    I just watched it again and I'm almost certain he's looking out from under the tape now. There's a fairly good gap (thank you freeze frame) by his nose that looked large enough to see through to me.

    Also, if you watch it in slow-motion you can see where he pulls the mask away from his eyes when he is energetically wrapping his head in the duct tape. The sticky of the tape appears to grab the rest and then he pulls sharply outward away from his eyes when he does the wrap.

    Even if he could see out the bottom of the tape, I'm not sure when he actually had a chance to look at the papers. They were given to him face down and he never flipped them over before putting them up over his head.

    Go back a few pages. He used thin paper and a thick marker, so the drawings easily bled through.

    That second Tampa show (6/12) was horrible. No great acts, horrible ending.

    The pop and lock brothers or whatever is their name was a great act and they did not get enough air time in my opinion. Lindsey wasn't horrible either and I am calling it now, Big Barry to win it all!

    this is my first season watching (because of Howard) I don't think I've seen an act that could keep me entertained longer than 5 minutes. What kind of acts normally win this competition?

    The magic act with the yellow motorcycle appearing was so amazingly poorly done I thought it was a joke at first. The front tire is straight, yet the handlebars are turned all the way left. If you watch closely he opens the drapes too early and the model is still swinging the back half of the one dimensional motorcycle to meet with the one dimensional front half of the motorcycle with the messed up steering. Let alone the creepy ghetto eyeliner on the magician, this whole act was a miserable POS.

    It's also completely lame to show the feet of the girls while they struggle to open the sides of the box and swing the "motorcycle" into place.

    Spoilered in case someone hasn't watched:

    From Wikipedia:

    Season 1 11-year old singer Bianca Ryan, and the runners-up were clogging group All That, and musical group The Millers.

    Season 2 Terry Fator, a ventriloquist who is also a singer, being named the winner, and singer Cas Haley as runner-up.

    Season 3 Neal E. Boyd, an opera singer, was named the winner

    Season 4 Kevin Skinner, an American country music singer, was named the season's winner.

    Season 5 Michael Grimm, an American singer/songwriter, was named the winner.

    Season 6 Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr., a Frank Sinatra style singer, was named the winner of season six. Dance group Silhouettes was runner-up.

    And in season 5,
    young (to put it mildly - she was 10 at the time) classical singer Jackie Evancho (who won that year's "YouTube's Got Talent" popular vote) finished second

    It's a pitty that this is the first season you've watched.

    From a talent perspective, this is by far the lamest season so far.

    I've watched every season except season 1. In every other season, there were several acts in the early audition process that made me say, "Wow, that's really something".

    In this season. No such acts. None. The "best" acts this season are largely poor copies of some of the good acts from previous seasons.

    There has got to be some kind of trick involved with the crossbow guy shooting at the woman.

    Horse has got to have some kind of medical problem. I wonder if he has ever had a doctor examine his testicles. Was he really towing with his scrotum?

    I love the ventriloquist with the dog!

    As usual some of the judges favorites (the 5 year old rapper kid) shouldn't even be there, yet they sent home better acts. Another example is the human cannonball. They send him directly to the live show, but where can he go from his original act? I think he'll get eliminated early on in the audience voting.


    I don't see why since the woman gives the guy aiming directions. As long as she is accurate and he doesn't move it's not that tricky.

    And if he hits her, it's her fault because she is telling him where to aim! So he can live on guilt-free!

    When I go to Vegas, I can either see the Blue Man Group, Penn & Teller, or a guy who gets kicked in the balls for an hour.

    Yeah.

    I don't get the entertainment value in him, at all.
