The supremely talented Jefferson Davis High Band charm the judges with their impressive and unique marching style and receive a standing ovation. Australia-based dancer and acrobat, Siena, impresses the judges with her flexibility and blindfold choreography.

Texas-based openly-gay country singer, Kameron Ross begins his audition with Brooks & Dunn’s ‘Red Dirt Road’ but is interrupted by Simon, who asks him to sing an a cappella and boy does he deliver! The synchronized singing-dancing performance of The Ninja Twins – James and Nick Aragon manages to entertain Howie and Sofia, who give them a pass to the next round. Sheldon Riley’s powerful vocals and mysterious personality leave the judges yearning for more. Of course, the singer bags a unanimous Yes. Heidi joins the trio for the at-home online auditions.
