America's Got Talent: Season 7, Episode 22 :: YouTube Auditions

This week on America’s Got Talent (Season 7, Episode 22), 12 new contestants take to the stage, courtesy of America’s votes! Read Kidzworld’s recap of “YouTube Auditions,” which aired on August 14, 2012, to discover what you missed.

YouTube Round

After a 2 week hiatus for the 2012 Summer Olympics, America’s Got Talent returns with the YouTube round of auditions. Last year, this round delivered 10-year-old opera star Jackie Evancho who became the runner-up and is now an international sensation. This year, Howard expected no less. Unfortunately, he was bitterly disappointed.

The Acts

Clint Carvalho and His Extreme Parrots successfully completed their trick of having a cockatoo free fall from a building outside and fly to him in the AGT auditorium, but it wasn’t that grand of a trick. Big whoop for a bird to free fall. I mean, come on. Birds can fly!

Next, the wannabe rock band Reverse Order hit the stage with a rendition of Katy Perry’s [kwlink 26310"]I Kissed a Girl"[/kwlink]. The judges said that even though they’re good looking, they need more time to gel as a band.

Rudy Coby, a weird puppet magician, was a little too slow getting to the punchline of his trick, but the overall trick was impressive - at least Howie thought so.

Howie buzzed 7 in Unison, a group of female dancers, who were good but didn’t wow the judges with their performance. Being on such a dance-driven season, they really needed to stand out.

Sharon liked 16-year-old Drew Erwin who sang and played guitar to Torn by Natalie Imbruglia. He did extremely well for his first time on stage, though Howard thought he came off “green.” He’ll need a lot of training and practice if he wants to make it big.

Comedian Melinda Hill received an icy reception from the audience for her stand-up act. Her first two jokes were funny, but it all went downhill after that.

Eric Buss performed a novelty act in which he released large plastic French fries from some homemade contraptions in time with music. Howard called his act a colossal waste of time.

Howard had nothing good to say to Romeo Dance Cheetah, a 30-year-old air guitarist. Not only is his act not a real talent, but he didn’t even do it well.

The first contestant to bring some legitimate talent to the stage this week was The Magic of Puck who, as the joke goes, made a hanky dance. His act wasn’t necessarily grand in the fiery, explosive sense of the word, but it was certainly entertaining and worth being sent through to the semi-finals.

Teenage country singer Bria Kelly is sure to be a star. She knocked it out of the park with her act, although Sharon did offer one piece of advice: to shout less and stick to the melody more. Howie called her the stand out act of the night.

Cast in Bronze, a masked mystery man, played an unusual instrument called the carillon. It wasn’t a hobby or talent for this man, more a way of life. This really creeped the judges out and if they hadn’t been outside to watch his act, they would have buzzed him off the stage.

According to Howie, they really did save the best for last. The Academy of Villains stormed the stage with an amazing dance performance. Sharon said that the whole night was worth it just to get them.

Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.

Usually I see them wear our school uniform. But whenever they get a chance to wear any colored dress to school, they wear jeggings and sleeve-less/half-sleeved tops. And their HAIR, OMG! They do SO MANY STUPID STYLES, even when they wear their school uniform, their hair is just in SO MANY STYLES!!
