    rou, I'm with you. . . I can't watch the danger acts either. Can't even believe people find them entertaining. I have last night's episode to catch up on. I do enjoy seeing the different types of acts displayed on this show, though sometimes even if something is interesting I'm not sure how they could make a whole show out of it.

    ^^^exactly! i feel that some of the "danger acts" are very much one-trick ponies.

    last night, it was the young men who really impressed me; in addition to Jonathan, there was the 16-year-old magician, the singer-songwriter that Heidi compared to John Mayer, and the man with the soprano (!) voice who proposed to his girlfriend.

    those children doing ballroom dancing leave me cold - they did last year in their big group The Miami Allstars, too. it squicks me no end to see kids dressed up in such an adult fashion.

    I totally freak out during the danger acts.

    I hate heights, so my palms sweat uncontrollably when I watch it. Then I spend the whole time looking through my fingers, pressing my body back into the couch and saying: why is he/she (yeah, I'm looking at you Alexandria the Great!) doing that?!?!? Oh my goodness! Why are they doing that?!?!?!

    I definitely love watching the show. (I only started watching for Howard and I'm glad I did because I really enjoy watching people perform well)

    I agree, rou. I liked Jonathon and the 16 year old magician too. In fact, I thought his magic trick was better than most. I will have to say I did enjoy the Mariachi band too.

    I know this kid was on AGT last year, but I'm still so impressed by this kid. He is a class act.

    I was telling my husband about him. What I can remember is he was the nicest, politest kid. Those people with the racist tweets should be ashamed.

    He is and continues to be a great kid. He took it all in stride and with poise.

    And he sang the heck out of the national anthem!

    I hate people sometimes. I live in OC, CA. When I read the OC register online, I practically go bat**** at the comments. If there is a HINT of the person not being white, the comments are horrendous. Or if a white person gets injured, the comments all blame illegals (code word for Hispanic around here I guess).

    whoa!

    did y'all hear the voice on that lovely redhead who rescues dogs?

    :D

    and that young man who did the dance that was basically, as Howard said, telling the story of The Matrix???

    wow, just WOW!!!

    and i DON'T like those domino-effect acts - what's the point??? it takes forever to set them up, but once it's gone, you have a lonnnnggggggg break to set up your next ... what, what do you call that????

    :goofy:

    and how about the lady on the unicycle????

    yeee hawwwww!!!!!

    :D

    OMG!!! the Military Wives choir!!

    Darn it! I was so busy with Bella Pupparella last night that I didn't get a chance to watch tv! I missed it. I heard Howard talking about it this morning on his show. I really want to see the show.

    Off to watch it on U-Verse.

    Loved the "matrix" dancer; cannot get over the move he made when it looked like his head fell off his shoulders. Thought the lady on the unicycle was amazing. Really enjoyed the Armed Forces Wives Choir.

    That was awesome. I got the chills.

    They were good!

    I can't believe the brother and sister duo are only 15 and 13, lol. I'm waiting for them to be exposed as much older, like at least 18 years old. I liked them a lot, too.
  • rouquinnerouquinne Posts: 13,498Registered Users Curl Dabbler
    when the operatic trio was shown before they went on stage and said that they had only met in person 2 days before and online a couple of months ago, i was prepared for it to be awful.

    i was completely blown away with how well they did!

    :D

    the young brother and sister and their band were amazing!!!

    the Irish-hip-hop fusion dancers freaked me out with their gas masks (what's *that* about), but their dancing really wow-ed me!

    :hello1:

    why did they put through that screechy child? i had to cover my ears because i wasn't close enough to the remote to get to the mute button!!!!

    :tongue2:

    rou, I wondered why they put through that screechy child too. She was awful.

    Loved the trio at the end. I figured if they were saved for the end of the show they would be good. Didn't expect opera though. Loved them.

    I will have to say though the comedian had me in tears from laughing. The line about his grandmother being a murderer cracked me up. I agree with Howard, besides being funny, he is quick and witty. His comeback line to Heidi was good. I just loved his stage presence!

    child DJs?????

    *snork*

    :roll:

    i'm not sure about some of the singers they're putting through this year...

    oh no, no, no.... not bandana guy!!!!

    :(

    ooooooh, Branden!!!! what a gorgeous voice!!!! i always love it when the audience are on their feet cheering for the person/people on the stage.

    :D

    this rock band were just great and i actually even like the young brothers rapping before them - and i don't like rap!

    and that blues singer with the beard - another phenomenal voice!

    interesting night all around tonight....

    2Unique was awesome. I totally wish I was 10 so that I can have a crush on the DJ. She is so stinkin' cute!

    I'm serious.

    I really liked last night's show. All of it. I really enjoyed myself. I can't even remember all of the acts I had so much fun watching.

    A lot of good opera singers this year. We know they all can't get through. Wonder who will.

    Loved the Molotov cocktail guy. That was quite the trick. Just catching the bottle alone on the stick was quite the trick.

    Coming from NW Pennsylvania where the first day of Buck season is almost as big a holiday as Christmas, I had to laugh at the whole conversation with the little 11 year old singer who wanted to buy a new hunting camp if she won the million dollars. Btw, she was quite the talented singer!

    i don't know about the rest of you, but for me, the only two people i would *definitely* put through would be Brendan James the opera singer and Collins Key the magician!

    after that, i'm just not sure: i like American Hitmen, but they didn't do well, Hype and Tellavision were less impressive this time around, and i think the comedy takes away from the 2 guys who do the strength act, the Kristef Brothers.

    after that, it's no from me for the solo 11-year-old singer, Anna Christine, the child dance act Fresh Faces, Alexandria the Great, Special Head, comedian Kevin Downey Jr. (NOT funny!) and PLEASE NEVER AGAIN to "screechy girl"!!!

    I have it dvr'ed and haven't watched it yet. Even so, I'm with you Rou -- no more screechy girl. I couldn't believe they put her through to begin with.

    Just watched. Loved Collins Key and the Kristef Brothers. Brendan was good but we already have Josh Groban. Think the little girl dancers were more of a dance recital. Hope Special Head, screechy girl (glad Howard X'ed them) and Kevin Downey (comedian) do not go through. Rest were just so-so to me. Toss up as to who I would put through as my other two acts.

  • rouquinnerouquinne Posts: 13,498Registered Users Curl Dabbler
    hmmmm.... not bad! at least i went 2 out of 4!

    :D

    i was really surprized at the last selection, though.

    I was 2 out of 4 also. I think those 2 are 2 of the best out of all the acts this year.

    Think of all the other acts Brendan James was probably a good choice. I was torn at who of the last two I would have put through. Guess in this case I would have thought she has a lot of years ahead of her because she is so young and the band doesn't; therefore, I was probably leaning more towards them.

    I was so glad in the very first elimination two of the acts I didn't want to see go any further were cut -- screechy girl and the comedian.

    maybe it just's me, but except for the opera singers most of tonight was a total washout.

    they're the only ones i'm pretty sure will be going through and maybe the sword-swallower, not sure about anyone else.

    And of course the opera.
