    Howie is an idiot. How many fricken times did Nick tell him they were running out of time? You'd think he's never been on TV before... Anyway, thanks for the heads up. I was sorry to see the Air Band out but I can't think of who they should replace so I guess it's the right answer. ;)

    Howie announced his decision about a second after my TiVo stopped recording and they immediately cut to Law & Order. I had caught up with the live broadcast by that point.

    Fighting Gravity is an interesting difference from the "standard fare", but I can see their act getting rather repetitive and I'm kind of getting bored with it already. I absolutely HATED that act Quick Change from a few years ago, and the further they went and the more they were on, it was just the exact same act with different colors. I'm hoping Fighting Gravity can at least keep things fresh, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I wonder how much further the sisters sympathy aspect will get them, because their skill sure leaves something to be desired. They're certainly not getting by on their singing.

    Future Funk is also running out of steam. It's actually getting kind of painful to watch that the younger one has to watch and mimic every move the older on makes or he seems lost. I would really expect nothing more from a five year old, but that is one of the real limitations of a five year old being in this type of 'competition'.

    I agree with just about everything you posted although I'm a bit more optimistic about Fighting Gravity. I'd like to see them do something similar to the Japanese videos shown earlier in this thread. But better. :)

    The sisters aren't that great. The younger one has some talent but the older one is just average. Together they are meh. I get so sick of the "we've had to overcome so much to get here" crap. I understand that I should have pity but I just can't when they shove it in my face like that.

    Future Funk are cute as heck but I thought they sucked in their last performance. The little one stumbled through everything and you could tell they were following a routine that they didn't put together. I know the little one is 5 and I give him credit for doing what he can but there's no way they make it all the way.

    You really didn't think it was planned?!? It was certainly timed to the end. Producer was sending signals to say now do it to hold peeps until the commercials.

    No I really don't think it was. It not only missed the commercials after the end, it cut OFF the end. So nobody wins... I'm sticking with my contention that Howie is an idiot. :p

    I don't think it was planned, but I'm not sure I'd say Howie is an idiot either.

    I'm not sure how much live TV he's done, and that could be a factor here.

    I see it kind of like a poker player having the clock called on him on a very important hand. Howie's choice is going to completely disappoint one set of kids, which I'm sure he didn't like. Poker player thinks through (maybe overthinks) a HUGE decision, gets the clock called on him, gets down under 5 seconds and it's basically SLAM! Make a decision and it was either the right one or the wrong one.

    That being said, Howie's an idiot. Listen to your time cues, dude!!! :D

    I liked last night's banter - Howie said something about last week, comparing himself to "David Hasselhoff deciding which daughter to eat a cheeseburger with" and Sharon later told Piers that he "didn't have the suspenders YET!"

    Do you all think Piers and Howie are really getting along? There seems to be some friction between them or are they just having fun?

    It didn't cut off the end on my feed.

    Well that would explain the difference in opinion then. Here he's an idiot. Where you live he's not. Everybody wins. ;)

    I think Piers is a jerk who always has to prove that he's the Alpha Dog and is smarter than everyone else. I think it's partly that, and partly because Howie is stepping into a "role" that allows Piers to hassle him a bit. Howie looked genuinely annoyed a couple of times last night, so I'd guess these two won't be going out for Coffee any time soon. ;)

    I see what you did here :D

    And hassling the Howie may not be a good idea - good, long running comedians know how to make fun of hecklers and others who try to one up them too many times. I think the question is whether Howie will decide he wants to put Piers down a little harder or not. Or whether he is being quietly restrained by producer(s) or director(s) or just himself.

    Back to discussing the acts...I (and, presumably, pretty much everybody else here) had the top three pegged, and figured the magician would get the fourth spot, but I thought the "Lion King" singer would have been in the top five in place of the dancers.

    I have a feeling they're lying about the "losing" quarter-finalists going home. However, after the last two quarter-final rounds, any "Wild Card" round would be on August 10, but that's supposedly the date for the "YouTube's Got Talent" show, and they may advance some of the YouTube acts into the semi-finals instead of, or in addition to, some of the eliminated acts.

    This is coming down to the Gravity group vs the "wall" group imo

    I hope the Michael singer dude gets signed onto a singing contract...odds are pretty good he will...he seems like a really nice, honest, low key guy who is more there to help him and his grandma get out from under the lousy living conditions they are in vs. wanting to be a fame whore.

    Never underestimate the power of a young man with a guitar - the power he has on tweenyboppers, that is.

    The million dollars aside, you can probably combine those two acts and have a complete 90-minute Vegas show.

    0.7 miles...
    Just my $0.02 worth...

    If it were all up to me, the 4 that would have advanced in this show would have been:

    Alice Tan Ridley
    Antonio Restivo
    Michael Grimm
    Hannibal Means

    I got 3 out of my 4. Not bad. (And AscenDance were by no means a horrible choice. Can't really complain too much there.)
