'America's Got Talent' Recap: Blind Singer Earns Simon Cowell's Golden Buzzer

In the new episode, judges Sofia Vergara, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandell meet several stunning acts, including Ramadhani Brothers who offer something that's never been seen in America.

AceShowbiz - "America's Got Talent" returned for its second week on Tuesday, June 6. Kicking off the episode was 10-year-old dancer Lambros Garcia, who stunned the judges, Sofia Vergara, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel, with his energetic dancer.

Following his performance, Lambros got emotional while revealing that he was bullied by his peers. "You dance with such joy, such precision," Howie praised him. Sofia later told Lambros that the haters "bully you because they envy you." He got three yes from the judges.

Singing group Sainted from Charlotte, North Carolina, performed next. Heidi and Sofia could be seen totally loving their performance. "It's young, it's exciting, it's not what you think choir is," Howie raved. Sofia even said the group is one of her "favorites" so far.

Up next were The Ramadhani Brothers, who performed their amazing head-to-head balancing. They impressed everyone as one of them made it to the top of the ladder and down with no net while balancing his brother on his head.

"I've never seen anything so amazing," host Terry Crews noted. Simon dubbed it "unbelievable," while Howie declared, "That is the scariest, most dangerous act I have ever seen on America's Got Talent." The Ramadhani Brothers moved to the next round.

Dance group Avantgardey then took the stage to showcase their routine. "You are so beyond in sync," Heidi told the group, who came from Japan. "This was beyond what I expected. It was something weird that we've never seen," Sofia added. Avantgardey was sent to the next round.

The next act was Putri Ariani from Indonesia. The 17-year-old singer, who is blind, shared that her dream is to win a Grammy Award and go to Julliard. She amazed everyone with a show-stopping performance of her original song "Loneliness". Simon wanted to hear more as he asked Putri to sing a second song and she chose Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word".

Putri received a standing ovation from everyone in the room. Sofia called her "an angel," while Howie dubbed her "superstar." Simon, meanwhile, said he was "blown away" by Putri's "amazing, distinctive voice" and decided to give her his Golden Buzzer this season.

Following it up was magician Mandy Moden, who got cheeky with Heidi during her performance. "You're so funny, and I didn't expect to have so much fun," Simon commented. Howie claimed that he's already a "huge fan" and couldn't wait to see her show in Vegas. Mandy moved to the next round.

Later, 6-year-old Zoe Erianna hit the stage to sing Lady GaGa's "Born This Way". The judges loved her and she was sent to the next round. As for Muhamed Kahrimanovic, he failed to impress the judges while trying to break his own Guinness world record for the most coconuts broken in one minute.

Country singer Mitch Rossell channeled his emotion while performing a beautiful and tender original song. Simon said, "I loved every part of that… it was sincere. I really, really think people are going to connect with you." Mitch stayed on the competition.

Ray World and his 85-year-old mom rounded out the night. In a surprising twist, Ray lit himself on fire before he started throwing fiery knives near his own mom. There were a couple of explosions and more knife-throwing.

Howie pressed his red X. However, the other judges loved the performance. "I loved this act. How could you not?" Simon said, adding that they prove that you're "never too old to chase your dreams."
