  1. Kenichi Ebina – WOW Fun, creative… blew me away!

    Mitsi Dancing School – I can see this as part of a Vegas show

    American Military Spouses Choir – sounded great (better than their audition) Will get a lot of votes based on their story

    David “The Cobra Kid” Weathers – creeped me out. Why would anyone want to do this. He had such an adrenalin rush when he was done, but crazy?

    Deanna DellaCioppa – showed confidence and looked like she was enjoying herself, but don’t think she will get through.


  2. Kenichi – have to second the WOW, he is original, he is fun, and is really good.
    I am sad Mitsi Dancing School didn’t get through, they are really good.


  3. Yes, Kitty, they really were. I was disappointed as well. So much talent this year, though. Hopefully, they can use the exposure the attain future success.


  4. I hope so. I think people who were in this particular group were a bit at a disadvantage since there were many more talented acts than in other groups. For example, I think yesterday’s wasn’t nearly as competitive.
