Johnny Showcase & the Mystic Ticket toe the line between performance art and a psychedelic soul revival. This crew of funk-rock pioneers and their ecstatic live shows have propelled the band into local stardom in Philadelphia. After performing live shows in cities around the country, Johnny is excited to bring the funk to the "AGT" stage.
Johnny Showcase was chosen to advance to the Top 36.
Johnny Showcase's Quarterfinals performance in Episode 1611 consisted of singing his original song "The Octopus". Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell buzzed the act, but Heidi Klum gave them a standing ovation. Johnny did not receive enough votes to advance to the Semifinals in Episode 1612, eliminating the group from the competition along with Dokteuk Crew instead of Josh Blue.
Johnny Showcase is the only act in the Season 16 live shows to be buzzed by a judge other than Simon Cowell.
