Elliot turned the microphone into a dove. With a catchy bass beat playing in the background, Elliot continued to turn different items into birds. The grand finale was turning a green handkerchief into a colorful macaw. The audience liked the magic and the judges were impressed and passed Elliot on to the next round.
Leonid the Russian guy who made a balancing act was rejected by both David and Piers.
Brandy asked the other two judges to reconsider and gave him a chance.Leonid cried and related how he dreamed of becoming popular. The judges sympathized and passed him to the next round.

I like spy movies. I grew up with Bond films (who wouldn't when there is James Bond in every decade?)that I do not miss the reruns of these old films during some holidays when the whole week is a James Bond week. My favorite is Sean Connery. He's the first Bond. The latest is Daniel Craig
First James Bond movie of Sean was Dr. No(1962) and his twefth that includes the Longest Day. Other James Bond films are: (1963 )From Russia With Love; (1964) Goldfinger ; (965)Thunderball;1967 You Only Live Twice;(1971) Diamonds Are Forever.
After the "You Only Live Twice", Connery announced that he did
not want to do any Bond movie. George Lazenby was the second James Bond in a film On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1968 with Telly (Kojak) Savalas as the villain and Diana Rigg ("knighted" or "Damed" for her contribution in the arts and films) as the only
Mrs. James Bond.
That was the first and the last movie for Lazenby. In 1971, Connery was
lured back with a fatter pay cheque to do Diamonds are Forever.
