  1. What did u think about the magician throwing the dental floss to Howie? I really thought that he put on a good performance w/ great facial expressions and handle of the stage. It is too bad he did not make it.

    SurelyBSerious – he did make it through. Dan Sperry is his name. I love this guy!


  3. I see that Michael Lipari & Ashleigh Dejon – Los Angeles (Aerialists) don’t have a star by their names. Well, I think they were stars tonight. I don’t know that could have their own act, but they certainly could be a featured part of Cirque du Soleil. It was a very seductive performance.

    Michael Grasso was really good too!

    MCL, I don’t know if I’ll be around to watch the results tomorrow. My husband is having his cancer removal surgery. Things are a bit anxious right now.

    I hope you are doing well!

    Grammie Kari


  4. You must be very happy, MCL, because Michael Grasso certainly proved himself last night. He should certainly make it through this round.

    My prayers are with your husband and your family, Kariann. I hope all goes well with his surgery today.

    Grammie Kari – my thoughts and prayers are with you today. II am praying that his surgery is another cancer success story. The medical advances in this disease are tremendous so stay positive and strong. xo

    I had trouble with my edit page and the star for Michael Lipari & Ashleigh Dejon wouldn’t “take”. so weird. I thought they were fantastic. Exceptional, really!

    I had a great check-up with mu cardio specialist, so I am feeling very good now.

    Louise – wasn’t Michael amazing? I love his style and he has great charisma on stage. His magical art is so refined and so exciting to watch.


  7. Grammi Kari,

    Thoughts and prayers go with you and your husband today!


  8. MCL,
    I’m very glad to hear that your check-up went well.


  9. Good to hear your check-up went well, MCL. My husband’s surgery seems to be a successful. We’ll know for sure on August 31. The cancer was contained and removed. It is amazing how that robotic surgery works – DaVinci surgery. Not comes the healing part.

    It seems AGT takes a long time to be going to the semi-finals. I enjoy most of the acts, but will be happy to see it move along.

    Sooo happy that your husband’s surgery was a success. My breast cancer was also contained and I have been cancer-free for 13 years now and counting! Always keep the faith. 🙂

    This is my first year watching AGT and I love it. I also agree it is taking an extremely long time to hit the semi-finals, but it has been fun to watch the diversity of talent.

    Too bad that AGT has so many great singers. I thought Cam Hodges was terrific and would have enjoyed seeing him move forward. He is, for me, one of the best in this competition. Happy to see Kristina Young in the Semi-Finals, though.
