America's Got Talent Wiki

Holy Cow was a dancer from Season 1 of America's Got Talent. He was eliminated in the audition round.


Holy Cow performs shows across the globe. Most shows are 6 minutes long, but can be shorter or longer upon request. John Mallory, the man inside the seven foot cow costume can change music, skits, and even small details such as using various national songs and can incorporate flags of various nations. TV shows can feature Holy Cow performing live or pre-recorded.

John has performed at sporting arenas in every major sport, in theatres for audiences for adults, children, or combined adults and children. For example, Holy Cow performed as the opening act for comedian Jon Lovitz twice. [1]


Holy Cow's audition in Episode 101 consisted of break dancing in an inflatable cow suit to "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)," at one point even squirting milk from his "udders”. Piers Morgan and Brandy Norwood buzzed the act. All three judges voted "No”, eliminating Holy Cow from the competition.


  • Holy Cow was the first animal suit dancer of the whole series to be televised.
  • Holy Cow and Mr. Moo Shakes in Season 17 are the only televised acts in cow suits to date.
