MCL Picks From America’s Got Talent Season 10 Week Three Show With Videos


 Golden Buzzer, America's  Got Talent, 

Here are my picks for Week 3 on America’s Got Talent Season 10.  Did they jive with yours? Comment below. 

DJ Smart, Freelusion Dance Company, Dancer:  Uh Oh!  Competition from last week’s act, Freckled Sky.  And he was excellent.  I think Freckled Sky  has the edge, especially since Howard Stern gifted them with the Golden Buzzer.  He danced with beauty, grace and emotion and the lighting effects were just spectacular. I loved the magical appearance of the female dancer at the end. A really mesmerizing performance.  

Grade: A. MCL Prediction: Will advance to the Live Shows

Alondra Santos, Mariachi Singer:  This talented 13-year-old singer brought a wonderful new singing style to America’s Got Talent.  More important, she is a sweet, humble, gracious young lady who is blessed with an extraordinary talent. I loved her to the moon and back.  She has a beautiful voice with a dark yet sparkling timbre. And she brings so much personality to her singing performance. What a little star!   Amazing. Simply amazing! 

Grade: A. MCL Prediction: Will advance to the Top 10.  Please!  She has to!  

Scott Heierman, Comedian: Well, this guy came out dressed in drag and just brought down the house with his self-deprecating humor. Loved him. This guy will never get old because his shtick is totally unique.  Plus he is a sweetheart. I love you princess!  

Grade: A. MCL Prediction: Top 10. He is a unique comedic entirety. 

Michael John, Magician:  He invited Mel B up on stage to help with his act. It was a card trick and a great one at that. Kind of crazy, actually. Check out the video below. Then he did another trick that sort of blew my mind.  He is a great guy with serious skills. Check out the video below.

Grade: A. MCL Prediction: Top 12. OMGoodness. He is crying. What a sweetheart. This is a dream for him so it is up to us to keep the dream alive.  

The Los Angeles Children’s Orchestra, Musicians: These children played instrument and danced and pranced to Eleanor Rigby.  It was a great act. I have a soft spot in my heart for kids so I had to acknowledge their dedication  and talent. Kudos to their director who organized this fantastic group.

Grade: B. MCL Prediction: Live shows but will probably be eliminated early in the live performances.

Rhythmic Circus, Singers/Dancers/Instrumentalists: They were not given a whole lot of air time but what I saw I absolutely loved!   Not fair AGT!  want to see more!  This group looks like a whole lot of fun. Very entertaining and thoroughly engaging!  

Grade A. MCL Prediction: They better make a couple of live shows or I will be masterclass pouting here.  They are included in the video collage below.

Duo Vladimir, Acrobats: Okay these guys freaked me out in a good way. A balancing act with knives?  I am still shaking here. Crazy, crazy. It was flawlessly executed and timed with precision. Yikes!  It was a brilliant act. Check it out below!

Grade A. MCL Prediction: Definitely the live shows – a couple of them. Hopefully in the Top 10

Sharon Irving, Singer:  Golden Buzzer Time, everyone. This week courtesy of Mel B.  And well- deserved, I must say!  This fabulous singer brought down the house with her soulfully rich, beautifully expressive voice. Performing Take Me To Church, she incorporated her own style, her own signature to this song.   Loved her. Loved her honesty and her devotion to the music and lyric. 

Grade A. MCL Prediction: Top 10 and, quite possibly, Top 6.
