America's Got Talent 2013

Any planning on watching this season? They usually have some good novelty acts in addition to the usual singing and dance acts. Auditions start tonight at 9PM.

by Anonymousreply 15007/26/2014

It's in L.A.? How are they getting Howard to do it? Is he staying at his BFFs?

by Anonymousreply 106/04/2013

They held auditions in New York, Los Angeles and one other city. There's usually a few weeks of auditions before the show moves to Las Vegas and they start culling the acts. Quite a few good acts went through from the cities mentioned above (and some nice looking guys too). Of course there are always some jokey acts which go through as well. Can't believe they put the Booty guy through.

Just wondering. Hadn't seen the show before tonight. Listened to enough of Howard Stern to know that he hates to fly and will visit Jimmy Kimmel if he has to go to LA

Bumping for the live shows. The voting results should be interesting. I expect Collins the teenage magician to go through as well as the KriStef Brothers. I hope the screaming kids get kicked off.

Actually Mel B has lived in this country for a few years, as did the last British judge from this show, Sharon Osbourne, she spends more time in the US than in the UK.

Guess you don't realize how many famous foreign celebrities live in California and also in Manhattan. Walk around downtown Manhattan on any given day and play 'Spot the Celebrity', you'd be amazed how many famous actors, actresses and musicians live in Soho, Tribeca and The Village.

They're not related at all. I guess they're both straight. The one with the afro has a girlfriend/wife and baby. The blonde one sets off my gaydar so much but from looking at facebook I guess he has a girlfriend too. I really have a hard time believing he's into women. He always looks like he's in love with his "brother."

Kristef would make an adorable couple. They have quite the bromance. I want them to have little hand balancing babies.

Speaking of which.. what do we know about Alexander Magala? Gay? Straight? I'd love to do some sword swallowing with him.

by Anonymousreply 2909/15/2013

I don't get a gay vibe from the Kristef brothers, but they clearly know how homoerotic their act is and enjoy that. It was ridiculous that they got cut. That stupid kiddy ballroom act should've gone.

I liked Collins Key at first, but you can tell the attention has gone to his head and now he's a smug jerk.

And what's with all the acts have cutesy names for their fans? "Taylords"? It's even cloying when Lady Gaga, or someone genuinely famous, does it.

You're on a reality talent competition and will be forgotten by October. Next!

by Anonymousreply 3009/15/2013

Yeah, and Collins Key calls his fans Keypers. I can't stand him anymore. Cute young guy but he's gotten REALLY cocky. And he does a variation of the same exact trick every week (it's a prediction trick every damn week) and he doesn't even present it well. It's so long and drawn out and confusing, and very obviously staged. I also hate how he's always sticking his tongue out and saying "swag" and what not. I hate that the young girls keep voting him through because he's cute. Also, what's up with his name being Collins? Why not Collin? Stupid.

But what I'm really wondering is who the hell is voting for Jimmy Rose.

Kristef Brothers really should've gotten Jimmy or Collins spot. As far as their sexuality, I think they're straight, or at least Kris is. Stefan I could see being into guys.

I'm also surprised that Catapult got cut.

I hope Kenichi wins, or maybe Forte.

by Anonymousreply 3109/15/2013

I'm wondering if the homoeroticism in the Kristef Brothers' act is what cost them a spot. You know those fraus...stuffing their faces with their Olive Garden leftovers, voting, concerned about their littly Justyns and Madylyns....

Speaking of the family friendly Kristefs... I was looking at their FB page and saw a response they posted to a fan a few days ago (before they got cut), it sounded like they would be getting naked again for the finals if they had made it there. Now I'm even more upset that they got eliminated. Instead of hot naked guys we will get to hear Jimmy Rose butcher another song. Damn it, America.

by Anonymousreply 4909/15/2013

There are so many negative sexist gay men on this thread.

Then you wonder why people stereotype gay men? Re-read your posts! Most of you are stereotypes.

First off, both Mel B and Heidi were raised in Europe, perhaps their idea of entertainment is a lot different than the average gay man?

Perhaps all the judges are actually voting on talent over appearance? All I am reading here is how hot these guys are and how you want to fuck them, so what else is new?

Is there any other perspective you have on people other than the fuck-a-bility factor?

Damn, you guys sound so juvenile.

