Agreed. His slow-motion floating portion of the act was amazing. I love to see that kind of stuff. The contortionist stuff, not so much. As for the show overall, I really liked Howard as a judge, and I'm not the world's biggest fan (I don't dislike him either). I think I listened to him for a few months while in high school, but that's it. To me he didn't come off as overly harsh at all. In fact, I really enjoyed his seemingly genuine laughing and amazement at some of the acts.
