Judge Heidi: “So welcome back to the CHAMPIONS!”

Billy England: “Ever since we were kids, our mom had a dream for us to get to Vegas, and now we headline a show, Absent, at Caesar’s Palace.”

Judge Mel B: “That’s a great show.”
Billy England: “Yeah, and it was all thanks to America’s Got Talent, and the American people, so we can’t thank you guys enough.”
Judge Simon: “I’m going to be honest with you: so many people have said to me how surprised they were that you didn’t win. So many people.”
Emily England: “Thank you Simon.
Judge Simon: “And maybe this time you do have a chance to win it.”
Emily England: “That would be the dream. That’s the dream.”
Judge Heidi: “Well are you guys ready? Well are YOU guys ready?

She wears the best outfits.”

Judge Howie: “Oh my gosh!”
Judge Heidi: “Look at that.”
Judge Howie: “No hands.”

Judge Heidi: “The beard again.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Judge Heidi: “I saw that: you had a bunch of hair in your hands. Oh my gosh; you’ve just lost half of that beard again.

I mean I can watch you two over and over and over again. It’s soooo good. What did you think, Simon?”

Judge Simon: “Every time this act comes on, it goes a stage further. It’s terrifying. I think these guys define the word “Champions”.
Judge Heidi: “Mel, what did you think?”

Judge Mel B: “I mean you just went bam — bam — bam. Trick after trick after trick. And you do it so gracefully, like uh, easy-peasy until the next one.

I absolutely loved it. I think you’re brilliant.”

Judge Heidi: “Howie, what did you think?”

Judge Howie: “Everything you guys have said and more. The point is that the super fans from all across America, when they are voting, only one more can go through. They have to realize how dangerous this is, how amazing it is. And as Simon said and we can’t say enough, you are a champion.”
