  1. Oh My!!! Last night was truly the best bunch of all the other 3 groups!!

    Eric Dittleman, the mind reader….awesome performance as usual!!!
    Olate Dog Act – to me …A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!!
    William Close – Spectacular!! Like a full orchestra -all instruments he made himself!!
    Lindsey Norton – just SO graceful!!
    Eric & Olivia Just alright

    To me …every acts seen just seems to confirm over and over that there truly won’t be any singers in the finals. I’ve not seen a singer in this show this year who’s talent is as extraordinary as some of the acts they have had this year, Maybe the good singers just don’t put any stock in AGT, because they certainly didn’t come out.

    What crossed my mind while I was watching though was …… some of these acts are only going to be eliminated not because they are not good …but because they have been paired with the wrong group. It would be so much different if we were picking the best dance act but we’re not. We’re picking between a dancer and a musician , and between a Meriachi singer over a mind reader

    All and all … I loved last nights show and who my fingers are crossed for are Dittleman and Close.


  2. BrotherKarl – wasn’t that a terrific show? I suspect most of the Wild Card picks will come from this group of performers.

    I loved all your picks but was not crazy over the singing duo. Also, the gentleman who drew images in sand and little Sebastien the Mariachi singer were spectacular.

    Going to be a tough night, but, hopefully, the Wild Card show will give us an opportunity to see some of these acts again.


  3. Hey Rosanne

    It was awesome!! And regarding the duo …thats why I I had them at the bottom and said they were alright. Not alright as “good” , but just alright as “nothing to scream about”. It was almost kind of sad.

    All while I was watching the show I was thinking ‘the wild card act is going to be picked from this group because there are more than 4 here who should be o the finals”. And I didn’t mention Sebastian or Unity in Motion but you can add them both right on the list.
    So many great acts!! I was kind of thinking that Spencer Horseman (Escape artist from last week would be a wild card bur after last night …. I don’t know


  4. Hey MCL

    Looks like a spammer is getting into your blog to advertise “Hopper DVRs” .

    The viewing voter’s are really getting it right on AGT, and after the You Tube auditions next week, I;m going to start making my early predictions. I can probably name 3 already that I’m pretty sure will be in the top 10 …but I’ll hold off because I don’t really know how many contestants will be picked from the other auditions. I also don’t remember how many they will be voting off a week. Its exciting though!!

    Two of my very personal favorite acts are Eric Dittleman and and William Close. Will they win? Hmmmmmm