As for the Kristef Brothers, if you weren't spending so much time drooling over their cocks and asses, you'd be aware they explained on the show that they've known each other since they were kids.

by Anonymousreply 5009/15/2013

I've watched this show since season 1 and have seen a bunch of crappy singers win, but if Jimmy Rose wins that will be the final straw for me. I'll be done. He can't sing for shit and he also messed up the lyrics this past week. But he's a coal mining country singing military veteran with a mom who has congestive heart failure though so he gets put through week after week. BS. I'll also have a fit if the cocky teen magician wins, but I think Jimmy winning is more likely.

I know they didn't have a chance of winning but I definitely would've rather seen another goofy acrobatic routine from Kristef or even more Catapult or the kid dancers.

by Anonymousreply 5109/15/2013

Does anyone else hate Taylor? I hate how he laughs after every single joke he tells. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if his laugh didn't sound like Spongebob. I really don't get why teen girls are going so crazy over this guy. Collins I can understand but not Taylor.

Also, who is voting for Cami Bradley? I don't get that.

by Anonymousreply 5209/15/2013

I think this year's finale will be pretty good. My least favorite is Jimmy Rose.

I could deal with any of the others winning. My bet is that it will be Forte.

Low class show with no talent wannabes for low class viewers. To get ahead in early rounds be a veteran, sick or disabled (especially children), homeless or poverty stricken (especially children), use the flag as a prop and tour 'Murican superiority. That last one worked best when Piers was on the show as the British baddie. But such esteemed judges as the drunk from Knight Rider, Howard Stern, and Howie Mandel exemplify the demographic they're going after.

by Anonymousreply 5709/16/2013

I agree, there is way too much emphasis on back stories on this show. I was shocked by how far that boring military wives choir made it. And no way is Jimmy Rose still on this show because of his talent, because he doesn't have any. That guy has the ultimate back story with being a vet, a coal miner, country singer, and now we find out that his mom has heart problems. We have Collins Key getting through week after week because 12 year old girls think he's cute and because he keeps reminding us that he's single and swaggy. Actual entertaining and talented acts like the Kristef Brothers get sent home because they don't have a sob story.

My favorite acts are all gone now. I liked Timber Brown (though I guess I can enjoy him in a porno now), Duo Resonance, and Alexandr the sword swallowing pole dancer.

I want Forte or Kenichi to win, but I bet Jimmy takes it all in the end. The guy from Forte actually does look like James Deen. Hey, maybe when he loses to Jimmy Rose and the whole opera singer thing doesn't work out he can get into porn.

by Anonymousreply 5809/16/2013

I disagree, R53. Out of all the reality competition series, I think it's the best because it does feature a variety of different talents. It's not just a bunch of wannabe pop stars singing Adele covers. It's probably the most mainstream outlet for interesting artists.

The big problem is that America votes and usually votes for the most obvious and pandering acts to go through.

There is way too much emphasis on backstories, R54. But the worst offender of that is The Voice. For a show that prides it's whole existence on the quality of the performer's voice, they really go into overdrive with their Here Comes The Waterworks sob stories i.e. the girl who lived in a house with mold.

I'm not super into Kenichi but I get that what he does takes a lot more planning, creativity, practice, and precision than say, a singer. I would be happy if he won.

by Anonymousreply 6209/16/2013

My picks, from least favorite to most: Jimmy Rose, Cami Bradley, Collins Key, Taylor Williamson, Forte, Kenichi Ebina. Forte and Kenichi would be tied but I think the latter puts more into act creatively-speaking.

by Anonymousreply 6309/16/2013

I think the results will shake out something like this

6th place Cami 5th Taylor 4th Collins (or maybe swap Taylor and Collins... I would imagine that most viewers, except the teen girls, are losing interest in Collins more and more every week)

The top 3 will be Jimmy, Forte, and Kenichi. Kenichi will probably get the dreaded 3rd place (best act every year gets it), and Forte and Jimmy will duke it out for the win. I'm not into Forte but those guys can really sing and Jimmy can't, so it would be ridiculous for Jimmy to win over them, but I can honestly see it happening. Hopefully it won't though.

Forte definitely deserved to place higher but I think they just didn't have that obsessive voting fan base like the other acts did.

There's a group of people spewing racist nonsense all over twitter and youtube in regards to Kenichi winning. Why do I have a feeling this is the same group of people who voted Jimmy Rose through every week?

Who cares if a zipper head won?

