    Why did Hoff leave? I don't miss him.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    All this talk of Jerry vs Nick... I liked Regis in the first season as host best. I much prefer Sharon to Brandy (who also did the first season).

    I believe he and his daughter are doing a reality show on their life.

    I like Howie as a judge, but I don't think they should have put through the guy doing impressions (though he was so bad it was funny) nor the Hannibal guy who sang Hallelujah. I do find it a little funny that the judges for America's Got Talent are two Brits and a Canadian!

    I liked the "future funk" guys, the French dancer and the guy at the end was good. But so far no one who has totally impressed me.

    I did notice the Paradiso people on SYTYCD. And I was wondering if the "sideshow" dancers were part of the Ringmasters group from ABDC a couple seasons ago? There's so much crossover now on these "talent" shows.

    I turned on the tv as those guys were getting their comments...from what Piers said, I thought of that ABDC group too. and was really glad I didn't see them perform. Squicky!!!

    Young Taylor from LA could be a real teen hit if packaged properly. Original arrangement.

    He has the whole Jeremy Abbott adorkable thing going on.

    at Sharon being gaga over the dog act. Not surprising.

    Last season, the Hoff would have buzzed the "genital" dude right away like the rest but I liked that Howie rolled with it just to see what would happen.

    Not bad tonight, but no one that I'm that excited about. I liked the group that used the electric effects, but they would have to up the performance level in Vegas to get to the next round, I think.

    I found "rapper" CJ to be more obnoxious than cute

    Anyone watching tonight? Gabe Sidibe's mother just auditioned. She's a singer who sings in the subway station (although I suspect she's had some more opportunity recently) and she just blew the crowd away.

    I thought she was great!
    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

    I love that Howie wants to give some of the more bizarro acts again. He seems to be having a ball at this job

    I'm really glad they didn't let that one little girl with the backup dancers through. She has a big voice for a little girl, but the whole thing came off as being extremely pageant-y and the mom seemed like a stage mom

    Wow, she has one powerful voice! I too am surprized she hasn't had someone call her for some singing gig, if even just as a singing cameo in a tv episode or movie. Hopefully that will change.

    Me too. Although they do send some bizarre acts to Vegas, like the yodeling lady, but you know they're going to get cut.

    Last year didn't they cut some of the Vegas acts at the airport, even before they got a chance to perform again?

    Yes. Which made you wonder why they bothered to send them to Vegas.

    Yes, including one of my closest friend's sister I thought that was a cheap move.

    Gaby Sidibe's mother was amazing. I would hang out in the subway to hear her.

    How come they put through all those screeching kids in past years and not the 10 year old who was a good performer? Maybe a more age appropriate song would have done the trick.

    on Yodeling Lady. The "illusionist" had me on the floor laughing. He's a comedian.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    She was also featured on GMA, around the time of the Oscar telecast.

    Wow, ATR is awesome! Such a rich voice, and strong performance skills. Loved that her singing is lovely and powerful even when she sings most or all of a song sitting down, and even despite the awful acoustics of a subway.

    Apparently, someone saw her on the subway, and invited her to appear on Dutch TV:
