Last night's America's Got Talent auditions were a hodgepodge of good contestants and epic failures the producers conveniently decided to place near the end so we'd remember them during Vegas week.

We started with a pig and ended with a woman full of Olympic spirit. In between? Which acts have a chance to advance far this summer? Read on. Find out. Chime in.

America's Got Talent visited Tampa, Florida last night for more of the same: an awkward mix of the really talented and really hopeless. While we were treated some surprises - such as two older men with strong pop and lock routines or the guy who reminded me of Luther Vandross - there was a lot of weird and wacky.

Case in point: What person in his right mind says he's amazing at "air sex?"

Timothy Poe has apologized once again for the mess he created on America's Got Talent last week. And this time he's done so in between sobs.

The singer - who found himself in boiling hot water following a stutter-filled audition last Monday, the result of which, he claimed during the feature, was a brain injury suffering while in Afghanistan in 2009 - told a Dallas news program over the weekend that he never intended to mislead viewers.

Timothy Poe has some serious explaining to do.

With doubts already cast over the authenticity of of this America's Got Talent contestant's story - he appeared on the show Tuesday night and claimed he suffered brain damage while fighting in Afghanistan - Staff Sgt. Norman Bone has come out and told TMZ that Poe is NOT the solider in the photo (below) posted during his audition.

After watching a man blast himself out of a cannon and then witnessing an overweight pole dancer on America's Got Talent, one thing became painfully evident last night:

A high level of strange was featured throughout day two in Austin. Read through our previous AGT recap for all the acts from opening night here and then get caught up with the latest below...

The America's Got Talent auditions continued to limp along Tuesday, with producers emphasizing that contestants had to go big or go home in St. Louis. It's unclear such an emphasis was placed in this city, but we seemed to have grabbed a very interesting cross-section of auditions from all over the United States.

I had my doubts when the first few auditions included the awful drummer/mom who played "I Will Survive" and lacked a band; a woman who crushes cans with her hands (instead of her boobs; a dancing chicken; and an awkward unicyclist/lassoer - but the auditions picked up. Too bad we didn't actually see many of them. On to a full recap!

The America's Got Talent auditions continued to roll on in Tampa Bay, Florida tonight - and Nick Cannon continued to hog the spotlight. The producers really need to tone down the amount of Nick interacting with the contestants. Seriously. This isn't Nick Cannon's Got Friends.

Overall, there weren’t a lot of great performances. The weird acts that we watched included a haircutter that tried to be Edward Scissorhands; a stunning but stereotypical hula hooper; an above-average magician; and a "Boss" dance group that may be a little too out there for mainstream America.
