“At this time in our life, I don’t care what your art form is, in order to make noise, you have to be unexpected. And everything about them was unexpected,” Howie explains. “Anybody who shows up on our show, for the most part, has talent. And then, every so often, something great, surprising, and original pops, and that’s what Brent Street is.”

Why Did He Disappear?

Howie Mandel says, “Oh, I was just replicating what blew me away.” Speaking of Brent Street’s amazing performance, Howie adds, “I had this kid standing there who I thought was going to be a dancer, and then it went black, and then I saw him stuck through a sheet, a black sheet, and then there was nobody else. Then boom, hands came out of nowhere, and they were dancing. So I kind of just, in my mind, replicated what I was so excited about. Out of nowhere, the hand comes out, pops up, and gives you the ticket to move on.”

Zach promises they will continue to work hard to show they appreciate the Golden Buzzer. Furthermore, Zach says, “I know that our dedication and passion for our craft will shine through on stage… We want to convey real life emotions and feelings in a passionate way, we just ask that you join us for the ride.”
