What makes America’s Got Talent different from other talent shows is that it gives a chance to the contestants to showcase their talents on stage, irrespective of their age or whatever their talent be. To qualify for the next round, the contestants have to win at least three yes votes from the judges, while two red buzzers would eliminate them.
The esteemed judges, as well the host, had one chance each to hit the golden buzzer and send their favorite contestant straight to the live performance round.

A Recap of the Previous Episode and What To Expect From America’s Got Talent Season 16 Episode 8?
On the seventh night of auditions, the first act was by a father-son duo. The father and his eleven-year-old son displayed their martial arts skills and created an entire storyline as their performance. They impressed the judges with their strength, synchronization, and balance, thus getting four straight yes votes. Next to perform was the group Hiplet Ballerinas. The performance of five young women to the Pussycat Dolls song, “React,” was able to impress even Simon, who admitted that he previously thought ballet performances to be quite dull. In all, they got four yes votes.
The next three performances were by Sweet Sassy Molassie with her rockstar ice skating performance, a mailman Anthony the Molar Man who tried to play songs off the flicks of his fingers on his teeth, and Drumstick, who dressed as a chicken and performance solo drum. All three failed to impress the judges, and each of them got four red buzzers. The next performance was by singer Sarah Potenza, who impressed the judges with a powerful rendition of “Worthy” and got four yes votes.
Brother sister duo Michael and Angelina presented a high-energy ballroom dance act and got four yes votes. As Michael had previously performed six years back and got a red buzzer by Howie in the live show round, it was a great moment for them. Italian acrobatic Davide Zongoli showed his flexibility and balance using a swing pole but failed to impress Simon and Howie, who found this performance to be too slow.
Ehrlich from the Philippines is an illusionist dancer who used batons in a way that made it seem that he was controlling them in the air. The judges agreed that this was a beautiful, flawless and different performance, and he got four yes votes. Father and daughter duo Gene and Isabella won four yes votes with their dancing duet. Husband and wife duo The Owl and The Pussycat impressed the judges with their trapeze artistry.
Next was a band of trio sisters, Hello Sister, from Orlando, who performed on the original song “Middle Schooler.” Though the judges were divided in their opinions, they ultimately decided to give them another chance. Next was a sixty-two-year-old voice instrumentalist, Michael Winslow, whom Terry called a legend even before his audition started because of his roles in “Space Balls,” the “Police Academy” movies, and “Gremlins.” His unique ability to do noises and voices earned him a package of four votes.
French mentalist Kevin Mucous impressed all the four judges with his mind transmission act. He had come to the stage to show his daughters never to give up. Hand balancing contortionist, Kyle, came on stage in his persona, Scarlett Business. The entertainment quotient of his performance got him four yes votes.
The last performance was from Ray Singleton from North Carolina. He sang a love song dedicated to his wife, a US Navy veteran and a brain cancer survivor. His commitment, sense of love and warmth, moved the judges and got him four yes votes. America’s Got Talent Season 16 Episode 8 will mark the eighth round of auditions when the talented contestants vie for the judges’ approval. In America’s Got Talent Season 16 Episode 8, it will be the second time in America’s Got Talent’s history after season 7 that there will be more than seven audition rounds.
