America’s Got Talent–it just goes on and on and on and on…

The audition rounds were endless. And now, this middle round–I guess you could call it the Top 48 + took 6 weeks to slog through. The semi-final round begins, mercifully, next week. And hey, if we’re lucky, it’ll all be over by Christmas?

Anyhoo. Tonight’s show was a wildcard round, with Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel bringing back acts that didn’t make it through initially.

And, since we mostly didn’t want to see them the first time around, the second time is certainly not the charm, with a couple of exceptions:

The aerialists,   Michael Lipari and Ashleigh Dejon put on a truly breathtaking show.  The comedian Doogie Horner was so beyond stupid, he was actually funny and the magician, Michael Grasso, who should have gone through the first time, was entertaining.

The ballroom dancing pair, Anna and Patryk were very good, but I don’t like the kiddie acts on principal–two 12 year olds should be out playing or something–not endlessly practicing ballroom moves.

The rest were too boring to even snark on, really.  I couldn’t bring myself to mock horrible kid rapper, CJ Dippa.  He choked and knew it.  Do we really need a live rendition of Gaga’s “Alejandro” played on the harmonica? No, we don’t.  Not really sure why they keep bringing back that kite kid, Connor Doron, except for his backstory. Really?  Kite flying? Zz. and the very last act–Swing Shift Side Show–was another one of those gross-out acts that I definitely could have done without.
