Tonight was kind of a mash-up, the best of the rest…or worst, as the case may be. As usual, though, I’m only going to focus on the acts that made it through.
Lilliana the baby tap dancer-Holy crap! That was totally not what I was expecting, she did an amazing job. I see at least top 40 in her future.
Midnight circus-miscellaneous circus things, not very memorable. I don’t see them getting out of Vegas.
Boy band-One guy had on a Union Jack shirt, maybe? Again, not very memorable, least of all because they only showed them for a short time. It was a very generic boy/rock band that won’t make it out of Vegas
Stripy lockers-A couple of hiphop/lockers that were decent, but due to the strong competition in the dance group this year, won’t make it out of Vegas.
Soulful black guy-He was only on for a couple of seconds, so I don’t really have an opinion. Maybe to the end of Vegas, but not top 40?
Impressionist-Yet another act zipped through so we could watch the inane pick dress girl that was only there to meet Howard Stern. Wild guess is perform in Vegas, but not past that.
Old tappers-These were two little old bitties that could actually tap. It was cute for sure, but they were way too slow to make it past Vegas, and I don’t even see them performing there, to be honest.
Nerdy comedian-funnier than he looked! I expected this guy to suck royally, but he was really funny! If he has a good second set, I can see top 40 in his future.
787 Puerto Rico dance-generic hiphopper/lockers. Again, the dance groups are so strong this year, I don’t see them moving past Vegas, unless the other groups fail miserably.
Mary Joyner-singer, Flo-Jo’s daughter. She was decent, and has a good story, but again, her voice wasn’t that strong. I’m seeing the end of Vegas for her, but not into the top 40.
Next week, we have Vegas! I’m hoping to look back at my predictions, and see how well I did(or didn’t) do for the different groups.
