Eric Dittelman's audition in Episode 708 consisted of correctly identifying what Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel drew (himself, eyeglasses, and an ear respectively) despite wearing a blindfold with half-dollars being taped securely over his eyes. All three judges voted "Yes," sending the act to the Vegas Round.

Vegas Round

Eric Dittelman was one of the Judges' Favorites in the Vegas Round. He was sorted into the "Magic Acts" category. His performance in Episode 712 consisted of correctly writing the name of Sharon Osbourne's first crush was (even though she made him up) through "reading her mind." His audition was strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals along with Spencer Horsman.


Eric Dittelman's Quarterfinals performance in Episode 720 consisted of correctly guessing what number Howie Mandel chose in a "Deal or No Deal" scenario. He finished in either fourth or fifth place in America's Vote. In the Judges' Choice, although Sharon Osbourne did not vote for him, Howard Stern and Howie Mandel did, sending him to the Semifinals in Episode 721 instead of All That!.


Eric Dittelman's Semifinals performance in Episode 726 consisted of creating the illusion of correctly predicting what colors Howard Stern chose to draw on his a portrait of his face. Eric did not receive enough votes to be sent to the Finals, eliminating him from the competition in Episode 727 along with Bria Kelly, instead of Tom Cotter.
