The AGT quarterfinals returned for the second week on Tuesday night, with another episode of live performances. Simon Cowell was once again absent as he recovers from back surgery, so SNL star Kenan Thompson filled in on the judges’ panel.

Several of the night’s performances received mixed reviews from the judges, but one act they couldn’t look away from was Jonathan Goodwin. The daredevil set himself on fire in a dangerous act that had everyone on the edge of their seats.

Kelvin Dukes

This 14-year-old singer performed “Valerie” on a New York City street set in Universal Studios, showing off some dance moves to go along with it. Howie Mandel told Kelvin he has “a really good career ahead of you.”

The Shape

These dancers had to miss out on prom and graduation due to the pandemic. They auditioned for this season online and have practiced virtually. They performed in the quarterfinals wearing face masks. Sofia Vergara loved their music choice and praised them for working hard. Howie, however, wasn’t as impressed.

Kameron Ross

This singer got emotional telling the story of coming out to his mother. He went on to sing “Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga. Howie said he wasn’t sure about Kameron’s song choice, while Heidi Klum said it wasn’t her favorite rendition she’s heard.

Bad Salsa

This dance duo performed straight from India on a grand stage set, showing off some amazing acrobatic moves. “Is this a dance act or a danger act?” Heidi asked. Kenan said they “blew the roof off,” and Sofia said they were “spectacular.”

Vincent Marcus

Vincent impersonated various rappers in a performance of nursery rhymes. Heidi said she wasn’t sure if all of his voices were “spot-on.” Sofia said this performance was better than the first one, but Howie disagreed, saying he was “lost” without being told who he was impersonating.

This 9-year-old dog trainer and her pups showed off a dynamic routine involving several obstacles. Heidi said it was so sweet she got a cavity from the act, while Sofia said Alexis is “inspiring” for other kids.

BONAVEGA

This performer says his rock ‘n’ roll persona wasn’t accepted growing up, but now he’s embracing it. He delivered a flashy performance of “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd, featuring electric guitar. Heidi called him a “rock god.” Howie called him “the king of confusion.”

Spyros Bros

This pair performed their amazing diabolo moves outside in Universal Studios park. Sofia praised their “joy” and “enthusiasm.” Heidi said she likes how they use the space they’re in. Howie said they deserve to be one of the five acts to move on.

Jonathan Goodwin

This danger performer showed off an act called “Trial by Fire,” which he said could be “fatal.” He was set on fire while trying to free himself from handcuffs, as the judges panicked. Jonathan ended up being okay, and the judges called him “insane.” As Sofia said, “I am so grateful that I am not your mother.”

Voices Of Our City Choir

This choir of homeless people from San Diego earned Terry Crews’ Golden Buzzer in their audition. Tonight, they performed an emotional rendition of “Stand By Me.” Kenan said it was “incredible,” and Heidi encouraged America to vote for them.
