Lonesome Rhodes May 29, 2019 Share May 29, 2019 Per usual, the open had gorgeous visuals with beautiful editing. If nothing else, SYCO has a top-flight production team. I have a bias against Julianne coming in. I noted they went to great lengths to make her out to be the "sweet one." It seems I am not alone in my take on her. Gabrielle (Mrs. Dwyane Wade (Basketball Star)) is so ridiculously pretty. She had her introductory AGT tour while her husband was taking his valedictory around the NBA. I typically love the acts like Gingvilla. He seems a cross between Barry Humphries and Prince Poppycock. He doesn't seem to have the true whimsy those two have/had. He did pick a perfect song. The magic act was really good. The cut/restored card effect was the most astonishing to me. The "magic" table itself is something that takes away some of the wonder, though. Italian piano dude was aight. But, he is a classic one-trick pony, no? The Mumbai dancers had at least two stunts I had never seen: 1) The poles. Beyond creative and super demanding. Wow. 2) A second acrobat stepping on another who is laid out in mid-air. Brilliant. I'm guessing they were on another Got Talent show. I definitely want to see more. The comedienne was better than all from last season. She still was not very good. I loved how Simon pursed his face when she mentioned fat and donuts with those big ol' Dunkin cups sitting prominently (at great expense) on the jidges' table. Kodi Lee was quite something. Fine by me he got the GB. Unfortunately, that cheats us out of at least one performance. I did enjoy watching Julianne attempting to conjure an appropriate shock face. I could just see her image wheels spinning in her head. What she settled on was unintentionally funny. An actress, she is not. Glad to see a danger act right out of the gate. When did we get one last season? Did we have even one? All in all, a very well done season premiere. 3 Link to comment
