There may not be an audience to boo them, but the weird acts just keep coming on AGT this season. On Tuesday night, one silly act in particular had judge Simon Cowell giggling uncontrollably.
They weren’t the only act to get the red buzzer in the latest episode. Most of the night’s auditions were impressive, but it’s always fun to watch a few kooky ones here and there. Check them out below.
Simon Cowell Laughs At ‘AGT’ Magic Act
A magician couple named Anthem and Aria put on a lovey-dovey routine during Tuesday night’s AGT episode. They sang the love song “Till There Was You” to each other while making roses and hearts appear. Simon buzzed the act before they even started doing tricks.
Howie Mandel and Sofia Vergara ended up buzzing them, too. “I need more magic,” guest judge Eric Stonestreet told them. “I didn’t really know what was happening,” Sofia added.
“It was sweet. It was very corny,” Simon told them. Then he started giggling and couldn’t compose himself before continuing. As Howie pointed out, “I always say, if you can make one person laugh …”
Needless to say, Anthem and Aria didn’t make it through to the next round, receiving four “no” votes from the judges. During the voting, Simon burst into laughter once again.
Were There Stripper Acrobats On ‘AGT’?
Another strange audition from Tuesday night’s AGT involved two guys with brooms who ended up performing gymnastics moves while taking their clothes off. They stood on each other’s shoulders, balanced the brooms on their heads, and did splits.
When they ripped their pants off, they were both revealed to be wearing rainbow-striped shorts. Simon and Sofia both buzzed the act, and the judges laughed when the guys declared “Ta-da!” at the end of their routine.
The act received four “no” votes from the judges, and Eric Stonestreet was left to wonder, “What happened?” We’re asking ourselves the same thing.
