  2. All is well jrzgrl. Nice to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by. !!


  3. My favorite was Tyra’s golden buzzer dance team. They were great, probably the best dance crew I’ve seen on AGT

Simon has forgotten that we remember his negative comments in American Idol about Jennifer Hudson, Mandisa, etc.

  6. I used to really enjoy this show, but the acts are not very appealing to me this year!
