I think so. I'm trying to remember, I think 12 acts perform, then the following night is the results show, and only a certain number make it through to the semi finals. Then the following week the next 12 perform, and so on. 48 seems like a lot but NBC has to cover the whole summer. AGT is really all they have. And really, it runs as long as Idol, who has far less acts on the stage.Originally Posted by Jexter;3968372;
This is what I don't understand. In the audition rounds, Piers main objection to certain acts is they aren't Vegas worthy. I don't think one act got put through last night that I see as Vegas worthy. I might pay to see Michael Grimms or Gabourey's mom (what's her name?). The rest? I wouldn't pay to see them in my hometown. Hand whistler lady getting a Vegas act? I was thinking what Howie said when they were going through the acts, and making remarks about an act not being the best but being unique, funny, something that was different-like he was trying to justify what America would want to see. I'm going to assume they probably have a quota of each kind of act they're allowed, but really, some stinkers got through over real talent. I think there should be an age limit, because no kid act is going to win. They don't have a chance and I think hearing Vegas and seeing kids probably doesn't bode well for them. It's exposure, but has anyone but Terry Fatore ever been heard of again after the show was over? I don't even remember who won the first or third seasons, and many of the acts I recall when someone brought them up, but it didn't give them a big break.Each act got 90 seconds to perform but one crazy old lady sang for 10 minutes and not one note was in tune and yet they sent her through to Hollywood anyway, against Piers' objections I'm sure because he was complaining the whole time she was singing.
