IIRC, last year it took 3 or 4 weeks before I saw anyone who could crack the top ten. Not this year.
Before Anna Christine sang, I knew she was going to be good. She had the voice of a very mature adult. I don’t recall such a young person sounding like that. It seemed so weird hearing that voice come out of that child.
Once Special Head finished his routine, it became obvious why he walked the way he walked, he had some sort of contraption under his robe, that when activated, gave the appearance of levitating. If he could avoid the awkward walk the routine would sell much better.
Catapult was enjoyable, but we saw that act last year, or was it the year before when the kids did it? Another one of those acts that makes it difficult to top the previous performance, week after week.
Angela Hoover, the comedian, was also very good. I’ll need to see more of her to see if she can make the top ten.
Marty Brown, the C&W singer, blew me away. He sounds like so many popular singers that some may say that is a negative, but I can’t hold that against him. If Kevin Skinner can win (although it was the agenda of the judges to overly promote him, IMO, and the gullible audience bought it), then Marty can win. The dude can sing. Period.
The dancers from Hawaii were great, but dancers have to come up with completely different routines every appearance and that makes it difficult for them to advance to the final rounds. Still, I’m looking forward to what they come up with next.
Having an Orchestra was different, and I enjoyed it, but I just don’t see America getting overly excited about ‘em.
There are times you just want to strangle Howie. Letting that girl continue doing whatever it was she was doing, was one of those.
Not once did I think about the director. Because of that, it was a good job. The question will be, can it continue?
I liked the sort critiques by the judges. I was concerned they would get in the way of each other and that didn’t happen. They have Heidi Klum there for one reason and one reason only - her looks. But I’m good with that.
From start to finish that was one of the best shows I’ve seen from AGT.
We just started, but I already have Marty Brown and Anna Christine in my top 5.
