America’s Got Talent Seven 7: Vegas Week

This week there are three days of America’s Got Talent at 8:00pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

At the top of Vegas Week the judges have separated the acts into two primary groups:
Judges Favorites: are the acts that the judges believe have the best chance to succeed on the live shows
Standbys: are the acts the judges are unsure about and will see them if there are slots available after the Judges Favorites have gone through

Anyone whose name is not found under the two groups mentioned above they would not perform in Vegas and would be going straight home that day. The catch is with that though is that some acts that do not have a chance to prove their worth at all while there will be some others that were given a free pass to the Live Shows in New York. The acts that we will definitely see in the Live Shows include:
William Close: Earth Harp
Olate Dogs: Dog Act
David “the Bullet” Smith: Human Cannonball

While the Judges Favorites are performing the Standbys are required to sit in the audience and watch what happens. What I found to be interesting is that people are crumbling left and right. I am not used to seeing that for America’s Got Talent, but a major part of that could be how the show is being edited to evoke maximum drama within a one-hour show.

On Wednesday / Thursday I will post who made the Top 48 Acts (well now 45 since 3 acts got a free pass to New York) that are moving on to the Live Shows in New York, I will also attempt to breakdown who came from which group / category so we can see how they all panned out.

Wordspit, the illest Impresses AGT Judges and Audiences in New York Auditions

One of the best America’s Got Talent acts of the night? Wordspit, the illest! At least in my opinion. And from what the AGT judges said, I know I’m not in the minority for thinking that.

In case you missed it…Here’s the audition:

I love that they actually have instruments involved. I think this is a highly talented group of people.

So what’s the story behind Wordspit, the Illest?

Well, Wordspit is the main artist in the group. He was born in Brooklyn and discovered a love for writing lyrics in the third grade. Since then, he has continue to grow in his talent and eventually combined his talents with those who auditioned with him on America’s Got Talent. Wordspit has recently gained more fame when his talent was featured in McDonald’s television and radio campaign. There is quite a bit of Wordspit’s music (as well as Wordspit, the illest!) floating throughout the Internet, and I think this is definitely not the last we will see of him. What did you think of them?
