Think back to all of the reality talent competition shows that we have seen Simon Cowell on. Have you ever seen him laugh to the point where he almost cries? On season 15 of America’s Got Talent, Cowell thought one act was so hilarious he just had to join them up on stage to get the full experience. Watch this hysterical performance below.
Simon Cowell Thought Brett Loudermilk’s Act Was Hilarious
Stepping onto the stage with his bright pink hair and sarcasm, Brett Loudermilk really had the judges intrigued from the beginning. We seriously didn’t know if he was a singing act or something else, but sword swallowing was not what we expected. If not for the preview that ‘AGT’ released early, this act would have left a lot of burning questions. Loudermilk brought judge Sofia Vergara on stage and instructed her to pull a sword out of his mouth. She was definitely spooked when she saw the sword go into his mouth and even more shook when she tried to pull it out. This forced Loudermilk to do the trick three separate times before Vergara successfully pulled the sword out of his mouth. When she rejoined the panel, Cowell was laughing maniacally.
Cowell went on to denounce how “atrocious” Vergara was at trying to pull the sword out of Louudermilk’s mouth. “When you touch it, it feels like it’s stuck in there and I was going to hurt him,” she said. And this is the moment that sent Cowell into a pool of laughter. He clasped his hand over his mouth and kicked his head back as he found Vergara’s response absolutely hilarious. It truly was a side of Cowell that we have never seen before.
Loudermilk Delivered More Hilarious Moments Bringing All Three Judges On Stage
When Howie Mandel asked, “Is that it?” Loudermilk was quick to say that there was more of his act that he wanted to show. Vergara had the spotlight for a while after her funny on stage moment, but it was time for him to really show off his talent. “She f*cked it up,” he said pointing to Vergara which Cowell began laughing at hysterically. It was really a moment where we could see that he was enjoying himself and his laughter was contagious. Cowell asked Loudermilk if he would like Vergara to get back on stage and he responded “absolutely not” and you guessed it, Cowell was laughing to the point of tears. Meanwhile, Mandel was mortified by the whole thing but that’s how he is about a lot of acts on America’s Got Talent.
But in the next trick, Loudermilk convinced all three judges to join him on stage to each pull a sword out of his mouth. It was the first time he has ever had three swords in his mouth and let three people pull them out individually. Cowell was a bit confused about which sword he was supposed to pull out but in the end, the trick went off without a hitch and the judges loved how thrilling the act was. Loudermilk got three yes’s, as Heidi Klum was absent from the taping after feeling under the weather.
It was super refreshing to see that Simon Cowell’s funny bone was certainly tickled by this performance. Were you in a fit of laughter watching this act on America’s Got Talent too?
