I enjoyed Eric Chien--because I thought he blended several techniques (vanishes, productions, the magic table) together, and did some of them extremely well. That said, I'm not sure what he'll follow it up with.
I thought it was "Jim-zilla", but Gingzilla makes more sense. Some people with low T grow very tall as a side effect. That they were supportive of that act but not ballerina man was mixed signals, except for Julianne, who waited to see how good the ballerina guy was.
I want to see someone say "I'm going to buy a certified used Camry this year, but next year I'm going to buy the complete Quantum Leap boxed set."
I enjoyed it for what it was, but that was partly because I fast-forwarded through anything I thought was boring, and partly because I wanted to relax and have fun.
(Raises hand.) I understand that there might be more good acts in one city than another, or more good singers in one city and more good dancers in another, but either do a "best of the stuff we didn't show you", or just do one city at a time and divide up the two hours. Sure, we'll lose out on some details of where the next comedian went to elementary school in exchange for a few seconds of stock footage of an audition city, but we could at least pretend to be consistent. (The other option is to go full "Fool Us" and pick a look and stay with it, but they make such a big deal of fashion for women that that wouldn't work.)
It wasn't perfect, but if they can shy away from "best SEASON EVAAAAH!" and realize that it's basically summer spray cheese and run with that, I'm OK..
Oh, and to answer a question, some people with autism and autism spectrum disorders have phenomenal pattern recognition, and can translate that into great musical ability, or other related skill. It can also be very frustrating if that doesn't translate, so *maybe* start with piano or keyboard, where it's easy to make a beginner have one note come out the way you want to. (Violin? Not so much.)
