It. Is. Tuesday! And that means only one thing!

America’s Got Talent is set to bring you more excellent and innovative talent interspersed with the zany antics of Howard Stern and Howie Mandel.

And we can’t forget host extraordinaire, Nick Cannon. Remember when he donned a disguise and spooked Howie with his mime impression? Good stuff!

Last week, I particularly loved the The Willis Clan and their tragic backstory. I was confused as to how one could raise a family this large in these tough economic times, but I understand now.

I am happy that this family was justly rewarded for the horrendous tragedy of losing so many family members in such an unjust and senseless manner. Such incredible sadness. Hard to fathom.

However, what a legacy these grandchildren are to the memory of their deceased grandparents, aunts and uncles.

Their bluegrass arrangement of “My Favorite Things” was outstanding. And welcoming. We never see family groups anymore and I am loving it.

While you are waiting for this week’s show to begin, have a look at the video here. or attached below this article.

The show begins at 8:00 PM on NBC on Tuesday, June 10th.

Comments are now open for business.

  1. There was some wonderful talent on tonight’s episode. I especially loved the Sons of Serendip. But I also loved the young girl with the anxiety disorder, the last young man who sang and played piano, and also the magician who poured water, sugar, etc. from one hand to the other. The man who strangely dressed as a baby also had a wonderful voice. This is going to be a good summer!!!


  2. Louise. I had company tonight and missed the show. It sounds wonderful. Thank you for the feedback. What a great summer of entertainment.


  3. I laughed all the way through the lady’s comedy routine “Men are like cats – Women are like dogs”. The magician that Louise mentioned was VERY good as well.
