AGT5, ep. 10
This is a miscellaneous show where acts from all the sites were mixed up.
The Belly Dancing Duo 2 females age 32-26 -Sharon and Howie agree they have "T & T", timing and talent in their fast-paced solo accompanied by bongos. Howie says oozing and overflowing with talent. Piers said he could have watched that for months.
LIndsey Sterling, female age 23 - high energy hip-hop violinist
Team X-Pogo, Pogo Stick Performers 4 males ages 15-22 - they do flips and backflips on pogo sticks and double flips coming off them. Impressive!
Da Maniacs, 15 males ages 25-56 - dance troupe - Sharon said it's really move movement than dance, but she likes it anyway.
Rick Smith Jr., Card Thrower age 29 - world record holder in throwing playing cards, with Nick as his assistant holding celery. His speed was impressive as he made 2 clean cuts. He throws 92 miles per hour.
Phil Trau, male age 74 -tap dancer to the tune "Blackbird", who did a split causing Piers to take back his "x". Howie claimed to be dazzled. Sharon says he's "sexy Phil."
Luigi Seno, male age 20 - singer/guitarist singing a pop song that I am not familiar with (but the audience was). Nick said "that's talent" and he was right. Howie said "you are a great entertainer." Piers said "you've got this charm about you" and "he's a natural performer."
Arthur Nakane, male age 73 - one-man band that takes 3 hours to set up his instruments. He sings, plays guitar, has a keyboard somewhere and uses his feet to play a bass instrument. He is not a very good singer, but his act is very impressive. Sharon said entertaining. Howie voted no. Piers said he is not a great musician, but for sheer dedication and hard work he is sending him to Las Vegas.
Not Ready for Prime Time Acts
Jimmy Dinh, male age 36 - standup comedian who is so slow-paced that he got buzzed off. Howie tells him to be himself rather than playing another character. Piers says he is saying yes to make Jimmy feel better after Sharon and Howie had assured Jimmy of not going through. Sharon then called Piers an asshole.
Clownvis, Singing Clown age 28 - he pretends to be Elvis with his down-home approach; he actually has a decent voice but his choice of a song was Old McDonald had a Farm. He is really a Rodney Dangerfield style insult comic. He was joking around about Ozzie Osbourne, which prompted Sharon to tell him in no uncertain terms that "nobody disrespects my husband."
Sumo Champs, 4 male, 1 remale ages 25-39 - 3 sumo wrestlers with two assistants. The judges asked "what is the point?" I rather enjoy seeing sumo wrestling, not exactly a common performance in the U.S.
The Tap Dancing Sarah Palins, Comedy Dancers ages 24-38 - dance variety act with a costumed bear character that fizzled quickly.
Frequent Flyers Productions, 5 females ages 21-52 - aerialists who hung upside down. Howie stated that there "wasn't a move I couldn't do," so the women challenged Howie to do it. He did successfully and then voted them off.
There was an opportunity to vote for 40 acts on www.youtube.com/agt
but it had to be done by July 4 (so I missed out). I bet we will see the highest vote getters very soon, like in a special show tonight.
