In the third heat of the Season 7 quarterfinals on "America's Got Talent," 12 more acts vied for four spots.
Young dancers The Untouchables executed precise ballroom moves. Howard Stern called them inspiring. Howie Mandel said they'd exceeded expectations.
Rock Star Juggler Mike Price juggled knives and torches on a unicycle (dropping one). Finally, he juggled flaming bowling pins. Sharon Osbourne said the act didn't work. Howard praised his expertise, but didn't think America would advance him.
Inspire the Fire sang and danced to Katy Perry's "Firework." While they hit some rough spots, they had great energy. Howard said it felt like a rehearsal.
Christin Sandu stacked a series of tubes before balancing on top. Unfortunately, the pile of tubes collapsed. Howard, noting that Cristin's studying medicine, wished him luck in that career.
Charismatic dancer Elusive combined breakdancing and tricks to James Brown's "Superbad." Howie found it dazzling. Howard said to compete with Turf, he's got to develop new moves.
Jake Wesley Rogers, 15-year-old singer/pianist, wore a blue jacket and horn-rimmed glasses for his slowed-down version of Britney Spears' "Toxic." Howard complimented his hair but disliked the song. Howie called the arrangement strained. Sharon liked his confidence.
All Wheel Sports included gymnastics, BMX tricks, roller blading, trampolines, and dancers. Howard questioned whether America would get it, though he thought they did great. Howie saw them as a Las Vegas headlining show.
Wordspit and the Illest! combined hip-hop with jazzy pop in an original song, "Lights, Cameras Flashing." Howie thought they'd cut their chances by singing an unfamiliar song. Howard loved it, calling their musicianship "off the charts."
Low-key comedian Jacob Williams took his set in a wonderfully bizarre direction, involving imagery of himself in a Batman suit. Sharon liked his awkwardness, but found his material mediocre. Howard called his likeability "off the charts" and predicted a huge career.
Drag queen All Beef Patty sang "Let's Hear it for the Boy" with dancers in football pants. She wore an '80s-inspired outfit with bright pink top, multicolored skirt, sparkly green tights, and denim jacket. Howie was disappointed at her failure to use the stage. Sharon thought she looked and sounded like "a chunky Cher," but had played it safe.
Spencer Horsman escaped from a metal strait jacket inside a bag suspended over spikes. The act took place behind a screen, making it less dramatic. Sharon found it clever, but boring. Howie termed it more a magic trick than an escape.
Lightwire Theater performed with lit bird puppets in the dark, which is probably more impressive live. Howie predicted they'd go to the finals. Sharon found it spectacular.
Summing up, Howard called it a strange night with lots of nerves. He predicted a close vote, but refrained from specifics.
