“This is the worst act we’ve had,” rasped Simon Cowell after watching caterpillar comedian Sethward perform his metamorphosis act on the third audition episode of “America’s Got Talent.” Midway through Sethward’s act, which consisted of him bumbling around in a sleeping bag cocoon, all four judges pressed their X’s. That caused Sethward’s transformation from a caterpillar into a butterfly to be stunted, resulting in him flashing the judges. Watch the truly disturbing “AGT” audition video above.
“You have a hole in your stockings,” remarked Heidi Klum after Sethward made his early transformation.
A confused Howie Mandel noted simply, “You’re not wearing any underwear.”
“My God, that is so inappropriate,” said Mel B while covering her eyes.
As the audience booed and hissed for him to exit the stage, Sethward screamed, “But I just want to be beautiful like you!” Host Tyra Banks then came out with bug spray and the crowd cheered as she sprayed him off the stage. Unfortunately it looks as though Sethward will have to find another way to express his love of nature, because he’s been justly eliminated from Season 13 of “Americas Got Talent.”
In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty noted, “Next to try out was a comedian who arrived on stage as a caterpillar, a sleeping bag with little hands basically, and scared the (or maybe grossed out) the audience who quickly descended into a flurry of boos and groans. As he attempted to transform from a caterpillar into a butterfly on stage, Howie, Mel, Heidi and Simon all hit their NO buzzers in succession, ushering him off stage. Honestly, I was so flabbergasted at what I was watching that I didn’t even catch his name! Oof.”
