Yes

I wasnt real impressed by him either but the judges loved him so he'll end up going through. Id rather see him again than Tone.

...and then when they do change the act up, the judges tell them that this wasn't what the audience wanted to see, and that they probably just blew any shot at the million (and they're right).

Also, not that they have any real chance of winning, but if Aquanuts ends up winning, how do they appear on the Vegas show? Do they move it to the natatorium at UNLV? Somehow, I don't see a pre-taped performance going over well with an audience that paid who knows how much for tickets (and this goes for all of the other "outdoor" acts as well).

Wow....Marty Brown might have been the worst and most uncomfortable act I've watched in any season. It was just bad from start to finish.

Worst... song... choice... EVAR

I was glad to hear there will be a tour this year. Maybe we'll have to go again if its coming near us. I havent checked the venues yet.

EDIT - Wow.. theyre actually coming to our town this year. We had to drive 2 hours last time we went.

Okay the American people are idiots or watching AGT is making them stupid. Not only did they vote in Marty, whose performance was lousy, over Ciana, but she also got less votes than Angela Hoover, who wasn't that good and Tone, who sang the exact same (awful) song. I think it's a given that Ciana will be back for the wildcard show.

And I still think the judges should split every week.

I wouldn't be surprised if the producers, well, "suggest" to the judges that they try to make the vote a tie.

They haven't announced one, but considering that there has been one pretty much every year since the year where a contestant (a Russian bar act, if I recall) got injured just before the semi-finals and had to be replaced, I don't see why there wouldn't be one this year, especially as it's too late to get a "YouTube's Got Talent" week going.

Still. it's possible that they can go with just the 20 semi-finalists, have 10 perform on 8/27 and 10 on 9/3, a final 10 or 12 on 9/10, and a final 4 or 6 on 9/17. NBC has already announced the finale will be 9/18.

I thought the talent on this week's show was much lower than last week's. I don't think any of the acts that made it through this week would have made it if they competed last week.

Marty Brown getting voted through is a joke. His act was pathetic. I could sing better with a mouth full of marbles. He was perhaps the worst singer in the last two live shows. He got by with his sap story and from fans who apparently are tone deaf. America shouldn't be allowed to vote if these are the decisions they make. Worst pick ever.

You could see that was the case. Marty was really good in his first two performances. That "Coal Keeps The Lights On" guy was pretty good too. I really liked the black guy that sang country.. I thought he was good too.. I wish they had put him through.

Glad Tone The Chiefroca didnt make it through.

That much I knew. I thought there was something else going on in his backstory.

Regardless of his story or his credentials, he sucked miserably. There are very few spots and they should be earned, not given away to someone who did as poorly as he did. I am not a fan of any shows that lets the American public make the final decision. I'd love to see a season of a something like this where the public is either left out or their vote is weighted with the judges. Marty getting through makes me want to stop watching.

Which is worse? If Marty had not made it through, there's the chance that "B double O T Y" would have.

Marty deserves a spot way more than those guys.

For what this show is SUPPOSED to be, I would MUCH rather see Marty Brown sent through to the next round than to see someone who's main purpose for being there was to be a one-hit wonder. Neither one of them is going to win this thing, but I would much rather see Marty again than the other guys.

Full disclosure, I had already seen enough of B double O T Y that I actually fast forwarded through their performance this time, which again just tells me I'd rather see Marty make it through.

I find it ridiculous that an act consisting of a guy putting on a ball cap and taking it off again could have made it onto television, and then put through to Radio City Music Hall!?!?

Actually, I wish he was put through even though he made a mistake. He has charisma, something that the judges noted that the guy who got run over by a lawnmower while on a bed of nails didn't have.

Charisma, Schmarisma. When all he did was play with a ball cap (ok, he danced a little, too), sorry but I didn't really even see why he made it to RCMH. Through the auditions, I can see that. Beyond that, nope - just more of the same thing. Glad he's gone.
