Kathie Lee & Hoda

Howie Mandel, Nick Cannon judge fourth hour's drunk talents

"America's Got Talent" celebri-judges Howie Mandel and Nick Cannon stopped by TODAY Monday morning, and the ladies did their best to knock their socks off.

Sara successfully walked on her hands ("She's a dyslexic tap dancer!" quipped Howie), while Hoda spun a basketball on her finger while sipping red wine from a crazy straw. (She was slightly more successful at the drinking part.) Kathie Lee tried and failed to hula-hoop while drinking a glass of Chardonnay. So who made the cut?


Howie gave Kathie Lee a 7 out of "?" possible points, and Nick… just drew a picture of a smiley face. Which was charitable.

The judges very kindly said that all three of them were welcome to move on to the next round of competition in Vegas. That is, unless Hoda runs off and joins the Harlem Globetrotters.

Julieanne Smolinski is a TODAY.com contributor. Her hidden talent is a Howie Mandel impression.
