Did you make it to the live show? What was your act?
I made it past the initial televised audition, but not the second round of "Judges Cuts".
This be me.
That was cool!
By the way, if they made a movie about you, I can't decide if David Schimmer or Hamish Linklater would be best to play you.
Ha-ha! Well, my wife is a distant cousin of Mr. Linklater's, so maybe we'd have an "in".
Wasnt your act televised? I feel like I had seen you before.
Yes, we remembered it when we watched the clip.
An old friend of mine who made a pretty good living playing the accordion (connected to a MiDi computer) was on Britain's Got Talent a couple years ago. He holds the distinction of getting four red crosses!
Yes, that's what I (tried to) say above.

I would suggest that (since Jon B. is just a couple of years older) Sam Seder is your doppelganger.
BTW, what is that contraption called? I'd seen it before, but can't recall. How did you come upon it to develop your act?
That's called a Theremin.
Basically a radio-controlled oscillator. As Jon B's performance suggests ( ) it's extremely difficult to play.
It's a theremin. There's a documentary about the inventor, that came out 20+ years ago, that got me hooked.
Just found the thread. We like the show, though neither of us is really a fan of Tyra so far. I'd rather have Nick back.
This week, I was blown away by Angelica Hale, the 9-year-old singer. I thought she was amazing. Yes, I know some people feel there are too many singing acts, and I understand that, but still, some singers are really impressive.
The mind reader/Sherlock Holmes guy was good. Though to me, it seemed like the act was really the part with him determining which hand held the coin (which I did still still think was cool). When he was asking the audience for an animal, color, etc, you can be pretty sure that when you ask hundreds of people for a color, someone will say white, for an animal that someone will say cat, etc, so you simply "accept" the audience suggestions that you need. Getting "Oscar" for a name suggestion is admittely less certain, but they did show the guy in the audience actually say it. And I assume he'd already quickly decided which hand held the coin, before he assigned the audience suggestions to each hand. But the kitten was adorable, so I'm glad someone said "cat"
I think what the original poster was saying was he/she thought the producers told the judges who to give the golden buzzer to ahead of time.
Very cool, Jon!
I'm kinda bored of the golden buzzer. And it's always the last act each week so I know with 6 minutes left that it'll be next.
I'm not a big AGT guy--only have seen a few episodes. But I must say, I've been impressed by shows I've seen this Summer.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus now is defunct. But I could see so many of these performances in a new, revived circus, which I would go to see. It is heartwarming and reassuring to see the existence of this talent.
Yeah that kid had a uplifting story, but let's face it, his singing was not all that.
I liked the magician twins.
I thought that the act should be booked for Las Vegas, assuming that there is enough material for a full show. That good and polished. In fact, I think that this could be said for many of the acts--I could see an AGT-Las Vegas show. I enjoyed the dog act as well--just fun to watch, from a circus vantage point.
It wouldn't be the first time. It doesn't have to happen before. I wouldn't be surprised if at least one of them didn't have an earbud where producers could talk to the judges in their ear
THEY WERE TWINS???
Seriously, though-yes, clever and highly entertaining. Simon is right, that's a pre-made Vegas act right there!
I had a bit of an issue with the husband and wife act where the husband balanced the pole and the wife climbed it and balanced on it- spectacular? Yes- Amazing? Indeed!
Dangerous-yes, but-SHE HAD A WIRE! So yes, dangerous-but death-defying? I call BS! Not that I wasn't entertained, I just have an issue with calling it death-defying when she was held by a wire the whole time.
I know, I know-easy for me to say from the safety of my sofa.
