American Got Talent: LIVE SHOWS!!

The Live show of America’s Got Talent, and the contestants were ready. The judges are ready. Are you ready to vote?

Darci and Oscar

Darci Lynne, the ventriloquist, and Mel B Golden Buzzer winner. She returns to the live shows, and she was absolutely adorable, and her performance was spot on. Did she grow a couple of inches? Oscar, the socially awkward mouse, sang “Who’s Loving You,” I could not even see her lips move. I am glad she had extra training singing with your mouth close. She was fantastic! Vote, vote, vote if you want Darci to go to the finals.

Howie’s Golden Buzzer recipient, Christian Guardino, 16. The soulful singer from Patchogue, NY bellowed “Make It Rain” by Ed Sheeran.  He was good and a great singer.

Artyon and Paige, the adorable besties, performed an ode to Footloose, with an energetic dance number. It was fantastic to watch these two dancers.  Lots of energy.

Then the patriotic singers of In the Stair Well did an a cappella song called “Some Nights” by Fun. They were good, and they showed off the vocal ranges. They were fantastic. I hope they stay.  Did you vote? Vote for them.

Singing Trump

The Singing Trump is back for another performance on America’s Got Talent, and he performed a medley of two songs during the quarter-finals! The Trump impersonator sang “Shut Up, and Dance” by Walk the Moon and “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer for his performance. Then he tore his pants off and revealed the American flag pants. He later joked that his pants were designed by First Daughter Ivanka Trump. He then mentioned that American could make AGT great again and bring our country together. The singing trump had more sense.

“As you said this week, there are good and bad things on both sides, right?” Howie said.  Plus, he has entertained us.

Cute as a Golden Buzzer was Angelica Hale, 9 and the youngest performer.  She sang “Clarity” he vocal range was incredible, and her voice was strong. Will she make to the next round? Will see.

bello N

Do you remember Bello Nock, who was sent home from the Judge Cuts? He came back, and he was the judges Wild Card.  The judges thought what can bring. Bello Nock ran out of idea and chose “The Wheel of Death” that was terrifying to watch. First, he was inside the wheel and then outside of the wheel, that was scary that my cat fainted.  And I don’t have a cat. Did you vote for him?

Just Jerk, the Korean Dance Crew. Look what Korean import to us – Their dancing was awesome, if we voted them for the next round, they should not bomb other countries. Their movement was spectacular. Wow. I hope people voted for them. Vote for them.

Haley-Reinhart1 + puddles

One of my favorites was Puddles Pity Party, the clown if he’s in the bottom three and Haley Reinhart (right) she was one of the finalists on American Idol, she sang with him a couple of years ago.  Vote for him again. He needs to stay in the competition or the bottom two. Tough choices for the judges. I hope they would not make us wait for the last second – that’s nerve wracking. He has a fantastic voice, and he should sing the classic that’s what he’s good for. Sing the classic puddles. Pick up those phones and vote for Puddles

Preacher Lawson was hysterically funny, and he brightens up the room, and of course, Mel B did look like Mystique from the X-men. Maybe the auditorium was cold. Maybe she cuddles with Simon to stay warm? He’s my favorite. He had great stage presence, and his jokes or story was funny. I hope he stays and I hope people voted for him.

Rollerblading siblings, Emily and Billy England performed their challenging, synchronized routine to Imagine Dragon‘s “Believer.” These two were incredible to watch. Did I see something sharp while there spinning around in the circle?  That was incredible. Weeks ago, she held his beard; this time was dangerous lifts, spins, and scary spins. I feel like Annabelle the doll from Annabelle: the creation just had her head pop out! I hope people would vote for them. If they don’t make it, they should go to Vegas anyway; they did perform for Britain’s Got Talents a couple of years ago.

Be sure to watch America’s Got Talent Tuesday and Wednesday 8 pm on NBC! Watch it live with your family.  You are missing the greatest show on NBC. And take a break from doing Homework!

America Got Talent: Call Backs 2

Puddles the Ckown

For the second week, 20 acts will perform, and 7 will move on, that leaves 13 acts to leave the competition, but will leave with their dignity that they made it through this round. They should do the same thing when American Idol comes back in the Spring of 2018. They should have new rules of how to select the best talent.

One example would be Jokgu the piano playing chicken gave the crowd a huge response when he auditions for the first time. However, when it was time for the callbacks for a second-time audition and played with another chicken. Both chickens got stage fright and one poop out an egg, I guess they were out. And I had fried chicken for supper.

For the guest judge, they brought recording artist DJ Khaled to help identify real talent for the evening.

It was no surprised that Khaled had a soft spot for one of the singers, they were other singers who were also great, but he had to pick one of the acts. I think they should change the golden buzzer rules watch all the acts first and then pick one to go to the live shows. Evidently, Khaled chooses Chase Goehring. He was trying to push the button again for Evie Clair, but it did not work, only act for each week, bummer.

