I go off line when I move to the TV room so I'll comment on it tomorrow.
I hope we enjoy this week more than last week.

And did you, Starz?  I liked three or four of them.  I don't like the danger acts, so the motorcycle guys did nothing for me.  I absolutely won't watch, and didn't watch, the guy who tosses his cookies as an act.  The mentalist is someone I'd rather see on the "Penn & Teller: Fool Us" show because I'm pretty sure it's all a magic trick.  I liked people who sang.  The blind guy is an inspiration, but not the best dancer.  The man and woman who seemed to be dancing as Adam and Eve, sort of, are still spectacular dancers.  The comic with the slow delivery is hilarious.  The woman who closed singing whatever-it-was from Les Miz is jaw-dropping.

I guess we'll find out who continues on Wednesday night.

Twelve acts and for me, only five were worth watching.  I think Alicia ("You Put a Spell on Me") was great.

I'm not a particular fan of bluegrass, so I wouldn't pay to see Mountain Faith.  I think I'm just a sucker for anything with a banjo.  They're appealing.

The Mentalist had me wondering, "How'd he do that?"

Daniella has the voice of an angel.

And I loved Freelusion.  PS:  That guy has thighs like tree trunks.  Lord, the muscle on him!

I was at a business meeting last night and didn't get home until 8:45, so I had to watch off the DVR.  I was trying to get to bed at a reasonable hour, so I was ff'ing through everything except the actual act itself and the judges' comments.  Looks like I somehow managed to ff through 2 of the acts - the family dance group and the motorcycle people.  I deliberately ff'd through the "professional regurgitator."  Cannot watch that.  Just grosses me out.

For the rest, I thought most did pretty well.  I liked both individual singers as well as Selected of God and Faith Mountain Band.  The mentalist was outstanding - I have no idea how they do that.  Freelusion was good, but I didn't think this was their best performance, but the blind kid did give his best, I thought, so I threw a few votes his way.

I was really angry with the judges for buzzing DADitude.  Yes, they were not great, but they didn't stink up the place either.  And the darn judges are the ones who put them through after they failed to be voted in by America.  They weren't great the first times we saw them, so what exactly did the judges expect?  That was just so incredibly rude to me, and the guys looked pretty discouraged.  Very badly done, judges.  They need to take those buzzers away at this point.  Just let the acts perform.

I forgot to mention Selected of God, who are absolutely outstanding.  It's a real pleasure to listen to them.

I agree with you, LadyMustang, that the judges shouldn't use the buzzers at this point.  This is the point at which America votes, not the judges.

I was not over whelmed with last night's show and only cared for a few of the acts.  I did like the Mountain Band and did not even watch any of the regurgitating man's act and can't for the life of me understand why the judges think he is so wonderful.   Yuck

I did not think it was right for the judges to buzz the Daditude either and especially to have all four of them do it.  Those buzzes should be disabled at this point and time of the competition IMO.

It's time for the AGT Dunkin' Save.  Your three choices of acts to save are:

Benjamin Yonattan
Daniella Mass
Gary Vider

Log on to Google, type "AGT Dunkin' Save" in the search box, make your choice by clicking on the act you want to save, then click Submit.

I voted to save Daniella Mass.

I voted to save Daniella as well, although I do really like Gary as well.  I'm hoping the judges' will save whichever of these two the voters don't save.

SPOILER ALERT (in case you haven't watched the show yet):  Who the heck is voting for the Professional Regurgitator?  How the h-e-l-l does he make it through on viewer votes while Daniella and Gary need to be 'saved?'  My apologies to anyone here who likes PR, but I just cannot with that guy.  It makes me physically ill to watch him, so I don't.  I leave the room or like last night fast forward through it.  To me he is just plain gross, and there is no way in the world I can imagine people actually spending money to watch him swallow and regurgitate stuff for an hour or two in a show.

Let me tell you, only twenty-four (24) votes separated the top two, out of 150,000 votes.  It was Gary Vider got the Dunkin' Save.

That is a really, really, really razor-thin margin.  Even thinner than your average tissue paper.  Maybe even thinner than phyllo dough.  I mean, was that close or what?

And I hope that Daniella gets saved by the judges.

Extremely thin Dunkin' Donuts!

Post by Walker7 on Wed Aug 26, 2015 9:02 pm

Daniella is saved!  Good job, judges!  She led during most of the Dunkin' Save.

Doesn't Daniella look like Anna Kendrick?  I think so.

And wow, that Dunkin' Save was so extremely close.  It can't get much closer!  24 votes?  Out of 150,000 votes, that's only 0.016% difference.  I mean, a smidgeon more than one hundredth of a percent!

I'm glad that Daniella was saved as well, but this just reinforced for me once again the utter stupidity of the Dunkin Save.  Millions of voters voted last night, and their votes are essentially thrown out regarding the 6th and 7th place acts and replaced by the votes of a mere 150,000 people.  That's probably a single-digit percentage of the people who voted last night.  Dumb dumb dumb.

I agree, SLA.  I didn't watch that portion last night because I find the whole thing disgusting.

I didn't watch that portion either.  If this is what they call talent and feel it is worthy of a Million dollar prize and a Las Vegas show I guess either my taste is all in my mouth or that is where their taste begins and ends.   Pull hair

I did not get to watch either night this week. Tuesday night I had web server problems I needed to fix asap. Today I was in Medford Oregon all day and got home close to 10. Oh well. Not the end of the world.

Aside from Mr. Up-Chuck, I thought the right people made it through.  It's long been a pet peeve of mine to see all the throwing up that goes on in tv and movies.  Now, my fears have been given validity.  Vomiting is considered a talent, apparently by real people.

Mark my words, folks.  It won't be long before we see people lighting farts on AGT.  Evidently, a large number of the viewing audience has an appetite for the gross.  Perhaps we'll be treated to an actual "pissing contest?"

Count me out.

I know, right?  I kept thinking to myself - where is Howard and his do you think this is a million dollar act shtick?  I am seriously pissed that some very good acts (self-taught former prison magician comes immediately to mind) were let go while they keep this guy.  Really, show?

I agree, singly.  I've asked myself several times this season - what were they thinking?  I'm not a fan of Ira, but I can at least see where others could be.  But Upchuck guy?  No.  I know he's not actually vomiting - all he ever brings up is whatever he swallowed, and I have no idea how he manipulates things in his stomach (assuming he actually does and isn't at least part magic act), but neither do I care.  The whole idea is just gross.  When they do thinks like put the 'professional hugger' through . . . really?  That's a 'talent?'  At best that's a job  . . . maybe.  I'm not even sure about that.  Or the guy who threw himself on tacks.  Gross.  It makes no sense to me, but maybe they feel they have to somewhat appease the basest level of their audience.  I mean heaven forbid they should ask their audience to class up and appreciate actual talent.

Perhaps it's a new demand for the Carnival Sideshow acts.
