Vegas Round

His performance in Episode 712 consisted of creating the illusion of his torso being separated from the rest of his body in cardboard boxes, and then joining back together. His audition was not strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals, eliminating him from the competition along with Taylor Reed.
