America’s Got Talent continued on Tuesday night and for the first time in 15 seasons, the acts performed in front of no audience due to COVID-19.
Still, the episode featured comedians, danger, and some just downright weird acts. In case you missed it, here’s a recap of the best and worst acts from the sixth week of auditions.
If you thought you’ve seen this guy before, you are correct! Michael is a former E! News reporter who is now trying his luck at making everyone laugh. Doing this without an audience would be tough but Michael’s set was hilarious as he talked about getting older and the difference between older and younger people. He made the judges laugh enough to earn four yeses and advance to the next round of the competition.
The comedian from Texas brought some more laughter to the AGT stage as she performed a hilarious set about her friends and their different personalities. The part that had me laughing uncontrollably was when she pointed out the obvious difference on how each friend sings the national anthem. As you can probably guess, Crystal got four yeses and advanced into the next round of the competition. The comedian category will be a tough one this year with some solid acts in the running.
Anthem and Aria
The magic duo took to the AGT stage and I bet they were glad there was no audience to boo them off of it – that’s how bad their performance was. They were supposed to perform magic but it turned into some weird singing act with kids birthday party tricks. It was awful.
- The lack of audience in the studio highlighted just how important the crowd reaction are to these acts yet simultaneously, it showed the contestants’ raw emotion and highlighted what being on the stage meant to them.
- Judge Howie Mandel hit his Golden Buzzer for poet Brandon Leake, who brought spoken word to the AGT stage for the first time in show history. He performed a piece about the death of his sister that moved Howie so much, he slammed his Golden Buzzer to send Brandon straight into the live shows.
