What an amazing year! Visually we can fairly judge the dance, athletic and magical performances. We can enjoy the comedic words and absorb the amazing optical illusions of magicians and illusionists and spectacular performers. However vocalists are getting the short end. I went from our top line surround system in our home through 4 tv and audio systems to our basic HD TV and the sound quality translated for a vocalist was poor and hard to judge. I love west and Dakota but with the background and fanfare of semi final performances they were lost and their vocals diluted. Being a fan of American idol and voice I know Americas got talent can do better with voice performance to share what the judges hear with the voting public! For us at home it is obscured by instrumentals and back ground noise. I want to hear the vocals so I can vote fairly
What has happened which normally has me in my chair at 8. glass of wine, snacks, ready for some good television, it the same stuff over and over, go to a commercial break and come back to see an end of a audition. Now if I settle down around 8:30 and bring a book to read when previous acts appear.
Really poor planning for this season, personally I don't care about the judges being involved in the act, don't care about their behind the scene conversations.
Judgment week, their faces, like how dare you disappoint me and this season Howard Stern, well, he needs to go. The 7.4 rating below must include previous seasons as no one appears to like this season. Wish you had a zero rating.
the show for 7-15-14 was advertised as "all new" I saw nothing really new, most of the show was about the judges parts with contestants and their "off camera" playtime. I want to see more of the talent; that's what the show is supposed to be about. Very disappointed in tonight's show. I don't care for a show about the judges. This show is going down more every year. The first couple were the best. They picked then they went forward after all was picked, then we got to see the competition move to next level, then to 3rd level. Now you can't even figure out whose going to next level. Total mix-up
For TWO WEEKS running now I have witnessed reruns and replays of previous episodes of
"America's Got There is NOTHING NEW about the show, as advertised. I have complained to
the network affiliate near me, which broadcasts this rehash, and they seem to be clueless. What's the deal with all this? Is the show on hiatus, are the workers on strike, have they run out of money or WHAT?
Your show is headed for syndication real fast, folks!!
In case no one has noticed but our TV air ways are already filled with countless singer competitions. Nothing personal about all the singers on AGT but geez, go compete on one of those shows and lets leave AGT to a great show that's looking for that one great unusual million dollar Vegas style act that they claim to be looking for?
While I know this is another opportunity for people to showcase their talents, and I'm not saying those who have made it are bad... I guess it's just a complaint that there are so many singers that make it on this show. So many of them are so talented, but there are many vocal competitions out there already. Omit them, and just allow other acts that... really have no other chance. I'm tired of singers taking it when they have American Idol and The Voice and et cetera for such a thing. "Oh, what if they can't enter that?" I know, I know. I've thought of it. It's just a complaint. I'd rather see some nice visual acts and some weird ones make it rather than just another singer. It's so boring and monotonous now. Great voices, great talent, I just don't wan to see them. I don't say, "I can't wait to see who sings on America's Got Talent!"
I first started getting really into AGT around Season 7. It was honestly, my favorite season, with hilariously bad acts in the auditions, really likable and memorable contestants, and of course, the judges. Aside from the Howie/Howard fights, they were humorous and enjoyable to watch most of the time. It was a fun Season. Then comes Season 8, which was meh. The new judges were meh. There was funny bad acts, but not as funny anymore. The contestants were good, but not very memorable. It was a meh season. Now Season 9 ... Mel B is annoying, and Howie is HOLY unfunny. His jokes feel WAY more forced this year. Same with Nick Cannon. Also, is it me, or are the auditions feeling a bit staged? It's always some singer with a problem in life that can sing really well and it's all emotional when they get in and all the tears and huggin' and ENOUGH. UGH. Yep, I know, the 12 year old idiot who thinks overused sex jokes are funny. (People down here are clearly talkin' bout that). Also, I forgot to mention, what REALLY got me into the show was the funny bad there are the judges and Nick Cannon ruin it, and it's rare when they're actually funny, or it's rare for them to be there at all! There are actually SOME good contestants, I guess. But my biggest issue with Season 9 so far is the humor. The judge's antics are painfully unfunny and feel like filler. Ha ha ha! Howie took his shirt off! Ha ha ha! Mel B's fake birthday! So . God, even the comedians aren't funny. Haha! I'm going bananas! That's what I tell my bananas when I leave! Hilarious! Shut the fuck up and actually
So disappointed in the judges reaction to the 12 year old telling filthy jokes. That's right up Howard Sterns alley but being a family show until now he has kept himself fairly clean or it's been edited out. But no excuse for the women judges. I'm also getting a slanted view of Howie this year. Cannot believe they put the 12 year old through! Shame on you. Going to definately loose fans.
