Hey, “America’s Got Talent” fans. Tonight, June 11, 2019, episode 3 of this current 14th season did indeed air, and it featured more audition rounds. Of course, the judges: Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel were on hand.
A lady named Marina Marzepa kicked off the auditions for tonight’s episode. She’s a dancer/contortionist. She was apparently on “So You Think You Can Dance” in 2018. She started off her routine with some ballet moves. Then she did some contemporary dancing.
Afterwards, Gabrielle told Marina, “That was amazing! That was so strong and precise.” Howie said, “You’re a true artist.” Julianne said, “You were strong, powerful yet graceful and elegant.” Simon compared her to the Exorcist. Marina got 4 yeses from the judges. So, she’s off to the next round.
Next, a magician named Dom Chambers hit the stage. During his act, he used a paper bag to make glasses of beer appear and disappear. He mixed comedy into his routine. The crowd loved him.
Afterwards, Julianne told Dom,”I’m completely blown away.” Gabrielle said,”You’re super refreshing.” Simon said, “It was an amazing audition and very much of the Youtube generation.” Howie said, “You come with the full package.” Dom got 4 yeses from the judges.
After that, a 55 year old, female singer named Carmen Carter hit the stage. Apparently, she had a pretty impressive resume. She claimed she sang at the Superbowl with Maroon 5, and performed with the Dancing with the Stars house band from 2005-2012. She ended up singing, “Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS, and the crowd loved her.
Afterwards, Gabrielle told Carmen, “Your voice is a gift and a blessing.” Julianne said, “You’re an artist. Nobody will be forgetting your name.” Howie said, “You’re beautiful. Don’t change anything.” Simon said, ” I admire that you didn’t come out as a victim.” Carmen got 4 yeses from the judges.
Next,54 year old Edson and 84 year old Leon hit the stage. They are hand balancers. They did an agile acrobat act that took tons of strength to pull off. Afterwards, Howie told them, “Your strength is unexpected.” Gabrielle said, “You guys knocked it out of the park.” Julianne said, “Age is nothing but a number!” Simon said, “This is exactly why we created this show.” Edson and Leon got 4 yeses from the judges.
After that, a comedic animal impersonator named Sethward arrived on stage. He was apparently a returning contestant from last season. He failed last year, and this year was no different. He was immediately buzzed by all the judges and dragged off stage by host Terry Crews. Next, they showed a montage of more terrible acts.
Then they somehow let Sethward back on stage to impersonate a walrus. He ended up falling off the stage. However, this time, Howie gave him a yes saying, “I think America’s is going to love you.” Simon also gave him a yes, but Julianne and Gabrielle just weren’t having it. They both gave him a no again. Thank God.
After all that madness,a 13 year old singer named Charlotte Summers hit the stage. She’s from Marbella, Spain. She had already done a few talent shows. After her performance, Howie told Charlotte, “You’re beautiful and sassy.” Gabrielle said, “You have great depth and soul.” Julianne said, “I love you.” Simon suggested she drop backing tracks next time. Charlotte got 4 yeses from the judges.
Next, 49 year old comedian Kevin Schwartz hit the stage. The crowd ended up liking his performance. Afterwards, Julianne told Kevin, “Rough start, but you got me!” Gabrielle said, “You came out here, and you killed. You’re a freaking star.” Simon said, “I thought the second half was really funny.” Howie said, “I saw your nerves, but I think you’re really wonderful.” Kevin got 4 yeses from the judges.
31 year old MacKenzie arrived on stage next. He’s a singer from Virginia. Now, living in Los Angeles,California. He ended up singing, “Nothing Compares to U” by Prince. The crowd loved it.
Afterwards, Howie told MacKenzie, “You’re a shining star.” Gabrielle said, “I’m just rooting for you.” Julianne said, “You are a star!” Simon said, “It was a great moment.” MacKenzie got 4 yeses from the judges.
Next up, was a comedian named Yurian Retriever. She’s from Japan. Her routine ended up being quite silly as she pealed off her sweats to reveal she was wearing a skimpy one piece suit. She started prancing around a bit before Simon and Julianne buzzed her. However, Howie and Gabrielle gave her a yes, but 2 yeses aren’t enough. So, Yurian was out.
From there, a ventriloquist/comic named Michael Paul hit the stage. Apparently,he’s been doing his act for a long 25 years.
After his performance, Simon said,”My son Eric would love it. It was fantastic.” Julianne said, “It was fun.” Howie said, “I believe you changed your life tonight.” Gabrielle said, “I usually don’t like your type of act, but you made me a believer.” Michael got 4 yeses from the judges.
The last performer of the night was 11 year old child violinist named Tyler Butler-Figueroa. During his routine, he played, “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson. The crowd loved him.
Afterwards, Julianne gave Tyler major props. Simon said, “You’re an extraordinary young man. You have such an amazing talent.” Then Simon gave him the coveted Golden Buzzer! That means Tyler will go straight through to the LIVE shows in Hollywood, California.
