Howie thinks he found a winner in William, the larger-than-life musician. But which acts are giving him a run for his money?
The July 24 episode of America’s Got Talent found the final 12 acts taking to the stage hoping to prove to America that they were worth voting for to send through to the semifinals. (For the record, most were “painfully entertaining.”) Horse demonstrated his superhuman powers, while Eric Dittelman used his mind-reading powers to take a jab at Howie Mandel. Other acts, like Lindsay Norton, delivered stellar dance moves, while Sebastien “El Charro de Oro” supplied the charm.
12 acts. 90 seconds. 1 chance. Which acts proved to be ‘Toxic” on stage — and which ones hit their sweet spot?
On the July 17 episode, as with every telecast, America’s Got Talent plastered “Go Big, or Go Home” across the screen, but who really brought the “chills and the thrills and the spills?” (Thank you, Howard Stern) On a night that mattered most, the 12 acts that took the stage caught fire but quickly fizzled. The buzz and talent was there, but most failed to live up to their full potential.
12 more acts took to the stage to wow America with jaw-dropping magic, heart-stopping body bending and hilariously inappropriate comedy.
On the July 10 episode of America’s Got Talent, a dozen more acts attempted (sometimes quite horribly) to impress the panel and the crowd with their talent. Some flipped a pop song on its head or pulled out all the stops to reach new heights in spectacle, while others played it too safe, just when their lives depended on it the most. Find out how your favorite act performed after the jump.
‘AGT’ kicked off its first live show with Howie’s blackhead surgery, the revelation that Sharon calls Ozzie ‘Daddy,’ and 12 acts vying for America’s vote.
(I was so enthralled with the first half hour of completely ridiculous filler that I almost forgot what tonight is actually about.)
On the July 2 episode — dubbed the first round of the quarter-finals — America’s Got Talent skyrocketed with two and a half hours at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Twelve acts took to the electrically bright stage to prove to America, by way of an eclectic judging panel, that they were worthy of $1 million and the chance to headline a show in Las Vegas. (Now, that’s some major do-re-me). How did your favorite act fair when the heat was turned up? Check out the sweet-n-sour (no, not chicken) recap after the jump.
The first Vegas round proved to be too much for some Americans, as singers, performers and stunt men took to the stage to impress — but ended up crashing and burning.
On the June 25 episode of America’s Got Talent, hundreds of teary-eyed contestants were thrust into the limelight. Under the shimmering lights of Las Vegas, the judges had to whittle the talent pool from to a meager 48. As the night progressed, Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne had their work cut out for them as truly talented — and quite unique — acts morphed into sweaty balls of nerves up on stage. (Even one of my personal faves just did not deliver.) Find out which acts stumbled, fumbled, and forgot the words in this easy-to-use recap!
Have you ever wondered what Marilyn would sound like as an opera singer? ‘AGT’ has your answer.
The June 5 episode of America’s Got Talent brought the team back to Austin, and boy were they in for quite a surprise! There was the usual artistic light show acts and guitar-toting singers, but none of those were the cream of the crop. Andrew De Leon — who is clearly inspired by Marilyn Manson — was, perhaps, the biggest surprise yet of the season. But that’s not all! With the assistance of a pole-dancing Nick Cannon, the panel uncovered several rare gems that should do well in this competition.
Let’s break down the top five acts of the night, shall we?
Did ‘AGT’ witness the rise of the next Michael? Meet the winner of one of the best auditions in TV history!
The May 29 episode of America’s Got Talent found Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel in St. Louis, where they found an incredibly talented six-year-old performer who just might be the best thing to happen to prime time television (but more on him later). With the assistance of Nick Cannon, viewers were also treated to eye-stretching talent that ran the gamut from breathtaking antics to life-threatening shenanigans.
Adam’s new ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ music video has us going all ‘1984’ up in here!
The pop beats and clever hook are set to a futuristic setting as Adam Lambert portrays an inmate in a high-tech society where he is just a face in the crowd. From the first images of a colorless world to the prisoners popping little blue and white pills, Adam is sending a pretty strong message about individuality and keeping an open mind.
What was YOUR favorite act of the night? See our top three picks!
Talent scorched the Tampa Bay stage May 28 as Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Howard Stern hoped to find a million-dollar act. Legions of hopefuls showcased a wide range of talents — hoop dancing, off-key singing, and more — with the hope of getting that life-changing “Yes” to Las Vegas. In the hour-long segment, however, only a handful proved to have the talent to take them far.
Jessica may have finished in second place on ‘American Idol,’ but the big-voiced diva is already looking to the future — and her debut album!
HollywoodLife.com chatted with Jessica Sanchez after the May 23 finale of American Idol, and she revealed she wants to be “more like Rihanna,” but also “kind of Beyonce” as an artist. “I don’t want to compare myself to anybody,” she told us. “I want to be somebody new, too.” With her powerful voice and full-on swagger, she would certainly fit right in in today’s pop music scene. Her R&B roots will serve her well as she moves forward to carve out her own niche of “not straight pop.”
Jessica Sanchez is the latest in a five-year stretch of snubbed ladies. Is there an ‘American Idol’ curse on the girls?
American Idol crowned its newest WGWG (“white guy with guitar”) as the winner on the May 23 season finale. After five months filled with clever guitar-strumming twists on popular songs, Phillip Phillips once again demonstrated the power of female voters and their desire to see the continued male domination of Fox’s No. 1 show. Even if this so called “desire” to see their Hollywood crush come out on top is a subconscious thing, it has me wondering if a girl will ever be able to win this show again.
‘AGT’ stayed in the Big Apple on May 22, with acts ranging from acrobatic balancers to stand-up comics to a pink-haired drag queen.
“I gotta feeling it’s going to be a great day,” host Nick Cannon asserted from his helicopter looming over the Statue of Liberty on the May 22 episode of America’s Got Talent — and it was. This episode demonstrated the pure golden talent that still flourishes across the country; and not only was the talent mind-blowing, but it was some of the most original we’ve seen yet.
Week two brought ‘AGT’ to the city that never sleeps. From an adorable dog crew to the ‘Grandfather of Rap,’ the May 21 episode was the most entertaining of the season so far.
“Does New York have talent?” host Nick Cannon boomed at the top of the hour. Judges Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Howard Stern took to the streets of New York City to an answer that question and find their million-dollar act. Arriving in their luxurious limos, they did not know what to expect. Surely, what they did not expect to find was that rap fever had struck the Big Apple.
With only one week until the season finale, everyone’s dreams are on the line: Does Rachel get a second chance at NYADA? Will Puck get to graduate? Read on & find out.
On this week’s Glee double header (“Props” and “Nationals”), McKinley High morphed into an episode of The Twilight Zone after Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) experienced a nasty fall. Her untimely injury caused her to slip into a dream-like state — where everyone switched bodies.
(Yup, you read that correctly.)
The second night of the ‘America’s Got Talent’ season premiere upped the ante in even more exciting and unexpected ways. Whether you were a fan of concept painters or extreme contortionists, there was something for everyone to dig into.
Much like last night’s episode, Howard Stern did not hesitate to deliver pointed and truthful critiques to over two dozen hopefuls featured in the telecast. Rounding out the panel, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel continued to motivate the truly talented individuals and (gently) crushed the dreams of others. With the help of Nick Cannon, the two-hour episode did not disappoint — as the show traveled to San Francisco!
