Maybe if the Blue Man Group kicked Penn & Teller in the balls for an hour! Now THERE's a show!
But that's the future of entertainment according to Idiocracy.
I fail to see the point in:
(a) "You're going to Vegas!"
(b) "Okay, we've had to shuffle a lot of plans around and use up some vacation time from work, but it's worth it - we're going to Vegas to perform on AGT!"
(c) "Welcome to Vegas - here's a plane ticket to send you back home; we sent through so many acts that we already know you won't make it through to the next round."
Also, isn't the next round after Vegas usually in LA somewhere? I thought I kept hearing people mention that they're being sent through to New York.
It has to be a trick because if all is at it appears and he had ever missed and shot her she would be dead. I think the trick is that it is not actually deadly dangerous at all. The arrows are probably plastic and rubber tipped. The crossbow must have little actual force (he fakes making it look like it is a real effort to ****) and the backdrop that he shoots into is easily pierced styrofoam. If he missed and shot her in the face or head it might sting, but wouldn't do any real damage.
I don't think it's a "trick" at all. There is plenty of space between the balloon and the woman, and if you have some idea what you are doing, a crossbow is very accurate at "short" distance.
Man the singers were all having a hard time last night.
There were a couple I didn't think were that good the first time. Flo Jo's daughter was OK but not great. If it wasn't for the family connections I don't think she'd have been advanced in the first place.
Nobody can hit the target 100% of the time. And if he misses a woman is shot in the face.
Only once though. Not 4 or 5 times.
The balloon is a good 2.5-3 feet above the woman. And you're assuming if he misses, he'll miss low and centered. The "rehearsal" footage they showed, he seemed to miss high.
All the woman has to do is make sure that the tip and tail of the arrow are lined up horizontally, and that the tip is above the tail vertically.
Plus he can always get another woman. It's not like he's getting hurt!
Listened to Stern this morning and he had a AGT producer on the show...the producer did say that we will see/hear what happens to the LIAR guy.
That guy should be sacked.
You know what I mean ...
I think it is kind of mean spirited to bring acts to Vegas and then kick them out before they perform.
Why spend the money to transport and house them?
Why let them rehearse for a performance that isn't going to happen?
I agree. You could hear it in the voice of one guy (I think it was the bald guy that was part of the balancing on his head act) when he said he was disappointed because they had worked hard to prepare for Vegas.
I agree as well especially since their act was better than some that went through.
Okay. I'll weigh in.
1. I think the Crossbow act is real (not a trick). He missed her by a good 3 feet. I actually think that trick is less dangerous than the one's where he's missing her face by a few inches. That would scare me more. From that distance, the girl would be able to clearly see if the arrow is pointing at her head...
2. I think it sucks that they brought those people all the way there and then sent them home, but it's far better than the alternative where they would have been kicked off in the first round. At least this way they get to say they made it to Vegas. No need to tell the rest...
I can't figure out how the mentalist guy did his trick. The only things I can think of is he used trick paper (since he gave it to Sharon) or he has trick mirror glasses since he looked away, but could see behind him with trick glasses. He's good, but he won't win since his act won't work with Vegas size audiences.
The escape artist obviously had trick locks. There's no way to pick locks that easily, especially with a belt buckle. The whole thing was staged since instead of immediately going for the lock holding the lid shut and letting him breathe, he went for the other locks first. I'll give him this, he can hold his breathe a long time and puts on a show.
The other "magician" with the boxes was awful.
The impressionist blew it.
Also why do they let through kids at all? There's no kid that can win the million dollar prize. If Jackie Evancho couldn't win, no kid will. Yes I know a 13 year old won first season, but that was before people knew about the show so there wasn't that much competition. Also she vanished off the face of the Earth. In any case putting through 5 year olds to Vegas is insulting to the adult contestants who get cut.
Actually I can't figure out why people with no or little talent even audition. That a few of them made it to Vegas boggles the mind.
Also I'm willing to bet they moved the finals to New York as part of the deal to get Howard.
The mind reader had to have read Sharon's paper when she handed it to him. That was the only reason there was for him to handle it. He may have switched the papers and palmed the one she wrote on. Notice she didn't open her paper and reveal what was written on it.
They showed the liar guy when they were telling people whether they were going to NY. He got a no.
Can you pick locks?
Thats a serious question and Im not trying to be a smart***.
At one point I was a lock picking enthusiast just as a hobby and because I thought it was cool to do. Picking Master Locks like that guy was using takes about 10 seconds. They arent difficult to open at all. In fact, of all the locks Ive ever successfully picked, they are by far the easiest. They may be tough under fire but they crumble when a pick is inserted.
