The judges are ready, they are waiting for vanity to be pulled out on stage. Shockingly, there is a girl who comes out of one of the side drawers. The girl is a contortionist, and it is really creepy, almost she is made of rubber. The judges all have looks of shock and awe on their faces. She ends off her performance by bending over backward and shooting an arrow through a balloon. Emerald is 13 years old from San Diego.
Judges Comments: Heidi: “I think you are an incredible young lady, I can’t even touch my toes. What an amazing gift you have.” Sofia: “You have to have something special in your body to be able to do that. I thought it was fantastic.

I think other people are actually doing it much better.” Howie: “I think you have to give them credit for harmony. But, I don’t think you would have a good shot on this show, so for me it’s a no.” Heidi: “Its going to be a no for me as well, sorry.” Sofia: “I have to say no.”

Amanda LaCount lives in Los Angeles, she is going to dance. She is with her mom and says she gave up everything so she can move there. She started dancing since she was two years old and can’t imagine doing anything else. She has always been a bigger girl, and once was thrown off a team for her body type. She believes it is her time to shine. She says she represents the people who feel they are not heard or seen. Heidi hits the red buzzer.
Judges Comments: Sofia: “Amanda you gave it all. Your face, you were so happy. I couldn’t take my eyes off you.” Howie: “I think you are wonderful, and you are a wonderful person, and you can move, and you are athletic. You inspire people who don’t maybe fit the mold, but I don’t know if I would go see a whole show of you doing that. I don’t know if it is spectacular enough for this stage.” Heidi: “I also think you are fantastic and a great dancer. Your vibe, your spirit, your energy definitely got me bumping in my seat, but I don’t think it is a million-dollar act.” Simon: “I am going to be honest with you, for me, I loved every moment of your audition. Your joy and enthusiasm are contagious. You are memorable. I am going to remember you and I would like to see where you could progress. I will kick this off with a definite yes.”

You are like this little caterpillar, there is a cacoon, then you turn into a butterfly. I think you are going to be happy with the results.” Sofia: “I thought it was breathtaking, surreal, you look so delicate and tiny and it looked like you were possessed.” Simon: “There is a very interesting thing happening in the music industry right now where people your age, it’s kind of your time.