Evie Clair 1

One of my favorites was Puddles Pity Party the Clown, Simon worst nightmare but this clown was special, the clown can sing. Sad clown with a fantastic voice. If this clown was on The Voice, the judges would not know who it is.  He sang a Celine Dion power ballad “All By Myself” to a huge ovation from the crowd and the judges. I bet the clown will be in the Top 5.

In the end, the judges had to choose which acts will go through the next round. I like this version of American Got Talent when the acts have to perform again for the audience and a guest judge. And the guest judge has to choose one of the acts to go through.

In this round, seven acts are saved, and they are Chase Goehring, Puddles the Sad Clown, Mirror Image, Junior and Emily, Colin Cloud, Yoli Mayor and Evie Clair.

Last week, they had Chris Hardwick, comedian and the host of The Wall a game show on NBC, gave his Golden Buzzer to 9-year-old singer Angelica Hale.

Advancing to the next round along with The Masqueraders, Sara and Hero, Singing Donald Trump, (My Favorite – don’t ask me he’s entertaining), Just Jerk, Demian Aditya, and Eric Jones

They’ll all perform at the Dolby Theater in the live rounds.

Who are your favorites?

Be sure to tune in every  Tuesday Night at 8 pm on NBC! Tuesday Night is Family Night!

You Have Talent, You got to find!

Ever since American Idol is not on the air anymore, but it will be back, because of the judges are music producers and singers, and they know what they look for in a singer if they have a good voice and the image is right for their label then they get a record label.

If you haven’t seen the recent episode of The Voice, they had teenagers in there 15 or 16, and they had incredible voices, the judges couldn’t tell if there were adults singing on the show and they got selected by their mentors on the show.

Why are these teenagers competing on The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance and America’s Got Talent because they got talent and they want to show their talent and what they got? And possible land a record deal, to do that they must work hard and compete with others in the same group with other talented people.

If you dream to be famous, don’t dream, make it real. We have community theaters in our local area, auditions for plays, if you don’t get selected – work backstage – that’s the fun part.

Don’t dream of being a director, if you have a camera that takes good video and you have a good video editor software, tell good stories about your yourself, or make Tutorials, How-to’s, or Reviews of your favorite subjects and topics. Make us laugh!

Do it as regular basis, because editing takes time and follow the guidelines on YouTube, their rules and regulations. That’s how people get notice – they entertain us. Be like them and put your own flair in it. Many actors and musicians got their starts making videos, and now they are famous. YouTube is a platform for talented people.   Stop watching YouTube videos and make a video! Entertain us!

Did you know that most casting agencies go through YouTube videos and if the video has more than a quarter of million views (250,000 – like this number) they will consider you have something. Have you checked how many views they have and compare to yours? You have to be better than them. It’s like a job interview, you have to impress people.

Twiddling thumbs

America’s Got talent: We have to Vote !

What an incredible night and full of surprises and suspense on America’s Got Talent.

Nick Cannon 3.jpg

Nick Cannon came out of the box, in fact, he appeared with a group of girls in one big box, it was magician night on AGT. Deck of cards were flying, and birds turning into women.  A parrot did turned into woman, but she was wearing the same outfit as the parrot.

BLTN.jpg

Henry Winkler was promoting his new show “Better Late Than Never” it talks about four well know celebrity friends going on a trip to Asia and encounter unusually culture they have found. It’s hilarious, you should not missed it, it’s hilarious.  Watch it next Tuesday night.

Magic 1

Magiciians 2

The magic was provided by The illusionist Live on Broadway. The great magicians all over the United States and probably the world. Donald Trump should ask the magicians to build the wall for him. Once the wall is up, people will walk across the field and get hit by an invisible wall, that would be funny.

One magician was trying to make the bulb cracked in a plastic bag. Some of the contestants could not do, even Howie Mande who scream at the bulb, even the bulb had earplugs for it would not crack.

Heidi Klum crack the bulb with her singing, I thought she was a model and not a singer. My cat was awake!

Here’s what happened:

Bottom Three 2.jpg

The top three bottom acts were: Tape face, Laura Bretan, and Edgar, people have to vote on the Dunkin’ save.

grace-vanderwaal.jpg

The first round was: Musicality, Lori Mae Hermandez  and Grace VanderWaal.  Grace was saved! Remember people you have to vote, this is not the presidential race, that’s different!

Sal 2

Next Round was Sal Valentinetti, and Malevo. Did you know he audition for American Idol and the Voice. He is one great contender in the competition.   Sal was saved. Fine with me.

dorenbos

Round three was Jon Dorenbos, Blake Vogt and Deadly Games. I prefer Deadly Games , but Jon Dorenbos was saved.

The final group was Laura Bretan, Tape face, and Edgar they were all tied as the top three with 200 votes.

Tape face 1

With the Dunkin’s save the results are: Tape Face is in the finale! No words can describe his excitement, exactly No words. He was speechless. He is Tape Face.

