At first, Heidi Klum guessed that Jack was a magician, because he had a covered black box next to him on a table. However, the contestant corrected her before greeting fellow ventriloquist Sofia Vergara, who began her career voicing puppets as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on the ABC sitcom. modern family.
He then took out his bunny puppet, named Foster, and began the act. The performance was based on Foster and Jack showing their skills in front of the audience to determine who is a better ventriloquist. In an effort to win, Jack throws the puppet’s voice into the theater, which accidentally bounces off him.
Jack’s precision, as well as his ability to clearly distinguish his voice from Foster’s, floored both the judges and the audience. The contestant later said he was inspired by the show’s Season 2 winner, Terry Factor, and confessed that he did indeed have “big shoes to fill”.
“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. That’s why I wanted to come here today. I want to do this live on the Vegas strip.
