The YouTube round of "America's Got Talent" Season 7 ended with four acts going through, but it started with an Olympic surprise. Gold medalist Gabby Douglas joined Nick Cannon to help him host the show, and she was wearing her gold medals, of course.
The results started with carillon player Cast in Bronze, pop-rock group Reverse Order, and theatrical dance company Academy of Villains. No surprise, creative Academy of Villains who went through to the next round. Howard Stern told them they were winners the previous night and deserved to be voted in.
Just as it seemed Nick was throwing to a break, he introduced the new Justin Bieber video/short film for his song, "As Long As You Love Me." Beebs ran through some European-seeming city and kissed a girl (That sound you hear? Preteen hearts breaking).
The pop band Karmin, who were discovered via the Internet, performed their two original hits, "Brokenhearted" and "Hello." The singer performed some really catchy songs in front of a color block screen. Very cool.
Next to hear results were dance ensemble 7 in Unison, singer Bria Kelly, and illusionist Rudy Coby. Sharon Osbourne thanked them all for being on the show and apologized to Ruby for being hard on him. The act advancing, Nick announced, was Bria Kelly. Howie Mandell said America got it right.
Immediately afterward The Magic of Puck, novelty act Eric Buss, and stand-up comedian Melinda Hill were called up. The act moving forward was The Magic of Puck. This made Sharon happy, because she said that Puck deserves this.
Back from the commercial break, Randall, a comedian who's popular on YouTube with his video about "The Honey Badger," did his own take on the show. He narrated an edited montage, describing the judges as if they were honey badgers. Cute.
This was followed by a videotaped segment about a day in the life of Howard Stern, following him to his radio studio, and then to the "America's Got Talent" studios, of course. It was punctuated with Howard's dry humor.
Finally, animal act Clint Carvalho and His Extreme Parrots, air guitarist Romeo Dance Cheetah, and singer/guitarist Drew Erwin stepped forward for their results. Romeo Dance Cheetah was sent home, and the judges deliberated who to keep during the commercial break. Howard reiterated his main points from last night about each of them: Clint nailed it and that it wasn't Drew's time. He voted for Clint. Sharon had nice things to say about Drew but also opted to vote for Clint, which put him through to the semifinals. Howie says he would have voted for Clint, too.
Next week will be the Wild Card round, where previously eliminated acts, selected by the judges, will get another chance to impress America.
