Now that this show is picking the semi-finalists, it is even better.  I thoroughly enjoyed this week's show....very entertaining!!

For those of you that haven't watched it, these are impressionists who not only sound like famous people, but look just like them!! The woman who impersonates Barbra Streisand sang just like her (a hard thing to do!!!).  The Elvis, Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, Frank Sinatra, etc, all were great.  They even had a Jackie Gleason and Ed Norton team but the competition is so tough, they were eliminated.

If any of you are looking for an entertaining show, check this one out!

Oh, yes, how could I forget the Lucy impersonator!!  She really looks/sounds just like her!!  I wonder if Elvis will win....if people didn't know better, they would think Elvis has come back into the building!!  Cheesy

Oh gosh, I wonder!  At least about Elvis and Lucy.....I know the Bush impersonator was getting some extra "help" (temporary) in the makeup room.  Smiley

Maybe the Elvis sightings were of this impersonator!

Hope some others in the forum check this show out....it's really entertaining.

I also love America's Got Talent....now that we have the semi-finalists to vote on, it should be more interesting.  (I sure hope the belly dancing guy gets voted off!)  This coming week, we can vote toll-free.   I like that guy from Pakistan that does the "Bollywood" type dancing....for some reason, he just makes me smile!  Alot of really good acts this year....the magician (the older man) was great!

When American Inventor isn't on opposite America's Got Talent, I do watch the inventor show.  It is interesting.  Did you know George Foreman (one of the judges for those of you who don't watch it) is a pastor?  I saw him on a talk show and the host asked him about it.  His church has about 100-150 people and he also speaks and gets bigger crowds when travelling.  But he flies back to his church to preach each Sunday.

No idea either.  David Hasselhof walked off the stage when the other two judges put him through the first time.  He was still against it this time.....maybe that British judge thinks Boy Shakira will liven the competition??!!  I plan to vote for my favorites....hopefully, if enough people do that, the good ones can remain and Boy Shakira will go.

I was sorry they let that African-American, married man go....I thought his voice was really, really beautiful.

It was "repeats" this Saturday so I didn't watch it.  I watch it on Tuesdays (I think it is).  Am anticipating the new show.

I don't know.  I really liked the African American man's singing tonight....think he has a beautiful voice.  And the blonde girl was very good, too.  The Bollywood dancer still makes me smile, but of course, I don't think he can win.  I was really disappointed in the magician tonight as last time he was good.  I voted for the two singers I mentioned plus the Bollywood dancer.

If you want to re-watch the performances, go to NBC.com.....I voted there, too, and watched some again.

I agree Manuel has a good voice.  I guess I'm not too much for beat boxing for a girl.  I'm glad Butterscotch is starting to get a little confidence.

Yes, after last's night performance by the older magician, I guess they should have put the younger one through instead.  Maybe the older one had a "senior moment" because his act last night was just mediocre.  Also, he was stressing (last night) about his act being "gory".  Yuck!

Do you remember "Quick Change" from last year's competition?  How on earth did the lady keep changing dresses/outfits in just 1 or 2 seconds?!!  Especially, when her partner threw glitter over her and she was suddenly dressed in a  patriotic long gown.

I'll be watching The Next Best Thing tonight to see who wins.  I voted for the younger Elvis, but they were all so good....Lucy, Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra....so hard to choose.

Last night on America's Got Talent, two of my favorites got through (the African American man with the lovely voice and the blonde girl singer).  No, the Bollywood dancer didn't make the cut this time!  But at least, he made me smile for some weeks.  Smiley  Among the new group of semi-finalists, I voted for the Russian pet act (I want to see the dogs and cats perform again) and the amazing ventriloquist (doing impressions, too!).
