** Definitely worthy of mention is [[CampGay Leonid the Magnificent]]. He auditioned in Season 1 with a unique performance (and in a {{Stripperiffic}} outfit and was rejected. Hasselhoff brought him back, probably just to watch a train wreck. He performed a hula hoop dance wearing a tube thong and a pair of shorts and was again rejected. He returned for Season 2, eliciting an "Oh no" from David. Sharon enjoyed the camp of his act and [[ForTheEvulz Piers put him through just to piss off David.]] He was quite obviously eliminated later. He returned ''again'' in Season 6 with a quick change act (including one behind an "I Love Piers" banner. [[FacePalm Piers' reaction was classic.]] [[FagHag Sharon still loved him.]] Howie was impressed by his ability to change up his act.

* FollowTheLeader: First, there was Jackie Evancho, a young girl who unexpectedly sang "O Mio Babbino Caro". After that, there were many other unexpected singers of "O Mio Babbino Caro", including goth Andrew DeLeon, muscular Travis Pratt, another very young girl, and a woman in a bikini. It's a Stock Character of AGT. And they all sang it up in the soprano range, too!

After that, there were many other unexpected singers of "O Mio Babbino Caro", including a Marilyn Manson look-alike, a big muscle man, another very young girl, and a woman in a bikini. It's almost a Stock Character. And they all sang it up in the soprano range like Jackie, too!

* {{Ventriloquism}}: A few show up every season. In Season 2, the judges dreaded them and prepared themselves for the worst when they saw Terry Fator... [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and then he started singing]]. Also notable were Paul Zerdin and Darci Lynne, who won Seasons 10 and 11, respectively.

** Occasionally an act is someone who had one been in the entertainment business, but had to leave for some reason or another, and now they're on AGT to give it another try. One notable example is the Masqueraders in Season 12, a black singing trio who had a hit song during the days of segregation. Their first live show performance was the premiere of a single they had originally planned to release nearly fifty years prior until the Creator/MartinLutherKingJr assassination disrupted recording plans.

** Awesomely subverted when a hypnotist, well, hypnotizes Howie so he temporally thinks that people are wearing gloves, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9dFLXV9hs0 he fearlessly shakes hands with the other judges]].

** The biggest subversion of them all? '''Kenichi Ebina''', the Japanese immigrant who many thought was going to be another train wreck based on the fact that his English was broken and the claim that he didn't dance so much as do "dance-ish" moves. Then his performance began, and his "dance-ish" moves were actually pretty impressive. He got even better in the live shows, where he flawlessly combined his moves with prerecorded footage, and he ultimately '''''won'''''.
