A successful run on America’s Got Talent is a once-in-a-lifetime chance that many performers dream of. It takes quite a special kind of performance to reach this prestigious position.
The performers that the judges pick aren’t just incredible at what they do, but they also have that special something that makes them worthy of the big leagues.
To see precisely what it takes to make it far into the competition, we’ll showcase 4 of our top artists that have made it to AGT’s final stages.
Oz Pearlman is one of the USA’s busiest and most in-demand magicians. He’s a highly requested performer for many Fortune 500 companies, celebrities, and politicians.
Oz’s career as a magician was a means of escapism. He initially worked on Wall Street before picking up magic as a hobby. At first, it began as a passion project, and later it developed into a worthwhile and lucrative profession.
His biggest break came in 2015 when he auditioned for America’s Got Talent. Oz wanted to showcase his skills to the world like any other performer. Little did he know that the audience would highly appreciate his performance so much so that it carried him into the later stages of the competition.
After his successful stint on AGT, Oz’s career took off, allowing him to hone his skills. Now, he dazzles the mind of audiences with intricate mentalism with top-notch, TV-like production value.
Drew Lynch is an Indianapolis native with high hopes of becoming an actor. However, his plans were tarnished after an accident left him with severe stuttering. This condition did not bring Drew down, and he decided to push forward as a stand-up comedian.
Drew enjoyed lukewarm success in stand-up, which gave him the confidence to push for the more significant scene. As a result, he auditioned for America’s Got Talent to try his luck at performing for a large audience. His charisma, life story, and general likeability formed a complete package that made the judges and the audience appreciate Drew.
However, his strong point was his sharp sense of humor. Drew isn’t ashamed of his impairment; instead, he uses it as the basis of his jokes – and his spectators are floored by what gnarly things he has to say.
The next on our list of top artists from AGT is The Passing Zone. They are a daring duo composed of Jon Wee and Owen Morse. Together they form a longstanding entertainment partnership, having been in the business for almost 3 decades.
Their act endured because of their commitment to a straightforward concept – teamwork.
Together they pull off dangerous acts which involve throwing sickles at a target, and juggling with torches, knives, and even chainsaws.
At some point, the duo decided to take their act to greater heights and made it to AGT’s stage, where they shocked audiences with their juggling.
The judges were impressed with their performance. Because of the positive reactions garnered, they had a smooth sail throughout the competition – reaching the later stages with praise and standing ovations. And the audiences were on the edge of their seats.
Sofie Dossi is a contortionist and hand-balancer. She wows audiences with her performances and incredible acts of athleticism. She is living proof that hard work pays off since she is self-taught.
Sofie’s big break came after she participated in the 11th season of AGT. During her auditions, she showcased a contortionist act that pushed her body to the limits and executed it flawlessly. This impressed the judges who voted for her to advance.
Her highlight moment came during the Judge Cuts round, where she performed an even more impressive act with some theatrics. The act involved her shooting an arrow from a bow with her feet while standing on her hands.
This blew the judges away and even earned her a well-deserved Golden Buzzer.
