“I need a bucket!” groaned “America’s Got Talent” host Tyra Banks in the Judge Cuts 2 episode after La Fontane Umane (aka the Human Fountains) performed their new act. The last time they appeared Simon Cowell wasn’t impressed by their sophomoric water-spitting, so this time around they upped the ante by spewing orange juice and a raw egg into each others’ mouths. Did you turn as green as Banks, or were you howling with laughter? Watch the “Americas Got Talent” performance video above, and then read the judges’ comments below.
Olivia Munn: “So you guys have been spitting in each other’s mouths since you were children?”
Simon Cowell: “How am I supposed to judge this? They spit better? There was an egg? We are going to be talking about you later, thank you very much.”
Heidi Klum: “The egg was pretty gross. Maybe [going forward] they can have more gross things spitting at each other.”
Mel B: “I like the fact that you actually told a story. He woke up, brushed his teeth, took a shower, had breakfast. You guys told a proper story about waking up in the morning. See, I got it.”
Howie Mandel: “You guys are my personal nightmare. But you did exactly what we asked you to do. You stepped it up. I think there’s only one stage that celebrates something like that, and that is ‘America’s Got Talent,’ so thank you for being here.”
Despite the praises, the judges later decided not to advance the Human Fountains to the live shows, thereby ending their “AGT” journey. Do YOU think that La Fontane Umane was robbed? Let us know down in the comments section.
In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper Denton Davidson summarized, “You’ll remember this comedy troop for duping the audience into thinking they were opera singers, when in actuality they created ‘human fountains’ by spitting water around the stage and even into each others’ mouths. As juvenile as this act is, I have to confess I enjoyed their audition and love their sense of humor. Tonight their act tells the story of a man waking up to start his day by brushing his teeth, showering and having breakfast. At one point the water was even replaced by orange juice and eggs before being spit into each others’ mouths. Disgusting! I love it! These are the days I miss Howard Stern on this show because he would be raving. Heidi, Mel B and Howie were on their feet by the end. Simon and Olivia were grossed out by the act.”
