Howard brings a new freshness to the show. I thought he was great. He started with a quick trigger, but as the show progressed over the two nights he really mellowed. Maybe too much.
As usual, too much nonsense with Nick and the ridiculous acts that get buzzed. They’re bad enough; then he has to continue the absurdity.
I don’t need the added element of the audience commentary. 1. It looks too staged. 2. It adds nothing to the show.
David Garibaldi and His CMYKs paint a masterpiece in a moment was excellent. Painted Beethoven it in 60 seconds and it was entertaining.
The talking dog was hilarious. Like some other acts, I wish we could have seen more.
Turf’s slow motion walk was awesome. Contrary to most, I do like the touchy, feel good moments like his on AGT where they are truly humbled. Same with the father/daughter singers.
Much better start, talent wise, to this year than last. IIRC, it took several weeks to see anyone who had a shot. Not that any of what we’ve seen in two shows is a winner, but they are far better than last years crop. Hope it continues.
