America’s Got Talent Wednesday 7/01/2009

The 4th night of auditions for America’s Got Talent seemed to showcase more bad acts than good.  Piers Morgan, Sharon Osboure, and David Hasselhoff definitely hurt some people’s feelings on this program. They were brutally honest in face-to-face confrontation with acts who did not know how bad they were.

Contestants have to do their act very well.  When you sing off key, you don’t have talent no matter how hot you are. You shouldn’t sing while chopping vegetables with a lawn mower. Cowboys shouldn’t sing old world musical hits or do a spazz dance. Card tricks do not work–the audience will boo you off the stage if they’ve seen it before. Poets don’t work either. Singing deep baritone is not appealing. Wrestling should stay in the ring.

Lake Houston Performing Arts Center were 27 dancing girls with red headed Afro wigs who had extreme energy from the moment they stepped on stage. Pam Martin and Viva the dancing dog’s free-style routine was unique and entertaining. Joseph Constantine & CJ were kept in the competition through a split decision. Fuchsia Fox the belly dancer can really shake it. Circus R Us did not impress me with their seen-it-all-before circus act, but the judges liked them and advanced them to the next round in Vegas. Hurricane Trixters did a high energy martial arts routine. Hairo Torres stole the show with his break dancing abilities. He performed one of the most original routines I have ever seen. When he sat on the floor and successfully performed a 360 degree split, I was in shock and awe.

Tonight’s choice for getting to the top 10 is easily Hairo Torres. I don’t know if he could sustain my interest for the full length of a solo performance in Las Vegas, but he was unique, mesmerizing, and talented.

Once again, I have been watching AGT at the Munro House  from the comfort of my couch. It is my favorite program of the summer, and I look forward to seeing lots of unique performers.
