OK, watched this evening's quarters and will say one thing:
WHY did the producers put all the good acts in this quarters?
I mean seriously - 10 of the 12 acts were entertaining and upped their game. Only two - the singers (Ulysses and the singing duo) I felt fell flat.
Yes, I'm saying this with HORSE - who I loathe with a passion, in the 10. Even he was entertaining, though I do NOT want to see him advance (more for his health).
This round will be hard to judge the four to the next round - but I can see the other six not advancing that really should have a second chance in the wildcard (if they do one and don't decide to drop it due to the Games).
My favorite four - Earth Harp, the sand art, the group of dancers and the dog show. I also adored the mariachi singer the single dancer and the cloggers. I can see the young acrobat dancer get into Cirque - as a dancer and a contortionist. "Varekai" is one I can see her in.
And you could clearly tell by the judges' comments they're saying "PLEASE America - show some sense: a non-singing act this year would be the best winner."
This quarters IMHO makes a good argument to not bring anyone from Las Vegas who didn't make it to the wildcard. I like the goth singer, but he's the only one I can remember who was worth advancing to the live shows and he could use a year to work on his skills and nerves.
