    Dog had a regular jaw, I believe - the prosthetic was an add-on.

    The dog act in your quote was on tonight (Monday) - the flipping/dancing act. It was very good for an animal act. I loved Sharon's exclamation "I want those dogs!!!". Cracked me up Howard explaining that's why you don't put through just any animal act.

    Caught up with last weeks shows but did not watch last nights yet. I haven't been too impressed with many of the acts yet. Most seem like 1 trick ponies who won't have anything else after the tryouts. None of the dance crews are really great either. The problem is for singers we have AI and the Voice where there are a lot better singers and for dancers there is America's Best Dance Crew on MTV where all of this seasons teams are better than any who have been on AGT.

    Hopefully we'll have better talent in weeks to come.

    If you search Youtube, you can find more videos of the dog act. They were amazing and it looks like they still have a couple of tricks up their sleeve.

    I liked when Nick said he heard something pop after his last kick!

    I was surprised Nick actually did it due to liability issues. I am sure there must be waivers signed on this show.

    The whole Howard comforting the 7 year old looked forced.

    Shame on that kids mother. Don't blame Howard because your kid sucks and can't handle rejection. She put him in that position. If he isn't mature enough to handle it, don't let him compete.

    Some parents really do need a clue...

    I agree 100% and it was my exact thought when I saw it. It is completely the parents fault the kid was crying. You put on stage in front of millions of people knowing that a 7 year old is never going win this show and you get what you get.

    I don't think anyone blamed him or was mad at him, not even the mom. The whole thing looked like ok I'm big bad Howard going to comfort this crying kid, he looked so uncomfortable doing it.

    Sharon buzzed him too. The kid was horrible. I couldn't understand a word he was saying.

    I dont think Sharon would have been the first to pull the trigger tho. She only did it because Howard broke the ice.

    I do agree he was horrible but they should have let him finish.

    Howie didn't buzz him, so without three strikes, he's allowed to finish, from what I understand.

    The act did end abruptly though. I don't know if it was a weird edit, or if the kid just bailed after the second buzz.

    Totally disagree. If you can't do that, then don't be a judge.

    Acts are not supposed to stop unless they get 3 Xs. If they don't get 3 Xs the judges vote. After the kid left the stage the producers came out and told them that they had to vote to make it official. Howard voted yes and both Sharon and Howie voted no saying they didn't want to put the kid through having to inevitably disappointed again.

    Wasnt that girl actually pretty good?

    That was one of the things I was refering to where they put the guy that stands on his head in a chair while the other guy plays the piano through but buzz this girl.

    That 7-year old rapper was horrible. Buzz away.

    Howard was right to buzz him, but then totally pussed out when the producers asked Howard what his official vote was and he caved and said "yes". Wtf?