Now it’s between Laura Bretan and Edgar

Laura B

Three out of four judges picked Laura Bretan, she’s from Romania and she won Romania Got Talent a few years ago. Probably she did not get what she wanted from Romania and wanted to win America’s Got Talent where’s there’s plenty of opportunities here for her, if she did not win she will still make her name for herself in America. Don’t judge her on that, or ruin her passion of singing, she will be crushed and disappointed. She’s a child. She’s has an amazing voice it can stop a hurricane coming this way. She has confidence and talent.  She‘s precious. Vote for her.

Probably Simon Cowell knew about this and picked her to be the finalist on the show.

American Got Talent: Quarter Finals

Howie mandel

Did you watch America’s Got Talent? Then you missed a great show tonight. Everybody stick the landing including Nick Cannon’s new co-host and Olympic champion Michael Phelps. Nick should have celebrity co-host every week or he is the best host of the program.

Michale Phelps

Does Michael Phelps have talent? Can he sing, dance, or tell jokes?  Oh I forgot, he is an Olympic champion. The only talent he has is swimming and many medals that came with it

Michael Phelps is now a retired from the Olympics, will we see his son in the future competing in the swimming or the talent proportion of America’s Got Talent?

He did see a free show tonight.

Here are the winners and high lights of the show.

Magic Kids

Kadan Bart Rockett – The Kid Magicians, remember to vote for them next time, they might make someone disappear.

Grace

 

Brian_Justin_Crum

They were suspense between these two acts, they were both great. Remember vote for Grace and the guy was good too.  They were both great. Grace VanderWaal and Brian Justin Crum. If  Brian Justin Crum was on American idol this year, he would have won. Unfortunately, American Idol is cancel. Wait a few years, it may come back.

Edgar

Edgar is safe – I love this band, I hope they come to the Potato Festival next year in 2017 in Elizabeth City, NC

Blake Voigit

America's Got Talent - Season 11
)

Blake Vogt – The other magician, he was awesome. He was  an consultant magician in Now You See Me 2 along with David Cooperfield. If you haven’t seen it. Rent it!

Mavelo

Malevo wins the Dunkin’ Save – the Spanish guy Riverdance outstanding

linkin-bridge

Linkin’ Bridge awesome voices

And people stop revealing how magicians did their act, that’s the beauty of magic, it’s how the presented and boggles our mind. We love a great mystery and their performance. We saw one bad performance with the Quick Change Magicians few weeks ago, they had technical error live on TV and their timing was off.

The performers who did not made it were great and awesome. I think the audience choose the best and got it right. I hope they make good choices next time. Don’t give your children too much homework when school starts ask them who they like and want to win on America’s Got talent. Critical thinking and better choices make them independent decision maker. That’s what the judges are doing. Make your children judge which contestants are doing great and vote on America’s Got talent on NBC website and supervote on Google on Tuesday night after the program is over.  Watch the whole program first and then make your decision.

Trent Howard wins American Idol

Would you believe this is the last year of American Idol? It’s been on the air since the summer of 2002 for a trail run, and then it got picked for very winter spring seasons for the following year.

So now, the judges will either go on their separate ways or work together.

So no more of American Idol lights off, what’s left is Voice and America’s Got Talent on NBC.

And now for the final curtain for American Idol season 15 and the winner for the 2016 is

Trent-Harmon

 

Trent and LaPorsha

Congratulations to Trent Howard and La’Porsha Renae, they are both winners of American Idol. They both get a record contract and if they sell, then it is good all the contestants are winners in American Idol.

American Idol: the Farewell Season

Sonika Vaid was eliminated on the show on March 24, 2016.
Sonika Vaid was eliminated on the show on March 24, 2016.

If you have been watching American Idol: The Farewell Season, you may know it is still on and some of your favorites already gone. Why? Have you been watching it or voting your favorites to stay.

Basketball is good and rooting for your favorite team. But what about American Idol? Root for them and vote for them. The presidential debates are boring because they are repeating the same questions of what they would do as presidential and how would they fix the situation.

Soon American Idol will be gone forever. No more talented people will be discovered, they have to do it the hard way: audition and get rejected, that’s no good. American Idol has discovered many talented singers. Some of them got Grammies and working as actors on television shows such as Scorpion and Good Luck Charlie (2010 – 2014) and other prominent shows.

Simon Cowell was a great judge and that’s why we loved to watch him, his blunt positive criticism on contestants to become better singer. And he was funny with his remarks. Does that sound like Donald Trump? He’s a handful, let’s nominated Simon Cowell for President.

Simon Cowell retired from American Idol in 2010 and ever since, it is struggling to stay in the top 20. We need some shows that show case talented people and make their dream come true.

Simon-Cowell-AGT

Simon Cowell has another gig this summer; he will co-judge America’s Got Talent this summer of 2016, which will be interesting to watch.

Last shows for American Idol for 2016 are March 31, April 6 and 7 8pm on FOX network, watch it LIVE or DVR it.