Forte got a record deal with Syco/Columbia.

Also, everyone's favorite porn star Timber Brown has some kind of gig opening and closing for Kylie Minogue.

The only thing I've ever learned from this show is that actually, America doesn't have talent. Or, if it does, it's not on this piece of shit show.

Yep. Forte signed with Syco Records. Aka the record company that Simon Cowell, creator of AGT, owns. It's a huge reason why we'll never be rid of the singers on the show. Because they make money off of them after the show is done by signing them to their record label.

Has anyone here ever listed to Special Head's music? My god, it's terrible! I like Crack Head Shuffle. He should come back to AGT next year as a singer.

Speaking of music, the one hit wonder Booty hits iTunes tomorrow. Anyone going to buy it?

Anyone watching this season? I like the 9 year old genius piano playing kid.

There is a thread for the 2014 season but I can't seem to find it using search. I can't stand the piano playing kid -- he came across as too snotty and bratty to me which put me off immediately, no matter his playing ability. It looks like we have two hunky singer / guitarists -- the adopted guy and the Latino looking guy. I can't wait for more novelty acts.

I don't know where the 2014 thread is, but is anyone watching? This season isn't as good as last season IMO. Auditions are over and I don't know who to root for yet. Nobody has really stood out. Way too many singers with sob stories, as alwats.

I did like Smoothini the magician and those young boys who played Jimi Hendrix on the cellos, and the young 20-something handbalancing guy who balanced on one finger. But with most of the acts, I have no interest in seeing any of them again.

Howard and Howie always save / put through the most asinine acts. Okay, Dustin's Dojo was a funny act -- one time. Just as with Howie's act, the internet comedy duo who sang the Ratchet song, what are they going to do for a follow up?

I think this week they start cutting acts.

Howie and Howard used their golden buzzer but what about Heidi and Mel? Can it only be used in the original audition rounds or any time in the competition?

Mel B is growing on me but Heidi is really worthless as a judge. All she ever does is say stuff like "I really liked it" "That was good" etc. or parrots what the other judges have said. They need to get rid of her.

I don't know what backstage drama someone on another board is talking about, but I can confirm that there was going to be some kind of sexual harassment (or whatever) storyline with Scotty and Christina. Every once in awhile I manage to get my hands on GH breakdowns and on April 1st of this year I got breakdowns and that was one of the stories outlined in it. She was going to accuse him of making a pass at her because she was mad about the affair with Lucy. Franco was going to be involved in the story too and support Scott, and I think Bobbie too. Mac and Felicia were going to walk in on Scotty with his hands all over a crying Christina during a confrontation and Christina and her BF were going to go on the run. The storyline was obviously scrapped and Lucy/Scotty were off screen for about 2 months until this week and now we suddenly have this out-of-nowhere triangle with Bobbie, so I can completely believe that one of the actors had a fit and things got dropped and rewritten.

WRONG THREAD... whoops!

I can't believe they put those card throwing kids straight through. Once again Howie puts through the dumbest acts imaginable.

I really like Christian Stoinev and his dog. He's got a great body. And Matt Franco the magician is hot.

Golden buzzer acts were a total waste.

How in the world did Juan Carlos the rollerblader make it through? Fun guy but the act isn't good. You know Howie pushed hard for him to go through. Watch him get eliminated and then Howie will bring him back as a wildcard just to piss Howard off. He'll be this year's Big Barry.

I was shocked they sent home the war vet with the prosthetic leg simply because AGT lives for that kind of backstory.

How in the world is anxiety girl going to be able to perform at Radio City? Will she cry and have panic attacks backstage every week and then have Howie give her a pep talk before every performance? What happens when she gets eliminated? Will she break down on stage? Come on.

And as usual, way too many singers but at least there doesn't seem to be any county bumpkin hillbillies this year like Jimmy Rose and Marty Brown.

by Anonymousreply 14807/25/2014

They may have put Juan Carlos through because the show needs a certain number of variety acts, but if so, I'm sure they could have found someone much better.

BTW, it's probably a foregone conclusion, but I'm betting that the Willis Clan - the singing group of brothers and sisters (I think 10 or so of them) - are part of the Quiverful movement like the Duggars. Just like the latter, every child has a "J" name and the background film of them showed them living in some rural, rustic cabin.

Willis Clan obviously ran out of names after awhile because one of the kids is named Jedi.
