So, like last week, I spent the night saying “I’ve seen this before, and it was better then.” A lot of kinda mediocre disappointments. Have they actually found all the good acts in the world?
Continuing to hate the overpackaged produced version of the show. Apparently they don’t show any bad acts anymore getting buzzed, because someone might get their feelings hurt? That used to be pretty funny years ago. And you simply know ahead of time when you are supposed to be wowed by an act.
Gabrielle is betting better. Julianne still seems like she’s reciting lines when she reacts although I continue to enjoy looking at her and hearing envious cracks about her. Terry, although I was slow to warm up to him, is so much better than Tyra. Howie has passed his expiration date and Simon still looks like he has a $50 upper tooth flapper and 1.99 Haynes worn-thin wifebeater T shirt. He needs to lose the Dunkies cup and grab a ’Gansett.
On to the “talent”:
Suitcase Boy. Yeah, tired of the geeky, skinny dweeb act. It’s been done.
No shirt guys. Strong tricks, I guess the chicks like to look at them. It’s funny though that Heidi-Mel-Gabby-Julianne all act like they have never seen a hot guy before. Don’t famous chick get guys?
High kick chicks. I was happy to see Howie finally disagree and vote no, even though his comment comparing 15 year olds with professionals was stupid. They really weren’t very good and the “focus” girl in the middle that did a couple things alone was one of the worst performers they had. Who picked her?
Coconut Sledgehammer: Dull. I like danger acts, but there’s never any danger. Obvious trick going on. Also, why find the World Biggest Human and use him by... laying on the floor. Huh? Wonder what that “salt” really was.
Old Lady singer. I expected her to be better, a little disappointed.
Light Balance Kids. Since Illuminate, this tired light show has been done over and over and over and we are still supposed to be interested. Oh look, the parents put their kids in the outfits how shocking. Most interesting part of this was the little girl Kate Moss lookalike who spoke at the intro who clearly has a Vogue contract in her future.
BoyGirl Singer. I thought he was a girl too. Who cares. Knew she was lying about coffee shops. Really expected herhim to be much much better, very disappointing. And Simon calls him Harry Styles... completely compromising previous comparisons to Taylor Swift when someone was actually exceptional. Now his comments mean nothing.
Comedian Guy. My favorite act of the night. Oddly, completely different from most all AGT comedians, he was actually funny. I agree with some commenters that it’s unfortunate it seems tied to his disability. If a comedian comes on who is funny without a hook, Ill be stunned.
Gforced. Could they waste an entire segment any worse? Terrible singing, dancing, mediocre at best Spice girl imitation from a cow town dance school competition. Is Simon actually going to pretend this is a pro act in waiting? Just awful. Painful.
GhostChair. Great comment that a chair that old that survived a fire should be less brand new. I love creepy stuff and some acts like the Mentalists in the past have been superb. This was painfully dull and boring. The trick with Gabby was repetitive and that’s all he had. Zzzzzzz.
and finally, GoldenBuzzed. Um, huh? Not a good singer, Julie says it doesn’t matter, not a performer, not good at anything. Impressive overconfidence in himself though, unawarranted as it was. Clearly the most unworthy Golden Buzzer ever? Can’t think of a worse one, maybe someone could suggest another.
As I said, not a good episode. It seems all the good acts have washed through all the competition shows, so we are left with all second-tier stuff? And Simon and company trying to pretend they are just great? Oh, and I’ll never understand the point in mixing location clips together. Why not do one or 2 at a time for continuity?
