AceShowbiz - "America's Got Talent" season 14 returned with a new episode on Tuesday, June 18. The first act to hit the stage that night was rat extraordinaire Melissa Arleth, who brought her rat Hanta with her. All the judges, Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union and Howie Mandel, loved it and they sent her to the next round.
The next contestant was 12-year-old Ansley Burns. She took the stage to sing Aretha Franklin's "Think", but the backing track was too loud that people could barely hear her voice. Simon stopped the performance mid-way and asked her to get rid of the backing track and sang it a capella. She totally killed it and Ansley moved to the next round.
Next up was a magician named Sos. Julianne enjoyed his performance, calling it a "full-blown spectacle show." Meanwhile, Simon said that it was "quite amazing." Sos was sent through.
Guitarist Marcin Patrzalk followed it up with an epic performance. Gabrielle told him that his talent was "absolutely out of this worlds." Another performer who got rave reviews from the judges was karaoke singer Andy Rowell. Instead of doing karaoke, he didn't do anything. However, the judges loved the "stupid act" and decided to send Andy to the next round.
Dance group Adem Show blew everyone's mind with their performance which was a mixture of a street fight with a little "Mortal Kombat". The troupe advanced to the next round. Later Forces of Service took the stage to sing a gorgeous and unique rendition of Katy Perry's "Rise". "This is what we need right now, thank you," Simon gushed. Unsurprisingly, Forces of Service went to the next round.
Dominquez Poodles brought fun to the stage as he performed some cool tricks with their pups. The judges loved it and gave them yes. Meanwhile, French vocal group Berywam earned a standing ovation for their electric peformance.
Concluding the show was Detroit Youth Choir who sang a powerful rendition of "Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. "This was your moment," said Howie of the group who rapped and danced in addition to singing.
Host Terry Crews was especially impressed by the performance. "Every young man and woman on this stage represents me and where I came from," he said, before pressing his Golden Buzzer for the group. With that, they headed straight to the live shows!
