Week six of NBC”s “America’s Got Talent” included auditions from the cities of Hollywood, New Orleans, and ended in New York. A variety of acts had the judges saying “No” especially while Howie Mandel was gone for a good portion of the Hollywood auditions. Judges Heidi Klum, Howard Stern, and Mel B. rejected ridiculous acts that included plungers, stripping (not really), and a comedian. Once Howie arrived, more ridiculous continued, along with some real talented acts.
Olivia Rox – Singer (YES vote)
Rox is 14 years old. She said that her parents are an inspiration. Olivia said she got the opportunity to go on stage with her father when she was only 2 years old.
For her audition, Rox sang “As Long as You Love Me” by Justin Bieber. Her rendition included very random high notes and low notes. Mel B. said, “You have to be careful where you take it and not peek so soon. The good news is that you’re 14 and I’ve never heard anything like that before.” Heidi said, “I love it. You are beautiful and your voice is beautiful.”
Howard judged her by saying, “When I put a singer through I think about Radio City Music Hall. Most people are going to be swallowed-up by Radio City Music Hall. You’re not. Fourteen years old, I’d swear that you are twenty-five.” Howard gave her two “yes’s” one for himself and one for Howard.

Ronald Farnham – Stunt Act (NO vote)
Farnham’s talent was throwing plungers at the backs of hairy men and making them stick. He managed to get just one. Farnham has also attempted this stunt on “Guinness World Records Gone Wild” and the show’s new season called “Guinness World Records Unleashed”.
Howard reacted, “It was a disaster by phenomenal proportions.” Heidi said, “If Howie was here, he’d like it.” Howard agreed with her, then told Farnham, “We won’t be seeing you anywhere, anytime soon!” Mel B. said, “Plungers being thrown only hairy man’s backs is not up my alley.”
“One of the good things about Howie not being here is that none of the numbnooks are going through,” Howard said.

Howie arrived in time for an act called “Tummy Talk”.
Tummy Talk - (YES vote)
This act consisted of men slapping an overweight man who stood on stage with his shirt off to make a rhythmic sound. When it was over, Mel B. said, “There is something very interesting in what you do. I don’t know if I liked you slapping him so hard.” Howie asked, “What if you had someone who didn’t have as much girth?” They responded, “We can try it on Nick.”
Nick Cannon took his shirt off, and they played on his chest and stomach. Nick was tickled by their multiple slaps. When it was time to judge, Heidi asked, “Is it wrong that I liked it?” Howard was somewhat disturbed and said, “I’ve been sitting here quietly thinking about my life and where I’m going. I didn’t like it.” Howie loved the act and stated, “I laughed. I though it was gimmicky. It’s a ‘yes’”

Heidi said, “It was nerve wrecking. It was dangerous. I loved it!” Mel B. thought the act was a nice change of pace, “You guys are refreshing. I was nervous and nauseous. But it was brilliant. Well done!” she told them. Howie said, “I have seen it all. But we have never had a ice act. To do it at the level you did, blows it out of the water!”

“SensEtion” act is dance, video and projection as explained to the judges by the act. They said that they’ve been working on the act for only one year. The first time they’ve done it was on stage last night on “America’s Got Talent.”
“I see a lot of possibilities with this act. I think you guys are onto a really good idea. I could see more dance incorporated into it,” said Howie. Heidi was not impressed and told the act, “I was a little bit bored. I liked the idea of what you guys do in the dark.”
Mel B. had some encouragement, “I do see your dance potential and I was impressed. I think it was a great unique idea. I want to see more.” Howie said, “I thought it was new and original and I was thoroughly entertained.”

And, like she said, get a mansion.”
After their performance, the audience gave them a standing ovation. Heidi said to the duo “Amazing! I cant believe how you can shake those hips around. I might have to get some training from you.”
“The whole routine was great! I am kind of speechless,” said Mel B. Howie asked how long they’ve been doing this. They said since they were three years old.

I don’t want to be the one at 78 years old wondering what would have happened if I had have chased my dream.”
Rose served four years and is U.S. Marine Corps veteran. He’s also a former coal miner. Howard reacted to his performance with, “That was a damn good song. I think you voice is very strong.” Howard was also very positive and told Rose, “As a program director, I would have added your song.”
Heidi said, “I think you have a beautiful and natural sound.” Mel B. told him, “You have a great voice.” Howie said, “I really need you to be a part of this competition. You are what we are looking for. Yes!”

He responded with, “Another guy told me how to do it.” The judges and audience had to view his stunt outside. His act consisted of him placing himself inside of a silver box that looked like it was lined with tin foil on the ground. He then exploded the box. He escaped without a scratch.
After watching his stunt outside, the judges told him what they thought of it back in the studio. Howard said, “Captain Explosion Hmm. this is a tough one. In order for your act to work, we have to be included that something dangerous is happening.” Howie did not agree with Howard and said, “I think you are 100% wrong. I thought it was amazing and scarey.”
Howie asked Heidi if she was scared. She said “yes.” Howie made his point to Howard and said to Captain Explosion, “You did your job.”
Mel B. said, “the box was not frightening.” Howard voted “No.” Howie stuck-up for Captain with, “It was definitely dangerous, we knew there was explosions.” Howie voted “Yes.” Heidi who voted “no” said, “I don’t want to see you blow up” Mel B. said, “It wasn’t fun enough for me.” Howie was upset that the act did not continue with the trip to Las Vegas.
