Things went a little south on this week's AGT, and by south, we mean straight to Tampa Bay, Florida, where the temperatures were high and the talent pool was decidedly lacking. Between the "real Edward Scissorhands" and a plethora of dancers with no dancing skill whatsoever, even sweet Sharon resorted to yelling "NO!" to get one of them off the stage. But let's skip those bad auditions and take a look at the few hidden gems that had the judges talking.
Most Surprising: All That
"All That" is a big name to live up to, but these country-music cloggers sure did it justice. And really, who's ever heard of such a thing – macho, tattooed, country-music clogging? These guys need to be seen to be believed.
They're With the Band
The Distinguished Gentlemen of Brass are former theme-park employees who found themselves without jobs and still with an excess of talent. They decided to put their skills to use and formed a new band – to "make their own fortune." These showmen are ones to watch in the next round.
Inspire the Fire
Singing group Inspire the Fire calls itself the "urban Glee," and though there was little urban to this poppy song-and-dance routine, no one can deny the talent. It came as no surprise when Inspire got tickets directly to Vegas.
He Almost Missed the Boat
49-year-old Ulysses has wanted to be a performer since watching "The Ed Sullivan Show" in his childhood. With hair like Don King and sweaters straight from Cliff Huxtable's closet, the judges weren't sure what to expect from Ulysses. His rendition of "The Love Boat" didn't do much to silence the controversy – Howie and Sharon voted him through, but Stern just wanted him off the stage.
