OMG! Simon Cowell just named this danger act as ‘worst live performance’ in ‘America’s Got Talent’ history [WATCH]

“I think in the history of ‘America’s Got Talent‘ that was the worst live performance I’ve ever seen,” declared Simon Cowell after seemingly everything went wrong for danger act Nick & Lindsay during Tuesday’s Quarterfinals 2 episode. The dynamic duo took the stage hoping to right their previous wrongs, which included off-key singing and missed knife throws. Unfortunately, their act actually got worse as they performed live at the Dolby Theatre. Will America vote Nick & Lindsay through to the Season 14 Semifinals? Watch the “AGT” performance video above, read the judges’ comments below and then make your predictions before Wednesday’s results episode.

Simon Cowell: “Can I be honest with you? What she was doing with the knives trying to kill you was what I was thinking when I heard you sing. I mean, I’m not being rude, but I think in the history of ‘America’s Got Talent’ that was the worst live performance I’ve ever seen. I love you two, but everything went wrong. I mean, it was like watching a murder. Every knife fell out.”

Gabrielle Union: “I loved when you cleaned your toes. The toe-cleaning on the world’s biggest stage? That’s a bold choice.”

Julianne Hough: “It was so bad that it actually ended up becoming so good. It was comedy! You turned it around and it became a comedic act.”

Howie Mandel: “I think you went down in a ring of fire. Nothing happened but I kinda — it’s funny. America will tell you, I promise you.”

In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the live performance: “Violinist-opera singing-knife throwing duo Nick & Lindsay were next to present their potpourri of talents. Tonight they added lip synching (to ‘Ring of Fire’) to their list of talents through a theatrical and comedic performance that, yes, included Lindsay throwing flaming blades at Nick with her feet. Unfortunately those blades didn’t stick in the wood she threw them at which made for an overall messy execution that caused both Simon and Howie to hit their red X buttons. For Julianne it was ‘so bad it was good,’ but the other judges did not like it at all.”
