The end of 2019’s America’s Got Talent auditions ended on July 9th. Now we are well into the Judge’s Cut, but no matter what the judges say, we all have our favorites. However, there are a few auditions that stole the hearts of the entire country. Here we have ten of the most undeniably great auditions of 2019.
Singing is probably the most common audition that we see on America’s Got Talent. Because of this, the bar is rather high. That said, Chris Kläfford gave us a stellar performance of John Lennon’s “Imagine” when he auditioned for the judges. The Swedish singer takes the spot for the most watched audition of 2019. We wouldn’t be surprised if he takes the entire competition.
Robert Finley is no stranger to the stage. In fact, the senior citizen has been a star for decades. But it wasn’t until 2016 that he hit the big stage. The man is now legally blind and has two full albums available. But he’s hoping that his soul will give him the big win with America’s Got Talent.
Here we have Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer. Now, that phrase alone earns him a spot in the finals, both literally and figuratively. If there was an audition to make you cry, it comes from this heartfelt violinist of 11-years-old cancer survivor. His rendition of “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson won the hearts of all four judges.
Another emotional audition came from blind, autistic musician Kodi Lee. This boy is not only incredibly sweet, but talented as well. While speaking, you can tell Young Kodi struggles to get out a single sentence. But when he started singing “A Song for You” every jaw in the room dropped. Not one hiccup was heard through his voice. A flawless performance with an amazing tone. Oh yeah, and he took Gabrielle Union’s Golden Buzzer!
To be fair, Duo MaintenanT are former members of Cirque du Soleil. On top of that, Shenea (the female of the duo) was an acrobatic gymnast who represented the United States of America at the 2001 World Games, the 2002 World Championships and the 2004 World Championships in the Mixed Pair event. While they may be ahead of the game, we can still appreciate just how breathtaking this hand-balancing act is.
This magician sets himself apart from the rest by introducing magic that we’ve never seen before. Most consider him the most promising magician to audition this year. Like many others, Eric is one step ahead of us. In 2018, he won the Close Up Magic Grand Prix from the FISM (International Federation of Magic Societies) Magic World Championships in South Korea. And he also took first place in the third season of Asia’s Got Talent. Will he do the same on this season of AGT?
Lukas & Falco
It’s not often that we see an act that is both heartwarming as well as lighthearted. But Lukas & Falco take the cake on both scales. This canine-human duo is one of the best we’ve seen. While Falco is nine-years-old, he has the agility of a two-year-old. The bond these two share is sweet, but do not underestimate their talent.
Edson & Leon
While most hand balancing acts are composed of two or more young, fit individuals, Edson & Leon prove that age is just a number. The younger of the two is 54 and the older 84! Just imagine competing with 21-year-olds at such an age. No doubt these two are fierce competition.
This dance group from Mumbai is not only talented but are willing to take risks in order to go big…or go home. The group was so tight that guest judge Dwayne Wade (Gabrielle Union’s husband) gave them the Golden Buzzer, sending them to the finals.
Now this one had every gamer and ‘90s kid on their feet. During their audition, this “dance group” gave us a Mortal Kombat/Street Fighter dance. The dance style is very similar to Kenichi Ebina who won AGT in 2013. Whether or not Adem Show can do the same is still up in the air. But there is one thing we do know: they gave us a killer audition.
