What appeared as a rather dull episode of AMERICAS GOT TALENT on Monday night ended on a high note with an artist’s tribute to Mick Jagger.
David Garibaldi and His CMYKs, an art group from Sacramento, CA, that fuses painting, music, and dance all into one routine, closed the first live performance show of the season, composing a portrait of The Rolling Stones’ notable lead vocalist while performing to the band’s hit song “Paint It, Black.”
AGT’s newest judge Howard Stern, who previously stated that these performers can be a serious contender this year, stood alongside his fellow cohorts Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel afterwards and gave a round of applause for the act, the only one to receive a standing ovation from all three judges.
But in the post-performance commentary, Mandel took the time to remind everyone that the only way these artists will make it to the next round is if America votes for them, along with any other favorites from the night.
The following acts also stood out on Monday night and should likely also advance on Tuesday:
Shanice & Maurice Hayes
This father/daughter vocal duo stole the hearts of America with their rendition of “You’ve Got A Friend” during their audition in St. Louis. But going into the live shows, Mandel was concerned that the Shanice’s voice is too strong for her father to keep pace. Watch as Maurice proves the AGT judge absolutely wrong.
Edon: This 14-year-old singer/pianist is one of those acts that did not receive an overwhelming amount of attention from the show’s producers before Monday’s live episode. But he showed everybody with his cover of David Guetta’s “Titanium” why he deserved a spot in the Top 48.
The Scott Brothers: Before the performance, Stern referred to this act as “unique, but tiresome” to watch at a certain point. But this cartoonish-like dance duo found a way to completely captivate the attention of the first-year judge, who said after the performance that they “hit a home run.”
