As an event planner, you may often take client feedback into account when you want to pick a performer for your event(s).
With popular AGT acts, this is not a matter of concern since you can be sure they have been validated not by hundreds of people, but by millions.
So we selected 3 former AGT contestants with the intention of showcasing that special ‘something’ which made their acts true crowd pleasers.
There are all sorts of standup comedians on AGT, but not all of them get to the very last moments of a season.
Taylor Williamson is one who did, and did it in great style, although he did not use over-the-top props. Except maybe his wit and presence.
In short, what distinguishes his act as special is the self-deprecating, endearing and disarmingly honest character he displays. Plus, he pulls out hilarious facial expressions which are not out of place or forced in the least.
Throughout his whole America’s Got Talent journey, Taylor proves he knows how to work with any material he has at hand. We are mainly referring to the way he involves the judges in his performances. You can see a snippet here:
The slightly awkward on-stage demeanor only adds to his magnetic charm. It is also one of the ingredients which led to Taylor’s rise to the runner-up position of AGT season 8.
“It is brilliant” or “With you, I never want to fast-forward” are the words judges complimented him with. However, they could be the words of your event guests.
To reach a semifinal, AGT acts have to be impactful. Moreover, also, to bring something spectators have not seen before.
Season 12 saw illusionist Eric Jones put in masterful sleight-of-hand presentations, one after another, which naturally catapulted him to the final stages of the show.
Besides excelling in close-up magic, Eric packages his performance by presenting a casual on-stage presence, soothing voice, fast-paced sequences and constant interaction with the judges.
The AGT quarterfinalist impressed the viewers with his unparalleled showmanship.
One of his merits is bringing the art of juggling from the confined space of the circus to a global audience. He did this from the position of a Two-Time Gold Medalist and World Champion in juggling, so the secret to his popularity on America’s Got Talent is none other than hard work, dedication and ingenuity.
As insider info, it also helps that Charles has been performing for 16 years weekly juggling shows.
However, technical mastery aside, Charles is one of those AGT acts which enrich their craft with extra elements like surprising props (like musical instruments), many new concepts or tons of comedy as the icing on the cake.
