When thinking about the most memorable auditions from Season 14 of AGT, most of us probably think of the talent that got far in the competition. Kodi Lee, V. Unbeatable, and Benicio Bryant probably come to mind.
However, this season also featured some auditions which were memorable for their weirdness. In some cases, they even earned buzzers from all four of the judges. The AGT YouTube account released a compilation of some of these auditions. Which one made it through without a buzzer?
Weird ‘AGT’ Auditions That Got Buzzed
The compilation starts off with an audition from Death himself. In this case, he’s a comedian in a black cloak and white face makeup, who tells really corny jokes. “Anyone who says you can’t cheat death hasn’t met my ex-girlfriend,” he says. Simon Cowell is the first to hit his buzzer, with the other three judges following soon after.
Then, of course, there’s Sethward, who’s auditioned for the show in the past. This time, he came out dressed as a giraffe. Sethward received four buzzers, but that didn’t stop him from coming back as a walrus later. He managed to get “yes” votes from Howie and Simon, but not from Julianne and Gabrielle.
Last but not least, there’s Ra’ed, a flashy singer who performed an original song called “Celebration.” He didn’t impress the judges, all of whom hit the buzzer. “We were rooting for you!” Gabrielle declared.
Melissa Arleth And Her Rat Escape The Buzzer
There’s one wonderfully weird act in AGT‘s compilation that didn’t get the buzzer from the judges. Melissa Arleth and her trained rat Hanta performed a routine that had the judges and audience mesmerized. Hanta ran across an obstacle course, and at one point she scurried across Melissa’s spread legs, making Simon and Gabrielle cringe.
Not only did none of the judges hit the buzzer, but all four of them voted “yes” to send Melissa and Hanta to the next round during the AGT auditions. Howie called it “incredibly unique” and “incredibly entertaining.”
Melissa was eliminated in the Judge Cuts, but her audition goes to show that you can be unusual and still be taken seriously by the judges.
