Scott Weider was an indoor kite flyer act from Season 4 of America's Got Talent. He was eliminated in the audition round.

Background

Scott Weider's kite flying experience begin in 1992 while his wife Pauline and he vacationed on Block Island, located 10 miles off the southern New England coast. There he purchased his first stunt kite, a "Rainbow Stunter." He had always wanted to fly after watching them on the California coast in the late 70's.

In 1994, Scott met Robert "MAC" MacBroom, a quad line flyer, designer, an innovator of the "Magic Quad Sticks." Shortly after that, he introduced Scott to the "High Flyers Flight Team."

Brenton Point was the site of the 1986 AKA National Convention, so with a prime flying location, and master flyers support, Scott had all he needed to be a happy stunt kite flyer. With his childlike excitement and heavy  practice, he has been able to secure some serious friends, fun and success.

Scott's official stunt kite competition career started in 1994 at a local regional event, the "Newport Stunt Kite Championship", held in Newport, RI, where he placed 2nd, in Novice Precision. In the fall, he attended the National Convention in Wildwood, NJ and there witnessed his hometown team the "High Flyers" capture their National Championship victory. After 7 full years of competition on the circuit, they promptly announced their retirement and expressed a wanting to pass the torch to Scott himself and other fledglings hungry to learn and willing to travel the kiting lines so to speak. Over, the winter of 1994/1995, Scott was sworn in as a member of the new dualine team, "High Flyers Too." [1]

Audition

Scott Weider's audition in Episode 405 consisted of flying his kite indoors. Unfortunately, he failed to keep the kite staying in the air due to his lack of time to prepare his kite (he had been moved up the audition schedule faster than he anticipated). Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and David Hasselhoff all buzzed the act. All three judges voted "No", eliminating Scott from the competition.
