I used to watch Belgium's Got Talent, but I stopped because of too many bad/boring acts. A lot of these bad/boring acts went through to the next round, often because they had some sort of sad/cute/romantic story. For example, a guy did a marriage proposal on stage, so their act won that episode.

Now I only watch videos of Britain's Got Talent and America's Got Talent on Youtube. That way I only get to see the best/funniest acts anymore.

That's what pvrs are for. I watch it with my wife too, but never live. fast forwad button gets good use and reduces the show from 2 hours to 20 or max 30 minutes. We always make fun of them while fast forwarding, yeah yeah your cat died of cancer and you quit you job to be on the show because you need the money to give your mother a sex change operation, just go. Which is why Puddles was great, making his own sob story which was actually more entertaining than him singing royals.

The show also has an obsession with kids and the elederly. At least the grannies never make it far, dancing kids ugh. Plus those at the table magic card acts, really what's the point. Plus they are always easy to figure out if you simply think them through backwards. The worst was the magic 'guessing' of the iPhone unlock code. The fuck, a 5 year old can write an app that looks like an unlock screen and accepts any second input.

This so much. All kids who are just somewhat decent singers or dancers do extremely well on the show.

I do like Darci Lynne a lot though. Her acts perfectly combine entertainment, talent and originality. I think it's the first time a kid is one of my favorites.

He's such a strange act, but he somehow became one of my favorites too. A shame he lost to a singer :/

For some reason a lot of people I talked to couldn't realize the mistake I pointed out. The unlock transition was literally the biggest red flag to show it was all a joke. Card tricks aren't godly, but they're better than ones which are ridiculously easy to understand.

 

Also, Puddles sang Royals before. It was actually pretty good.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBmCJEehYtU

The issue is that they clearly tried too hard to overproduce it. Also, I have seen people say they dropped the mic which interrupted his singing. See the top comment of his live performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqlErxS43Vw 

In my opinion, a perfect song for the live shows would've been Space oddity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydhE7wThDtI 

 

Anyway, I guess I can't complain. Personally, i'd like to see Preacher Lawson or the ventriloquist win. Preacher is a memorable comedian who may not be george Carlin level, but his energy makes me appreciate him (along with him not needing to rely on dark humour). The ventriloquist is also amazing and one of the few moments I enjoy seeing singers.

Also, fuck heidi. What a dumbass host. Telling Puddles to be happy? The fuck? For Christ's sake how stupid can a person be

 

His cover of When I'm Down would also have been awesome; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B59pFr4l85c

Or, to mix things up, one of his smoosh-ups, like Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash to the tune of Pinball Wizard by The Who; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axHBwXeAaC8 Although I suppose he couldn't have used the voice multiplier on a stage performance. o.o In any case, I like Royals, but thought it was a bit of an odd pick, as it doesn't really flaunt his vocal talents. Even looking at just the stuff he did on Postmodern Jukebox, can think of a few songs that might have gone over better. Aw well. >.<



Zanten, Doer Of The Things

Unless He Forgets In Which Case Zanten, Forgetter Of The Things

Or He Procrascinates, In Which Case Zanten, Doer Of The Things Later

Or It Involves Moving Furniture, in Which Case Zanten, F*** You.

I haven't been watching, but this women literally made my eyes water.

Her talent goes far beyond simply having a good voice. If any singer derseves to win AGT it's her. I haven't seen much of the other acts but I'm sure she's defintely up there.

Heey, I watch this show too, haha. It's quite fun to see all those varying performances. I do kinda agree with you on the roller skaters. While it is crazy what they do, I feel like it's been the same thing more or less. I'm kinda mixed on the daredevil guy and his crazy hair. While his feats are crazy, I dunno if I would call those talented. Although, the things he's done have been quite dangerous and he makes them all look easy. Definitely agree with the ventriloquist singer. She's pretty damn amazing, being able to sing like that with her mouth closed, and her puppet acts have been pretty funny.

I've grown to love this show, haha.

I feel bad for forgetting about her. She definitely had a hurdle that impacted her singing significantly.

 

It's crazy to see how well she was at singing while being deaf. Imagine how she sang before she lost her hearing

I think he's talented in the sense that he's hilarious and an elite performer. I could easily see people paying big bucks in Vegas just to see his whacky performances. This man may not win AGT, but I truly believe he is someone who will be performing in big cities now. With such a wide audience, I'm sure many of these people have many chances now

That is true. I was glad to see him come back, even though he didn't make the cut before.

Tyra is getting on my nerves...the acts this year are kinda good actually. Specifically...the kids that sing and that black dude that sings. The magic acts kind of sucked this year(after the auditions) and range from boring to mediocre. It's still a good time to watch with friends and family.



After watching some of the other acts, damn their are so many good people I seriously can't decide who I like more.
