These teams are moving ahead:
The Rhinestone Ropers – Dan and Melody presented a Wild West Skill Show of knife throwing and pistols. He threw knives from about 3 feet away to an outline of her body (I was not impressed), threw them as she spun attached to a wheel (I was very impressed) and she shot some water balloons he tossed up while sideways on the wheel.
Mona Lisa – 29 year old twin females who are good singers
Charles Pechacko – a juggler who performs in the dark like Defying Gravity
The Purrfect Angelz Dance Troupe – a routine set of dance moves by 8 Women
Daniel Joseph Baker – singer and piano player, he made it very clear by the way he sashayed on stage that he is quite different; however, he is a very good singer
Sandou Russian Bar Trio - a very pretty female who is an excellent gymnast does somersaults, twists and flips high above and descending to a 6 inch bar held by her husband and brother; this is incredibly dangerous, as evidenced by the withdrawal from the AGT3 competition of a Russian Bar Trio who should have won if their female had not been seriously injured in practice
LD Dance Company – a routine dance act
Dani Shay – she is a dead ringer for Justin Bieber at almost twice his age, but she has big-time talent for comedy, songwriting and singing which will take her a long way in this competition
Lil T (Tanner) – age 6 and cute as a button; he romps around the stage but is not going far in this competition; he did tell Nick Cannon before performing that Nick was his favorite dancer; Nick returned the favor by going on stage after the judging to demonstrate his moves with Lil T.
Professor Splash – he is hoisted up by an extended forklift to the height for his pool dive; last night it was 27 feet, but he promised to try it in the finale for a world record of over 36 feet; the dive is a belly flop into 12 inches of water in a children’s inflatable pool; this is very impressive and very dangerous
One act which was notable although not good enough was Johnny Di Dimenico attempting to impersonate Howie Mandel, but the audience and Howie did not find it up to the mark on quality, so he was eliminated.
The acts clearly going to the finals will be Professor Splash and the Sandou Russian Bar Trio. Dani Shay might make it.
Echo of Animal Gardens – Parrot Act
After saying some things in English, this parrot speaks Spanish, sings “Old McDonald,” does animal impressions (including farm animals, a cat, and a chihuahua), sneezes, cries, laughs, and sings “Over the Rainbow.” I was entertained.
This 36-year-old woman is dressed as an old lady playing the electric guitar. What were Howie and Sharon thinking? I guess it must be to annoy Piers once he found out the quality of acts they were putting through.
St. Lukes Bottle Band – Band
This band plays music with beer bottles and shooting corks out in the audience. Sharon and Howie vote them through even though they are inferior.
Nick brings out a cardboard cutout of Piers and places it in Piers’ chair.
Halls of Magic – Magician
He makes the female assistant disappear and shows some originality.
Lys Agnes – 27-year-old Singer
She sings one of many “Ave Maria” songs. I personally don't like her voice, but the judges and audience do.
Viva La Muerte
Without Piers there to enforce sanity, Howie and Sharon team up to let through a minimal talent act.
It took 18 hours to get to Minneapolis from New York, but finally Piers Morgan is in New York and on his way to the theatre. He walks on stage and rejoins the judges at the table. Hopefully now the judges can get back to business and take their jobs seriously.
Silhouettes - 9-18-year-old Dancers
They perform behind a screen, so we only see their silhouettes. Just average (sorry, franxaverian)
The Kinetic King (Tim Ford) – Chain Reaction Gadgets
His chain reaction of popsicle sticks is fantastic.
I find that Silhouettes is the only act worthy of the final 10.
