Bobby Badfingers was the beginning act on America's Got Talent. He made his debut by introducing a unique musical instrument to the audience: his fingers. Bobby impressed the crowd by snapping his fingers at a rapid speed, never losing rhythm with the music. Vladimir Malachikhin showed the judges and the audience his impressive talent of hand balancing. Dressed all in white, Vladimir wowed the judges with the way he held his body while balancing upside down with one arm. Ivan brought a juggling act to the judges. But as with the previous juggling act, they were not impressed. Piers and David were quick to give Ivan an "X" and Brandy reluctantly did, too. She later said she felt peer pressure to push her button. Ivan defended himself and told the judges that they didn't have a clue about the skill of juggling.
