UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – August 11, 2010 – YouTube sensations Judson Laipply, best known for his video “Evolution of Dance,” and Taiwan’s “Super Star Avenue” sensation Lin Yu Chun join former “America’s Got Talent” finalist Quick Change as performers on NBC’s top-rated summer series “America’s Got Talent” Wednesday, August 11 (9-10 p.m. ET).
The four acts from the live YouTube performance show going through to the semi-finals will also be revealed.
Laipply, creator of the famous “Evolution of Dance” video, has been seen on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” NBC’s “Today” show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Good Morning America,” and “Extra” by over 100 million combined people. Laipply’s “Evolution” is one of the most-viewed videos of all time on YouTube — clocking 148 million views. When he’s not dancing, Laipply is an inspirational speaker whose presentation “Life Is Change” is highly motivational, creative and appealing while extremely down to earth. Judson has performed at the Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast and conducted leadership seminars, corporate events, and private parties across the country.
Chun will sing his sensational rendition of “I Will Always Love You,” which he sang on Taiwan’s hit television program “Super Star Avenue.” His performance of “I Will Always Love You” also quickly became YouTube sensation and his Internet views are now in excess of 15 million. Chun grew up in Taipei, Taiwan, and at 17, began winning national contests such as the MOD TV Superstar Singing Contest, the National College Cup Championship at Yuan Ze University, the 3rd Asia University Singing Competition and the 26th Golden Melody Award Championship. His debut CD is appropriately titled, “It’s My Time,” and will be released by Sony Music on September 17.
David Maas and Dania Kaseeva are the performers who form Quick Change — one of the most original magic acts ever seen on stage or in the ring since the days of the legendary Italian transformist Fregoli. They appeared on the first season of “America’s Got Talent” and made it to the finals. Their show is a non-stop, dynamic and superbly choreographed dance exhibition that entertains an audience with staggering and flashing costume transformations in fractions of a second. Whether presented on stage, on-court, or in a circus ring, their elegant metamorphoses are simply unbelievable. Since Quick Change’s debut in 1996, audiences have responded to their incredible illusions with tremendous ovations. Quick Change has appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and has performed for the Queen of England in the Royal Variety Show.
In its fifth season, “America’s Got Talent,” airs Tuesdays (9-11 p.m. ET) and Wednesdays (9-10 p.m. ET) on NBC. Nick Cannon hosts. Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Piers Morgan star as the celebrity panel of judges.
“America’s Got Talent” is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell’s SYCO Television. Simon Cowell, Cecile Frot-Coutaz (“American Idol”), Jason Raff, Ken Warwick (“American Idol”) and Georgie Hurford-Jones are executive producers.
