I'd like AGT to know how disruptive it is to constantly break away from the performance to show judges, audience members, and contestants hanging out off stage. It not only breaks the momentum but also causes the television viewers to miss parts of the performance. The acts are given such a short time for their performance and I consider it extremely poor production and editing to take the focus off of the performer during his/her/their performance. The judges get to say what they thought of it afterwards so we don't need to see their reaction during. We the viewers are part of the audience ... we want to see the performers, not some comment or expression from someone in the studio audience or waiting off stage, particularly since some of that looks like creative editing anyway. This is America's Got Talent, not "America's Got a Bunch of People Watching AGT ... please fix this problem.
Agree that Rubix should have gone through, but I also liked the comedian. Could have gotten rid of the contortionist or the knife throwers before him! Each one of their acts will be the same - one wiggling his belly and folding into a pretzel and the other will consist of him throwing knives at her, again. Would have rather seen the little girl that rapped go thru than the black lady that I don't even remember what she sang. Oh well what do I know!
I have never written something like this but the rubix cube guy was FLAWLESS! Impossible you guys voted him off! Was by far the most technically difficult and most precise act that night. What a robbery... Howey you and the rest of the judges were wrong! He deserves to be moved on!
Bogus rubix cube dude n rl should have been sent thru over the weird guy that does the belly thing disappointed even the old man / lady I think should have been sent home she's not bad but I don't think you need to be on agt at 69 and exactly how could u send him her whatever over rubix cube guy????!!! I also think they should make it where if the golden buZzer is hit 7 should still go through
That was the worst decision I've ever heard of. Our whole family was shocked when judges picked the comedian over the rubeck cube magician. That man has so much more talent than she did. We were amazed at his talent he was so good. I would pay to see him before her. She isn't that funny at all. Judges made a big mistake. That poor man was so hurt by your decision too. I can only imagine how he feels to loose to that act. I'm so disappointed in that decision. Hope judges realize what a mistake they made. Rating just dropped 2 points for me.
how could the judges pick the elderly lady comedian as having more talent than the rubics cube dude?!! He was great and his act thoroughly entertaining and requires so much more talent than telling jokes! shame on them!
Some of the acts of course are great. My favorite is the golden buzzer winner, Grace that sings and plays her song I Don't know My Name! She's amazing! But the way the show works is pretty dumb.
I have a friend, Chris LaRose who auditioned. He is an amazing musician. You can check him out on either YouTube, his Facebook page or Google chrislarosemusic.
He is incredible. More so than any of the contestants I seen on all 6 episodes of auditions..
He had his first audition in front of the producers but they never called him back. He found out some things about the show though that boggled my mind. For example; they have someone that only auditions bad acts. What? Stupid. So pretty much it's all for show and people with real talent are just being shooed away.
I don't even think I'll watch the show again. America's Got Talent is a joke people! Booooo!
Go Chris LaRose! Your better than this show. WAY BETTER.
Show the dance acts for their entire performances! Judges comment on how amazing a dance act is, and we get to see more of the judges reacting than the dancers singers get their entire song shown. Singers win because they get more screen time.
Nice seeing Simon on the show and dropping the ever horrible Howard Stern. Now, do us all a favor and drop the black version of Ryan Seacrest. Nick is horrible, useless and what drives me the most crazy is the pointless cuts to him during performances to see his even more useless reactions. DROP NICK.. he SUCKS!
The first episode I've seen was this new season first auditions. Not only the acts are terrible, but the music playing in the background while the judges talk is EXTREMELY annoying. It makes it hard to hear the judges and it's just plain annoying in general. Will not be watching again. Maybe when the show actually starts off I'll try it again. Till then, terrible terrible show.
All these comments I agree with. I support Drew. But he is not that funny. I came from a third world country (SA) who gave our top 10 prizes.. Really America? Plus you guys are gonna bring a sizeist and ageist judge (Simon Cowell) as a judge to replace Howard? Seriously. You are gonna lose your fans. I understand he is the creator. But he doesn't know the difference between criticism and just being mean. I hope Howie,Heidi,Mel and Nick leave the show cause they are to good to be along Simon.
Forgive me if I am wrong, but I cannot help wondering if the stuttering "comic" is faking to get the sympathy vote Those with limited talent need a gimmick. (Remember the guy a few years back who claimed to be a disabled vet and wasn't?). Even if he is not faking, I do not think he should have gone through, because he is just not funny. I cannot believe that the judges were splitting their sides over that pitiful performance, and even less that the people at home voted for him. I was absolutely shocked. I think that it was a big mistake to send home such acts as Siro-A, Samantha Johnson, the little 12-year old singer who sounded 30, and maybe even the Mountain Faith Band (although I do not care for bluegrass, I appreciate their talent.
And the judges comments seem to have a big effect on the voting, so I would like them to shut up and keep their opinions to themselves once the decisions are in the hands of the viewing audience.
UPDATE: I simply could not believe the final two, especially Drew Lynch. He has NO talent, and as I said before, he could very well be faking the stuttering for the sympathy vote, which is clearly what got him past the first round. Piff was much funnier, and the clumsy obvious tricks are part of his act. In the end he always pulled off an amazing trick that boggled the mind. Magic and humor. He should have won,
I can't believe America voting for some of the acts of stupidity. I don't think anyone they have picked deserves the big bucks. The judges have to blame for picking the sucker, puff etc. Turning it off!
What a shame to advance a sympathy vote for Drew Lynch who has almost no talent. AGT should emphasize to voters that their vote should be fore someone who can demand a $50-$100 ticket in Vegas. After paying for tickets to shows in Vegas, nobody who voted for Drew Lynch certainly has no experience buy Vegas tickets since nobody in their right mind would buy a ticket to watch this unfunny kid giggle. What a travesty of justice to allow him to go through to the end. Fortunately, a true talent prevailed and he will be able to support a viable Vegas show.
The show is "AMERICA'S Got Talent". So why are there so many contestants from other countries? Are they US citizens? What's up AGT? Stop it already. Agree about singers and comedians also. There are other shows for those talents.
With plenty of national singing competitions for vocalists... American Idol, The Voice, and others, would it make sense to eliminate solo singers from AGT for more even playing fields for them and others? And this is America's GT. With now over 60 countries having their own Got Talent competitions, should contestants be required to be from here? Then having a World's Got Talent international faceoff could be epic.
5 amazing singing acts. 1 in the finals. What's wrong with this picture? The show following AGT has 5 comics better than any on AGT this year. Someone tell Baldy. Jill Smith speaks the truth but let me add this. With the exception of the two brothers, every act in the finals could be replaced by one that's already been sent home. I'm done with this show!
