That much I knew. I thought there was something else going on in his backstory.
I dont think so... he's the one who's wife tricked him in to coming.
He's put out 4 albums.. Im surprised they let him on the show.
Regardless of his story or his credentials, he sucked miserably. There are very few spots and they should be earned, not given away to someone who did as poorly as he did. I am not a fan of any shows that lets the American public make the final decision. I'd love to see a season of a something like this where the public is either left out or their vote is weighted with the judges. Marty getting through makes me want to stop watching.
Which is worse? If Marty had not made it through, there's the chance that "B double O T Y" would have.
Marty deserves a spot way more than those guys.
I'd rather sit through BOOTY than MARTY.
For what this show is SUPPOSED to be, I would MUCH rather see Marty Brown sent through to the next round than to see someone who's main purpose for being there was to be a one-hit wonder. Neither one of them is going to win this thing, but I would much rather see Marty again than the other guys.
Full disclosure, I had already seen enough of B double O T Y that I actually fast forwarded through their performance this time, which again just tells me I'd rather see Marty make it through.
I find it ridiculous that an act consisting of a guy putting on a ball cap and taking it off again could have made it onto television, and then put through to Radio City Music Hall!?!?
Actually, I wish he was put through even though he made a mistake. He has charisma, something that the judges noted that the guy who got run over by a lawnmower while on a bed of nails didn't have.
Charisma, Schmarisma. When all he did was play with a ball cap (ok, he danced a little, too), sorry but I didn't really even see why he made it to RCMH. Through the auditions, I can see that. Beyond that, nope - just more of the same thing. Glad he's gone.
What he's doing is a lot more than just playing with a ball cap. That statement would be like saying jugglers are just playing with balls or clubs. What he does takes a lot of skill and precision. That being said, I agree that he shouldn't have gone through. I've seen people WAY better at this (at least in a natural environmentmaybe without the pressure of the stage he would be more proficient). I laughed out loud when they showed the interview with his sister where she said something like No one else out there does what my brother does. Now that's a big load of bull. He probably runs with a whole crew that does those tricks. It's happening all over the city.
OK, 3 of them have a 'known' label behind them.. I was wondering if they were the analog of vanity books.
Plus, is there a rule that they have to be amateurs? I don't think so. (Though I admit I think it's "The Voice" that I'm thinking of that had one person that was previously on Idol.)
I agree with you, but ironically, I know people who juggle at least as well as any of the jugglers who have shown up on the show, and they just do it for fun. (Though one person I know a bit was somehow involved with one of the AGT juggling acts a few years ago, but I think he was actually offstage or something weird like that.)
I only do 3 ball and 6 club (total) passing, so I'm nowhere near what they show on this show, but as I said, I used to routinely see FAR better juggling than on this show, just at a weekend juggling club.
John Wing is one of the finalist comedians, and he has been a professional stand-up for 33 years, appearing on Leno's "Tonight Show" 6 times.
I somehow missed an episode and some results. Is that shadow group still in the mix? They made a "people wall" and a helicopter during their first performance... haven't seen them since?
I assume you're talking about Catapult. They were advanced straight to Radio City Music Hall, and one of its members tweeted that they will be in the fifth semi-final (performing on August 20).
Nothing from last night's show? I dont know what to think at this point about whos going on. Some really good acts last night.
Some really good acts got sent home, but that was mainly because there were a lot of good acts last night. It's a shame how it worked out as many of the acts that went home this week were much better than the ones that won last week.
Youre right... I was really pulling for Brandon and Savannah.. I thought they were great and their performances have been tremendous. I was also surprised that Deanna DellaCioppa was eliminated as the judges loved her performance. Sadly I feel like the whole American Military Spouses Wives got through because of the whole USA USA thing. They werent that great and havent impressed me with any of their performances. Plus half of them are very pregnant. Probably be a quartet by the time finals rolls around.
I dont have a problem with The Chicago Boyz... they missed a LOT of spots and one guy broke his leg but the judges gave them a pass which is kind of surprising. Ive always thought it was ridiculous when the judges call people on missing spots in high flying, dangerous acts. When you're flying through the air, on a bike, etc, its hard to be 100% perfect every time.
Sad night and its a shame the way AGT stacked the talent. I hope they have a wildcard show so some of the acts that deserved to go through can come back.
Kenichi Ebina was amazing.
Jason Derullo does the hat thing better than Kid the Whiz.
I agree with nearly everything you said. I think the Producers are pushing the Military Wives by giving them the prime spot. If they weren't military wives, I doubt they would even made it to RCMH.
I would have loved to seen the Mitsi school of dancing move forward. They were so good. But they were in a stack semi-final. I am not sure how the producers determine the acts on each show, but it is a shame that, many times, some of the better acts go home only because they were on the wrong show.
And I'm shocked the Chicago Boys got through. The Mitsi dancers were orders of magnitude better.
