America’s Got Talent has the eyes of America watching. With 12 acts competing for the four slots on the show this week, there is no doubt it was a Tuesday night thrill especially if you caught the last act Sandou Trio Russian Bar with the fire and nails under the performer who flew through the air. Did you see everything? There were a few moments that you might have missed and they make the show even more insane:
- The bird Echo had a fan club in the audience. Echo of Animal Gardens brought along his girlfriend on stage to share the moment but he brought along some of his peeps in the audience. While this bird can talk, the question has to be can he read? His squawking human pals had signs out and waving as the birdie took to his act. Ever the professional, Echo didn’t respond to the extra chatter, but he probably noticed the big yellow bird on the sign.
- The noise of the Fearless Flores Family motorcycles was deafening. Yes, we do mean very, very loud. The motorcycles in such a small space really didn’t do well for live television as revving up to make the show worthwhile meant having the machines ready. With the noise and smell it was a bit much. Worth it after the performance? You betcha! But with four motorcycles promised if they make the cut could somebody suggest going outside?
- Sandou Trio Russian Bar had a minor mishap that didn’t show on the performance, but had to unnerve the acrobat. The fire scene of the finale didn’t start as planned. Scheduled to lit four strips, it appeared that only two and a half actually lit up. Which still would have been dangerous, but luckily nobody got hurt as she did the act perfectly.
- During the Dezmond Meeks performance, the acrobat on the chandelier did an amazing job showing off her talents. Cut off with part of Meeks performance on the piano, it was such a beautiful moment to watch this dancer use a chandelier to hoist and perform Yes, we know Meeks was the highlight, but when someone can maneuver an object with grace and ease like she did and still return to the ground safely, props have to be given.
- The Howie Mandel poker used at the beginning of the show appeared to be an office pointer. Used by professors and other scholars to prove a point, it was quickly turned into rubbish when Piers Morgan bent it up in bits.
America’s Got Talent took on the odd, bizarre and beautiful on Tuesday night. There is no doubt this show will have America phoning in their favorites as the acts brought together the some of the best entertainment found from sea to shining sea. Wednesday the acts return with the four top favorites moving on and the rest being sent home.
