The Savitsky Cats returned to the “America’s Got Talent” stage during the Quarterfinals 2 episode, but all did not go as planned. While “AGT” judge Heidi Klum raved that the cat act was “purr-fect,” the other judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel — were less than enthusiastic about the “Keeping Up with the Kats” theme for the live show performance. Do YOU think Savitsky Cats will advance to the Semifinals? Watch the “Americas Got Talent” performance video above and read the judges’ comments below.
Heidi: “I mean, you got to be kitten-y. This could have been a cat-astrophe. Wait for it: it was purr-fect. I had to, I’m sorry!”
Howie: “Well, here’s the thing. I think it’s great. I think it’s amazing. You see this usually done with dogs and we’re seeing things that have never been done with cats. But to me it seems somewhat similar. I don’t know that it’s up from the last time we saw it. I think it’s really good, as good. But I don’t know if they stepped it up.”
Mel: “You two are amazing for training the cats to do what they do. But, I mean, I think I enjoyed the music more than the cats. But I love the cats.”
Simon was laughing too hard to give a comment, so the show cut to a commercial instead.
During his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty wrote, “This year there isn’t a dog act in the live shows–instead we have The Savitsky Cats who perform a similar act of tricks and commands on an elaborate set. Tonight their theme was ‘Keeping Up with the Kats,’ a play off of the Kardashian family, and executed a series of hop sequences, balancing walks and hoop jumps, but in a few instances the cats seemed more fickle than you’d hope. Though Howie and Mel appreciate that the act is cats doing things that dogs normally do, they didn’t think they stepped it up from last time and would like to see something new from them. Simon, for some reason, was overcome with a fit of laughter (apparently at some cat puns Heidi used?) and couldn’t give his critique! I think he liked them though.”
