I was really looking forward to this season of AGT. With 2 new judges and all, I thought we might finally get some real judging. Boy was I wrong! From the moment Julianne Hough opened her mouth, I knew this was going to be one of the worst seasons evvvverrrr! Well, there is Gabriella Union to provide some balance. Wrong again! Her over the top responses left me want MelB to return.
Tonight's finale is going to be anti-climatic, since we all know who is going to win regardless if the "guaranteed winner" had the most votes. TPTB will find a way to "tweak" the votes I'm sure.
Voices of Service starts us off with the first elimination of the night. I liked their singing, but I just don't see them as a Vegas act.
I am surprised that DYC is still around, since there is nothing special about this choir. Sure, they dance and sing pretty good, but I could easily see this locally. Just one of many acts that are heavily dependent on sob stories. Growing up in a rough neighborhood and upbringing doesn't mean a great Vegas show.
I'm just going to say it here. Ryan the comedian is not funny at all. I think people laugh at his jokes because he waves his arms, knowing that people will notice. His jokes fell flat yesterday.
Emanne sings opera and everyone stands and applauds. Why? Because we can't understand what she's singing so it must be good? She was one of two singers that sounded pitchy. The other singer will come in at #2.
Tyler's violin playing while dancing is not new, but the judges apparently think so! He kicked cancer's butt which is great news, but he also kicked other contestants butts that were more talented than he was. Thanks to the sob stories!
Ndlovu, the other choir is more polished than DYC. They dance better. They sing better. They even dress better. I don't care for choirs, but this is the first choir I won't mind seeing winning.
LBK. These kids are awesome! Period!! They do everything that I would enjoy seeing in a Vegas act. Besides coming from a war torn country, their back stories don't hold up to the eventual winner or any of the others. My favorites, but America doesn't agree.
V. Unbeatable should probably win AGT. They performances are stunning with all the acrobatics and stunts. If LBK doesn't win, then I'll be cheering V.U on!
Benicio is not my favorite by any means. Nor is he the best singer on this show. The really good singers have been eliminated already. He was pitchy last night, but the judges weren't going to tell him that. In fact, they haven't told him anything of the sort. America seems to love him.
Now we get to the reason this finale won't have an exciting ending. It's been decided already! Kodi Lee has gotten the best treatment any contestant could get. Never has received critiques of any kind. unless you think "you make America better" or " you brighten up the room" are critiques, not one judge has bothered to say anything about his singing. He has received the most sympathy votes. It would be cruel if Kodi doesn't win after the judges and America basically declared him the winner weeks ago.
