Performing MasterClass Discussion For America’s Got Talent Season 10: Judges Cuts With Marlon Wayans


 America's Got Talent, Craig Lewis Band Boy, Season 10 of America’s Got Talent is dragging on and on and on. This time last year,  the live shows were in full swing.  And, it seems, that the judges are aiming for a Top 36 this season versus a Top 48 in previous seasons. 

However, since only 14 acts have advanced so far, I am assuming that, with tonight and next week’s judges cuts, another 14 will advance. So that leaves room for 8 more acts to be selected in a Wild Card Show. 

Now, this might be me babbling on here or wishful thinking on my part but I hope beyond hope the Wild Card show is a done deal.  I want to see the return of that little Mariachi Girl, Alondra Santos. It is a travesty that she was eliminated by the judges.  

That being said, I thought that Michael Buble was an excellent Guest Judge last week. He was entertaining and honest but always supportive. His Golden Buzzer selection, the Craig Lewis Band, was a perfect choice. And, it made more sense than Neil Patrick Harris’s selection of Piff The Magic Dragon two weeks ago.  I am still reeling from this choice.  It made no sense to me. 

This week, comedian Marlon Wayans lends his comedic talent to the show and assists the judges in their quest for the Top 36.  This show will air on Tuesday, July 28th at 8:00 PM on NBC.

Then, on. Wednesday, July 29th, America’s Got Talent will air a 10th anniversary celebratory show, focusing on the best acts discovered via AGT. Former judge, Piers Morgan will grace your screens once again as interviews will be conducted with all the judges and some of the past winners.   

This should be a great show. My DVR is set to go. How about you?
