RECAP: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Does New YorkMay 23rd, 2012 | Posted by in Featured TV | Reality TV | Television
It’s week 2 of AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’s 7th season, and they are at Howard Stern’s home base – New York City.
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen the show, this will be the Reader’s Digest version. It’s not a FULL recap, but we’re going to ruin just enough of it for you that you can delete it from your TiVo.
As opposed to last week’s special two-hour episodes for the premiere, this week’s shows were only one hour each. That’s awesome because the editors cut through most of the riffraff for us.
New York – Monday
There weren’t many train wrecks on the Monday show, but there was one act that caused Howard to rethink becoming a judge on the show. We’re pleased to present “Mir Money.”
Throughout the show, though, several acts impressed the judges. Here are three of the best performances.
Wordspit the Illest… a band complete with a violinist… and a math teacher?
The Olate Dogs will have you doing backflips!
This guy is “King of the Nut Shots.” Men should exercise caution while watching this video.
Finally, there was a man named Burton Crane. He says he’s the grandfather of rap music. He comes out and rocks his Casio keyboard, and for some reason the judges let him through despite being terrible.
Whatcha gonna do?
New York – Tuesday
Perhaps one of the funniest moments on Tuesday’s show happened right at the top. Howard’s parents were sitting in the audience, and unfortunately for the first performer, he needed a talking to from Ben Stern. Too bad for Ronald Charles…
Let’s look at the three best performances from Tuesdays show before taking a ride over to Disaster-ville.
Here’s a husband and wife acrobalance duo. I hurt just watching this video (but not as bad as watching a guy get kicked in the junk).
John Pizzi is a ventriloquist comedian who makes very interesting use of an iPad for his performance.
Among the good is Tom Cotter. He’s a stand-up comic, and he’s been performing for 23 years.
And now all aboard… to DISASTER-VILLE!
If Howie had his way, this next duo would have rolled right off the stage. Polly and James are roller-skating dancers.
Finally, The Savage Men enter the stage with what can best be called a male revue. They dance to “I’m Sexy and I Know It,” but we can safely say the men have too high an opinion of themselves. Howard shows them how it’s supposed to be done.
So, how about it? Who impressed you this week? Sound off in the comments section below!
The show moves to sunny Tampa, Fla.
