The 11 weirdest auditions for America’s Got Talent

America’s Got Talent has brought us some amazing auditions over the years with super skilled artists. And some of these skills were completely foreign. But we all love them the same! Below, see 11 of our seriously weird favourites AGT Auditions.

1. Sethward (Season 13)

Sethward’s comedic work may have been tested on AGT a few times, but his debut in Season 13 seemed to shock the judges the most. Not only did he roll on the floor in a caterpillar costume, confusing audience members, but he got four whistles after turning his costume into a butterfly while making annoying noises.

Sethward is back to return for Seasons 14, 16, and 17, and will appear in AGT: All-Stars.

2. Ben Lapidus – The Song of Parmesan (Season 17)

This quiz was unique, as it made three judges change their minds after originally giving a contestant Xs. While comedy songwriter Ben Lapidus originally left the judges scratching their heads about his cheesy love song, the audience enjoyed every moment.

3. Mr. Pants (Season 17)

Mr. Pants has the audience in stitches with his hilarious experiment AGT 2022

Comedy schtick Mr. Pants for the seventeenth season is pun attire after pun game while wearing an elaborate pantsuit. He went on to advance to the semifinals, and later returned during the Season 17 finale to serve an epic roast to judge Simon Cowell.

4. Brett Loudermilk – Sword Swallower (Season 15)

This act of bravery left fans on the edge of their seat. Loudermilk swallowed an arrangement of terrifying swords on stage, telling the judges to pull them off, much to Sofia Vergara’s dismay.

5. Metaphysics (Season 17)

This weird and wonderful work shocked America with its hyper-realistic and innovative deepfakes. The act called Metaphysic has turned Cowell’s role on its head by using the art of illusion to make him sing on stage. More specifically, they used their technology to transform singer Daniel Emmett’s face into an exact replica of Cowell’s.

6. Yumbo Dump (Season 13)

The physicist comedian Yumbo Dump kept things simple, albeit amusing by using their bodies and props to make realistic everyday sounds. They received an X from Gabrielle Union during their audition, but eventually made it to the quarter-finals.

Yumbo Dump will reprise his role in AGT: All-Stars

7. Siegfried and Joy (Season 17)

Siegfried and Joy’s Magic Law Makes Judges Howl with Laughter | AGT 2022

Comedy, magic, or both? Siegfried and Joy gave us the best of both worlds with their wacky tricks. Although their magic act was (intentionally) lacking in certain aspects, they at least had a self-awareness to laugh at.

8. Piff the Magic Dragon (Season 10)

Another magic comic act, the sarcastic and aloof character Piif The Magic Dragon is what really sold audiences. He didn’t seem to care much about impressing the judges, and he clearly wanted to do his magic tricks his own way.

9. Casper the Singing Dog (Season 16)

Singer Bam discovers a secret talent in Chihuahua Casper one night. During their performance of “All By Myself,” the puppy howled excitedly during the chorus, completely off-guard, leaving the audience and judges laughing to themselves.

10. Les Beaux Feres (Season 16)

The French-Canadian circus performers were a surprise to the judges during their audition for Season 16. They performed an elaborate routine with a pair of white towels, jumping on stage in sync. They did their job meticulously just enough to keep things covered – at least for the public. “I saw it all!” Host Terry Crews winced.

11. Blade 2 Blade (Season 17)

This audition was so intense and intimidating that it left Simon Cowell wide-eyed. The Blade 2 Blade knife-throwing duo described their act as dangerous, and began throwing sharp objects at each other in an elaborate routine. Even with their eyes blindfolded, they managed to remain unscathed, but they still left the crowd feeling intimidated. “Don’t try this at home,” Cruz commented. The judges then praised the frightening adrenaline rush the act had given them.
