Has “America’s Got Talent” found its next ventriloquist superstar? Terry Fator (Season 2), Paul Zerdin (Season 10) and Darci Lynne Farmer (Season 12) have already won the NBC reality show thanks to their hilarious puppet skills, and now jack williams hope to join them. The Indianapolis resident will audition on the next episode on Tuesday, June 14, but NBC has already released a video preview of his performance (look above).
First Heidi Klum assumes Jack is a magician because he has a covered box next to him, but he corrects her by noting, “Close. I am a ventriloquist. The contestant then says hello to Sofia Vergaraa fellow ventriloquist who began voicing puppets as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on the ABC sitcom “Modern Family.”
“Those are honestly big shoes to fill,” Jack says of former “AGT” ventriloquist winners Terry and Darci. “Terry was one of the first ventriloquists I ever saw, and when I saw him on that stage I just thought, ‘I just want to do this, this is amazing. “” He adds, “That’s why I wanted to come here today. I want to do this live on the Vegas strip.
Jack pulls out his bunny puppet named Foster and begins the act. In a hoarse voice, Foster declares, “My plan is working.” Apparently, it’s Bunny’s plan to be smuggled onto the stage so he can “show off my talent” to the world. And what is his skill? Why, it’s ventriloquism, of course! Jack and Foster recite a few tongue twisters to determine who is the best ventriloquist, and Foster easily succeeds.

A vengeful Jack then does something he’s sworn “never to do” and launches Foster’s voice through the theater. This leaves the bunny sad and speechless. He tries to scream and scream at his human companion, but no sound comes out. Soon, Foster’s voice comes roaring back, but it accidentally goes into Jack, meaning Jack’s voice has gone into Foster. The rest of the act is truly original as the man and the puppet speak in each other’s voices.
At the end of the performance, the audience jumps to their feet, as do the four judges: Heidi, Sofia, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel. Do you think Jack Williams has what it takes to join the “AGT” winners list? Tune in Tuesday night to see what the judges have to say about her performance.
