"There is nothing you cannot do," Tao Porchon-Lynch's website reads. And the 96-year-old, who recently competed on America's Got Talent, is living proof of that maxim.

Porchon-Lynch is certified by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest yoga teacher – she teaches at various studios around her home in White Plains, New York. Yoga is her first love; she "only" took up competitive dancing when she was 84. (She's had three hip replacements and has broken several bones, including her wrist, not that you could really tell.) A devout vegetarian, Porchon-Lynch strenuously avoids medication and supplements.

Porchon-Lynch was born in India, in the French territory of Pondicherry. She moved to France in her early 20s, where, she told Westchester Magazine, "I helped my aunt hide refugees fleeing the Nazis, and, when things became difficult, I escaped to England and continued my underground work for the Resistance movement."

On America's Got Talent's season premiere Tuesday, comedian Drew Lynch didn't let his stutter keep him from winning over the audience and judges, especially Howie Mandel.

Lynch, 23, started stuttering at age 20 after he was hit in the throat at a company softball game. According to his website, "This life-changing injury sparked a passion for writing and performing stand-up, bringing to life the social hardships of dealing with a newly found speech impediment."

After a set of jokes revolving around his injury, including a particularly successful one imagining what he would be like as the voice of a navigation system, Lynch received a standing ovation from the crowd and Mandel, 59.

"I believe you can turn anything into a positive, that's why I'm here," Lynch said, and the judges clearly admired this optimistic attitude.
