COMPETITION show America’s Got Talent (AGT) returns tonight for another Season 17 episode full of incredible acts – with one scream-worthy performance.
Previews for AGT’s third episode reveal the shocking moment where a group called Urbancrew makes judges Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara gasp and scream.
Members of the breakdancing and acrobatic group from the Philippines are shown flying through the air with gravity-defying flips in the clip.
In another sneak peek at tonight’s episode, ventriloquist Jack Williams seems to impress the judges by throwing his voice.
Last week, judge Howie Mandel used his Golden Buzzer to send Madison “Maddie” Taylor Baez directly to the live show, and actor Drake Milligan took to the stage at one point as well.
Some fans were not thrilled with either of them showing up in the competition series, saying that the decision was “unfair” since they are both professional actors who have sung in music projects.
