Jonathan Nosan's audition in Episode 1102 consisted of contorting his body to The Weeknd's "Earned It"; for example, he bent his legs over his head and then stood back up. Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes," sending Jonathan to the Judge Cuts.

Judge Cuts

Jonathan Nosan's Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1110 consisted of performing a stationary contortion routine on a rotating platform in a sparkly outfit, including balancing his body up in the air with his arms laid flat down while bending his legs over and in front of his head during one of the poses. Simon Cowell buzzed the act. Jonathan's performance was not strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals, eliminating him from the competition along with Shane and Shannon Jensen and The Baron of the Universe.
