While AMERICA’S GOT TALENT has proven to be a perennial summer favorite on NBC in the summer, the ratings have not been as strong as they have been in summer’s past and at today’s NBCUniversal Summer 2012 Press Tour, this decline was discussed. “The show is still number one and likely to end the summer as the number one show this summer,” says Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment President of Alternative and Late Night Programming. “I think that we debate frequently the ratings of all our shows and as we discuss AGT this summer, we look at what we’ve asked of […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICA’S GOT TALENT – Season 7 – “St. Louis Auditions”

It’s no secret that Nick Cannon is part of the allure of AMERICA’S GOT TALENT. Sometimes, he’s the best part of the show. When Cannon jumps on stage to rescue a failing or three-time buzzed act he immediately makes the act worth watching. Case in point, during the “St. Louis Auditions” when a voice-over wannabe didn’t cut it with the judges, Cannon appointed him his deputy narrator and let him take on some of his hosting tasks. Not one to be threatened, Cannon graciously allowed his protegé (Ron Porter, Jr.) to hone in on his territory. Now that’s class. Sadly, […]Read On »

Featuring: Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne, Nick Cannon Network: NBC, airs Monday and Tuesday nights Original Telecast: May 28, 2012 AMERICA’S GOT TALENT went to Tampa, Bay, Florida and found some good, some bad and some very, very bad acts as the series continues with its Season 7 audition rounds. Inspire the Fire was of the former — a singing and dancing group who re-interpreted the hit song “Lean on Me” with a hip-hop feel brought the audience to their feet. The judges – Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and the newly crowned king of all judges Howard Stern all […]Read On »

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT Season Six is over! Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. is the official winner of AGT Season Six. With a huge parade of acts performing tonight so much was going on at times I forgot why we were there. Def Leppard, One Republic, and Jackie Evancho all sang their hearts out in a prelude to the big announcement. Def Leppard certainly proved that they are still one of the best heavy metal bands of all time. Rock on! Ironically, when the final four acts got the chance to perform with their favorite famous counterparts during the season finale, they […]Read On »

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’s finals are finished! It’s all over. And now America will chose the winner of AGT Season Six. The last four acts have completed their AGT journey and now all they can do is wait ‘til tomorrow to see the results. Their destiny awaits them, although there is a really good chance that all four acts will win. Not necessarily the coveted AGT award, but an award to a fruitful and rewarding future of doing what they already do so very, very well. Sadly, it looks as though PopLyfe will be counting on just that tomorrow night. Their […]Read On »

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT has picked their Final Four! There were no surprises tonight. The four that earned their place, got their place in the finals. No upsets. No tragedies. Just pure and just. Four acts will move onto the finals next week and one will be reigned season six champion on AGT next Wednesday night. The first to be cut from the show was Smage Bros. Riding Show, mistakes were made – prices were paid. Miami All-Stars and Lys Agnes, both of whom had disappointing performances last night, were next to go. It was no big surprise when Team Iluminate […]Read On »

The finals for AMERICA’S GOT TALENT  have begun! Ten acts performed on AGT tonight hoping to fill the four slots that will move on to the season finale next week. Those four will have a chance at one million dollars and a head lining show in Las Vegas. That winner will be announced next week on Wednesday September 14th. First, which four will get their shot at the ultimate award? Shockingly, Piers Morgan could not contain himself from slapping down on the red buzzer even in the finals! His expectations are high for the finals and he wont let anyone […]Read On »

That’s it! No more tryouts. No more wild cards. No more You Tube acts. And no more dragging it out NBC, AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’s final ten have been picked and will compete against each other starting next week. Yes, there were many great acts to choose from and yes, it was a very difficult choice to make, but I managed to pick all five last night that made the cut. Why? Well, it really is simple to figure – which acts have lasting power and which have or ultimately will run out of steam? First easily making the cut was […]Read On »

Round Two of AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’s semi-finals is complete! Twelve acts performed on AGT tonight hoping to join the five acts who have already made it to the finals. Five more will go through tomorrow night and the final ten will compete in the finals. Piers Morgan, as always, didn’t hesitate to use his buzzer at the slightest moment of discouragement. Morgan buzzed Gymkana, Summerwind Skippers and Steven Retchless. Two out of the three made mistakes in their acts and let’s face it, in the semi-finals that’s unforgivable. Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel, who always seems dismayed at Morgan’s quick […]Read On »

It was no surprise when it was announced that front runner Team Iluminate was bound for the finals tonight on AMERICA’S GOT TALENT. The rest of the choices were a bit trickier, although, yours truly managed to pick nearly every one of them – so sorry to see Daniel Joseph Baker leave. Still, those that left the stage weren’t without talent and merit. Zuma Zuma and their amazingly bendable performance deserve to have a place to bend somewhere. However, I’m not sure Sandou Trio Russian Bar still has that option after an incredibly disappointing performance last night. Bicyclist stunt performer […]Read On »
