'America's Got Talent': Veteran Tim Poe Moves The Crowd To Tears

Plus, a human cannonball almost dies and a big fat lady in a bikini works on a pole. God bless America!

Some people are just made to audition for America’s Got Talent, and this week’s golden contestant came in the form of Tim Poe, a Texas native who suffered a debilitating injury during the war in Afghanistan which left him with a severe stutter. Fortunately, Tim doesn’t stutter when he sings, so he had the entire Austin auditorium — wait, make that all of America — eating out of the palm of his hand June 4 as he crooned a smooth country ditty.

OK, now let’s talk about six other acts of note from the evening…

Sebastian de la Cruz, 10, and his mariachi band:

Dubbed the “little Mexican male Jackie Evancho” by Mr. Howie Mandel, this kid opened the show and had the entire crowd on its feet. It wasn’t really my cup of tea, but I’m not surprised the judges put him through to Vegas. Howard Stern probably didn’t want to make another little kid cry.

Acrobat brothers:

I’m not going to pretend like these two didn’t impress me, because they did, but I can’t help compare them to another acrobatic act we saw earlier this season — Donovan and Rebecca, the couple with the amazing balancing act — and these guys paled in comparison.

Ganbaatar’s contortionist sisters:

These two beautiful, flexible ladies weren’t just crowd pleasers — they were Howard pleasers.

LuLu, the plus-sized pole dancer:

OK, this lady didn’t make it to Vegas, but I can’t not talk about her. Her name is LuLu and she’s a pole dancer. The catch? Well, look at her:

At the very least, I expect this woman to get a show on TLC.

Joe Castillo, the sand man:

The first thing you should know about me is that I friggin’ LOVE sand art. And not only did Mr. Castillo create a beautifully patriotic story with his sand, but he even set it to Lee Greenwood‘s “God Bless The USA.” Seriously, a more patriotic song does not exist. Of course he’s going to Vegas.

David Smith Jr., the human cannonball:

There isn’t much to say about this guy, except he’s obviously out of his mind… with talent!

OK, Americans, what was YOUR favorite act of the night? Vote below, then drop a comment with more of your thoughts!
