Houlton Native Sam Johnson Performs On ‘America’s Got Talent’


This season of ‘America’s Got Talent’ has featured many acts with a Maine connection. Last night on ‘America’s Got Talent’, Houlton native, Sam Johnson, performed his high risk act outside of Radio City Music Hall.Johnson climber atop an 80-foot sway pole and put his feet in stirrup-like holders atop the pole and flipped upside down. slid his foot through a rope noose and the sway pole suddenly dropped like a pendulum, taking Johnson with it.

The judges gave Johnson mixed reviews, some of them thinking, the act wasn’t dangerous enough.

We’ll find out tonight if Johnson advances to the next round.

Other acts on ‘America’s Got Talent’ with ties to Maine have also appeared on this season. Colin Britt, an Edward Little High School graduate, is one of the founding members of the act 3 Penny Chorus and Orchestra, they were eliminated last week.

Lewiston High School graduate, Abi Hodgson, is part of the act American Military Spouses Choir, they are still on the show.

Watch Sam Johnson’s performance right here and let us know if you liked his performance.
