Singer Maggie Lane took the stage of “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday’s episode wearing a nondescript brown dress. But as she started singing she grabbed the ties and ripped that dress right off. What was underneath left all four judges smiling.

“By taking your clothes off you open up opera to a whole new audience,” said a smiling Howie Mandel when Lane had finished singing a short operatic piece wearing a red bikini.

There were lots of smiles in the audience – check out the guys watching – as the 31-year-old personal trainer from Ohio sang.

Her real dream is to sing opera full-time, she told the judges.

Thanks to the “double whammy” of a beautiful body and voice, as judge Heidi Klum called it, she’s one step closer to that dream.

The judges put her through to the next round.

Of course they did.
