I'm a competitive reality TV junkie and totally think I can do better than any contestant. Of course that's a bit dillusional. 

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...

TNC Elite - The choice of a slowed down version of "I Got a Feeling" was weird. I hated the costumes and the fact that there were unnecessary backup dancers. Like normal clogging teams, they were sharp in synchronization, formations, or timing. The solo section without music was the best part, but it defeated the reason for them using contemporary music. My Grade: C

We're down to the final four on So You Think You Can Dance. Let's take a look back on the results show that just aired...

Group Dance - Contemporary (Justin Giles) - The huge flower was an interesting prop and because there are six dancers left, it was nice seeing the six as couples for so long circling around the flower. This also showed that the dancers worked well in a lot of different combinations. The ending with the petals falling was beautiful.

So You Think You Can Dance will take us the finals next week, meaning all the dancers were going as hard as they could to make it through last night.

Along with Nigel and Mary, the guest judges were Christina Applegate and Lil' C, with the former giving some strong comments, proving she is a fan of the show.

America's Got Talent offered a few eliminated surprises this week. But will they last? I have a feeling at least two will get Wild Carded.

Eliminations Part 1 - Frank Miles, Avery & the Calico Hearts, Taylor Davis, Fatally Unique - Avery & the Calico Hearts held the strongest performance of the first six performers, but they wavered against the second half of the show. Frank missed the doughnut and Taylor missed several keys, so they were obviously going to be eliminated in this group.

The final set of the original 48 America's Got Talent performers gave us a mix of really good and really NOT good performances last night. After a very slow first hour, the show ended with one of the most awe inspiring routines in memory from Team iLuminate.

We grade it, and others, below.

Lady GaGa took to the stage and two more contestants took to the road on So You Think You Can Dance last night. A detailed review follows.

Group Dance - Contemporary (Tyce Diorio) - The group performed a circus themed piece with Jess as the ringmaster and it was interesting to see everyone’s moves used in a freaky kind of way. They managed to cover up Tadd's lack of contemporary skills by placing him on a rope swinging around instead of doing choreography. It was fun to watch because there was so much to look at.

Rob Marshall and Lady GaGa joined the So You Think You Can Judge panel this week, as the dancers put in 12 performances. Makes me tired just thinking about it...

Sasha & Pasha - Quickstep (Jonathan Roberts) - Their dancing was over exaggerated in the beginning. It looked like Pasha was holding Sasha upright and, if he wasn't there, she'd fall right over. The dance was done well, but will probably be forgotten. There was something tribal about Sasha's dancing, but it could have been because of the headpiece. My Grade: B+.

This is the first week this season that America's Got Talent emphasized told us not to tru things at home. Got that, everyone who is about to break out the pole dancing, motocross, and juggling acts in your living room?

Come along as I play the role of judge and grade each performance...

It seems like production value of So You Think You Can Dance went up this week in hopes that Nigel Lythgoe could get another Emmy nod.

A few extra camera pans in the beginning and increased set lighting, along with Cat Deeley's always cheeky hosting and guest judge Neil Patrick Harris' best fanboy comments, made for a fun night on the hit Fox competition.

After a night of mediocre performances Tuesday, the preview for last night clearly set the five performers up even before the eliminations took place.

There was nothing surprising about this week's America's Got Talent results except for the fact that America didn’t mind the more flamboyant efforts.

Man, I'm sleepy.

That wasn't exactly the most exciting installment of America's Got Talent, as most acts in Las Vegas chose poor, boring songs. But a few still made a strong impressions, and all are graded below...
