Not pretty at all.
After performing "Crunk Nativez," the Pawnee/Choctaw duo of Lil' Mike and Funny Bone was criticized harshly by the judges for what seemed to be a disorganized routine. After they had left the stage, celebrity judge Howard Stern made the unconventional move of calling them back out. He berated them for a lack of preparation and informed them that the four-judge panel was unanimously against them continuing on to Radio City Music Hall.
Mike Bone seemed undeterred, immediately asserting that they were still the best act on their home turf of Oklahoma City. Later that night, they shared a link to a full video of themselves performing the song that AGT viewers scarcely had the chance to hear.
"The Full Performance of 'CrunkNativez'," Mike Bone tweeted, "What AmericasGotTalent didnt want U to see."
