Masterclass Discussion For America’s Got Talent Quarter-Finalists:Round Three


20110628-031508.jpg

Are you ready to watch the best show on television this summer? Of course, I am talking about America’s Got Talent.

I can’t think of a better way to relax in the late evening than to treat myself to a decaf, some popcorn and two hours of live AGT entertainment.

Have you picked your favorites yet? I love Anna Graceman, Daniel Joseph Baker and Silhouettes and am looking forward to seeing Landau Eugene Murphy’s performance on the show. Not sure if tonight’s his night, but the suspense is killing me here.

I did think, however, that magician Landon Swank should have advanced before the biker boys. I mean, how many things can one do with a bike? It’s tedious really. Maybe (fingers crossed) he will be back for the Wild Card Show.

I am also not giving hope on Dani Shay. She is really a spectacular vocalist and deserves another shot.

Please come back and comment away. :).

  5. I think I am spoiled by all the singing and dance shows I watch. I don’t get as excited over bikers, knife throwers, magicians, etc. They’ve had some really good dancers. I don’t think they want a white male singer again. I am anxious to see how Landau Eugene Murphy will do and what his song choice will be. Now, we get to the real talent!

  6. Grammie – Landau should be in the Finale. He is brilliant, a rare find. As is I Luminate. That being said, the talent is simply amazing this year – Silhouettes, Daniel Joseph Baker, Anna Graceman, – the list is endless.
