  • It's BACK!!!

    Well I love the show and i love the judges. My favorite is Sharon, she is so funny and she is very polite about things. I thought everyone did great. I was only disappointed by two things out of the whole episode. The first was the audience!! I was so pissed off! They were so cruel and it was such a bad idea that they let them have a say in it! That is what bugged me so much!!!!! :( Hmm.. My second disappointment was that those twins got through! They were awful. They were like two Britney Spears at the VMA's. They even looked like it!!!moreless
  • Season 3 is here, and the judges are back!

    I like this show, and this episode showed me why (once again). As usual, there were some terrible acts (tongue boy, the Tom Jones tribute, etc), there were some great acts (the violin brothers, the opera singer, and hip-hop clog dancers), some surprises (the trombone player, baton boy, and the four-year old singer) and some disappointments (the judges letting through the twin singers from Romania; man, they sounded awful and dressed like teen-aged prostitutes. I also was disappointed that burlesque continues to find a place on this supposed family show).

    The judges were in their usual form: Piers was direct and blunt, Sharon was supportive and warm, and the Hoff was loud and funny. Jerry Springer was a great host again (I never thought I would like him), but what surprised me this time around was the audience. They have become the unofficial 4th judge, and man, were they brutal! No sympathy. If they hate you, they boo you out of the building. If they love you, it's hard to have the judges vote against them.

    Overall, it looks like the same old fare, but that is exactly what I want from this show. I am looking forward to this season. My only complaint is that they did not show enough of the acts that made it through. Some that they showed in clips looked really good.moreless
  • auditions!

    America's Got Talent is back for another year and this episode highlighted some of the auditions in different cities. There was the usual, terrible acts that were just bad. I don't understand why those people think they're good or why they want to waste other peoples' time. Anyways, there were, however, a lot of good talent. My favorites so far are the two violin brothers, the baton thrower boy, and the oprah singer. They were all unique and all talented. I think the judges were great like last year. I don't really like Jerry as the host, but he's bearable. Overall, an episode full of talent and very entertaining.moreless
