by at .

Is there another Jackie Evancho out there? That's what America's Got Talent was hoping for last night, as it gave us a special performance show based on YouTube submissions...

    When people vote you stand the chance of it going horribly wrong because they usually do not vote on talent but rather religious background, underdog, cute etc.

    Jackie Evancho is a gift. She sounds like what I think heaven would sound like. Never in a million years should she have lost to Michael. He is good but not extrodinary. Jackie is extrodinary.

    Maybe Jackie set the bar a little to high last year. If the Youtube contestants wasn't bad enough the guest appearance with Rebecca Black was even worse, did any one notice Piers Morgan afterwards its a good thing they had his buzzer unhooked. Jackie is making a guest appearance in Sept. At least there will be one act worth watching for the year.

    This is the most pathetic show on T.V. The so called talent is laughable. When half of the top 48 acts are getting beeped that supports my opinion. The judges are even more pathetic than the acts. How would they know what talent is when they have never had even a smidgen of it themselves!

    I am a retired public school music teacher(42 yrs.). In my opinion this whole season of AGT is a bust. It will probably be quite a while before another Jackie Evancho appears. I saw her special with David Foster on PBS the other night which was excellent. The American public showed their cultural ignorance when they favored Michael Grimm. He's good but his kind of a singer can be found all over the place. The singers this year are not consistently good throughout their 90 second performances. The variety acts remind me of the acts in the circuses that I have played for. All of the dance acts are redundant to themselves and the other dance groups I wandered why the judges didn't question Matt Wllhelm's ability to fill the time of a whole show as they have with many others. I guess it was because of his being the biggest vote getter on Youtube. I think next season I'll wait to watch until the finals. At least I'll save a little artistic stress.

    My husband & I love AGT but last nite was just terrible. Why have a UTube in it. We don't think it's fair that all of the other acts had to go through the process while UTube acts obviously pick out their best performance and then send it in & then flop on live TV. It's part of the enjoyment of watching how someone performs in the beginning and how they improve through the different shows. Stop doing the UTube show.
