A Night to Tweet About: AGT 7 Auditions — San Francisco Edition

It was another night of sometimes talented, sometimes disturbing, and sometimes just plain confusing acts on AGT. There was a lot of activity on Twitter, and I had a lot of fun interacting with other fans around the country. So once again, here’s some of my thoughts from throughout the night.

Last night, after the premiere, my husband looked up an act he was shown awhile back from Ukraine’s Got Talent. Check it out here. Pretty incredible right? Anyways, he mentioned to me that he would love to see something like that on this season. And he got his wish. I really enjoyed the sand art act, especially with the music it was set to.

‘Nuff said. I had a feeling it wasn’t going to be an impressive act, but I believe in giving everyone a fair chance. I’m glad that Nick came out and helped her have a “second chance.” Hopefully that eased the blow of totally blowing an audition on national television.

Did anyone else’s heart drop when the juggler dropped his pins? I would beat myself up about that forever. I’m glad they let him through, though I don’t he’ll make it very far.

Just like Howard Stern, opera isn’t necessarily my cup of tea. But I really did find this guy to be incredible. Even if I wouldn’t ever listen to opera for fun, I really liked him.

Was anyone else absolutely shocked by this act? I thought Granny G was going to go out there and sing a song from something like My Fair Lady. Definitely NOT. But I suppose with a name like Granny G, I should have been expecting it. It was pretty hilarious, and I’m all about fulfilling your dreams, even in the latter years of life. More power to her.

“Kotton Kandy” was definitely a character, and I have no doubt that he has a successful street performing career. I liked his attitude though. We could all do to have a little more confidence like him.

I love all the one-liners that come from the judges. This was one of my favorites of the night.

Tim Hockenberry was one of my favorites of the night. I could tell from his pre-story that he was going to be good. He reminded me a bit of Louis Armstrong. I love that he has overcome his past (and was his child not the cutest little baby?!)

I don’t remember exactly what the name of the band was, but they sang “Toxic” by Brittany Spears. For one thing – I hate that song. But not as much as I disliked this girl’s voice. Please explain to me why she got through?

This guy is why I watch the show. I hope he does well. His contortionist moves were a bit disturbing, but cool nonetheless. The judges were right on with all their comments. Alonzo really seemed genuine, and I do hope he goes far. It sounds like he has had a very, very tough life.


Well, that’s it for tonight. What was your favorite act?
