Tonight starts the final countdown with the top 12 talents for America’s Got Talent.
Nick’s suit is sort of a silvery white. Not bad Nick. Good color on you.
2014 is our 5th year watching this summer show. This is the 3rd year I’ve been blogging about it.
The entire gang is here tonight. My family, two of my four brothers, plus assorted friends and even a Werewolf pal and his girlfriend. Needless to say the peanut gallery will have plenty of comments about the acts.
But first, Teddy, my darling husband, is making cocktails.
Vampire Cowboy Cocktail
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1/4 fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4-cup of cold beef broth
- 1/4 cup blood (leave out if you aren’t a Vampire)
- 3-5 dashes of Tabasco (or mix to taste with other hot sauces)
- A dash of ground pepper
- A dash of cayenne pepper
- A dash of kosher salt
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with liberal amounts of ice. Shake vigorously and pour into a chilled old fashioned glass. Garnish with a lemon slice (keep it round like a wagon wheel). Rim the glass with salt if you like that sort of thing.
I’m having a Lemon Martini.
Now on with the show…
The line up is fantastic. The teens all want to see either Emil and Dariel the two young cello players or the ultra cute singer Miguel Dakota win. I tend to agree but I’d be happy with any of 9 of the 12 in the finals.
Below is a list of contenders with comments from the peanut gallery of Vampires and Werewolves in italics. Warning some of the comments are rude.
Sons of Serendip
The singer has beautiful eyes. I hate harps. I like harps. Beautiful voice. They sound so churchy but so pretty. I love this song. Who sings this originally? Elton John. Oh. If I’m not mistaken. Great voice. These guys aren’t scrubs. They’re real musicians. A horrible name for a band. Wow. They’re wonderful. They are good looking guys. They’re really handsome.
These guys are every bit as good as Circe Sole. This is like senior level big time stuff. Very tight. If they had a dog… If they had Scooby they’d win. Wow. Oh my gosh. Don’t drop her. This is great. They were good. They were tight. There again, it is what it is. They’re an opening act. Definitely talented. Wow. I’d watch these guys. Of all the groups we’ve seen like this they’re the best. Put your shirts on.
I hope they do well. All the other dancers were tired. They’re the best. I Put A Spell On You, interesting. He is such a good dancer. Wow, she can really move. I would have done the james Brown Version. This is interesting. I like it. I love it. I’d pay to see them. They’re fun. They’re really good. That was good. I’ll vote for them. They have talent. Mel needs to shut the F up. Really? She (Mel) is pretty much brain dead. The judges are stupid. I like the dancing. They’re great.
Emil and Dariel
They’re just so cute. Interesting choice for a song. Aerosmith. Get rid of the singers and tone the band down. The background is drowning them out. Very pretty. I like them. I thought they should have rocked the house. I really like them. They should be in the top 5 at least. They are darling. I wonder what our friend who plays the cello thinks. It wasn’t safe. It was a tough song. Playing it safe would have been what they did before. Nick’s suit is terrible.
David and Leeman
I adore these guys. They are so darling. Love their style. Fun lottery act. OMG how did they do that? OMG. Awesome. They get a vote from me! Very nice. I honestly thought they’d screwed up. The stupid judges didn’t even stand up for them. That was really good. If I was single I’d date them.
Fantastic job. Hard song. We’re voting for him all the way. I hope he wins. We all do. He is the star.
I really like him. Very good. I really enjoy his act.
Sweet kid but he can’t sing. Sure but he’ll win. He has no talent, nice kid but no talent. Nick has no talent. Cute kid but… He is just awful. It all sounds the same. It sounds off, so off. He is singing off key. He can sing one not. That’s it. He has good stage presence. He has no range. This is just putrid. You can’t compare him to Stevie Wonder NO NO NO NO. I’d rather hear James Spader sing that song.
Sweet kid. She can belt out a song but…Ewwwwww that hurts. A little bit off. Nooooooo. Nice kid but…wait about 10 years and come back. Ouch. Big lungs. Uh oh. I thought that was her best performance but she just isn’t that good. Good job Mara I hope you don’t read my mom’s blog. I dunno.
Christian Stoineu and Scooby
Put a shirt on. I love the dogs. They are sooooo cute. Would you pay to see this? Not this guy. Its the dog. Everyone votes for the dog. I wish I could do that. Uh oh. Who gives a shit. He is good but not the million dollar act. I agree with Heidi he needed more dog. More Scooby.
If he does a really good trick he could beat out everyone else. He can do it. Good stage presence. They have to give magicians more time. Hey dude get on with it. You’re losing me. I’d put Howie in the booth. I want to see him squeal like a girl. Wow. That was hecka good. Go get work.
She’s ok. But as far as being amazing… I don’t know. NOOOOO bad choice of song. You can’t do Moody Blues. Nobody but Justin Hayward should sing that. This doesn’t highlight her voice at all. Her voice cracked there twice. No, this is not good. Don’t eat the microphone. No no no. That wasn’t that good. Pale imitation. Oh shut the F up Howie and Howard. Oh bullshit. I think Howard slept with her.
We all had a good time. Now only the spirits will tell who makes this round. Or we can all vote and find out tomorrow.
