Ashburn's Noah Epps to appear on America's Got Talent Tuesday night

12-year-old Noah Epps from Ashburn appears on “America’s Got Talent.”

Ashburn dance star Noah Epps will have a shot at advancing further on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” during the Sept. 1 episode at 8 p.m.

After receiving glowing reviews and four yes votes from judges in June for his marionette performance, the 12-year-old dancer was selected as one of 44 acts to move on to the live rounds.

“It’s exciting, and we are ready for anything,” Noah’s father, Brandon Epps, told the Times-Mirror.

The father and son will be traveling to Los Angeles, where Noah will be performing on the live show. In its 15th season, AGT’s current judges are Simon Cowell, Howie Mandell, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara.

Epps has been working with his instructor, Jesse Lloyd from Studio Bleu in Ashburn, via Zoom to develop a new routine for the show.

“We are working on something brand new. Noah is pushing his creative envelope a step above and beyond what he’s ever put together before,” Brandon Epps said.

Voting begins at 8 p.m. on the night of the show and ends at 7 a.m. the next day. Viewers can vote at or on the AGT app.

Results will be revealed during a one-hour telecast on Sept. 2 at 8 p.m., with five acts going through each week to the semifinals. During the Sept. 2 show, fans will have a chance to save an act in jeopardy during the telecast, via the “Dunkin’ Save.”

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. He’s put a lot of work into it. We’re ready to go,” Brandon Epps said.
