Top 48 - Heat 1
July 12

(C-Note: some of the acts that you are about to read involve real danger in front of a live audience. They were designed, practiced, and supervised by professionals, taking the contestants' safety into full account. They are extremely dangerous and should NEVER be attempted anywhere, by anyone, at any time.

The following has been adapted from We Love to Interrupt, episode dated July 18.)

We've pared it down to the final 48, but now they're going to come at you, 12 at a time, until there's a champion. First up... the first 12.

CBS Television City

1) MIAMI ALL-STARS (Miami, FL) - Latin Dancing

Hey it's the exact same style of dancing we already saw! In fact, the head of the troupe told the judges they had more than what they brought. You simply just told the audience that you mailed it in. Bad move, Bad Form and not only that, it was better performed in the auditions.

2) DEZMOND MEEKS (Pineville, LA) - singing "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones.

The judges, unfortunately, were right. It's a lounge act that isn't going to get America's vote. If anything, he lowered the bar, not raised it. Meeks once again was better the first time. And Lounge Acts are a dying breed nowadays, so even if he did move on, his style wouldn't have wowed anybody afterwards.

3) THOSE FUNNY LITTLE PEOPLE (Chicago) - Singing in the rain... "It's Raining Men" by the Weather Girls.

Singing in the rain? Really? Add props, do SOMEthing besides dance around with half naked people.

4) FEARLESS FLORES FAMILY (Myakka City, FL) - cycling in the Globe of Death. Again.

That act looked exactly like their first audition... Wait! it was! It's like they only had one bullet and they used it up on their audition. They tried to reuse it, and it backfired.And that's the major problem with people who go on talent shows. Most of them are just one-note performers. If you're not multidimensional, then you're not going to last. This is why singers win. They have a repertoire of different songs to pick from. Of course that leads us to....

5) SQUONK OPERA (Pittsburgh) - More operatic antics.

How did they get here? Their name? And the fact that in their audition stage, they were after a long batch of losers, so even if you were passable, as they were, they were shoo-ins to get in. Hell, I would have taken another performance from Leonid the Magnificent over this.

6) J CHRIS NEWBERG (Birmingham, MI) - a set that includes a "Bad Idea" song.

I liked him, but again, he didn't raise his game from what we saw from him. He's just not ready yet.

7) SNAP BOOGIE (Boston) - dancing

The ONLY one who raised his game, adding lights, effects, people, etc. Snap Boogie, in this lethargic group, can go a ways in the competition, further if Haspop can go far. He's not nearly as good as Haspop, but he shown this week because no one else did.

8) ECHO OF ANIMAL GARDENS (Lake Geneva, WI) - singing with a creature named Binky.

For an animal act to advance, they need to pull out everything. This group did nothing. There's an old rule when it comes to acts. Never work with family or animals, because they seldom work. They didn't work here.

9) THE FIDDLEHEADS (Dahlonega, GA) - performing "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson? Really? Way to sacrifice what made you good to an audience that skews older. You needed to go AC or Classical, not pop sleaze. It's like Idol singers who try to do something out of their normal range and alienate their core group of voters. Thus leaving you with nothing. They also committed a cardinal sin, which we will discuss later on.

10) DUO AERO (St. Paul, MN) - aerialists


11) ANNA GRACEMAN (Juneau, AK) - performing "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong

Didn't bring anything new to the party. However, she actually executed her performance very well. That being said, that will not win her a million dollars. She has to do better and think bigger on her next performance.

12) SANDOU TRIO RUSSIAN BAR (San Antonio) - acrobatics on a Russian bar... above spikes

What they did was great, don't get me wrong, but we've seen it already. Again, what they did will not win them a million dollars.

Performance of the night goes to... ANNA GRACEMAN. Also strong: J Chris Newberg and Snap Boogie. But who could join them in the next round?
