America’s Got Talent: The Champions continues with episode four, and this batch of talent is one that you do not want to miss! Between extreme roller skaters, magicians, comedians, and dangerous acts, episode four covers all talents across the board. This week, Howie had the power of the golden buzzer and he used it to make Angelica Hale the first ever 2 time Golden Buzzer winner.
DJ Arch Jr
After winning South Africa’s Got Talent, DJ Arch is on the AGT stage and he’s ready to start to show. At only six years old, he has the ability to entertain a room of thousands of people and viewers at home. No wonder he is a champion. Simon says he’s a star and loved the performance.
Darcy the magician came to make a lasting impression on the judges and that he did. After inviting Howie, a guest from the audience and Heidi on stage, he proceeded to somehow have Heidi float in mid-air for his trick. Everyone was left wondering how he did it and while his performance was talented, Simon said he felt like he lacked showmanship.
Back to the America’s Got Talent stage is runner-up Angelica Hale from Season 12. Though she didn’t win, she came back to champions for a second chance. After singing the Fight Song, Angelica had an immediate standing ovation. Howie told her that the level of competition on champions is much higher and that he wanted to do anything he could to help her win this show. This leads him to give her the golden buzzer and bringing Angelica to the finals!
After being the first comedian to ever make it as a finalist in America’s Got Talent, Tom is back to redeem himself and win the Champions title. However, his performance is cut short as Simon gives him the very first “X” of the show and distracts Tom just moments into his comedy skit. Tom doesn’t miss a beat and continues to finish his skit, although you could see the hurt on his face. He had some encouraging words from Mel and Heidi where they disagreed with Simon. Tom tells Simon, “I understand I may not be your cup of tea but I still respect the hell out of you” and off the stage he went.
This opera/pop singer had one of the most unique performances to date. After receiving a standing ovation, Howie tells him that he is the person that’s going to be remembered. Mel says that she can see his show in Vegas in a heartbeat. Simon, however, is tough on the contestants tonight and says that he felt the song choice was too obvious.
Ryan Stock & Amberlynn
This was one of those acts where you couldn’t look but had to look! After nearly killing her husband during their last performance on the America’s Got Talent with a specific trick, Ryan and Amberlynn are back to do it again for The Champions. After successfully completing the stunt, the judges commend them on their bravery and brilliant performance.
After watching how Simon tore apart Tom’s comedy skit, the pressure was on for fellow comedian, Samuel. Lucky for him, his skit struck a chord with the judges and they loved it. Simon even said that he felt an extra glow from Samuel tonight.
You could see that this next contestant made an impact in the Got Talent world because the moment he stepped out, everyone was on their feet. Paul won the very first season of Britains Got Talent and has had a hugely successful career since then, even performing for the queen twice. After receiving a standing ovation, Simon says that he is the definition of what this show was meant to be.
If there’s one story that struck a cord this episode, it was this one. After competing on America’s Got Talent on season 11, Jon went back to playing professional football and was told suddenly that he needed emergency open heart surgery and had to give up football. After finding himself back on the America’s Got Talent stage, he says that life has come full circle. After an incredible and inspiring performance, the judges say that he deserves to make it to the finals and were more than pleased with his performance.
Billy and Emily England
Talk about the perfect sibling duo! Emily and Billy have their own show at Caesars Palace where they perform five days a week. After their incredible performance, Simon says that he thinks they define the word “champion.”
After all ten acts were complete it was time to announce who the top three choices were. Billy and Emily were called first, followed by Jon Dorenbos and Paul Potts. When the results came in Paul had the highest votes and was the second act to make it to the finals for the night.
