The fight for a million continues as
America's Got Talent continues its stay in New York City.
NEW YORK CITY
First up, Mary Ellen Elaine Rineer
(74-years-young singer/keyboardist who looks strangely like Sharon) had
dreams of doing this. Will it turn into a nightmare with Patsy Cline's
"Crazy"? Umm... yeah. Pretty nightmarish. The judges say... 2-1, yes?!
Rudi Macaggi will balance things on his
head... on champagne bottles. On a basketball... The acrobat makes it.
We like him! How about the Spangles Dance Company (80s dance troupe)? We
like them! How about Eric Koloski (yo-yo champion)? We like him! Michael
Grasso (magician) with his box of doom... WE LIKE HIM!!
Dance Montage. Anna & Patryk ... IN. That
was it for the montage. Thanks, NBC.
Meanwhile, Just the Two of Us (lutist,
flautist) go the route with "Embraceable You"... And no one embraces it.
Maybe if she played the flute more. "Sitar, guitar." Sharon wins.
Joseph "Chale" Ray (39, Washington DC) is
here to become a singer and voiceover talent. Well, he has a voiceover
voice. He has a lounge lizard singing voice, though... At least he has
that whole voiceover thing to work on. He should make a few calls.
Lovell Buchanan ("Little Willie") and the Main Squeeze Orchestra
(accordionists) get to join her.
Nina Mojares (10-year-old singer/dancer)
fronts her act, Legit, a dance crew. She sings "Mercy" by Duffy.
Pretty good for a 10-year-old... but not great. Sharon says she has a
great stage presence, calling her a little "precise". It's good, but she
needs to take it up a notch. Howie says yes. Piers says no, not quite
ready yet. Sharon... says NO.
The weather has taken a turn for the
worse. Will Alice Tan Ridley keep the talent on the up and up? She's
actually the mother of "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe, but she'd like
to be a star in her own right. She's been singing on the subways. Will
she sing on the stage? Yes, she sings "At Last". Needless to say, she
blows it out of the water. Put her through please... and thank you.
Edgewater's Chipps Cooney (illusionist)
started doing magic when he was 12. Everything's gotta be right on time
today. Piers has had enough before the first illusion. Okay, here's the
thing about Chipps... he's bad, but he's so obviously bad that he's
good. Piers is going to say no. The others are going to say yes.
So we took a bite out of the Big Apple,
but where will we end up excreting it? Find out next time.
