Judge Heidi: “What is he doing now?

Judge Simon: “No! No! No! No!”

Alfredo Silva: “Heidi can I use your phone, please?”
Judge Heidi: “Now?”
Alfredo Silva: “Now. Thank you.”
Judge Heidi: “No, you’re not doing this backwards.”
Judge Mel B: “He’s trying to shoot it from the phone.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Judge Simon: “Wow! Howie.”
Judge Howie: “First of all, when I see the emotion in your face, I realize what this means to you. And as Simon said many times, this is the Olympics of talent. And you rose to the occasion.

And it was not only dangerous; it was sexy — it was like fifty-shades of danger.

Alfredo Silva: “Thank you, Howie.”

Judge Simon: “I though last time was good — this was unbelievable. I almost don’t want you to go through, because I’m not sure my heart would stand it from being on this with you.

In my opinion, what you just showed us tonight defines what a champion is.

Alfredo Silva: “Thank you so much.”

Judge Heidi: “I mean you are really pushing yourself to the limit. I almost had a panic attack. You guys are absolutely insane. Like, literally my heart was almost jumping out of my chest.

And something is happening to me right now!”
