Well, the first night of America’s Got Talent, Season 7, has come to an end. What did you think? Was all the worry about Howard Stern justified, or did he win you over, even just a little bit? How about that earth harp–I’d say that was pretty incredible. Overall, I was impressed with several of the acts but hung my head in shame for others. If you follow PureAGT on twitter, you’ll have seen my live commentary. But in case you missed it, here’s some thoughts from the night:
That first act…was ridiculous. As I said, where’s the magic? If my son was old enough to know what was going on, I would have been covering his eyes.
Bird lady…cat lady…They are all the same, right? I felt kind of bad for her though. She seemed to be genuine.
Okay, William Close and his earth harp is going to go far. I’m calling it now. I have honestly never seen anything like that instrument, and he totally owned it. The judges were smart for putting him through.
I liked this. It was different. I’d like to see something different win this year.
Okay, this girl captured my heart already. She was hilarious. I loved how she asked Howard if he was going to cry (after she asked about his dad). And since her dad and her already have 600 million views on one of their YouTube videos (according to her, of course), I could see them going far.
This was some nice comedic relief for the night. I really felt like I connected with Howard on a deeper level. The other night I had a nightmare about being stuck in an elevator. I’m glad celebrities have similar fears.
I just thought the whole Howard Jr. thing was funny. Too bad the kazoo boys didn’t make it…Okay, I didn’t really think they had a chance.
Simply Sergio. That’s all I’m going to say. No words can accurately depict this act.
Howard hit that act right on the head with this comment. It was definitely a tear-jerker. I’m excited to see where this father/daughter act went.
There were a few comments that Howard made that made me roll my eyes, but overall, he’s being true to his word and just being brutally honest. It was nice to see a that he has a soft side, though, like when he went and hugged Sergio. Precious. I’m excited for what’s to come the rest of the season. What was your favorite act of the night? Is there any real contenders so far?
