Last night on “America’s Got Talent”, the auditions continued and it centered on the delusional and not likely to go forward in the competition type of acts. That is not to say of course that there were indeed some very talented groups and individuals who will entertain for a very long time.
First up was the magician who uses women intuition, somewhat entertaining will have to do much better in the delivery in order to move on, but then came the 12 year-old singer who mesmerized everyone with his outstanding vocals. There were groups that sang original songs and displayed real talent, not only sang and played well, but also performed original catchy tunes that could elevate them to stardom, if they continue on that path. There were also comedians who at first look seemed as though they would just bomb, but wound up being hilarious with original material using their own personal flaws.
This season though, there have been many fascinating acts that auditioned early in the season, and to imagine any of the acts from last night dethroning those previous ones, seem unlikely. America will have a say in who stays and who goes, and America knows what it wants to see and above all recognizes talent, it will be disappointing to see some acts go and exhilarating to see others stay, and that brings up 2 acts from last night that just might create a buzz, the 42 year-old comedian who in his act pokes fun at being a father and family life, and the singer who in 2009 made it all the way to Las Vegas but was eliminated from the competition then.
The finalists will soon begin to perform, and America will vote for those who are favorites, this season will be exhilarating for some and disappointing for others, nevertheless, entertaining and mesmerizing at the originality and passion that until those performers came to “America’s Got Talent”, remained in the background.
