A man’s life was really in danger because Sofia couldn’t do the only simple thing she needed – and then things got completely derailed!Sofia vergara definitely makes its mark on this season of “America has talent,” and you can see her settling more in her role as judge / artist in this week’s episode. Not only did she laugh hilariously at Heidi Klum accent to be difficult to understand (pot meets kettle), but it absolutely derailed an act of danger so spectacularly that the interpreter had to completely exit the script – and did it beautifully, one might add.
Elsewhere at night, Simon Cowell put a young singer to the test, rejecting her two song choices and sending her to find a better one. When she returned, it was with a mission, a vengeance and a breathtakingly beautiful tribute to her father (we are not crying, you are crying!). About halfway through this week’s show, we got to the part of the auditions where Heidi got sick and had to miss certain acts. This means that we are about to move away from the live audience and, ultimately, live auditions very soon. How much of this will we see? As you may remember, Heidi fell ill early during the coronavirus pandemic, which made her fear that she might have contracted COVID-19. In the end, she was cleared and recovered enough to return to the show, but it was a very different show at the time.
The next episodes should be very interesting. The promos for next week’s show reveal that we are at the auditions where Sofia “Modern family” co-star Eric Stonestreet intervened, so things are about to get weird. For the purposes of this summary, if you only see three “results”, it means that these are acts that Heidi missed. As always, they are in the same order as the judges Howie mandel left to Simon right (from the scene). Just a warning, since I am safe at home, I will probably be a little more severe than my colleagues Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell. But I might be nicer too. May be. And just for fun, I’m going to rank them from worst to first to see how my favorites are doing and whether the judges are doing it or not (ie agree with me).
(singer) While we would have liked to hear Luca jump into a falsetto or higher register as accents to his performance, he certainly caught everyone’s attention by going so much lower than his speaking voice to “Get It On”. It was a memorable audition, but it sometimes sounded like he was trying to be so low, more like a novelty or a gadget than a true vocal style that he adopted. Only additional performances could clarify this, but showing this depth with the range would have been a real spectacle! Result: Y, Y, Y, Y
(Dancer) Noah definitely has a cool presentation when he dances, as well as a creative and surprising mix of isolation, broken bones, robots and a bit of popping. In other words, he’s more than just a puppet up there. And yet we couldn’t help but see it as an act with potential as it grows and tightens its movements more than anything ready to win a show like this right now. The vision is there, but it is not as precise as it must be in execution to really live all these breathtaking moments. Result: Y, Y, Y, Y
(humorist) Poor Christine, she did really well until she crushed a punchline by pronouncing her husband’s name at the end of a large series of children’s complaints. The problem is that nobody knows who he is (she probably wanted to talk about him as her husband). From there, she was so nervous that she couldn’t recover, the audience was nervous, and the energy changed to painful discomfort. We feel bad for her because she was doing really well until then. We absolutely loved seeing Howie come back to offer words of support because she was fighting so much after that. Result: Y, Y, N, N
(family group) This family rock band really creates a complete sound together, and singer Melody is an accomplished rock singer for such a young age. We’ve already seen family groups succeed, and this one definitely took the time to understand their vision as musicians and really brought it to this audition. We can only assume that all judges adopted them based solely on public enthusiasm. Result: Y,?,?,?
(singers) This Arctic Siberian duo brought their unique vocal affections to “Zombie” and made it really like nothing you’ve heard before. It’s always amazing to see a cultural representation in shows like these, and the sharing of everything that makes regions of the world so different (in the United States) so incredible and beautiful. Besides, it was just cool to hear how they interpreted the pet through this filter. Result: Y, Y, Y Y
(ukulele player) This child torn to pieces on a ukulele. One of our favorite things to see on this show is when someone takes something known and pushes it in a whole new direction, breathing new life into something familiar and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. In an audition, Feng proved that you can make the ukulele modern and cool on a familiar track … and you can also make killer guitar solos. Result: Y, Y, Y, Y
(singer) Nolan comes with a heartbreaking and inspiring story of personal persistence and recovery, but more importantly, it came with an incredible instrument. The song was touching, if not absolutely breathtaking, but it had a unique and memorable arrangement. His voice has enough grain and strength that we can easily see how he had a recording contract before he blew it up. He’s a world class singer and someone who can certainly share a story through music, and he is someone special. Result: Y, Y, Y, Y
(sword swallower) Props to Brett, a real showman, for simply going with the flow as his hearing turned into chaos at will. Sofia was an absolutely horrible – but hilarious – stage partner, then he went ahead and swallowed three swords so that each judge could remove one after Simon asked him if he could. We loved the freshness he kept through everything, and we really enjoyed everything about him, even the stuff between the swallowed sword. Result: Y, Y, Y
(singer) Simon put this 12-year-old girl to the test, rejecting her first two songs (the second a cappella) before she could even get into the flesh of the song. On the one hand, it means that he saw something in her that she did not let go of her choice of songs. On the other hand, at 12, it was to destroy his nerves and his confidence. It was clear that she had a good voice, but Simon did not feel his song choices at all. So he asked her to come back this afternoon with a new song (maybe a guy’s song?). Later in the show, Ashley returned for her second hit after apparently rejecting the songs presented to her due to lyric content or simply lack of familiarity. And so she went with an original song written about her father. It was absolutely the right choice, because it was so authentically her voice and her story at the time. A beautifully touching song with a pleasant lyric play played with confidence and with great vocal ability. She hid her real talent under these other songs, but it shone here. Result: Y, Y, Y
(diabolo performers) “AGT” drew a quick shot on us by asking Marco Angelo to start the performance alone (and to give pre-interviews alone) so that his brother Marc joined him as a surprise. It was quite effective, because just by adding a second dolly, they exponentially increased the danger and unpredictability of the whole act. Adding light effects and cool back and forth made it the most exciting diabolo act we’ve ever seen on this stage. Result: Y, Y, Y
(dancers) A new style for the AGT scene, this team brings Litefeet to life with so much fun and contagious energy that you can’t help but keep pace. It was clear that they had perfected this in the metros, as there were many small movements used for maximum effect, including very cool gymnastics and tricks with shoes and hats. It’s an exciting team with a lot of potential if it pushes for a bigger presentation with all that the stage has to offer. Result: Simon’s Golden Buzzer “America’s Got Talent” continues on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. AND on NBC. Do you have a story or advice to give us? Email the TooFab Publishers at [email protected].
