We are moving closer to those crucial Las Vegas rounds where the acts will be whittled down to the Top 48 live shows.

However, we still have some exciting acts to see as America’s Got Talent showcases the best acts discovered in Los Angeles (for the third time) and New Orleans.

I wish AGT would stay put in one city and showcase all the talent in that city instead of flipping back and forth from week to week. It’s confusing. It seems like Los Angeles has been a hubbub for talent so perhaps they didn’t want to unveil all their cards on one episode.

And this week, this show airs on Tuesday AND Wednesday at 9:00 PM on NBC. Yay! More zany antics from Howard, Howie and Nick! Plus the talent! Love watching all the different styles of talent.

Are you excited about this season? I am.

Forte is a real find and I am sure they will be in for the long run.

In fact, the talent is strong in all performing genres and that is unusual for this or any show. The voting will make the difference. All the contestants are quickly accumulating their fan bases in anticipation for the live shows where voting will be key to their success on AGT.
