The Most Memorable Times Terry Crews Took His Shirt Off on AGT

Is it hot in here?

Terry Crews Smiling

America’s Got Talent is an endless display of skill, and the person with the pleasure of hosting these jaw-dropping Acts is AGT's pec-popping king, Terry Crews

Dancing his way to the AGT stage in 2019, Crews instantly became a fan favorite. Bringing a perfect combination of comedy and heart to the table, Crews never fails to make viewers smile while hosting the hit talent competition. Crews is never afraid to jump onstage to support the competing Acts, and as AGT fans know, it's not unusual for Crews' iconic pectorals to make the occasional appearance. 

Let’s look at some of the most memorable times Crews went shirtless for the AGT crowd. 

That time Terry Crews played the flute shirtless

When Crews began hosting AGT, he made a hilarious first impression on viewers and Judges when he played the flute shirtless after an Act's rocky Audition. After an Act humorously struggled to play the flute to Ginuwine's “Pony," Crews, a known flutist, got on stage to show AGT fans some of his own musical chops. Of course, Crews completed the solo in his signature shirtless fashion. 

Terry Crews is AGT’s endless hype man

Crews doesn’t need much of an excuse to take off his shirt. After all, the former bodybuilder and NFL player made a name for himself by pec-popping his way into television, advertising, and film projects. When Crews isn't kicking it on the AGT stage, he is hyping the Acts up over social media. For the Season 16 AGT Live Finale, Crews posted an Instagram of himself dancing shirtless to “Satisfaction” to get fans and Finalists excited for a thrilling end to the season. Crews sure knows how to get the fans going!

Terry Crews stripped down to teach "Pec-Popping 101"

While Crews makes popping pecs look easy, some technical skill is required in the art of pec-popping. Luckily, AGT's Host with the most pecs is here to teach AGT fans how it's done with a helpful tutorial. The lesson, obviously, required Crews to take his shirt off, but with his guide, fans are on their way to pec-popping success too. Remember: "I must, I must, I must increase my bust!"

Terry Crews attempted to break the shirt-ripping world record

Crews brought shirtless heroism to the next level when he took on David Rush in attempt to defeat his world record for T-shirt ripping. Crews was challenged with ripping off 30 shirts in under a minute, resulting in a wildly chaotic performance. 

Lewberger dedicated a hilarious song to Terry Crews

The comedy musical group Lewberger took to the AGT stage to show Crews some love with their original song inspired by him. Did that performance include taking off their shirts in honor of Crews? Of course. Did Crews jump on stage and join in on the shirtless shenanigans? Duh!

BONUS: Howie stripped down with Rock Hard Revue

Crews isn't the only one to get shirtless during an AGT Audition. Once upon a time in 2014, Howie Mandel jumped onstage to join the Rock Hard Revue, a male review Act that stripped down for their fun-filled Audition. Mandel's goofy performance was wild enough to get Heidi Klum up from her chair screaming for more, so you could say it was a success.

To see more hilarious moments from the pec-popping AGT Host, watch Crews in the series premiere of America’s Got Talent: All-Stars on Monday, January 2 at 8/7c on NBC, and stream the episodes the next day on Peacock.
