Hiroki Hara did not get Ne Yo’s golden buzzer last night, but still impressed with his stage illusion and (literal) surprise ending. He edged out tightrope performers and a martial arts strongman act and will be joining Jon Dorenbos and jugglers Passing Zone in the live shows.
This year on America’s Got Talent guest judges are being brought on during the judges’ cuts round and they are being given a golden buzzer pick to fast forward favorite acts on to the next round. The first of the guest judges was Ne Yo and he sent NFL player and magician Jon Dorenbos on to the next round after this “big card” trick.
Last night was the final night of auditions on America’s Got Talent for this year and Steven Brundage brought his Rubik’s Cubes and just plain blew the judges away with his magic. Congratulations Steven!
Kaden Bart Rockett and his sister Brooklyn came out and just flat out owned the AGT stage on last night’s show. iTricks would like to congratulate the Rockett siblings (whose dad, Bart Rockett performs at his own theater in Destin) and can’t wait to see them again.
What is really, really sad is the heat these children are getting on YouTube. The effect is being exposed, which is (sadly) to be expected, but worse yet the kids are being railed on for being kids. People are saying that they went through just because they are kids, anyone who purchased this trick could do it without even practicing and more. I realize that acts going on America’s Got Talent are putting themselves out there for the public to love or hate, but something about the comments about these elementary school kids really just seems sad. Don’t let any of that get you down, Bart and Brooklyn! You had a clever act, personality, great stage presence and iTricks is pulling for you.
Last night America got not one but two magic acts that went on to the next round. Both acts are also already well known. Sos and Victoria are an internationally known magic and quick change act and Jon Dorenbos is the long snapper for the Philadelphia Eagles.
We’ve featured Jon, his magic and his rather tragic story in the past but you can catch up on all of that on his official website.
Although we have to imagine the vast majority of y’all iTricksters are familiar with Sos and Victoria, America got introduced into them last night in big way. They hit the America’s Got Talent stage and passed right through to the next round with four yes votes.
