Quick change duo Sixto & Lucia turned their June 12 audition on “America’s Got Talent” into a couples couselling session. When the pair revealed that they still worked together but were no longer a romantic item, the two women on the judging panel were having none of it. After watching them perform, Heidi Klum and Mel B each declared that Sixto was still in love with Lucia and wanted her back. (Watch their audition video above.)
While sparks may fly as they get in and out of their outfits, their relationship is also combustible it seems. The pair exchanged a bit of banter before launching into their routine. The capper of their audition was having host Tyra Banks appear through a puff of smoke in a new outfit.
Banks was visibly wowed by their work as were the judges. Head judge Simon Cowell characterized their act as one of the best of its kind and declared that they were perfect for “AGT.” Agreed Mel B, who described their act as “both slick and entertaining, and Howie Mandel who said it was, in a word, “fantastic.”
In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty observed, “Second up were quick-changers Sixto and Lucia who were inspired to try out for ‘AGT’ by the quick-changing couple from season 1. Set to Jennifer Lopez‘s bop “Let’s Get Loud,” Sixto served as assistant to Lucia for much of the act as he raised curtains quickly around Lucia before donning a change himself and then capping it all off by bringing Tyra out on stage and changing both her and Lucia together amidst a cloud of smoke. Afterward, it was a sweep of four YESES for the act so they’ll move on to the next round.”
