    I recently read that Howie Mandel is Canadian. That means that there are no American judges on America's Got Talent! :eek:

    Well, the judges aren't the talent for the show....the contestants are. And MANY of them are not American, but are living in America (just like the judges probably).

    I don't know, I didn't watch. Just giving you a hard time. ;)

    Boyle was on the British version of the show last year, April 2009. That's when the YouTube video went viral.

    Again Brian Brushwood was shown in recap clips yet some how I don't think he made it to Vegas let alone on TV. His trick is a good one too, wonder why it was not shown.

    If you watch Susan Boyle's audition, they did an almost edit by edit reproduction with this opera singer. Down to the bored sneering audience looks and hems and haws.

    Agreed. Which, by the way, could have been edited from another performance or even another day.

    Surprised that Mary Ellen made it through. The rest I was like ok I understand only so many spots, etc. but her... I just don't see it.

    Agreed. I don't see why she made it through.

    I thought they blew it on the magicians. I thought both of the eliminated magicians were much better than the two they kept (espeically the older guy. Why was he even with the magicians? He is more of a comedian.)

    Anyone else catch the 'nip-slip' on the rope act last night? This was the pair that almost fell and were kicked off. There were a couple seconds of it poking out the top of her dress when she was upside down. HDTV rules. I paused and rewound so I could, emmm 'confirm' the slip. For some reason my wife didn't notice it the first time.

    Me neither.

    And Peirs harassed the very good male vocalist who went a few seconds over 90 seconds, threating to disqualify him, yet they didn't disqualify Mary Ellen who they said went for almost 10 minutes! (10 minutes of off-key screeching and discordant keyboard banging at that). WTF???!!!

    I can see why they kept the old guy. True, he's a comic, not a magician, but he is funny.

    I wanted to see the magician who's in the military go through. I like his presentation better than any of the others.

    I didn't get why quite a few people got through - Mary Ellen, the older hand whistle woman, the harmonica player?

    I also agree the sleight of hand magician should have made it and no one mentioned the fire guy did the exact same trick the sleight of hand magician guy did during the auditions?

    huh?

    IMO he kicked up a notch (or tried to, with the small fire malfunction). Finishing with the cage full of people was a plus-up from the other performance.

    Well... For the trick, it just showed that the sleight of hand guy didn't do anything special. That was just another 'purchased' trick. The fire guy was really able to amp it up.

    Mary Ellen is annoying with ZERO chance of a Las Vegas show. Heck, I think the criteria should be 'Could they sustain a 45-90 min LV show?' If you can't, then you don't go thru. That means get rid of the silly kid acts. Get rid of the bad but cute old peeps.

    The first season winner was a perfect example of what not to do. There is ZERO chance she would have had a LV show.

    I think the Harmonica guys would have done better as a team, no one will want to stare at either one for a whole show.

    Mary Ellen will get snapped up by a casting agency for bit parts in Hollywood. She definitely will not win AGT.

    I don't get the hand-whistler, unless the judges are just trying to grant wishes for a thrill of a lifetime, but that isn't supposed to be the purpose of the show. She definitely cannot win either.

    The 11 year old rapper already has an enormous ego. He is a trainwreck-in-the-making.

    The two male singers were outstanding, IMHO. I can see either one of them making it.

    I don't recall who was the winner of the first season. Can you remind us?

    I seem to recall that they get to meet the Prime Minister and perform for the Queen. And I would suppose 500,000 pounds (approx. equivalent to US$1m).
