The America’s Got Talent 2013 auditions take us to Chicago tonight on AGT 2013, as the Midwest tries to show the judges they have what it takes to make it to Las Vegas on America’s Got Talent Season 8. Nick Cannon joins the AGT 2013 judges ((Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Howard Stern and Mel B) in Chicago to check out who has what it takes to move on in the competition. Come find out with us during our America’s Got Talent 2013 Live Recap and see how the Chicago auditions on America’s Got Talent Season 8 go!
We seemed to focus on more of the singing talent last week on AGT Season 8, as some great singers took the stage and moved on to Las Vegas, including Jonathan Allen, Paul Thomas Mitchell and Travis Pratt. We were also treated to an amazing magic trick from Collins Key, so it looks like AGT 2013 is bringing us some young talent this season, which could be a good thing.
Tonight that could change, as one of the previews for tonight’s auditions on America’s Got Talent 2013 showed an elderly gentleman lifting some major weights. Good for him! Watch with us in our Live Recap that follows!
WARNING: AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2013 SPOILERS AHEAD!
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!
We start with a look back at some of the highlights of the auditions from the first two weeks and what can we expect still to come! The judges are in their seats and now we can get to the auditions!
Up first is Omega Force Strength Team and they have the world’s oldest weightlifter, who is 75 years old! They are entertaining and the old man does his thing with the weights. Howard Stern said they are inspirational. Mel B said they are entertaining and definitely a family show and this is what they did. It didn’t do it for Howie Mandel, so he is a no. The other judges are all a yes, so they are going to Vegas!
The crazy strength acts continue, as Team Rock takes the stage and does some tae kwon do and Howard loved it and they are going to Vegas. They did some amazing tricks and were entertaining!
Now we get to see the cutest little girl take the stage, as five-year-old Darby takes the stage with her coach and he flings her all around and she does some amazing tricks for a little girl. The judges love her and four yeses for her!
Time for the dance portion of America’s Got Talent 2013, as Kenichi Ebina takes the stage and he has a dance-ish performance. He started out doing the running man and that’s where he discovered his love for dancing. He does some amazing moves and how he can move his body like that is amazing! The audience is loving him and the judges give him a standing ovation! Mel B said that was off the chain. Howard said it was The Matrix movie all in 90 seconds. Needless to say, the judges all say yes! Howard said he is the best dancer they have seen this season!
We have an emotional audition, as Deanna DellaCioppa takes the stage. She has been told her whole life that she needs to lose weight to make it in the business. She has lacked the confidence and now at 39 years old she feels this is her last chance. She comes out and gives me chills! This is Jennifer Hudson ground she is stepping on and holding herself strong. Such a great audition! Howie said she has a great sound and heart and that song is going to change her life. Four yes votes and she is going to Vegas!
We have now entered the weird science portion of the auditions and up first is Sprice, who builds a machine that I don’t even know what it is. He builds these things that are a chain reaction to make it all tumble down. He has been working on it for the past three days in the lobby. They head out there and Nick Cannon gets things started with the first domino. This is beyond awesome, as the whole contraption goes down and he is a genius. Howard said he loves it and congratulations on that working out. Mel B found it very unique and creative. The judges want to see more and he is going to Vegas on America’s Got Talent 2013!
Rong Niu was originally from China, but now living in San Francisco. She comes off as a goofy lady, but she is going to attempt to fling some bowls around and catch them on her head while riding a unicycle! She gets on her TALL unicycle and Nick brings out the bowls and here we go. She starts with one and then moves it up to three and gets it. Mel B is afraid she is going to fall and break her neck and so am I!!!! She moves it to five bowls and nails it! Mel B said she was amazing. Howie said that was the most amazing, no way that can happen and thanks her for being there. Howard said she is fearless and the best thing he has seen in Chicago. They definitely want to see more from her, so she is going to Vegas!
The day is coming to an end and the last act of the day is The American Military Spouses Choir, who is a singing group af Army wives and they call themselves a sisterhood. They provide support for each other and depend on each other. They say they have to come together or they wouldn’t survive. It truly puts the life of an Army wife in perspective. Their story is so good and their performance is pretty good. They make you want to like them and the services they provide to soldiers. Standing ovation from the crowd and judges! Howie said he was just overjoyed to sit there and listen to them. Heidi loved it and wants them to go on and sing more. Howard said they remind him of how lucky we are to live in this country. The judges loved them and they are headed to Vegas!
