Mike E. Winfield impressed and made everyone laugh with his witty and energetic jokes. He specifically caught the eye of judge Sofia Vergara. Veronica & Her Incredible Friends delivered their magnificent performance of making their pets do some very cool stuff.
The performance before the pets was quite distinct. Celia Munoz performed a whole skit while singing. This included waking up, brushing her teeth, and also attending to a funny phone call.
Ben Lapidus, who sang a song about Parmesan cheese was qualified single-handedly through the power of the audience. The audience loved his song about cheese so much that they influenced the judges to take after them and say yes to him.
Lee Collinson sang a song and impressed the judges. The Pack Drumline played a drumming-dance hybrid show. This performance earned the season’s first standing ovation from the judges.
The judges this season are Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Terry Crews. The judges are all well-known names who have acted, modeled, or judged in shows in the past. Watch America’s Got Talent season 17 to catch more of the show.
