Last night, the America’s Got Talent auditions took place in Houston and Minneapolis. Did you watch? If you’re still catching up like I am, watch full streams of the show below.  Don’t feel like slogging through the entire show? Watch the best auditions of last night’s show via AmericasBestTalent.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but  America’s Got Talent 6 is NOT making me want to kill people after watching it. There are sob stories, but I don’t feel like I’m being hit over the head like in the past. The episodes are well paced and entertaining. The talent is disosable, but fun to watch. I’ll be watching the rest of the season.

 

America’s Got Talent

Week 2, Night 2 – Part 1

Week 2, Night 2 – Part 2

The Rhinestone Ropers – Houston

SCARY Knife throwing act. The dude has skillz, but I really hate these old fashioned “women in peril” routines. Treating women like objects is not cool.

Daniel Joseph Baker 19 – Houston

Daniel’s cover of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” is fun and SUPER FIERCE.

Sandou Trio Russian Bar – Houston

There was a Russian Bar act that made the semi-finals a few seasons ago, but had to drop out due to injury. Not surprised. This sh*t looks super-dangerous.

Dani Shay – Houston

The lesbian Justian Bieber. Ok. I have no idea if Dani is a lesbian or not. But still. She does a very funny take on “Baby”.

Lil T. – 6 Years Old – Houston

I generally HATE the kiddie acts, but this young boy is a pretty good hip-hop dancer–for a 6 year old.

Darren Taylor – Houston

Totally crazy dude dives into 12 inches of water. The kiddie pool he jumped into was set on top of some sort of mattress.

Echo of Animal Gardens – Minneapolis

Another talking bird act. Really?

Lys Agnes – Minneapolis

This opera singer, who performs “Ave Maria” hasn’t performed since her fiance was killed in a car crash two years ago. She’s carried on her backstory a bit. But still, the sob story is presented in straightforward way–I didn’t really mind it.

Those Funny Little People – Minneapolis

Uhm. I’m with Piers on this one. NO.

Silhouettes – Minneapolis

Group of dancers, age range from 9 – 18, dance prettily behind a scrim.

The Kinetic King – Minneapolis

Chain reaction king! You betcha. Lulzy, yet kind of amazing.

    AGT is a great show for summer. Lots of variety – diversity, silliness and some good quality talent. Doesn’t take itself seriously. Nick Cannon is a sweet, funny host. I find it very entertaining.

    I loved that silhouette dance – I could be very entertained by that. And the little Tanner hip-hopper was all kinds of adorable. They’ve trained him to that one song, I believe.

    But Daniel!?!!!11! Eleventy! He was awesome!

    ETA: And I totally love Sharon and Howie as judges. And Nick as host – they do a good and entertaining job. Piers – eh.
