#31: Cast In Bronze (Season 7)
Cast In Bronze was more of a colossal tease than a letdown, and to be fair, it's one for which he is not solely responsible for.
Cast In Bronze did compete via Youtube after all, which means the AGT judges and producers should have known exactly what they were getting themselves in for when they agreed to include him in the running.
Still, if you're going to bring something to America's Got Talent that is so huge that even the AGT stage is not big enough to accommodate it, you had better have something amazing.
In AGT's entire seven-season history, the number of acts that needed a separate venue to perform can still be counted on one hand:
Of the three, Cast In Bronze was the only act to receive an X from any of the judges.
He received three, in fact, one of only three acts in the entirety of Season 7 to do so.
The reality is that the carillon, Cast In Bronze's instrument of choice, is a novelty; an interesting instrument to look at, but not a pleasant instrument to listen to. It might be appropriate for parades and renaissance festivals, but not an actual stage show.
The AGT producers and judges should have taken this into consideration before asking everyone in the audience to leave their seats and step outside. And so should have Cast In Bronze.
