America’s Got Talent Judges start the (mis)judgement in Vegas

… and here we go for the ridiculous hits and misses of America’s Got Talent as the judges deliberated on the fate of 160 acts who made it to Las Vegas. The semi-final round in Hollywood has only 40 spots to fill. What do the judges do? Of course “balance” the acts by intentionally putting through undeserving acts over better performers to make for an ‘interesting’ show. That’s what they think!

As in American Idol and SYTYCD, eliminations in the audition process tend to be done in fast forward. They give names to certain people while most remain just a face on TV and we will never know them. Those who they did name in the initial audition, they dismiss and cut in Vegas without so much as an explanation why. They’re just gone.

Sorry we don’t have a complete listing of all those who made it in tonight’s episode where they picked 20 acts because everything has been a blur…

Here’s who made it:

> 14 yo singer Thia Megia.
> Peter Peterkin, an Obama impersonator. Go figure!
> Acrodunk
> Platt Brothers
> Barbie Rockers
> Haido Torres, we wonder what in his mediocre dancing moves the judges liked?! We’ve seen better in So You Think You Can Dance.

“Billy Elliot” 13 year old Arcadian Broad is in.

Chicken catcher Kevin Skinner and Lawrence Beaman

Kari Callen who was dubbed by viewers as the Susan Boyle of this year’s AGT is eliminated! So is the kid who’s got soul, guitarist Tallan Noble Latz.

This is Callen’s audition video where all three judges gave her a standing ovation and NBC site says: “Kari proves that all you really need is a stage and a dream”

This is going to be a crazy Top 40… Elimination continues.
