Performing MasterClass Discussion For America’s Got Talent Season 10: The Top 10 Finalists

Picture Credit: America’s Got Talent

Look at that picture. How did we even get here?  Some of the acts are just plain ridiculous.  The talent ran so deep this year and this is what we are stuck with?  Excuse the English grammar but I am seriously furious. 

And all that testosterone. Not one female among this group?  This show is losing it. 

Howard Stern basically dissed classical crossover singer Daniella Mass by saying there was no audience  for her brand of music. 

Really?  REALLY?  Then how would you explain the phenomenon known as Top 2 AGT Finalist Jackie Evancho? Just how?   And, Daniella was a more refined singer than Jackie.  Her technique was on the money. 

Oh well, I am rooting for the Craig Lewis Band and Oz Perlman. I also would love to see comedian Drew Lynch in the finale.  The rest?  It’s a crapshoot at my end. 

So, there you have it!  My in-depth synopsis of what to expect on this week’s show. Ha!  Excuse me if my mood is sour. I was expecting so much more from Season 10. So much!

America’s Got Talent airs on Tuesday, September 15th and Wednesday, Spetember 16th at 8:00 PM on NBC.  I will be away from my virtual desk this week, so hop into the comments section and give me updates if you can.
