The final night of season six auditions for “America’s Got Talent” included a boy who spins with his hair, a cat psychic/magician and a shy opera singer already being called “The Asian Susan Boyle.”
Texas housewife Cindy Chang, 42, shed tears of joy after stunning the judges with her remarkable rendition of Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro.”
“I used to be really shy. I’m still a little shy but I’ve come out of my shell a little bit,” she said. “I wanted to always be a singer but my parents said no.”
“I can’t believe I am here. I started taking my first voice lessons in my mid to late 20s and my voice teacher said it was too late for me.”

The judges disagreed and unanimously sent the former technical writer and editor through to compete in Las Vegas.
“You have a very beautiful voice ad you are a very beautiful woman, I can tell, inside as well as out,” Sharon Osbourne praised.
“I hope your parents are very proud,” Howie Mandel added. “I hope they are watching and can share in the feeling we have in this room.”
Wednesday’s edition of ‘AGT’ also featured:
The Fearless Flores Family The exciting (and dangerous!) daredevil act featured a brother and sister – ages 8 and 13 – zooming around on motorcycles inside a giant metal ball called “The Globe of Death.” “That is one of the most exciting things I have ever seen on the show,” Piers Morgan exclaimed as the young adventure seekers moved on to Vegas.
Fantastic Fig Once a lawyer who represented Jimmy Hendrix, Mr. Fantastic is now a magician who dazzled the judges with his array of card tricks. But he nearly blew the audition by breaking into dance with is cat, Newton.
Fatally Unique (Dance Troupe, 13 – 22) A crowd favorite, their aggressive, mostly synchronized hip-hop moves more than made up for the crazy costumes and hair styles. To Vegas they go.
