Bicyclist Matt Wilhelm lit up the stage (Chris Haston/NBC)For the talented masses who couldn't make it to an "America's Got Talent" tryout in person, the show also opens its doors to YouTube submissions. And so, after 10 weeks of the fire-eaters and jump-ropers we've been following since tryouts, this week the show unveiled the best of the online auditions onstage and in person from Hollywood.
Piers was in an especially bad mood this week, buzzing four acts in a row -- including an adorable pint-size gymnast. Luckily, Sharon and Howie were there to offset his grumpiness, helping America find four acts to advance into the main competition. Let's take a look at them.
Most Surprising: Matt Wilhelm
This year seems to be all about the acts in the dark. Just last week we had Team iLuminate, and this week we have Matt Wilhelm, a black-light stunt bicyclist. His act would be charming and cool in full light, but in the dark, it becomes extremely dangerous -- and maybe even worth a million dollars.
Kevin Colis has wanted to be a professional singer since childhood, but once he reached 30, he thought it was time to put that dream away. But his supportive fiancée saw the YouTube auditions as a way for Kevin to show the world his talent. His rendition of Bruno Mars's "The Lazy Song" didn't necessarily win over Howie, but Piers was a fan -- and so was America.
Beth Ann Robinson
Alabama native Beth Ann Robinson is just 14 years old -- with a stage presence that performers twice her age would love to have. The judges were concerned whether a solo dance act would be able to make it all the way to the finals, but no one doubted the teen's talent.
Gymkana is a college acrobatic team that's been around since 1946. For a group that claims anyone can join, they sure do look polished and professional. These "amateurs" had a sleeker performance than any acrobatic troupe we've seen. Even before the votes, Gymkana's semifinal spot was all but assured.
