I’m WAY over these auditions. Thankfully, this week is the last. Vegas week begins next Tuesday with a Two Hour special, and then the Top 40 are revealed on Thursday.
This week, auditions submitted via My Space are featured…
Recap and Videos After the JUMP…
Michael Trixx – Magician – Michael does a “Rock and Roll” magic show. Sharon calls him a “rock and roll hobbit.” Actually, he looks a little like her husband. He looks so upset when the judges tell him he sucks. Which he does. – VIDEO
Diva Boy and the Sexplosion Dancers – Eh…What the hell? – VIDEO
Randy Hanson – An Ozzie Impersonator that Sharon actually seems to enjoy. They send him on to Vegas. – VIDEO
Holly Stone – Sob Story #1: Holly gave her baby up for adoption when she was 18. And she found her. Guess where. My Space!!! And now here she is, singing on America’s Got Talent, with her daughter waiting in the wings. She’s got a decent voice, nothing spectacular. But that backstory is hard to resist. The judges advance her to Vegas. – VIDEO
The Cadence – A percussion group–basically the Blue Man Group without the crazy blue faces. Not bad. Piers and Sharon thinks they need backing music. Sharon says no, Piers and Hoff say yes. Man, that judges bit, with Piers hesitating before he says yes, was so set up! Please. – VIDEO
Sweetones – A mother daughter act. These two whistle out of tune. I’m beginning to get really cranky here! “Irritating, pointless, childish and a waste of time,” says Piers. Oh sorrow, my computer ate the clip I recorded, so you all will just have to imagine how much this bit sucked.
Specialist Daniel Jens – Sob Story #2 – And it’s time to pull out the patriot card! Soldier makes his fellow soldiers in Iraq feel better when he serenades them on guitar. He sings “I’ll Be” and he’s…pretty amateur. His wife waits backstage. But then, who cares if he can sing! He’s got the greatest back story evah! Well, at least Piers is honest and says he’s got to work on his singing. But still, the judges do not hesitate to advance him to Vegas. – VIDEO
