Gymnast Gabby Douglas shows off talent as co-host on 'America's Got Talent'

NBC / Today
Gabby Douglas -- and her two gold medals -- made an appearance on Wednesday night's "America's Got Talent" results show.

On Wednesday night's "America's Got Talent" results show, viewers learned a few things. Firstly, some entertaining YouTube acts aren't nearly as fun offline as they are online. Secondly, dance troupe Academy of Villains are the exception to that rule. And lastly, double gold medalist Gabby Douglas has definitely got talent -- and not just for gymnastics.

Douglas, who emerged as one of the Team USA stars of the Olympics Games in London, earned a standing ovation as soon as she hit the talent show stage. But she wasn't a competitor this time. Rather than showing off her tumbling skills, the 16-year-old showed off her co-hosting chops alongside regular host Nick Cannon to chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!" from the crowd.

If only the audience had been nearly that excited about theatrical illusionist Rudy Coby or Romeo Dance Cheetah. They were not.

Cannon told Douglas it was "such an honor" to share the stage with her, and she returned the compliment, adding that she felt "so honored" to be there.

Between hosting duties, Douglas looked back at her moment in the 2012 Olympic spotlight.

"I was just so happy representing Team USA and being up on the podium," she said of her wins.

As for the "AGT" winners on Wednesday night, the Magic of Puck, Bria Kelly and Clint Cavalho (and his birds) joined the Academy of Villains as the acts moving on.
