    Just finished the results show and it was pretty bad, so this is the summer hit I have heard about? Nick has a hard time reading the prompter, 4 out of 12 acts and they need an hour, glad it was recorded and I could buzz through. I don't know how much longer I will watch it, maybe just to see the room harp dude.

    I've always had issue with the AGT producers over-producting acts and adding stupid stuff like dancing girls - but I completely agree with you - the group dance crew was almost lost in the background visuals that were going on behind them. They were totally upstaged.

    I hate how they have to zoom in on everyone's face before announcing the winner. They even zoomed in on the dogs, though I have to admit, I thought that was amusing.

    As for the results, there were no surprises. Everyone I thought should go through, did.

    Cirque de Soleil was amazing last night. The guy in white balancing on his hand and the other guy with the four standing on top of him. What strength!

    This. He made it look so effortless. I didn't see one muscle twitch.

    I am content with America's decision on who went through, but not the judges pick.
    I'd like to know if Edon actually got fourth place in the voting. If not, then I say the dog ventriloquist got robbed. [​IMG]

    2 out of the 4 are singers. Ugh.
    I don't think the father and daughter sing well at all.

    I don't recall if I was watching Idol in the William Hung season, but aside from maybe showing up on the finale, he didn't get put through past the train wreck round, did he?

    I like Howie, but as an AGT judge, he's losing me. I'm not amused by his support of obviously putrid acts, and to put them through to future rounds just takes away a slot from someone else (who admittedly would probably be eliminated at the next stage anyway, but jeez all Pete!). I was slightly amused sometimes when it got on Piers' nerves, but that ship has sailed.

    And Howard's got to throttle back a bit on the "Here's what you should do" stuff. Telling the dog ventriolquist guy he should get a writer was good advice, but telling the dance group that 'that one' should do a solo, etc., is farther than I'd prefer to see that go.

    He never made it through the auditions. So if Big Barry is like William Hung, he should never have made it to Vegas, let alone to New York (Newark).

    There's lots of acts who should have never made it through and have zero chance of winning, like Big Barry and Little Star, but that happens every year.

    As for Howard, he shouldn't be telling people who to vote for. Actually he shouldn't be really saying much of anything at this point. Despite what he might think, the show isn't about him.

    Howard is this show's Simon now. He knows who signs the checks. ;)

    Also didn't like him saying they needed to make up a Cinderella story for the kid. Isn't that what the singing liar did; make up a story?

    I didn't like him telling the one guy that his material needed to be raunchier. This is a family show, not the Howard Stern show.

    That was nothing compared to what Piers used to do - how many times did he tell a group, "The soloist is great, but the rest of the group is terrible - I'll vote 'yes' if the group is willing to withdraw and let the soloist go through alone; otherwise it's 'no'"?

    But he never said the material should be. He used raunchy in describing the movie Ted.

    You either aren't paying attention or have a rather obvious bias. He said she needed to have a story around her act, as in on stage. Tell a story with her performance rather than just doing a dance routine.

    Yea, a 400 lb stripper and a guy getting kicked in the nuts are top notch family programming. :rolleyes:

    I forgot that he had said that. I was :eek: that he went there.

    The really funny part about that is right after he says it, it looks like Sharon turns to Howie and asks him if that was true and Howie starts telling her the story. They cut away from the wide shot a little too quickly to tell for sure, but that's what it looked like. I found it funny that it seemed as if that was the first time she had heard about it.
