Josh2Funny Breaking Record At AGT
America’s Got Talent is an entertainment talent stage that provides to some of the world’s most talented Acts and, sometimes, for some of the world’s most memorable rejections.
Despite being rejected three times by the judges of AGT, Josh2funny however broke a record upon gracing the stage of the most popular talent reality Tv show, as his performance video posted on AGT’s social media crossed 8 million views in less than 48 hours and the video was also the most liked video of any other contestant on the show.

AGT Judges had a “good feeling” when the 32-year-old Nigerian Josh Alfred came onstage, eliciting applause when shouting how happy he was to be on America’s Got Talent. Alfred promised to do “something different” that the Judges had never seen before.
But that wasn’t the case, he was neither a speed reader nor anything close to it.

For his speed-reading act, Alfred flipped through three books, muttering unintelligibly through each one. Sofia Vergara was the first to press on the red X, with Simon Cowell calling the performance “pointless.”

It appeared too bad for Alfred, who jokingly said he hoped to spend his $1 million winnings on books. Alfred then invited the Judges to quiz him on what he’d just read, and when Howie Mandel asked about the ending in Romeo and Juliet, he hilariously answered, “I guess they died or something.”

Alfred got four no votes, but he wasn’t quite finished. Later in the August 8, 2023 episode — after other Acts auditioned onstage — Alfred returned, this time wearing a wig and introducing himself as J-OSH, “the fastest rapper in the world.”
“He snuck back in,” Heidi Klum told the other Judges.

Alfred delivered more incoherent words with his comedic rap. Vergara was once again the first to hit on the red X, and Klum followed suit.

“I was getting to the best part,” Alfred maintained. “I was about to kill it.”
Cowell laughed, and while the Judges said they couldn’t understand it, Alfred said he believed listeners who appreciated “fast rap” could “slow it down in their minds.”

Leaving with another four no votes, the Judges thought they’d seen the last of Josh Alfred, but no.

Later, Alfred returned with a fake beard and purported to be the magician, Terrifying J. Of course, he was fooling no one. Bumbling onstage, he let playing cards fall from his hat, soon getting the red buzzer from Mandel.

Wanting to “connect” Mandel’s life to the cards, Terrifying J asked when his birth month was and promised to draw an 11 for November (note: standard playing cards don’t include 11). Mandel said, “That would be amazing,” though Alfred ultimately drew a 10.

Klum and Vergara hit their red buzzers nearly simultaneously. Cowell, however, clapped at the performance as audience members laughed along.

Looking unperturbed the judges’ “no vote”, many believed he was there for some cruise and to sell his original craft in the world’s most famous stage in calculated move to attract international audience into his already teaming fanbase. If that was the case, then it’s safe to say Josh2funny succeeded – this is because aside the judges acknowledging his ingenuity, the cheering crowd were thoroughly entertained as could be seen in their voices.
