I'm usually vocal against the kid performers but I concer with Howie that these kids are ready for a Saturday morning show. I don't want them to win or anything but I thought they sounded good. And Stevie Wonder isn't easy to sing.

    My favorite coming in was the comedian but her material wasn't very good last night. Her audition was really good.

    I do have to give them props for the song choice. It was a hard song and they did it well. I like them more than I typically like the child singers...or I did on that song.

    Melissa Villasenor was one of my favorites coming in. I just think her impressions last night were a little obscure. Her Sharon Osborne was a little shrill. She did a terrific Judy Garland though. I think that the success of her first performance had to do with the popularity of the people she did impressions of. Her Natalie Portman and Kathy Griffin were eerily good.

    I did, too. I think he might have been trying to show versitility in his act but might have been better served if he had put the piano playing before the fire. After a while, any juggler can get boring if they are "just" throwing things in the air, but the piano bit was something I've never seen before.

    These girls are better than any of the other child acts, but the thing that I keep going back to is "headliner act in Vegas" and kids just can't pull that off. I have yet to see one that would headline it with the exception of Illuminate.
    The show is called America's Got Talent, but it is also the talent that needs to headline a show in vegas. Which is extremely difficult to do.

    I didn't like Fatally Unique as much as some of the otehrs, but I'd definitely have picked them out of that group.

    Zuma Zuma beats out the BMX bikers.

    Team Iluminate has to beat out the next group. Magic guy (everybody could see that trick), Sam B (surely not).

    Yes. Team Iluminate through.

    Yea. I picked the top 3. I don't even remember who's left for 4th, 5th, and 6th.

    last two are Kinetic King, comedienne, and I don't even remember what the other guy did. Nice looking guy in a tux???

    Kinetic King out so it's between the guy I don't remember and the girl.

    It's the juggler

    And the judges choose:

    He was better last night, but I still like her a little better for some reason. I think she needs to pick much more recognizable voices to impersonate for her semifinal performance.

    While I prefered him, I don't think it matters who they pick between the 4/5 spots. None of them have the fan bases necessary to make it into the final. At least he had the opportunity to show what he could do and didn't have to waste another set. Betcha he gets work.

    Glad the chipmunk is gone. We finally heard a bit of what her "backups" could do, and the one with the glasses actually has a better, more developed voice. They'll get work, too, unfortunately.

    Since they didn't make the finals, Disney may be able to snap them up. They're always looking for new tweens or younger as their stars age out.

    So the top 48 have been whittled down to 12, and next week are twelve youtubers, which America will pick three and the judges one? Which means we'll have a top 16? Two shows with eight performers and four picked from each, leaving us with a top eight?

    The current top twelve:

    Anna Graceman (soulful 11 year old singer)
    Sandou Trio Russian Bar
    Snap Boogie (young black male dancer)
    Miami All Stars

    Silhouettes
    Steven Retchless (pole guy)
    Daniel Joseph Baker (gay black singer)
    Smage Brothers Riding Show

    Lys Agnes (braided haired opera singer)
    Pop lyfe
    Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. (standards singer)
    Professor Splash

    Fatally Unique
    Zuma Zuma
    Team Illuminate
    Melissa Villasenor (impressionist/comedienne)
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Without seeing the YouTubers, I'd put Team Iluminate, Zuma zuma, pop lyfe, fatally unique, silhouettes, Russian bar trio, snap boogie and Miami all stars in the top 8. The singers haven't been that impressive this season. I'd go with Team Iluminate for the win. They could do all sorts of awesome stuff on stage in Vegas. Wouldn't it be fun to see a show with all these groups.

    16 seems like a bit of an odd number; seems like AGT has always been even 10's. A wildcard show, perhaps?That would add an additional 4 acts to make a top 20.

    I find Fataly Unique boring & not unique. I was surprised they were voted through.

    Me too. All I could think of when I watched them was how they're good, but I've seen a ton of crews who are waaay better.