I, along with everyone, really like AGT!!!! A like the Judges, and their relationships with each other. But I was totally upset with the male Judges' response to a 12 year old who should not have been allowed to tell his crude, dirty jokes on Judges approval of this inappropriate, disgusting act for a 12 year old set a very low standard for the wish you would make sure this young man does not follow the same path when we next see him.....
I have enjoyed watching America's Got Talent and applaud the many wonderful and creative acts. I have witnessed many a stand-up performer and I congratulate them.
I am however very disappointed in AGT for allowing the comedy act of the 12 year-old comedian to be broadcast. It was lewd and disgusting. And to watch his parents belly-laugh at his soft-porn jokes was equally disturbing, especially when they wore the very essence of their Christianity on their heads. And then for the judges to condone and support his is a very sad day that we allow and encourage a minor to act this way. What kind of precedence are we sending to our young people. Parenting is a hard enough job without AGT condoning actions such as this. Totally disgusted.
Last season's talent was extraordinary especially the discovery of the great classic trio, Forte! This season is off to an even better start with many great acts so far. The standout for me and my family was the performance by future super star Julia Goodwin. The girl, at only fifteen, has the voice and countenance of a much more mature singer. Although she did not mention it on . Tuesday evening, she is the winner of the Michael Finestein Great American Songbook vocal contest and has been wowing audiences for over 4 years having sung the National Anthem at the World Series at only age 12. She is such a great change from the screamers and yellers on American Idol, The Voice and the X Factor with her traditional Pop and Jazz vocal quality. This girl will be a major star and is on her way to winning . this season.
I enjoy watching AGT however I think too much time is spent on the judges and not the contestants. After all the program is named America's Got this is Judges day. There is so much talent out there and I would like more of the time that this program is scheduled to be about them and not so much about what the judges do. Let them judge but keep it a minimum. Please show more talent as I know that there are so many talented people out there and I would like to see them!.
Extremely disappointed... This is Americas got Talent, and it was thrown in everyone's face they don't care about Americans. Japan won!!! I will no longer watch this show, I'm banning it and I hope others do as well. They sold the American contestants out and I'm done with this show. This is another example of American money getting sent to another country.
This was the most ridulous & unfair winner of all - yes, i know it's up to America (which i'm finding hard to believe at this point), but when a person wins who is not AN AMERICAN what's the use of the show's name!!!!! Howie Mandel ranted about how singers don't have to do anything but come out & sing - oh sure right, they don't have to practice & make sure their timing is on or harmonizing (in the case of a group). Also, they have a TALENT - that's what is all about - they were given a talent for a reason right???? I believe Kemichi winning waa a horrible mistake as many others do - of course, Forte should have taken the crown and hopefully will still make it big. The judges are ridulous except for Howard Stern - he is right on the mark. After this season, I don't know about watching again - way too unfair!!!
I find it very hard to believe that anyone watching the americas got talent contestants could posibly have voted for the winner of the contest rather than forte with amazing talent. Which makes me wonder what goes on behind the scenes. I will not watch it next year. Dont care to watch a result I know is wrong.
Not to mention the antics from the judges to take up more air time.
It's all in the title folks... I believed this show was focused on finding Americans with talent, people living in America. Very disappointed with this season. Can't believe the acts that made it to the finals. I don't dislike Kenichi, his act is very cool but should not have been consider for this show. I have watched and enjoyed every season of this show but am hopeful the producers will consider the fact that we call it America's Got Talent and should have a US citizen win.
Americas Got Talent is a big waste of time and really rips off the people trying to get some place. The entire program has gotten to be all about the host and judges acting up and fighting for attention at the expense of the contestant. Has-been Howie is the biggest jerk who does this. A good portion of time is wasted on judges acting like jerks!
Say what you want about Simon Cowell, but at least he pretty much kept his mouth shut and let the talent do their thing.
This latest scam of a show had the judges ranting and carrying on, pretty much bad mouthing singers or groups, and hard selling weaker acts over their soap box issues. They should just dump the show let all the has-been people they use for judges go some place else to get attention!
This is what happens when idiots and little girls are allowed to vote. They can't understand real talent! It's nothing but singes and traditional type entertainment. Kristoff Bros. and Catapult got screwed over for another Talor Swift wannabe and country-boy with only a veterans story that's carried him throughout the whole season!!
