AceShowbiz - "America's Got Talent: The Champions" aired its Week 5 on Monday, February 4. In the episode, two more acts were sent to the finals. One would be automatically advancing with host Terry Crews' Golden Buzzer, while the rest would be battling to win the votes by a panel of "superfans."
First up was Attraction, a shadow dance group who won "Britain's Got Talent" in 2013. The group brought a very sentimental performance which earned praise from Howie Mandel. "You make my heart burst," he said. Meanwhile, Melanie Brown a.k.a. Mel B said that their act was "brilliant on every single level."
Opera singer Jackie Evancho, who was the runner-up on "America's Got Talent" in 2010, returned to the stage following a big change in her life. That night, she opted to sing "Music of the Night" from "Phantom of the Opera". Mel B was beyond amazed by her performance, saying, "You have the voice of an angel.. stunningly beautiful."
The next performer was mentalist Colin Cloud. The "America's Got Talent" season 12 semifinalist did a performance using what he called as "Colin Cloud masks" which allowed him to read mind of the person wearing it. During his performance, he guessed a number and letter that Howie was thinking of. Later, he guessed what went on one audience member's mind which was former judge David Hasselhoff. Much to everyone's surprise, David showed up in the audience. Simon Cowell thought he redeemed himself.
Comedian Lost Voice Guy, the winner of season 12 of "Britain's Got Talent", later took the stage. Lee Ridley, who has cerebral palsy, talked about his dream to be a standup comedian and performing in America. Simon loved his performance, claiming that he was inspiring many people. Meanwhile, Heidi Klum said that he was teaching us all something.
Singer Sal Valentinetti was also among those who made a return in that episode. Hoping for a spot in the finals, he belted out Bobby Darin's "Mack the Knife". Mel exclaimed, "LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT." As for Simon, he admitted that he was "slightly star-struck... that was tremendous."
Up next was Tokio Myers. The pianist, who came out as the winner of "Britain's Got Talent" in 2017, offered an epic act that was fully multimedia. "I see you as the next Quincy Jones," raved Howie. "You do it all... it was truly amazing to watch," Heidi added.
Sand Artist Kseniya Simonova from "Ukraine's Got Talent" then performed. She told the story of an artist who grew up and forgot his parents. "It was fantastic," Simon said of the emotional performance. Terry was also equally impressed as he said, "You are the champion," He then moved the judges and hit his Golden Buzzer.
Cosentino, an escape artist from "Australia's Got Talent" 2011, meanwhile, was putting out a dangerous and fiery act that included him being restrained using a lock pick. He managed to unlock his leg brace before the whole thing dramatically exploded. "Very entertaining," Simon commented. "One of the best danger acts I've ever seen... you have a real shot after that."
Sons of Serendip later performed "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane. The musical group proved that they were still able to create fresh performances after competing in season 9 of "America's Got Talent". "It's so nice to have you guys back... it's magic," Heidi said. Mel then called their performance "dreamy" and "angelic."
Rounding the night was magician Shin Lim, who won the last season of "America's Got Season". He did some fancy card flipping before they disappeared into thin air. At the end of his performance, the cards spelled out "Champions" and Terry was dumbfounded when he found cards inside his pocket. The judges all loved it with Howie calling it "perfection."
Attraction, Shin Lim and Sons of Serendip were announced to be among the Top 3. But only one act who would be joining Kseniya in the finals and it was Shin Lim. Congratulations!
