Masterclass Discussion For America’s Got Talent Season Seven: The Tampa And St. Petersburg Auditions Auditions


Will someone please ‘splain to me what is going on with this crazy, dysfunctional show this season? They change the time, the scheduling and now, tonight, they are back in Tampa? Didn’t they already visit Tampa? Is this a dream?

This is the reason why I recuperated from a flu virus? To fully appreciate the complexity of this season’s version of America’s Got Talent? I would rather been in my hazy, fevered state – it was less grueling. Well, not really, but you know what I mean.

So, here we go again. Let’s see what tonight’s show has in store for us. Maybe they will bring that mentalist back. He is the only act I remember – just crown him the winner now!

Do you have any favorites yet? Please share! I’m hanging in the comments section.

  1. I like that guy who did the ventriloquism with the iPad. There was also another stand up comic that was pretty good. I think this is the year of the stand up comedians. I didn’t watch tonight. I’ll have to catch it on Prime time on Demand maybe later tonight or tomorrow. Why are they back in Tampa? Didn’t they have to leave one city and relocate due to some sort of storm? I thought I heard something about that.


  2. Oh maybe that’s what happened Taymaro! Strange though. Anyway there was a beautiful dancer tonight. 16-year-old acrobatic dancer. Gorgeous and graceful. A real sweetheart. Plus a dancing troupe of young kids. Excellent as well. Maybe it will be a dancer’s year?


  3. I found clips of the acts you are talking about. Yes, they are great acts. Lindsey Norton, the acrobatic dancer is very good. She made me think of Mary Lou Retton. Her smile, her build, her square shoulders, her stance and her floor routine/dance routine was graceful and effortless. I give her a perfect 10. Could be “the one”.


  4. I liked the dancer too.
