America’s Got Talent 2010 Tour Dates and Locations

As you’ve probably heard on the show, the winner of America’s Got Talent will be going on a tour of the US. In the past, the winner has usually taken along a couple of the other finalists to perform with them. Plus, I’m amazed at the list of tour locations that they’re going to be performing. I’m from Las Vegas myself and The Colosseum at Caesars Palace is one of the nicest theaters in Las Vegas. It’s where Celine Dion performs. Seriously, that’s Big TIME!

Ok, enough of that chatter. You can see the full list of tour locations below or head straight over to ticketmaster to buy your tickets now.

Vote for the Next 4 America’s Got Talent 2010 Semifinalists

Tonight’s show was pretty interesting to say the least. I don’t know about you guys, but it flew by. The variety of the acts was interesting and I really didn’t know what I was going to see next. It was just good entertainment. Well, apart from one act….which will remain nameless since I don’t necessarily want to influence your voting.

Now it’s time to vote for America’s Got Talent 2010 semifinalists. You can vote for 4 acts total that you think will make it through to the next round.

Best America’s Got Talent Harmonica Player

This season of America’s Got Talent has had a theme of harmonica players. It seems like the producers must have put that theme together as part of the storyline for the show. However, none of the harmonica players on this season of America’s Got Talent are the best harmonica players that have been on AGT.

The best harmonica player ever on America’s Got Talent was definitely the Miller Brothers (the little brother playing harmonica). Here’s just a sample video to show you what I mean:

So, the older brother isn’t a very good singer, but that harmonica blew me away the first time I heard it and even now. It almost sounds like an electric guitar. AMAZING!! Too bad a little girl named Bianca Ryan got in their way on the show.

World’s Got Talent Being Planned by Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell isn’t my favorite person in the whole world, but it’s hard to argue with his ability to produce a TV show. Plus, he has an amazing skill as a judge on TV shows too. So, I was completely intrigued when I saw this article suggesting that Simon Cowell is planning a new TV show called “World’s Got Talent.” Sounds like the perfect spin off to his America’s Got Talent / Britain’s Got Talent shows.

Here’s some details from the article:

The show will feature acts from over 80 countries, with the winner receiving a prize of up to £1m.

A source told The Sun: “This has been Simon’s dream. It will be the biggest reality show the world’s seen. There is a huge wealth of talent out there. The best acts cross language barriers.

ITV and NBC are said to be involved and the show is planned to be staged at the Royal Albert Hall.

This could be really fun to watch. I can think of a lot of acts I’d like to see on this show!
