Osbourne booed Mandel. Stern gave his opinion, “Where you run into trouble and had I advised you, you need to single-out one guy. You need to do something completely different. People will fast-forward through that because they will get bored”.
Fan favorite Andrew De Leon returns to AGT to take a shot at the semifinals. Mandel’s choice, “You were probably the biggest surprise of the season so far because of your look and your style.
