"America's Got Talent" was on fire Tuesday night, with several auditions held outdoors to showcase major stunts. There was Damone Rippy, the 16-year-old flyboarder who got the girls squealing, the Metal Mulisha freestyle motocross team performing "Kiss of Death," and Wally Glen -- who calls himself Pyro Boy, despite seeming closer to senior citizen than senior in high school.



For his act, Pyro Boy covers his body in fireworks, dances around, and explodes on stage. Hearing this, judge Howard Stern announced, "I feel like I've been institutionalized and we're all in one crazy house together, 'cause this sounds nuts to me. I mean, do women get excited by this when they see you covered in fireworks?" Pyro Boy: "They find it hot." Haha. Ba dum dum. But seriously, sometimes they should consider changing the name of the show to "America's Got Issues."



Pyro Boy's audition was set to "Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30," aka the music at the start of "2001," then "Ode to Joy" and "God Bless America." They really should've added Katy Perry's "Firework," but maybe they couldn't get the rights. The stunt was staged at night for full effect. It took Pyro Boy a while to get his gear on, leaving the judges time to worry about what might happen -- to themselves, if the sparks came too close. The result was quite a sight, making Pyro Boy look like a psychotic astronaut on fire. It was hard to know whether to be impressed or scared. Howie Mandel was into it. Heidi Klum and Nick Cannon just hid.
