    Pretty good, the first act needs his head examined though... :D I like the new judges so far, they keep Howie from passing on goofy acts, at least they did last night.

    That Strange Head guy really freaked me out. Great illusion.

    It is done similar to this (spoiler alert):

    Here is how the do it in India. It is a more permanent setup there though:


    "Special Head" seemed to 'anchor' his walking stick into a spot on the rug when he put it down, and the smoke bomb was designed to allow him to 'unhook' himself and the collapsible seat without being obvious.

    Also, has AGT always started with shows just once a week? I thought it started in the standard twice-a-week format, but the next episode isn't on until the 11th.

    It switches to a twice a week format when the voting starts.

    Personally I'm too busy to watch a 2 hour program once a week, let alone twice. I did a lot of fast forwarding for the first episode. I did manage to catch Special Head and the 10 year old piano player/singer.

    They seem to be primarily showing highlights. I'm guessing they are rushing through auditions.

    Watched last night. Thought Mel B and Heidi were fine. But Howard (and I love Howard) standing up for some of these acts drives me nuts.

    Hated the orchestra/choir. And I hate that song even more. I would have X them immediately. And putting through B-Double-O-T-Y?!!! Really?!!

    I think Heidi and Mel B are great.
    I am quite frankly happy to see Osborne gone.

    I thought the orchestra act was great.

    Heidi always leers at the guys without shirts.

    The 10 year old girl who sang House of the Rising Sun was phenomenal!

    Her voice reminded me of Alica Keys. I'd love to hear her sing Fallin.

    I liked several acts.

    The snake guy had me on the edge of my seat.

    Special Head was interesting, and creepy!

    The 10 year old girl was phenomenal!

    Didn't care for the act with the guy eating the pepper, but did like Howie eating it.

    I like the new judges, although what happens in case of a tie? With 3 judges, there was no chance of a tie.

    They explained during the show that you need 3 votes to proceed.

    Thanks! I FF'd through everything but the performances and judging.

    I wonder what will happen if it's a 2-2 split in a vote for the final advancing spot (i.e. "top three, and the judges choose from #4 and #5"). My guess is, whoever got more viewer votes advances.

    So far I think Mel B has had some pretty good points/opinions, but haven't noticed Heidi bringing anything to the party.

    Heidi has good points too. Just her points aren't as well developed as Mel B's.

    I thought the dancers who made figures with their shadows were entertaining. The same goes for the "comedian" who didn't tell jokes.

    I didn't like the song the orchestra was singing, but I like that idea. Hope they do other songs I like.

    Personally, I'd rather not hear a 10 year old singing about falling in love or yearning for a lover or anything that implies "experience". There are so many other songs which would be more appropriate from such a talented youth.

    But that's just my opinion. :)
