America’s Got Talent got off to a very strong start with the first two episodes of season 14 and the first two Golden Buzzer winners The audience and judges were moved to tears. The next episode, which airs June 14, features a teenage dancer whose performance will also have a powerful impact on at least one of the judges. In an exclusive clip for the next episode (see above), 18-year-old Australian Max Ostler will give a performance that deserves a standing ovation from Sofia Vergara herself. Listen!
Both Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum look quite moved, which Max Ostler delivered in his America’s Got Talent Auditioning with his dance set to James Arthur’s Falling Like The Stars. Still, Vergara is the member of the jury who wasted no time in getting up for the ovation, and the crowd behind her quickly stood up as well. Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell certainly applauded, so will the teenage dancer get the votes he needs to keep going?
Fans will have to watch the episode to find out, but it seems certain that Sofia Vergara will give him a voice to move on. The judges are always looking for something they’ve never seen before, so it should be interesting to hear her commentary for Ostler. The dancer brought both emotion and acrobatics to his dance, which is an important combination when it comes to connecting with viewers and potential homesteaders across the board.
However, Max Ostler must advance in the competition before his fate is in the hands of voters back home. He looked pretty happy when he finished dancing, and who could blame him when he had a theater full of people (including the modern family alum) up for him? It’s worth noting that the jury already promoted a fairly wide variety of performers at the audition stage, and the two Golden Summer winners had different types of performances, though 11-year-old powerhouse Madison Taylor Baez and 21-year-old saxophonist Avery Dixon performed both songs.
Find out more about Max Ostler’s story and whether or not he’s moving on from auditions in the next new episode of America’s Got Talent, airing Tuesday, June 14 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
