All ten acts rated---purely my opinion-What's yours?
1. At Last - Fantastic harmonies, I think they are excellent. I did like "Ain't no Sunshine when She's Gone" from last time better but that's purely because that's one of my favorite songs. I think they stand a really good chance of winning the show and even more importantly I think they can have a lasting career:star I even remembered them days after they performed. "There was an oriental fusion rap/jazz/ a capella group that was really good. I think they have a great chance to win."
Please don't harangue me for using oriental. There's nothing wrong with it. It means east. You can call me occidental all you want. Besides, I'm 1/2 Asian but I'm Caucasian. Asian is far too vague and politically correct...Which is invariably incorrect.
2.Natasha Lee - Incredible piano. I love Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" and she played it flawlessly. Whether she wins or not; she won't starve!:violin She is a virtuoso in the making.
3.Realis - Impressive, gymnastic, exciting, no mistakes but I wouldn't pay to see it. It's somewhat like the Olympics without the competition. I think they are truly good and I was impressed with the tosses but still they only rank third for me.
4.Vladimir - Was better last time. He wasn't as stable or exciting this time. For a similar act, Rialis was far more interesting
5.Bobby Badfingers - Definitely a unique talent. His dancing is theatrical but doesn't necessarily help. Although he can be a bit funny. He was much better last time. I didn't think he carried the rhythm of the song like he did last time. Guilty pleasure is apropos.
6.Mark the Knife - Toddler flame, not cute, funny or interesting. Catching the doll, no more interesting than catching anything else. Now the lawnmower- interesting but not very. The crack about the British food was the funniest and most interesting thing of the act.
7.Diversity-BORING!!! If you want a capella, just look to At Last. Brandy is the most honest, most accurate judge. Who'd'a thunk it? Although about the clothes, on stage I think they were fine. Out on a date probably a bit much. They did look cute.
8.Leonid the Magnificent - Our favorite enormous gay Russian. "I'm not only freaky...I'm nice." I love honesty. Priscilla Queen of the Desert revisited. The third acrobatic performance. The spinning cube was interesting but too long...It wasn't that interesting. The Hoff was right with "Victoria's Secret from Hell". I also agree with the Christmas tree without lights. He certainly does get emotional...Like an eight year old girl!:whip
9..Dave the Horn Guy - I was surprised that he made it this far. I had him last until Sugar and Spice performed...at least he did carry a tune.:monkeybum
10.Sugar and Spice- Singing sucks. Can't carry a tune. If you want a talented kid, this show has plenty...but you need to look elsewhere. Brandy was the only judge with the gonads to say the truth. Brandy told the truth and did it nicely at the same time.:)
Is Piers on crack? (Simon Cowell he isn't...He's Simon-lite, the Margarine of British Talent Show judges. He's quasi-Simon. He's milquetoast.) WUSS!!:cat
Hasselhof just gave a sympathy check but Brandy did the right think the truth will set you free.WUSS!:cat
