The 2nd week of the “America’s Got Talent” semifinals should be called “when children and animals rule the world!” The youngsters, performance artists, and pooches shined on stage.
Tim, Jacob, and All Wheel … exit, stage left
An example of “if we make them believe he is great, then he is great” syndrome. He’s good and I love his story, however I felt his rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine” was weak. David Archuleta on “American Idol was far more powerful.
On behalf of Chicago, Illinois, I apologize for the painfully sad attempt at “comedy.” We are much funnier and charismatic here than Mr. Williams would have you believe!
Sharon said of Williams’ unfunny routine: “You are extremely awkward…You did very awkward tonight.” Agreed. He doesn’t have the screen presence for show business yet.
All Wheel Sports:
Their time has come to an end, I’m afraid, because despite enormous skills, they started to slip in the past couple outings. It’s a shame, because this group could be a headliner. Howard Stern said of All Wheel Sports: “I needed that oh, wow moment, and you didn’t give that to me.”
Kids, dogs and dazzling artistry
Hands-down, the stand-outs were the kids, dogs and performance artists.
10-year-old Sebastien “El Charro del Oro” is a mighty force. Howie Mandel had the biggest laugh with his critique of the little crooner: “You are brave…look at you wearing white after Labor Day!”
The other youngsters who stunned were The Untouchables. With consistently outstanding dancing skills and mature-beyond-their-years professionalism, they capture the hearts of America.
This one goes to the dogs!
Has the world gone to the dogs? You betcha! Olate Dogs continue to shine, with love radiating from the father-son trainers/owners, and of course the real superstars, the gorgeous animals.
What more can you say about New Orleans’ Lightwire Theater and Sacramento, California’s David Garibaldi and His CMYK’s? They are both outstanding!
And the three will be…?
Which ones will be joining Joe Castillo, William Close and Tom Cotter in the “America’s Got Talent” conclusion? With a 3-0 record of predicting winners, I am going to say: Olate Dogs, The Untouchables and a toss-up between Lightwire Theater and David Garibaldi and His CMYK’s.
Regardless of the outcome, it’s going to be fun to see how this pans out during this stellar “AGT” season.
