Lewis Shilvock audition AGT
Before his appearance on AGT, Lewis Shilvock has already garnered medals and trophies from numerous dance contests. He has several awards in different dance categories from Get the Beat (GTB) Dance International and he is also the Dance Around the World (DATW) Solo Competition 2019 Champion.
Sofia Vergara noted the enthusiastic reaction of the audience to Lewis’s performance. “All those flips in the air they were like perfect how you landed and I loved when you took your pants off really quickly. It was fantastic, I loved it.”
Howie Mandel said Lewis is a very good dancer but thinks the performance was “more musical and Broadway than it was big stage, million dollar act best dancer in the world.” (Audience disagrees with Howie by giving lots of thumbs down signs.)
Eric Stonestreet, a guest judge in lieu of Heidi Klum, commented “I think it was that (pointing to Howie), exactly what he said and then a whole lot more. Because right from the beginning, your charisma, your charm was infectious. I think you’re a great dancer, so, congratulations.”
Simon Cowell said, “I think I really really admire your tenacity. I’m imagining you in your house in Australia, your parents without being rude a bit boring and you’ve flown in 16 hours, you’re sort of like Billy Elliot in a way. Where this goes, I’m not quite sure. I mean whose career would you like to be as successful as?” Lewis answered Australian dancer and actor Michael Dameski and Russian American dancer, choreographer and actor Mikhail Baryshnikov.
Howie voted “No”, while Eric, Sofia and Simon voted “Yes”.
America’s Got Talent (AGT) Season 15 premiered in the United States on May 26, 2020, on NBC. For this season, AGT judges are Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, returning Heidi Klum, and newcomer Sofia Vergara.
This season is most notable for its production being affected by the COVID-19 or coronavirus pandemic in 2020, which impacted audition sessions. The program initially moved to filming without an audience present at auditions, before ultimately suspending production. Auditions were later allowed to continue, but via online applications from those quarantined in their homes.
The production staff decided to push through with the broadcast as planned and premiere on May 26. Debate continues on how many episodes would be broadcast with the amount of material that had been recorded.
