, Howard went on to say that he and the other judges would be willing to put up their own money to produce a show with him.
Throughout the competition, the judges have used Unity in Motion as the standard for all other dance groups. But even though they were excellent this week, putting them up against the other acts in this round may have proved fatal.
Eric & Olivia performed a slow rendition of Taio Cruz’s "Dynamite". Sharon loved her unusual voice, but Howard felt that Olivia got lost in the song. There was no emotional connection to the music.
All the judges thought Lindsey Norton was incredible at what she does. She deserves a place in the Olympics. But like Unity in Motion, she may not move on in the competition, even if she does deserve a spot.
Horse is the kind of act only some people can appreciate. His entire performance is centered around getting kicked “down there.” Although, this time he added a storyline in which he was a superhero fighting villainous bank robbers. Entertaining...at best.
Olate Dogs closed the show with a good performance, but a bit sloppier than last time since not all of the dogs cooperated. The judges adored them nonetheless and they may still find a spot in the semi-finals.
