America's Got Talent - Season 8

Last week on AGT 2013 auditions, there were some highlights and some lowlights that kicked off a new season. How the hell did Special Head float in the air? Or how did Hype come up with that dance routine in just one night? They will both be in Vegas, so we will be able to see even more of them and see if it was just a fluke!

See who else makes it to Vegas tonight on America’s Got Talent 2013, as the Season 8 auditions continue on NBC. One act looks to be bringing the judges and Nick Cannon outside for some high-flying stunts, so don’t miss it! Keep up and watch the audition videos with us during our Live Recap here!


This post contains AGT Season 8 spoilers from the AGT 2013 auditions. Please stop reading here if you do not want to know who made it through on AGT 2013 Season 8 tonight!


A look back at last week’s auditions and a sneak peek at what they have in store tonight and then we see the judges riding a ferry! The judges take their places and time for things to get started tonight!

Travis Pratt: he is here today because his girlfriend put him up to it. Singing gives him the ability to dream and he wants to show people they can do it too. He surprises everyone when he comes out and sings some high-pitched opera! This manly man can get that high???? Howard Stern said he is a freak, but he means that in a good way. Mel B said he is perfection! Since his girlfriend made him do it, Howie calls her up on stage and Travis ends up proposing! Good thing she said yes! The judges say yes too, so Travis is heading to Vegas!

We then look at some love interests on AGT 2013, as we see a couple do some crazy acrobatic movies and then a couple dance ballroom. The judges claim to be the best foursome of judges in reality TV. Do you agree?

Now a look at the kid dancing couples. First up, Ruby and Jonas, who are nine and ten years old! This is insane to watch, as they are so young but can totally dance! Mel B said they were amazing and wished she had a smidgen of that talent! Heidi said she did not want it to end! It is four yes votes and they are going to Vegas!

Their competition hits the stage, as D’Angelo and Amanda take the stage. They are 12 and 13 years old and Jonas and D’Angelo are brother and sister! D’Angelo and Amanda used to date when they were nine years old, but not now!!! Again, some amazing dancers and so young!!! Howard Stern said this is why he came to San Antonio and Heidi said they were spot-on. It looks like a brother and sister rivalry in Vegas, as D’Angelo moves on with Amanda!

Howard Stern admits that he is not a mariachi band, but Mariachi Nuevo Estillo AVM says they will win him over. I think they did it, as he was smiling throughout the whole routine! They were singing “Sexy and I Know It” and “Apple Bottom Jeans” and more! Howard said he loved it. Mel B said she didn’t know what to expect and she was down with it. The judges loved them and they are going to Vegas! I so want to see more of them!

Pistol Packin’ Paula: she comes out shooting her guns and scaring the hell out of the judges and even whips Nick Cannon, but the judges were not feeling it and she is sent home!

Brad Byers: he is a sword swallower and wants to prove that it is genuine, so he brings x-rays on the stage! He starts with nine swords!!! Why starting so slow on America’s Got Talent 2013??? Good lord! Howie said that danger has been a staple in entertainment and it is a yes from him and Howard agrees. Mel B is afraid of it and doesn’t want to see more of it, so a no from her. Heidi is a yes, so Brad is going to Vegas!

Brad Byers, 53 ~ AGT 2013 San Antonio Auditions by HumanSlinky

Collins Key: his parents are his biggest supporters and magic is something he loves to do. He runs backstage and gets a popcorn bag. He then gets a dollar bill from Howie and said no dollar bill has the same serial code and has Howard read it out. He then makes the dollar bill go in the popcorn bag! It is amazing and Howie said he thinks he just stepped into his future at 16 years old and he is going to Vegas!

Collins Key, 16 ~ AGT 2013 San Antonio Auditions by HumanSlinky

Megan Piphus: she was a shy kid and used ventriloquism as a child to get past it. She comes out and impresses me. She has two characters with her and she sings with them! Heidi thinks she has star quality and Howard said she has a great singing voice and he is a big fan. The judges loved her and it is Vegas for Megan!

Megan Piphus, 20 ~ AGT 2013 New Orleans Auditions by HumanSlinky

Jonathan Allen: his parents kicked him out on his birthday when he turned 18 years old because of his gay lifestyle. He uses music to escape. He said he loves his parents still and hopes they still do too. Such a sad story, but shame on his parents!!! Howie said to show his parents what they are missing out on!  Whether he is good or not, you want to root for him. He comes out and sings opera and nails it! So good and Mel B said he stood their with confidence and he made her melt. Howie said they are his family now and welcome! Johnathan is going to Vegas!

Alexandria the Great is one of a handful of woman in the world that is an escape artist. She is 51 years old and this has been her hobby, but took time off to start a family and have a career as a teacher. She is back doing it and they head to the pool to check out her routine. She has her legs and hands shackled and 30 feet of chain wrapped around her. She exhales before she jumps in and here we go! She is under the water for 1:30 and doesn’t seem to be moving and the judges are freaking out! 1:36 and up she comes and she is out of the shackles. Howard said it is a homerun and the judges give her four yes votes and she is escaping her way to Vegas!

JC Starbright: he looks like a hot mess and his passion is writing songs. He aspires to be the next Lady Gaga! He starts singing and Howard hits the buzzer within like three seconds! It doesn’t take long for the other judges to join him on America’s Got Talent 2013 and JC is going home. Nick Cannon thinks it will be a hit record and they do it again, but he joins him on stage and lets his midriff hang out!

Andrew Ward: he tries to tell a ghost story, but it is not received well and he is going home.

Andrew Ward, 34 ~ AGT 2013 New Orleans Auditions by HumanSlinky

Sam Johnson: he comes out saying he will do a headstand, but how hard is that to do? Well, it is even harder to do it on an 80-foot pole! They head out and the wind has picked up. Sam is nervous, but he still goes up and I am nervous for him. The pole is swaying back and forth, but he still gets up there and does a handstand! Howard said they need him on the show and people love danger. Four yeses for Sam!

Sam Johnson, 34 ~ AGT 2013 New Orleans Auditions by HumanSlinky

Paul Thomas Mitchell: this is the last audition of the night on America’s Got Talent 2013. He grew up with music as his release when dealing with alcoholic parents. His Mom was a drug addict and left them, but his Dad changed his life around and is sober to give his son the life he wants. He comes out and sings “My Life,” a song he wrote himself. I loved it and it gave me chills! He has a very raspy, but solid voice and has a story everyone will love. Heidi said John Mayer better watch out and Howard thinks he has star power. I don’t think there is a dry eye in the stadium! He is going to Vegas!
