Howie: Hi.
Damian Aditya: Hi.
Howie: What’s your name?
Damian Aditya: My name is Damian.
Howie: What are you going to be doing here tonight?
Damian Aditya: We have a dangerous act that I want to show you guys.
Howie: How long have you been doing this?
Damian Aditya: This one is the second one.
Howie: So you’ve only done it once? And this is a very dangerous escape act?
Damian Aditya: Yes.
Howie: Why? What could happen?
Simon: He could die.
Damian Aditya: …Yes…
Howie: You’re being serious?
Damian Aditya: Serious. I’ll be locked up from ankle to wrist to neck, with only a fragile cover above me. I have two minutes to escape before 900 pounds of sand above that cross the cover and bury me alive.
Howie: It’s worth risking your life for this?
Damian Aditya: For America’s Got Talent? Yes.
Howie: You have a family?
Damian Aditya: My wife is watching from the side. And probably she isn’t going to look because she is always afraid about everything.
Howie: Your wife is very beautiful. You have any children.
Damian Aditya: No, but hopefully after this, I’m going to start a family with my wife.

Fingers crossed.

Howie: Good luck.
Damian Aditya: Thank you.

Simon: I think it’s worse than mortar.
Heidi: He’s got that thing around his neck too. He’s going to close that — Look.
Mel B: Oh my gosh.
Howie: He’s going to be buried alive.
Mel B: Oh my gosh — what’s wrong?
Howie: Is that a problem?
