'America's Got Talent': Violinst Alex Rivers wows judges, unimpressed fans say 'not a Vegas act'
Alex Rivers may have redeemed himself before the judges with a do-over performance, sadly fans were still unimpressed with the violinist's act
Occasionally a performer gets a second chance to impress the judges on 'America's Got Talent' after a dud performance in their first attempt. Violinist Alex Rivers was one of the lucky few, who managed to secure a second chance to showcase his talents before the judges.
The street performer's first performance before the judges failed to leave a mark. Simon Cowell pointed out that he needed to practice more and come back, the other judges- Sofia Vergara, and Heidi Klum agreed with Simon's assessment and sent him packing. But the judges didn't expect Alex to show up for the auditions again within 24 hours after his first audition. This time around Alex came in well prepared and played his violin with great passion. The judges were so pleased with his performance that they not only gave him their unanimous yes, but also a standing ovation. While Alex clearly redeemed himself with a do-over performance, sadly fans didn't share the same feeling.

Several fans took to Twitter to point out how Alex's act wasn't as impressive as the judges made it to be. A fan tweeted, "This violinist is out of control! #AGT." "Sorry, I'm not feeling the sassy dancing violinist #AGT," wrote a fan. "I can’t deal with another violinist that is worse than Brian King Joseph but everyone on the show pretends that BKJ doesn’t exist. Also that kid is annoying #AGT," commented a fan.