Wow. Im shocked. America really screwed up their voting. Kristeff Brothers and Catapult were ROBBED in my opinion, as was Brendan James who did MUCH better than Cami or Jimmy did. All the acts are GOOD at this point obviously, but, need to be MORE than just "Good" and some of the acts that went through were NOT in my opinion. I was truly shocked to see the results. At least Kenichi (sp?) and Forte went through, but other than that, wow. What effed up voting on America's can even understand Taylor getting through kinda, though I dont know if I'd say he's up to par with the other talent, but still better than some of what went through. Seriously. Collin Keys won over CAtapult?!?! I mean, WHAT?!?! Yes, he's a nice enough seeming kid, and I'm sure all the dumb teenagers think hes "Cute" "Hot" or whatever and are out there voting for him, but thats not the criteria. I have nothing against him as a person, but his act is NOT on the same level as acts like Catapult or Kristeff Brothers. I really do feel those two acts were utterly robbed of their place in the finals. Its BS. And for that matter Brendan James as well, was deserving of a spot moreso than some of who went through in his stead. He did AMAZING on his last performance. Totally unbelievable. America and their screwed up voting TOTALLY ruined the finals show for me. What could have been an AMAZING final show FILLED with talent (Forte, Kenechi, Kristeff, Catapult, Brendan, instead now has just been made a lot less amazing... I know there IS no SURE thing, and no sure predictions, but I still thought there were SOME acts that were basically Safe no matter what like Kristeff and Catapult. This proves that No one really is safe no matter what you do/think. I can only hope America gets it right NEXT time, and that either Forte or Kenechi win DID LOVE seeing Olate Dogs again though, and Terry Fator-thought I prefer his animal puppets, like the adorable turtle, to the human I give the performance show a 10 I give the results show a 3 because of the craptastically messed up results from america. Though if I count the performances and the fact that at least a couple good acts got through I'd give it a 6 or 7 mmaybe. Dunno...
How can America vote a comic through that's not that funny, and let a singer like Brandon James go? How can they vote the comic through, when they let a group like Catapult go? Is America really voting or is it the shows decision to keep who they think is right?
The Chicago boys spend half of their stage time waving their arms like monkeys. I hate the way they run around the stage trying to get the audience to cheer when they are ALREADY cheering. How DUMB can they be. The judges are even more stupid for not pointing out their stupid stage antics. I think they do not do Double Dutch justice. The judges should watch a real Double Dutch competition and they would have a better idea of how it is really supposed to be done.
And what is it with the judges always saying they're going to leave it to America to decide all the time? Is there a rule that restricts them from voting? Quit making that excuse and judge! That's what you're there to do! And it's ridiculous that all these singers keep going through in this competition. We have enough TV competition shows just for singers. Let some other unique talent win for us that doesn't use sob stories all the time. Kenichi Ebina has to win this season of America's Got Talent. Either way, this is probably going to be the second and last time I'm I'm watching this show.
I'd have to admit, I did once enjoy watching America's Got Talent, until the last few years. Most of the talent audtions are always singers who end up winning, so why bother showcase actual unique talents if you're not going to bother to choose them? However that's not the only problem:
1. Heidi Klum- the only thing I can honestly say is stick to general Hospital, you have no room to judge, just because you're famous.
2. Mel-B, goddamn it, you're a bitch. Just because people aren't generic divas like yourself, doesn't mean that they aren't as talented, come to think of it, nobody has even heard of you. Wearing that god-awful purple lipstick over a yellow top? C'mon you make tons of money, you should be able to afford clothes that coordinate.
I don't really have much to say about Howie and Howard, because they're neutral.
In a typical season, you can expect to find singers, kids, magician acts to say the least. Usually some preppy teen girl, or some cute boy that all the girls scream their lungs out for. I feel that it's more or less of a popularity contest, rather than the substance of their talents. if you remembered the past few winners, most of them, if not all were singers. Little kids are cute and whatnot, but would I go pay to see them? Maybe, but probably not. So the big question I always asked myself is: "Is the act worth going to see on Broadway, a concert, etc? More than likely, no.
The Booty guys are your pick? So many other truly talented people got sent home and that's the best you could do for the wild tells me you have NO idea what talent is and therefore should not come back as a judge of talent. Really disappointing. -10 is my true rating but it won't let me go down that far.
