In an episode that aired on NBC on Tuesday, August 16, 2022 at 8 p.m. ET, the second round of qualifying for season 17 of America’s Got Talent (AGT) aired.
During the two hours, the contestants showed a wide range of talents, such as magic, acrobatics, singing, dancing, comedy and much more. Only two of the 11 acts will pass.
Aiko Tanaka did stand-up on tonight’s show. Even though the judges liked her, she didn’t do much to impress the viewers at home. One person said:
In America’s Got Talent (AGT) Season 17, there was a wide range of wit, glitz, and grace, and the contestants’ stories were very inspiring. Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara all returned as judges, and they gave each contestant helpful feedback.
Who is AGT contestant Aiko Tanaka?
Aiko was born in Tokyo and raised by a single mother. She is a comedian, actress and television personality. The contestant on America’s Got Talent worked in movies. His first film was The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. She was also in Finishing The Game, a Justin Lin mockumentary about Bruce Lee’s latest film.
She has also been on many other TV shows, like The Jim Jeffries Show, The Howard Stern Show, and Comedy Central Stand-Up Asia! Live. The candidate had also done stand-up in different places, such as prisons and naval bases.

What do people think of Aiko Tanaka’s performance?
During her audition, the comedian told jokes about becoming an American citizen, getting angry on the road and what it means to be a real American. She managed to impress both the judges and the live audience, who stood up to applaud her.
She did a show called “I Do My Own Stunts” for tonight’s episode. She made jokes about her Japanese accent, how difficult it was for her to speak English, how awkward she was with others, and self-help books. Although the judges liked his performance – Howie Mandel gave a standing ovation – the audience was unimpressed.
54 acts were chosen to perform live at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in the qualifying round. The qualifying rounds will continue for three more weeks, and only ten contestants and one wild card will qualify for the final round. Tomorrow’s show will decide which of the top 2 artists will make it to tonight’s final.
