Tummy Talk was a body drummer group act from Season 8 of America's Got Talent. It was eliminated in the Quarterfinals.

BackgroundEdit

Tummy Talk's members are from Salt Lake City, Utah. Their dream is to give up their day jobs so they can focus on making music. A Tummy Talk video released in January 2013 has garnered over 4 million hits on YouTube 1.

The group is comprised of drummers Matt Nickle, Liahona Seumanu, Tyrell Shepherd, and "drum" Niuvaai Luamanuvae. Niuvaai is a youth counselor.

AuditionEdit

Tummy Talk's audition in Episode 806 consisted of three of its members slapping Niuvaii, the heaviest member, around his body to create percussion sounds. After the members' performance, they tried their slapping act on Nick Cannon. Although Howard Stern voted "No," Heidi KlumMel B, and Howie Mandel all voted "Yes," sending Tummy Talk to the Vegas Round.

QuarterfinalsEdit

Tummy Talk's Week 4 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 816 consisted of "drumming" on Niuvaai's body as in their audition, but the group garnered additional members who played on actual drums. The performance had a wrestling match theme. The performance ended with Niuvaii refusing pushing one of the drummers down as "retaliation." Howie Mandel buzzed the act. Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howard Stern gave Tummy Talk standing ovations. Tummy Talk did not receive enough votes to be sent to the Semifinals in Episode 817, eliminating it from the competition along with David Ferman, SensEtion, and The Robotix.
