America’s Got Talent 2013 Live Recap: Week 4 Of Season 8 Auditions

With The Voice 2013 Season 4 coming to an end last week, NBC is now depending on America’s Got Talent 2013 to pick up where The Voice left off. AGT Season 8 brought on Heidi Klum and Mel B to join Howard Stern and Howie Mandel as the judges for AGT 2013 and they have fit in very nicely. The auditions continue tonight on AGT Season 8, so come watch with us during our America’s Got Talent 2013 Live Recap and see who made it to Vegas on AGT 2013 tonight with us!

America's Got Talent - Season 8

We are only into Week 4 of auditions on America’s Got Talent Season 8, but there have been some pretty sweet acts that have come across the stage already, including Kenichi Ebina and his matrix-style dancing last week on America’s Got Talent 2013. NBC wants you to judge these people before they even take the stage and Kenichi seemed like a goofball and I thought he was going to be a big joke. Boy was I wrong! His dance skills were amazing and how he could move his body that way was out of this world!

Will we have any more shockers tonight on AGT 2013? You betcha, so keep up with everything with our Live Recap that follows, including videos of the AGT Season 8 auditions!


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!


It looks like we start out tonight in NYC! Will the big city shine? Let’s get it started!

Struck Boyz

Struck Boyz, 8-11 ~ AGT 2013 New York Auditions by HumanSlinky

They are a group of cute litte boys and will be doing some hip hop dancing. They come in their camouflage pants and are ready to shine! These boys were so cute and so good. Heidi said seven little Justin Bieber’s. Howard said they are little stars and have a lot of commitment to this. The judges are impressed and they are definitely going to Vegas!

KriStef Brothers

KriStef Brothers, 24, 26 ~ AGT 2013 New York Auditions by HumanSlinky

The guys grew up in the circus and want to change what people think of hand-balancers. They seem fun and come out wearing no shoes! They do some amazing tricks and this is some true talent and takes some strength. They strip down to their underwear, so Heidi is happy! Howie thinks it is a twist on a circus act and likes it. Heidi is a yes right away! The other judges join her and they are going to Vegas!

Aneya Marie

Aneya Marie, 25 ~ AGT 2013 New York Auditions by HumanSlinky

She is a singing mime, so she is a rick taker and ruler breaker and Howie seems to be interested in what she is going to do. It didn’t take long for him to become uninterested, as he hits his buzzer right away on AGT 2013. The other judges join him, but Heidi takes a little longer because she can’t hear her singing over all the boos. She thinks it will take off though and come back to teach everyone!

We get a run of bad auditions on America’s Got Talent 2013, as the judges are not enjoying themselves and hitting their buzzers very quickly!!!

Unsuccessful ~ AGT 2013 New York Auditions by HumanSlinky


Hammerstep, 18-30 ~ AGT 2013 New York Auditions by HumanSlinky

This is a dance crew that blends Irish Step with hip hop. As weird as it sounds, this crew makes it work and I am impressed (even while wearing gas masks). However, how much more can they do? Mel B it blew her away and she has never seen it before. Heidi likes the mixture and it was hardcore. The judges loved it and they are moving on to Vegas!

This is followed by a run of good auditions on AGT Season 8 and they all make it to Vegas and we head to commercial! After a look at some talented kids, time for our next act.

Successful ~ AGT 2013 New York Auditions by HumanSlinky

Aaralyn & Izzy

Aaralyn & Izzy, 6, 9 ~ AGT 2013 New York Auditions by HumanSlinky

She is a cute little girl, but she comes out and is shocked by what comes out of her mouth. She is a big screamer and like a scream rock. I have no idea how she did it and it is shocking. Mel B said that Scary Spice is officially scared. Howie loves the kind of music and he wants to see her in Vegas. Mel B is a no, but Heidi and Howard said yes and they are going to Vegas!

Virginia State University Gospel Chorale

Virginia State University Gospel Chorale, 18-59 ~ AGT NYC Auditions by HumanSlinky

Howie asked why they deserve this and they said they are going to show us something they have never seen before. Do you believe him on America’s Got Talent 2013? They are great and brought us to church, but I can’t see them as a Vegas show. Howard said this was exciting and this act will be loved by America. Mel B wants to join them! Four yeses and they are going to Vegas!

Chris Antes

Chris Antes, 42 ~ AGT 2013 LA Auditions by HumanSlinky

This is a big dork and he is going to show us his talent of chewing gum! He calls it oralgami and it is sculpting gum. He needs to get closer to the judges so they can see what he is doing, so explain to me how this could be a Vegas act? Howard buzzes him right away and it may have gotten to him, but he claims to have made a dolphin and a snail. The judges can not determine what it is and he is a goner.

Brandon & Savannah

Brandon & Savannah, 15, 13 ~ AGT 2013 LA Auditions by HumanSlinky

The judges just talked about not wanting an act to sing an original song, unless it is really good. This is a brother (15 years old) and sister (13 years old) singing and they definitely do not look that young! It may be an original song, but it is very upbeat and catchy and they have the judges liking it. They are entertaining and I think they could do well on AGT 2013! Mel B did not like the song, but she found them captivating. Howard said they belong on this stage and good job. The judges give out for yes votes and they are going to Vegas!

Taylor Williamson

Taylor Williamson, 26 ~ AGT 2013 LA Auditions by HumanSlinky

He is performing stand-up comedian tonight and has performed this year at a coffee shop, laundry mat and a sweet sixteen birthday party. Things are going well for him. He is strange and awkward, but he does a very good job. I just want to hear him talk with people. Howie said he is very funny and he has great stage presence. Heidi said he was funny in a shy/dorky kind of way. It is a definite yes for Taylor and he is going to Vegas on AGT Season 8.

Jacob Calle

Jacob Calle, 31 ~ AGT 2013 LA Auditions by HumanSlinky

Howard Stern wants to see a magician win AGT Season 8. Jacob is inspired by David Blaine, but I don’t see it. He starts out eating some string and then pulls it out of his stomach. He then puts a scorpion in his mouth and blows bubbles! In the meantime, he gets biten by the scorpion. Howard said it was a snorefest and all the judges agree. It is a no for Jacob and then we continue a strong of bad magicians in Hollywood!

Naathan Phan

Naathan Phan, 24 ~ AGT 2013 LA Auditions by HumanSlinky

He starts out with some lame act, where he sings and “escapes” from a straight jacket. The judges were not impressed, but he gets another chance to show them a card trick. Seems like a big chance on his part, but the judges love his card trick and he is going to Vegas now!


Forte, 22-33 ~ AGT 2013 LA Auditions by HumanSlinky

These guys met three days ago and this is their first performance together! How is that even possible? They met online a few weeks ago, but put this performance together over the past couple days. As bad as it sounds, you know this is going to be good, right? They sing their opera tune and the judges and audience love it. I think everyone is shocked, but I’m not. Are you? Mel B said she did not expect and all three of them sounded amazing in that song. Forte is headed to Vegas!

That wraps it up for tonight on AGT 2013. Who was your favorite audition of the night?

  1. weellll when are the next auditions im interested

  2. Joe North says:

    I find Howard Stern repulsive. I can’t say much about his judging ability because I turn off America has talent as soon as I see his face. I would prefer to watch America has talent re-runs than to have to listen to him.
