<-- Previous EpisodeNext Episode -->
It is Vegas Week and the contestants who made it through in Audition Round are not safe as each of them are going to have to perform again for the judges’ vote. The acts arrive in Vegas and are happy to be there. They all are having fun, but they know that it is the time to show that they are a star. Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Howard Stern arrive and they are going to have to eliminate people from the competition to just 48 acts. The contestants are told that they are going to be divided into two groups: Judges’ Favorites and Stand-By. The Judges Favorite will perform first and the Stand-By list will pick up the remaining spots. If their names are not on the list, then they are going home right now.

The acts get to the list and they find that some of them are Judges’ Favorites and others are on Stand-By. However, William Close, Olate Dogs, Bandbaz Brothers, Ivy Rose, Charlie C and David Smith don’t see their names. They come out to the stage and the judges have Ivy Rose Bandbaz Brothers and Charlie C step forward. They are told that they are going home right now. William Close, Olate Dogs and David Smith are told that they don’t need to see them perform because they are going strait through to the LIVE shows!
