On America’s Got Talent, Bello Nock, a comic daredevil who did not make it past the “Judge Cuts,” was given a second chance at this week’s first live show when Simon Cowell admitted that he had made a mistake eliminating him.
Cowell shared with the AGT audience, “I basically said this guy deserves another chance based on what he did last time. God only knows what he is going to do this time, but we would like to see him on the live show.” Host Tyra Banks then stated, “I love that Simon says he makes mistakes and corrects his mistakes publicly.” Cowell then jokingly responded, “Ya, but, unlike the others I like to give people a second chance.”
It was clear that Cowell wanted to take credit for whatever was going to happen next, because everyone knew it was going to be a great performance as soon as they heard what it would be. Nock, trying to figure out how to up the ante after human-cannonballing himself over a helicopter, chose the “Wheel of Death” as his death-defying stunt.
Luckily, Nock survived, while Heidi Klum barely survived her nervousness. “Bello, you just freaked me out,” she exclaimed. “It was so scary!” As for Cowell, he was glad he gave the daredevil a second chance and complimented him, in his own Simon Cowell way. “It was, honestly, incredible,” he said. “My hat is off to you. I salute you. I didn’t like you when I first met you, but I think you deserved your place here. Incredible.”
