'Turf' amazes on 'America's Got Talent'
Posted May 16, 2012
There were a lot of crazy (and some just plain stupid) acts on Tuesday night's San Francisco auditions episode of America's Got Talent, but this guy really wowed the crowd.
He's 21-year-old Alonzo "Turf" Jones, who described himself as an "extreme hip-hop contortionist dancer" who was homeless for two years after being kicked out of his home by his mother. As he started manipulating his shoulders, host Nick Cannon put it best: "Ow!"
As the crowd went nuts for him, Jones started crying.
"What I loved about you, is you came out on this stage and did something I've never seen before," said new judge Howard Stern. "You are a true original and I think you are what we're looking for."
