The stakes were higher than ever on the July 17 episode of ‘America’s Got Talent,’ as the last round of Vegas auditions brought out some incredible performances — but left some going back home!
Next stop, Radio City Music Hall! The July 17 episode of America’s Got Talent gave us one final round of auditions before the remaining contestants jet off to New York City and go head-to-head in the competition. Some contestants didn’t quite live up to expectations, while others blew us away!
Top 5 Performances For July 17
5. Special Head
While his stage name is strange to say the least, this performer still wowed us with his insane levitation skills. Special Head defied gravity — and managed to levitate over burning candles! He was completely bent over backwards and parallel to his knees. Special Head clearly has something “special,” and we wonder what he’ll do next.
4. Collins Key
This cute magician from Los Angeles was spot-on when he said, “There’s never been a teenage heartthrob with magic.” Well, now that we think about it, he’s right! The judges were stunned by his next magic trick. We love that he is able to connect with the judges with his act and take the shock value to a personal level. Mel B said over and over, “I love him,” but Howard Stern still thinks he can go bigger. We’ll see next week in New York, Howard!
3. Marty Brown
This country crooner, who made our hearts melt when he sang for his wife at his first audition, brought his voice back for another shot at stardom. He sang “When You Say Nothing At All,” and it was a simply wonderful performance. You can feel the love he has for his wife every time he sings. He absolutely deserved that spot on the stage at Radio City Music Hall, and we know his wife will be in the front row cheering him on.
2. Jonathan Allen
Talk about an inspiration. This 20-year-old man, who struggled with coming out to his parents, said that anytime he was lonely, “music was there.” Jonathan continues to blow us away with his incredible, operatic voice. He sang “First Time I Ever Saw Your Face,” and Heidi Klum was firmly championing his talent amongst the other judges. You can tell Jonathan really wants this chance to prove himself. We’re not going to lie, we were crying along with him when the judges told him he was going to Vegas.
1. Chloe Channell
This adorable country cutie continues to charm us with her southern sass. But that’s not all; Chloe has a voice that is absolutely incredible for an 11-year-old! She took on Reba McEntire’s “Turn On Your Radio” and proved she is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the country music world. Howie Mandel questioned her about whether or not she’s had breakups and she boldly said, “Well my dad said boys are the devil.” That’s it. We are in love with this adorable girl and her voice.
The Vegas round is over and the remaining contestants are moving on to New York City to perform live at Radio City Music Hall! The competition is about to get more intense than ever — we can’t wait!
