The next act to audition on America’s Got Talent is a team of magicians called David & Leeman. They take the AGT stage and have Howie join them. They press on Howie’s head and tell him that they are taking away his ability to read. They show him cards and tell him to read aloud, and just like David & Leeman announced, Howie is unable to read the simple words. The judges love their act, and love the fact that they made Howie look like an idiot, so they all vote the magicians in.

Loved it!” Howard says she has “tremendous talent and it was magnificent audition.” Howie says, “You listen to your voice and it comes out with such passion.

I really enjoyed it, especially your facial expressions.” Howard jokes that they aren’t much younger than Heidi’s boyfriend. Mel B is sure that the girls are going to go crazy for them. Howard says he “doesn’t know if it is something he needs to see again, because they seemed too ordinary. Howie, Mel, and Heidi all vote “yes.” However, Howard votes “no.” Sean and Luke are moving on to the next round of America’s Got Talent.
A Kung Fu Master Qi Fellong takes the stage next, unfortunately he doesn’t speak English, nor does his interpreter. Nick stakes the stage and helps the master explain what he is doing. First he uses his energy to stop a clock and then he slices a string with a dollar bill. Next he tells Nick to “kick him in the nuts” and he does. Howard and Heidi vote “no,” so unfortunately Kung Fu Master won’t be returning.
The next act to audition for America’s Got Talent is a team of motocross stunt men called Real Encounter. Nick and the judges follow the men outside where they have ramps set up.

The judges also push forward a jump-roping team, a basketball stunt team, and a pogo-stick stunt team.
Up next is a group of 8 year old triplets who will be performing “card throwing.” Phoenix shocks the audience and the judges when begins slicing celery with his cards and throwing them all the way up in to the balcony. The audience immediately begins cheering “Put Them Through.” Mel says the triplets are “just adorable.” Heidi says she “really really loved it and their presentation.” Howard thinks they are “inspirational.” The judges are unanimous, and all four of them vote “yes.”
A magician tries his luck next, and has Howard come up on stage and has him draw a card, and then place it back in the deck. He then turns around and reveals that the card is in his butt. He hands Howard a rubber glove to fish it out, but Howard refuses. It’s safe to say he isn’t going through to the next round.

She tells the judges that her act is an “example of her imagination coming to life.” The judges loved her performance, and Heidi dubbed it “truly original.” Howard says, “you have figured out a way to take something that we have seen a million times and animate it.” Abigail gets teary eyed and the judges are unanimous, they all vote “yes” and she is going on to the next round of America’s Got Talent.
