Jeez, why are we so obsessed with pronunciation? Of the acts that went through last night...
Jonathan - sob story, talent, but can he compete head to head with James? Maybe. Forte, I don't think so, unless they really screw the pooch.
Wives - they are good enough and will tug on America's patriotic heartstrings so much, that they'll be tough to eliminate
Kenichi - I was impressed. If he can get even more creative, then he's got a chance...if he only equals last night or starts repeating himself, then it's going to be really tough to make the finals.
Chicago Boys - great story and enthusiasm, but really they can't carry a Las Vegas show.
Competition already passed through:
Marty Brown - common he should have been eliminated last week
Forte - should be there at the end
Anna Christie - amazing talent, but a kid will choke shortly
Keys - I think he's got staying power, if he can keep growing his act and making us scratch our head as to how he's doing it.
Housewife impressionist - if she gets better material, then maybe...outside shot.
Brandon James - I think he wins head to head against Jonathan, but if he has to go against Forte, then he falls short
Innovative - won't go any further
Muscle twins - they're pretty entertaining, might make the next cut...maybe more
Of the acts that haven't performed...maybe the dry comedy guy, the shadow dance act that creates illusions of scale (if they keep improving), maybe one of the kid singers (but they weren't that memorable, the coal miner singer (though I wasn't that impressed) America likes him, maybe the other choir group.. After that I can't think of anyone that jogs my memory.
Dry comedy guy
Shadow dance troupe
Brandon or Jonathan take your pick
any other sports are up for grabs
