Good assessment, guys. I’ll give you my take.
Those kid dancers are amazing. But I agree with DrLar; their age is a negative. Because they came back as individuals and not a group, I’m okay with that.
I wasn’t as impressed with the first opera singer (the one who proposed) as the judges were. There were several times he was not smooth but rough. Jonathan, on the other hand, was excellent. If he can duplicate that a couple of more times he’ll be a top 10 candidate.
Paul Thomas Mitchell was good, but it's a little early to make him out to be John Mayer.
They jury is still out on the magician. I believe the dollar bill that went up in flames was a fake. Anything that burns that fast, especially when it’s folded several times, are designed that way.
The cute ventriloquist has great control of her mouth. Need to see more.
So far there have been very few ridiculous acts and a lot that are going to Vegas. It makes me wonder if they aren’t stacking the beginning of the season to get more viewers and we are in for some real stinkers. I like this season.
This show can tug at your emotions.

We saw Straight No Chaser when they came to Richmond two years ago. They are a very talented group, and they put on an excellent show. We’ll be seeing them again on the 30th when they perform at Wolf Trap Farm Park, just outside of D.C. Looking forward to it.
