America’s Got Talent Live Show 1: The first Dozen

Welcome to the Start of the Live show for America’s Got Talent.

AGT

Pretty interesting Opening Act to reveal the judges. I do watch the “prelims” but to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the shows then, they preach and preach on and on about it being a Million Dollar act with an HOUR long show, well, more like 45 minutes but still, you are not going to drop 100 bucks for 45 minutes of a dog dancing.

So we are up with the top 12, lets see what we get tonight!

Anna Christine

This is the kid with the piano

Sob story

R E A L L Y S L O W version of Misunderstood. Not horrid but dull. She even admits it was a little off-key.

She’s 11 we get it. 1 of 4 wants America to vote for her (Heidi)

TellavisionTellavision

This act I like, this time they used 2 dancers to tell a story with the rest of the group performing the backgrounds. It feels like we have seen this before, but this performance really was different and amazing. Easily one of the four. This one I’d YouTube. This one is destined to be the irritating one that doesn’t win that I’d pay to see (The Fighting Gravity Award)

Howie and Mel like it, Heidi and Howard didn’t. Howie begs to vote.

American Hitmen

Band- Played “With a Little Help with my friends” I was unimpressed. Joe Cocker he is not.

I understand they are vets, but this was flat.

Again Howie and Heidi are the only ones who liked it. Howie begs to vote

Special Head Special Head

This dude is awesome. I do wonder what he is going to do for an hour though

This time he gave a short speach, did a levitation act then vanished. (Sad part is, you can see him go) Nick comes out confused, then we get a camera shot of him outside.

Crowd is a bit mixed Heidi also saw it. Mel was unimpressed with it. Howard said he ran out of steam. Nick tries to cover for him

Fresh Faces

Kiddie Dancers It was like 5 people doing their own moves, and when they came together they were off. Mel compares them to the Spice Girls- even though none of them were alive when they were relevant. Howie and Howard don’t like them. Heidi loves them and begs for votes. NOTE: I’m not a big fan of dancing groups.

Collins Key

Magician He’s young kinda goofy, incorporated the twitter feed, and did another awesome trick. He’s got a great presence and timing. For the first time, all 4 like the act.

Kevin Downey Jr

Comedian Not the most impressive set. Told 6 jokes, I laughed out loud once, as did the wife. Not any groaners though. Heidi said she heard one of the jokes before. Howie and Howard both loved it.

Aaralyn and Izzy

She screamed lyrics. Original song called Dog Poop? Really?

Wonder if they can open for Green Jelly? If she was 20, they got nothing, and I’m not sure I could put up with it long term. Its just not much past the shock value.

Howard buzzed it. The girls were unimpressed. Howie loved it. Stern is pissy about it.

Alexandria the Great Kristeff Brothers

Escape artist Again, can you do it for an hour? 25 feet of chains, 5 padlocks, straight jacket. Underwater

Her safety was 90 seconds, she was out in 70. Pulling the lockpicks out of her suit kinda dinged it for me a bit.

Kristeff Brothers

Handbalancing I hope this is better live than on tv. Its funny as hell, and impressive feats of pure strength. Dunno if we can do this for an hour. But for 15-20 minutes? Always. Howie and Howard declare best act of the night.

Hype

Three dancing guys I enjoyed it, but again, can I put up with it for an hour? But I could easily watch 10-15 minutes of this as an opener. When a judge throws it to America, they don’t like it.

Brandon James

Opera singer He’s gay, his family abandoned him over it, I get it.

If he can’t sing, then so what? Sings a Josh Grobin song. “You raise me up” I’m sorry, I want to listen to a singer who happens to be gay, not a GAY SINGER. Very good singer, nothing wrong there.

Overall:ADT Judges

Brandon James is in, no matter what, and the Kristeff Brothers are the easy 2

I think the judges killed Special Head and Hype

I liked the Comedian, the wife thinks his content did him in.

The magician should be a solid third. American Hitmen might sneak in, Tellavision might get the fourth spot, maybe vs Anna Christine.

I think this was a WEAK night to be honest with you, quite a few of the acts were better on the pre-lims, I have 2 favorites from this night, and I will bet there will be acts that would have been an easy third or fourth spot tonight.

My Personal Rankings:

Collins Key
Kristeff Brothers
Tellavision
Hype
Brandon James
Alexandria the Great
Kevin Downey Jr
Anna Christine
Special Head
Aaralyn and Izzy
American Hitmen
Fresh Faces

The Wife’s

The four getting in- Collins Key, Kristeff Brothers, Brandon James- then we split on the fourth spot I’m going Tellavision, she’s Anna Christine.
