One Direction is on America’s Got Talent? How did this happen? OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!

Oh ya – Simon Cowell manages them. And produces America’s Got Talent. What were the odds?

I could care less, but you can bet that I am in a teensy tiny minority out there in TV Land. I am a tad too old for boy groups – unless they sound as good as Forte did last evening.

Now, that kind of boy group I can appreciate. And, they sing live! New concept out there in the music biz.

Okay, I better stop before I start offending the 1D fans. I have to admit these kids are very cute.

So, who is going to advance to the Top 12? I am, of course, rooting for Forte and, pretty much everyone out there – fans and media alike – know that they brought it in a huge way last night.

So, I am hoping that, along with Forte, Collins Key, Jonathan Allen, Taylor Williamson, Duo Resonance and Angela Hoover move on. Those are the acts that -for me – shone the brightest on Tuesday evening.

It all begins at 9:00 PM Eastern, so time to pop the popcorn and settle in for an hour of great entertainment. Also, Season 3 winner of The Voice, Cassadee Pope, will be performing as well.

Catch you in the comments section.

Also, don’t think his prediction of Forte winning will help them. Howie’s thought that Forte has ‘solidified their career did make me happy. I also liked Cassidy Pope’s comment that it doesn’t matter if you win or not it is how hard you work after the competition is over. It will be interesting to see what happens


  2. Didn’t like Howie comments either – he shouldn’t have said what he did, and he may have hurt Forte.

    Interesting, how they downplay their background on this show.
