Celine was named after singer Celine Dion because her parents love the songstress; her little sister’s name is Dionne.

She stunned judges and the crowd alike as she expertly belted out her idol’s hit tune ‘My Heart Will Go On.’

Celine hit all the high notes in the nineties classic song. 

Following the standing ovation of the judges and crowd, Simon called her ‘incredible.’

Evie started crying as she said that she’s ‘here to sing for him;’ the teen explained that her dad works to support his family even though he’s recently been diagnosed with stage four colon cancer.

Magician Tom London called his father his ‘inspiration’ before his mesmerizing magic act.

The 25-year-old kicked it off by asking the crowd to hold up their phones, to which he manipulated them to red, white and blue hues.

After getting three volunteers from the audience and the help of host Tyra Banks, Tom showed how interconnected everything in life is with a mind blowing trick using just a calculator and special numbers from each of the judges’ lives.

He asked questions to audience members then had Tyra multiple them with a random number she chose; the number she got matched the number he showed hours earlier on a poster while outside.

However, the matching numbers were not random.

They signify the number of hits Simon Cowell has produced in his life, how many millions of albums Mel sold with the Spice Girls, the year Heidi began modeling and how many years Howie has been married to his wife.

Simon was astounded by his trick and said ‘that has to be magic.’

Daredevil Bello Nock actually got Simon to change his no vote to a yes.

The talent climbed up a long bendable pol – without a safety belt or net – and did tricks while on top of it.

The crowd gasped as several times it seemed he would fall down but he stayed on – even going upside on the pole.

Heidi called it ‘fun but dangerous.’

Men With Pans was an act that involved just that – men and pans.

The two gentlemen performed without any clothes on, except for a chef’s hat and strategically placed pans during their dance routine.

Host Tyra said she’s ‘kind of traumatized’  – which is probably referring to several moments where the duo accidentally flashed the crowd.

Heidi and Howie loved the performance while Simon and Mel did not.

After Heidi begged Mel to change her vote, she obliged and changed it to a yes. 

On the other end of the spectrum was 58-year-old attorney Anthony Pinoso.

He began to sing one of his songs, called Young Enough; the tune was about his wife, who is 25 years younger than him.

He might be the fastest four no’s in the history of America’s Got Talent.

Also getting the boot was a Robert De Niro  impersonator, who hit the stage in character.

The lookalike read out nursery rhymes as the famous actor, which the judges did not like.

The impersonator even called Simon a ‘rat’ – to which Simon actually liked. 

The next episode of America’s Got Talent airs on Tuesday on NBC at 8 pm PST.

Absolutely not impressed: He might be the fastest four no's in the history of America's Got Talent; Simon had enough of his singing
