There's weird, and then there's whatever America's Got Talent contestant Pasha did during last night's final audition round. In what has to be one of the show's most bizarre acts of all time, Pasha, a Russian dancer, pranced around the stage with a creepy marionette doll in place of his wife, who supposedly wasn't able to make the audition due to a travel snafu.
Pasha's performance defies logic, so it's not even worth trying to explain what happened on stage, but Howie Mandel summed it up quite nicely: "If people just tuned in, you're gonna freak a lot of little children out!"
America's Got Talent returns after the Olympics on Tuesday, August 10. Hopefully, the Pasha-induced nightmares don't last until then.
