The final set of 48 original contestants performed on America's Got Talent last night. How did your favorite fare?
David "The Bullet" Smith - I don't understand why David even has to wear a helmet; if things go awry, I doubt it would help things. His act was pre-taped, since it would have been much darker if it was actually 8 p.m. The setup took too long with the cheerleaders, but I credit him for trying to fill 90 seconds. He shot correctly, albeit a little further than the middle of the net.
All That! - No one is going to remind us that All That (without the exclamation point) has auditioned before and has lost. One of the members used the word "fight scene" and I was cautious. The group looked like the United Colors of Benetton (or an A capella group). Sure they were clean and their formations were great, up until the fight scene. If the group wanted to show masculinity, the fight scene looked gay.
Ulysses - Ulysses lost all his hair, so he got a wig. He was smart enough to get backup dancers, similar to Big Barry. His version of "Bandstand Boogie" was decent; the dancers were decent. Occasionally Ulysses had breathing issues, but I thought he didn't deserve to be X-ed out. He wasn't like Big Barry who was off-key.
Joe Castillo - Joe had a great story about how his father influenced him. Joe started with the Earth and I was happy to see the use of colors to emphasize each of his animals he made. Anyone who draws pandas also gets extra credit. I love that he uses both hands to draw.
