Adelaide’s own cabaret artiste Hans drew a standing ovation in his America’s Got Talent quarter final.
Hans, aka journalist Matt Gilbertson, unleashed a winter wonderland with his accordion, grand piano and dancers, shimmying across the stage to Spice Girl’s “Spice Up Your Life.”
On social media judge Howie Mandel declared him his favourite act of the night.
Hans is now awaiting a public vote to see if he makes it through.
“Vote online via two different URLs, nbc.com/agtvote and xfinity.com/agtvote” he said on Facebook. “You can vote TEN TIMES per email. So if you vote using both URLs, that is 20 votes. Also if you log in with other email addresses, you can vote even more times. Call the toll free number* that will be posted after I perform on August 28! Or download the America’s Got Talent app: nbc.com/AGTapp.
“The more ways you vote, the better my chances are of staying in the competition!”
America’s Got Talent airs 7:30pm Thursday on FOX8.
