Judge Cuts

Nick & Lindsay's Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1409 consisted of Nick singing "The Music of the Night" from The Phantom of the Opera and Lindsay playing the violin. As Nick sang, he swallowed razor blades as Lindsay pulled them out with her feet, then smashed a concrete block with a flaming hammer while Nick lay on a bed of nails. She then threw knives at him. Howie Mandel gave them a standing ovation. Their performance was strong enough to advance to the Quarterfinals.


Nick & Lindsay's Quarterfinals performance in Episode 1413 consisted of Nick singing Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" while Lindsay threw knives both barefoot and freehand, some of them flaming, and put Nick sandwiched between 2 beds of nails while she played the violin. Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell buzzed the act.  They did not receive enough votes to advance to the Semifinals in Episode 1414, eliminating them from the competition instead of Light Balance Kids and Robert Finley.
