She has some honorable company. Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert have been laughing for a while now.
That's probably very wise of you. I can't imagine how humiliating that must feel for the talented people on the show. You've basically just had all your years of hard work thrown back in your face because of a sob story. What an insult.Yeah, Marty sounded like fingernails on a chalkboard. I only saw the "last night" information on AGT because I wanted to watch another show, and I'm glad I did.
Folks say why don't I enter the show because I'm an "amazing juggler" (their words, not mine)... it's BECAUSE I would lose out to folks like this. I mean Charles Peachock, who IMHO is a phenomenal juggler and he lost out to a bad impressionist. I still am dumbstruck that Howie would DARE call someone who bounce-juggled five balls in sync to "Jailhouse Rock" (not an easy song to juggle to begin with, let alone PLAY while juggling) was the same as a guy BLOWING one ping-pong ball onto a xylophone.
The judges lay it on thick with folks who are not nearly as talented and those who are get shafted. Has happened for far too long in this show, and it's why we only have had one long term success winner - Terry Fator (ironically the ONLY non-singing win until the Olate Dogs last season), and one runner-up long term national success (Jackie Evancho).
I almost didn't come back this season. Don't get me wrong here; I love dogs. I have owned one for most of my life. I'm sorry, though, that dog act did not deserve to win. Not over Earth Harp Guy or Sand Painting Guy. Although those dogs did have some talent, I still consider last season an example of really talented people getting screwed. I'm pretty sure I'm going to ditch this show when this season ends because I can't stand this anymore.
Fator was lucky that he auditioned for the very first season, when America still thought this was a giant talent show. Sometimes I wonder if he would win today.
