PASADENA, CALIFORNIA: Dustin Tavella performs magic for the judges on 'America's Got Talent: All-Stars' on Monday, January 9. His elaborate magic show, however, failed to impress viewers at home, and a majority of them slammed its sluggish and 'boring' pace.

Dustin Tavella was born on April 11, 1986, in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. He is a magician who uses magic to connect with people from all walks of life in order to inspire them. Dustin and his wife, Kari, live in Virginia Beach, Virginia, with their two adopted boys. "For the past 16 seasons, ‘America’s Got Talent’ has discovered incredible acts from across the globe, and Dustin Tavella continues that tradition, effortlessly delivering on what makes this show uniquely special," Jenny Groom said in a statement following Dustin's triumph on the show. "Dustin opened his heart to America, captivating viewers with his blend of magic and personal storytelling. His win exemplifies what AGT is all about — positivity, inspiration, and connection — and speaks to exactly what our country needs right now."

Many 'America's Got Talent' viewers were surprised by Dustin's victory in 2021. However, the performer won over the audience with his sympathetic style of magic, which incorporated anecdotes about his adopted boys and family life into his acts. The show immediately establishes a rivalry between Dustin and Season 16 runner-up Aidan Bryant, who is also participating on the show this week.

Heidi Klum and Terry Crews assist Dustin on stage. Dustin encourages Terry to think of positive things about Simon Cowell, but not to speak them aloud. Simon is also participating. He holds out a piece of paper with Terry's "message" about Simon being a great parent written on it. Terry claims he was thinking the same thing! You get the picture! He does wonders in front of an emotional backdrop. It's similar to what he brought to the table the last time. "You've done it again," Heidi replies. "Another genius perfect performance." "You deserve the win that you had on 'AGT,'" adds Howie Mandel, "we can’t thank you enough for this performance." Simon feels he performed better than Dustin did the previous time they competed.

As Dustin tries to set up his act with a story, fans were instantly zoned out, "Some one buzz this boring knob." Questioning how he took out the title the first time around, another fan wrote, "This might be the lamest act ever. Never understood why he won." Labeling his act as 'boring' another person added, "Boring. Blah blah blah." Another person tweeted, "ok this is getting a bit sad now."





However, he still has his loyal fans rooting for him as they write, "I DON'T KNOW HOW HE DOES WHAT HE DOES -- PLUS the INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE." Another added, "Dustin has wowed us again!" A third fan wrote, "WTH those were some mind boggling tricks!" Some also want him to take the win again, "I Pray He Wins."





'America's Got Talent: All-Stars' airs every Monday at 8/7c on NBC.
