AGT Hopefuls Gamble on Vegas… and Lose It AllJune 26th, 2012 | Posted by in Featured TV | Reality TV | Television
More than 100 acts came to Vegas for the next round of AMERICA’S GOT TALENT. Only 48 will make it to the live shows. The competition will be fierce, and as seen on Vegas Day 1, some people just can’t take the pressure.
The show begins as the Vegas hopefuls assemble in the Palazzo in Las Vegas. The judges come out and tell them the acts have been divided into two groups. There are the judges’ picks and the standby group. If someone doesn’t appear on either list, they are told they will not be performing in Vegas and will go home immediately.
Six acts don’t find their names on the board. They are the Bandbaz Brothers (acrobats), Olate Dogs (Dogs!), William Close (the earth harp), David Smith (human cannonball), Charlie C (singer), and Ivy Rose (band). They are all led out on stage. Ivy Rose, Charlie C and the Bandbaz Brothers are called forward. They are told that their performances just didn’t make the cut, and they are eliminated.
The remaining contestants are told they don’t need to be seen again. They are automatically advancing to New York.
We don’t have video of all the acts, but we do want to focus on a few categories. If you want to see everything, the full episode is here.
The ladies came to Vegas to impress, but they just didn’t seem to have rehearsed at all – something Howard picked up on immediately.
Mary Joyner sang, but her performance was far from the gold-medal vocals she gave in last week’s show.
Luna was so awful, the judges let her off the hook very quickly.
Lastly, Nikki Jensen arrived and proved you can’t always get what you want, and the judges seem to like her.
Simply Sergio is battling issues with his voice, and it caused his performance to suffer.
Luiz Meneghin hit the stage feeling confident and sang his heart out with his signature “1000-yard stare.”
The young man who surprised everyone in his initial audition, Andrew De Leon, returned to the stage and let his nerves get the best of him.
The novelty acts are the most entertaining to me as they each have a gimmick that makes them memorable. There were several, but let’s take a look at three of the best acts.
Horse, the nut-shot king, returned and lit the judges on fire with his act.
Lightwire Theatre came back and decided they would do something different than what they rehearsed.
Not to be outdone, the Aurora Light Painters brought their “A game” to the stage.

The Vegas Auditions continue tonight on NBC. We still have lots of talent to get through during this three-night event!
