We’ve been having a lot of discussion going on about the various episodes of America’s Got Talent. I’m still watching the show, but I figured I’d post the thread for other people to start discussing the show. I’ll add my review of tonight’s semi final performance show once I’m done watching. One thing is certain. I was right that tonight’s episode of America’s Got Talent is packed with at least twice as much talent as last week.
Time for my thoughts:
Barbara Padilla – Absolute lock for the finals. I’m not a huge fan myself, but I’ll admit that her performance tonight was her best yet. She’s also smart (or the producers are) for her to sing Ave Maria which is a special song for many people. She’s also got the cancer vote which I think is much larger than anyone would probably think. I’m not sure that’s the most politically correct thing to say, but I think that a lot of cancer survivors want to help other cancer survivors. That’s not a knock. I do the same thing with people I relate to. Either way, you can guarantee she’ll be in the finals.
Drew Stevyns – His song was a bit disappointing for me. I love him last time. He does seem to have the potential star quality in his performance. Although, I think in tonight’s performance he was a little too concerned about the camera. I’m not sure he’s a superstar, but I’ll admit that I’d love to hear him sing some more songs.
EriAm Sisters – If you’ve read for a while, you know I’m a huge fan of these sisters. They did have a slow start to their song, but once they got going it was amazing. In fact, it was the first time I got chills this season. There talent is amazing. How old is the youngest girl again? Oh, that’s right – 12. Seriously amazing voice. Too bad she looks older than 12.
Erik and Rickie – They should have stuck with a nice fast song where they could rock it out like they did in their audition. It just seemed slow and labored to me. Still cute as all get out. Plus, their interview section was the best of the entire show.
FootworKINGz – The producers ruined this act for me. I don’t think anyone can seriously think that FootworKINGz would have chosen to do power rangers. If they did, then I apologize to the producers, but I’ll never believe that power rangers would have been on these dancers minds. The song aside, the boots they wore were horrible also. Didn’t show very well the footworking they did. Horrible outcome for me.
Hairo Torres – He’s unique, but I’m pretty sure he didn’t do enough to go on. I wonder if he’ll head over to SYTYCD. He’d be great in the auditions of SYTYCD.
Jeffrey Ou – Wrong song. Not enough energy. The story of him getting a girlfriend was priceless. I’m quite sure he doesn’t give a rip about winning this show. He got himself a lady thanks to AGT. Beautiful!!
Lawrence Beamen – I thought this was his best performance. Maybe Piers likes the old school stuff, but I didn’t. I also can’t help but wonder what religious group he was with as a kid. I think he’s almost as close a lock as Barbara. I’d never pay to go see him, but he’s OK for me.
Mario and Jenny – What were they thinking? Bad Tapping. Bad Drumming. No danger. Pole dancing. Just all wrong. Worst performance they could have ever done.
Recycled Percussion – This group rocked it. I think the concept is actually the best part. I’m not sure the 4 guys are going to be the best to perform the concept. However, I could see a show like this in Vegas. It’s like a mix of Blue Man Group and Stomp. 2 popular Las Vegas shows.
Some great acts are going to be sent home tomorrow.
