America’s Got Talent Season 16 Episode 7 Recap
The seventh episode of ‘America’s Got Talent’ season 16 opened with Temple London, a UK-based father/son martial arts duo who received a standing ovation because of their agility and skill. They are heading to the next round. The next performers called Hiplet Ballerinas, a dance group from Chicago, bagged four yes votes after their empowering performance that focused on inclusivity. After a long series of red buzzers, Sarah Potenza charmed the judges with her powerful vocals. The night continued to present exceptional performances, and one of them was an act by a sibling duo Michael and Angelina Novikova. The brother participated in the show six years ago, but Howie red “buzzered” him on the live shows. However, they were delighted to receive four yes votes this time.
Other acts advancing to the next round include a Filipino acrobat called Ehrlich, a father/daughter dance duo Gene and Isabella Bersten, and trapeze artists The Owl and The Pussycat. The second standing ovation of the day went to Hello Sister, a sibling singing group that includes Gabriella, Scarlett, and Grace. They graced the stage with an original called “Middle Schoolers,” which impressed the panel, especially Simon, all of which guaranteed them a place in the next round. 62-year-old Michael Winslow from Florida was the next one to captivate the audiences with his ability to produce ten thousand sound effects through his voice. Simon immediately recognized him from ‘Police Academy’ before confirming him a spot in the next round.
As far as unusual but mind-blowing acts go, Kevin Micoud from France, a 32-year-old mentalist, amazed the judges with his unprecedented act of mind transmission as he secured four yet votes thereafter. Scarlett Business, a hand-balancing contortionist, introduced a bit of drag in the mix, which everyone adored. The last performer selected was Ray Singleton from North Carolina, who performed an original song as a tribute to his wife, a US Navy veteran and a brain cancer survivor.
