Sara Carson and her dog Hero performed a new act last night on America's Got Talent, successfully passing night one of the judge's cuts portion of the show and moving on in the competition.
Her first appearance on the show a few week's ago was filled with drama and took a personal plea from judge Simon Cowell to save the dog trainer.
But last night all five judges loved the former North Bay resident's act.
"She's a great girl," said Cowell after the cuts were announced.
"I never dared dream this big," said Carson at show's end. "I'll probably stop shaking in a couple of days."
Carson's act kicked off the show, and in a pre-taped segment, the 22-year-old SJSH and Canadore grad told the audience how she sleeps in her car and how her chosen career destroyed family relationships.
"I owe it all to Simon (Cowell) because I don't normally have a lot of people believing in me," she said. "Growing up I was pretty introverted, very shy and didn't connect with people very well. I loved animals and started falling in love with dog training and I wanted to pursue it as a career. Some of my family members didn't agree with it and I haven't talked with them in years. It hurt and that's about the time I got Hero.
"His name is Hero because I needed a hero at the time, to be there for me because nobody really was. I just want to show those family members that I can be successful at this."
Last night on the judges’ cuts edition of America’s Got Talent, 20 contenders were battling for seven spots.
