Performing Masterclass For America’s Got Talent Season 9: The Road To Radio City


This week, the judges have to whittle down this incredibly strong lineup of talent to 48 acts deemed the strongest for the live shows.

America’s Got Talent Season 9 has an exceptionally high calibre of acts in every discipline – from music to dance to comedy to magic and more.

So, how this is all going to play out on this week’s episode remains a mystery to me. The singers alone are an eclectic bunch – a multitude of genres and styles. And they are all superb.

So, if the weather is lousy in your neck of the woods, just flip the channel to NBC at 8:00 PM on Tuesday, July 15th and enjoy two hours of the best variety show on television – Season 9 of America’s Got Talent.

  2. Haven’t decided who I’m rooting for because there are so many talented acts. I am getting tired of the re-runs though. Can’t wait to see some new performances!


  3. Yes – what is with the reruns this year? This was supposed to be a new show this week. Talk about messing with the momentum!!!

    I am not sure how many acts they have before the Top 48 are selected.


  4. What I enjoyed about this week’s is the commentary on what was happening while they showed what happened. The highlight was the tribute to Nick and then the replay of his Mime act. Loved hearing what was happening in their ‘head’ while he was doing his thing.
