So just watched the recording from last night -- easier to skip the freak shows that way. :D Couple of good family singing groups and neighborhood dance groups. Don't see a stand out solo singer yet. The one impressionist wasn't bad. . .we'll see if he's got enough material to go any farther though. Did not like the guy who put sharp things up his nose but they let him through. <shudder> There was a real short clip of the NYC Gay Men's chorus. . . .I'd have thought they were too 'professional' to qualify, but what do I know?

That "sharp thing" guy was disgusting, I had to close my eyes.  He's not going to make it any further!

Overall, I was pretty disappointed in the show, there was just too much "fluff" and not enough performances.  Hope it gets better as this is one of my favorite summer shows.

Ya. the sharp stuff guy and the guy who hung concrete blocks or something like that from hooks attached somehow to his eyes?  I just couldn't watch it totally to make sure.  The others who needed to get a room and the lady who made animal noises.. gah.

The dog with the frisbees was good, but not sure if I would want to sit through that for an hour in Vegas.  :)

The two kids groups were good.. quite the inspirational story at the end with the mom.

This is why I Tivo:  I saw the sharp things guy, and the guy with hooks and just sped through to the next decent act. 

The dog was good. . .but, as you say, not sure how it would make a whole show.  I can see it being part of a variety show. . . .

It boggles my mind that some of these people actually think they're good. . . .some are obviously just there for some attention, but there was at least one singer, and one 'impersonator' from Queens who were . . . .just. . . .really. . . bad.  And yet. . .they thought they were good. . . . .go figure!

I LoVe this show too! I watch it when "Survivor" is on break! :D Last night I DVRed it andstarted watching it 30 minutes into it so I could fast-forward it thru those yucky ones :p That couple in the Hula-Hoop thing.... "oh what pretty feet..." Puh-lease! I DID like the guy with the crush on David... I could not believe it at first, but then I started laughing! I'm sure he could do a lot of funny stuff, but an hour long???

Hehe, that was the funniest part of the show though.
I liked the 8-year-old dance team best so far tonight... I have it on DVR.

I always DVR it to get past the BS and to avoid stuff like the "sharp" guy.
I want that dog...so cute (unlike his owner)...lol.  I don't think Fido will make an entire show either.

Well, just watched last night's group. . . .the illusionist was the best of that lot I think. I liked the triplet violin players but Piers was right: they shouldn't sing. . . .and they should pick ONE of them to do the talking at any given time. . . .that's going to be a problem for them I think. The kid dance acts were good, for kids. . . . not sure they're ready for prime time yet. . .but they have plenty of time.

O.K.  just watched last night's group. . . .lots fewer freak shows, though I can do without the glass eating guy.

I thought the ladies tap dance group, the country singer, the magician, and the girl singer were the best last night. . . .

That country guy from Kentucky showed them...he won't be chicken chasing anymore!!  They were making a mockery of him at the beginning...who's laughing now?  I hope he laughs all the way to the bank.

Well, but. . . a chicken catcher?. . LOL. . . .and he was nervous -- until he started to sing. Of course, since he was the last act. . .I knew they were setting us up for something special. :D
