Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel wrapped up the final round of auditions on Monday’s edition of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, which could have been perfectly summed up as “Beauty and the Beast.”
First, the beast: Smooch Piggy, a tutu-wearing swine whose talents included climbing up steps, honking a horn and knocking down miniature bowling pins.
“Bacon for everybody!” the King of All Media said.
While Sharon Osbourne voted to advance the pig to the next round, Howard and Howie passed on promoting porky.
Now, for the beauty: Mary Joyner, the daughter of late Olympic star Florence “Flo-Jo” Griffith-Joyner, delivered an enchanting rendition of the Sara Bareilles song Gravity.
“I think we just fell in love with you,” Howie told her, while Howard said, “You had me in 30 seconds.”
Sharon dubbed the 21-year-old college student “a genuine performer.”
After she was given the green-light for the next round, her father, Olympic gold medalist Al Joyner, joined her onstage, beaming with pride.
America’s Got Talent airs on NBC Mondays at 8/7c and Tuesdays at 9/8c.
