'America's Got Talent' – Week 12 – Night 1
We know that during the last two weeks, you've been glued to the Olympics, watching amazingly talented athletes use their finely tuned bodies to honor their home countries. So what can "America's Got Talent" do to top the London Games? Three words: extreme parrot tricks. Yes, last night was the You Tube show, where 12 hopeful people who've only practiced in front of the bathroom mirror got their shot at entering the competition. It was also the first we've seen of Sharon Osbourne since she announced she'd be leaving "AGT" in protest over her son's reality show dispute, but if anyone expected fireworks or an outburst, Sharon was about as mild as the YouTube talent. Though only a couple of this week's acts have a chance to make it through the next rounds, let's take a look at the most noteworthy.
Most Surprising: schooled by an academy of villains
The YouTube show had many lowlights, but Academy of Villains closed the show with enough talent to fill the entire auditorium. Their moves were tight, their act inventive, and these villains became the heroes of the night.
A Bird Named Kitten
We promised you extreme parrot tricks, and we won't disappoint. Clint Carvalho is an accomplished bird trainer, and though his act looks deceptively simple, it leaves no doubt about his skill. If Clint makes it through to the next round, we're curious to see what his charges will do next. Parrots can't juggle, can they?
