Ken Jeong Appears on ‘America’s Got Talent’ as Celebrity Judge, Delivers as Promised

Ken Jeong is the first celebrity to join Season 13 of “America’s Got Talent” in the Judge Cuts round on Tuesday alongside Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel, and Simon Cowell.

In the episode, the physician-turned-comedian and Klum were asked to volunteer in an apple archery magic trick performed by contestant Aaron Chow, Resonate reported.

In the teaser clip, the “Crazy Rich Asians” star was asked to hold an apple — with Klum’s wedding ring inside it — over the model’s head as Chow prepares to shoot a bow and arrow.

Chow, who stood a few feet away from the stage and onto a rotating platform, managed to hit the apple and land the arrow in the center of the board, with the ring hanging off of it.

Jeong dropped a heartwarming message after a dangerous trapeze act performed by an acrobatic couple went wrong.

It’s not ‘America’s Got Perfectionist,’ this is ‘America’s Got Talent.’ No one can do this,” he told the couple from Utah after the duo asked the judges if they could perform the blindfold trapeze act for the second time.

“I mean, it’s okay,” he continued.
