“How the hell am I supposed to comment on what I just saw?” asked an irritated Simon Cowell after comedy act Human Fountains performed Tuesday night during the first “America’s Got Talent” live show of 2018. The water-spewing act received a red X from Simon after they pulled off a disgusting hot dog trick that involved spitting a wiener, ketchup and mustard onto a bun and then someone eating it. Meanwhile, the other three “AGT” judges — Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — seemed to really enjoy the Human Fountains.

Simon: “How the hell am I supposed to comment on what I just saw? I’ll give this to you: It’s the most stupid act we’ve ever had on the finals of ‘AGT.'”
Howie: “No! But not only that, you guys teach us a lesson. Young people are watching. And what is the lesson? What is the take-away? Sharing is caring. That’s what I like about you.”
Mel: “You know what? You are something to remember. You really are. You are original and I love the song choice, by the way. But you must really love each other that much to share that much. Come on. But you know what? You’re original and you will be remembered.”
Heidi: “Honestly, just when I thought it can’t get any more ridiculous, out comes the wiener, out comes the mustard vomit. I mean, it’s kind of disgusting. But I kind of like it.”
In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty summarized, “One of the most surprising additions to the quarterfinals is Human Fountains, who were brought in tonight as a wild card selection. Once again, based on the live audience reactions, their act was simultaneously horrifying and hilarious. When the all spit mustard and ketchup on to a hot dog that one member eventually bit into, Simon hit his red X, hoping to rid the competition of them once and for all. Shortly after he was out of his seat, along with Mel, as the guy’s fountaining (is that a word?) grew closer to the dais. For Howie, the act teaches a valuable lesson to children–that ‘sharing is caring’–and then proceeded to swallow his own drink and then spit it out. Only on live TV, right?!”
