Judge cuts are back! Night 2 of ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge cuts will bring back more fan faves for another round of performances. Who made it through? Read our recap now!
Another Tuesday night means another round of judge cuts on America’s Got Talent. Olivia Munn is the guest judge this week. The Human Fountains kick off the night with a strange and gross performance. Not only do they spit water, they spit out orange juice, and then drink it. But that’s not all. One member of the group breaks an egg in another’s mouth, and then they spit that same egg yolk in the other members’ mouths. It’s absolutely disgusting.
Simon Cowell doesn’t even know how he’s supposed to judge this act. Meanwhile, Mel B loves the Human Fountains. Howie Mandel calls the group his “personal nightmare,” but he likes them.
Magician Shin Lim is up next, and he uses Olivia to help with his performance. His card tricks are phenomenal. You never know what he’s going to do next. All of the judges give him a standing ovation. The first thing Simon says is, “Bloody hell.” Olivia tells Shin that he’s “truly amazing.” Heidi Klum goes so far as to say that he’s one of the only magicians who make her believe that “magic can be possible.”
The Melisizwe Brothers and Macey Mac perform for the judges, but it’s Sophie Fatu who really takes their breath away. The 5-year-old, who is the youngest AGT contestant ever, sings a damn good rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” The judges love her. The little girl is so adorable, too. She even gushes that Simon’s son, Eric, makes “my heart melt.”
The next group to really impress the judges is the Angel City Chorale. Howie applauds the group for taking him on a journey. Olivia says the ACC is “so inspirational” and then gives them the Golden Buzzer!
Singer, dancer, and accordionist extraordinaire Hans comes back with yet another energetic and entertaining performance. Mel B calls him “the gift that keeps on giving.” Extreme jump roper Vivien Vajda returns and reveals that she’s sprained both ankles since her first audition. Despite her injuries, she still puts on an incredible performance. What a trooper. Illusionist Rob Lake didn’t have the best first audition, but he’s back and ready to fight for his spot. This time around, he kills it. Simon says Rob’s act is “quite incredible.”
The next round of singers don’t get off on the best foot. Leah Mathies and Hunter Price perform original songs that the judges aren’t crazy about. Joseph O’Brien decides to sing “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” but Simon stops him halfway through his performance. Simon isn’t feeling this song. Joseph opts to try again with an original song. This performance is 10 times better than the first!
The last performance is comedian Vicki Barbolak. She slays the stage with her jokes. “You are my favorite comedian this year,” Heidi says. The judges then have to decide who they want to send to the live shows. The 6 lucky contestants are: Joseph O’Brien, Shin Lim, Rob Lake, The Future Kingz, Hans, and Vicki Barbolak.
