It was gruesome night on the "America's Got Talent" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on NBC) St. Louis, Mo. auditions.
Judges, audience members and viewers at home alike squirmed when the Cut Throat Freak Show and Eric Odditorium Sideshow Act took to the stage.
The group included a sword swallower and a woman crawling across broken glass, but the piece de resistance was Jeremy Kinison, who raised a chair with his eyelids.
The judges winced and shrieked as Kinison inserted metal hooks into his lower eyelids, attached chains to them and then lifted up a chair. Don't try this at home kids!
Regular 'AGT' viewers will remember Kinison's previous appearance in 2010 when he placed explosives on his genitals with the aid of host Nick Cannon. That time he was unsuccessful, but this time Kinison and the Freak Show made it through to the Las Vegas rounds.
"America's Got Talent" continues Mondays at 8 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
