Singer, accordionist and dancer Hans (who may or may not have hailed from Germany) was shockingly eliminated during Wednesday’s results episode of “America’s Got Talent” in a tense showdown between him and married band Us the Duo. And “AGT” judge Mel B was furious about America’s decision. “Congratulations that you’re through,” Mel told Us the Duo. “[But] Hans, I need my glitz and my glamour still! I wish you could both go through, I really do.” Sound off down in the comments section about Hans’ elimination.
Hans took “Americas Got Talent” by storm in Season 13 with his outlandish, over-the-top performances. During what turned out to be his final showing in the Quarterfinals 3 episode, Hans took on “Spice Up Your Life” by The Spice Girls, a song that Scary Spice herself, aka Mel B, hardly even recognized. As she explained to Hans, “I was saying to Howie Mandel, ‘What song is it?’ At Spice Girls we write our own material and I didn’t even recognize my own song. But you killed it! Yes you did!”
Back in the Judge Cuts Hans performed a show-stopping rendition of “It’s Raining Men” and wowed all of the judges. Hans had a running gag throughout all of his appearances where he continued to hit on Simon Cowell. “We’ve never met, but I feel like I’m stirring up something that has been lurking there,” he told Simon back in his original audition. After Hans’ “Spice Up Your Life” performance he whispered to Simon, “I promise you I’ll perform it on our wedding night.”
Besides Hans, the other four acts eliminated this week on “AGT” 2018 were dance group The Future Kingz, singer/pianist Joseph O’Brien, illusionist Rob Lake and blacklight dance group UDI Dance. Which eliminated act will you miss the most? Vote now in our poll.
In his “AGT” live blog our recapper John Benutty had this to say about Hans’ final performance: “In his pre-performance package he conceded that he isn’t the best singer or the best dancer, but knows ‘how to put on a show.’ And tonight he did exactly that — he enlisted a troupe of professional dancers to back him up in an electric and unique performance of ‘Spice Up Your Life’ by The Spice Girls. Heidi likened Hans to the child of Mel and Elton John and, honestly, that is spot on. She joined the other three judges in a standing ovation and Howie even called it his favorite act of the night.”
