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

America's Got Talent Recap: Semifinal Shenanigans

We're down to six on America's Got Talent, as the NBC hit reformatted its concluding rounds this year.

Which act stood out? Which do we think could be remaining on the finale? Read on for a rundown of the latest moves, shakes, notes, impressions and grades...

Why do we even have the Wild Card round? No Wild Card has ever made the finals.

Think about it: the acts didn't succeed beating more successful acts the first time and it's an uphill battle to win over America a second time. The only contestants that have a real shot are the Vegas acts that got cut before the country could vote.

Following a questionable YouTube round, the Wild Cards were faced an extra challenge in order to prove they were worth a second chance.

It seemed like the judges were lenient as they gave their reviews to the contestants, less critical of this group than the previous one. Let's give each act a grade, shall we?

It was Bring Your Olympian to Work Day on the America's Got Talent results show this week, as Gabby Douglas tried to cover up the levels of YouTube poop with her big smile and effervescent attitude.

Other than that highlight, though, there was no reason for the four acts chosen to continue on to the next round. Three of them seem destined to be eliminated as quickly as we've known them...

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.Grade: B+

America's Got Talent started off strong this week… then immediately disappointed. Until the second hour, there was only one standout performance, although at least we ended on a high note.

Come along now and see if you agree with the grades we handed out:

The America's Got Talent results this week remained straightforward... even though Howard didn't make any predictions. Howie, meanwhile, spent his time off messing with the contestants, mostly Big Barry and one of the members of LionDanceMe. Let's hope they could see through Howie's awful hairpiece.

I still can't believe how dumbstruck Sharon was to see the fourth and fifth place contestants. It's as if she didn't understand that she could only make a judgment in 20 seconds. She's been on the show longer than Howie and Howard but still wastes the most time.

After a week and a day of waiting, the second part of the America's Got Talent quarterfinals arrived with a bit of a whimper. There were only five strong acts overall, while a majority were clearly not prepared for the big stage.

But let's give them all a grade anyway, shall we?

America's Got Talent aired a two-and-a-hour episode last night, though a solid chunk of that was wasted by an extended introduction by Nick Cannon.

To New York. Even though the show was airing from New Jersey. Darn the New York Football Giants for messing everything up!

The judges have chosen from the cream of the crop. Now, with only 20 spots left for the stand-bys to battle for the live shows, it's make or break time on AGT.

While the decisions were generally obvious, a handful of head-turners succeeded.

Last night's America's Got Talent auditions were a hodgepodge of good contestants and epic failures the producers conveniently decided to place near the end so we'd remember them during Vegas week.

We started with a pig and ended with a woman full of Olympic spirit. In between? Which acts have a chance to advance far this summer? Read on. Find out. Chime in.

America's Got Talent visited Tampa, Florida last night for more of the same: an awkward mix of the really talented and really hopeless. While we were treated some surprises - such as two older men with strong pop and lock routines or the guy who reminded me of Luther Vandross - there was a lot of weird and wacky.

Case in point: What person in his right mind says he's amazing at "air sex?"

After watching a man blast himself out of a cannon and then witnessing an overweight pole dancer on America's Got Talent, one thing became painfully evident last night:

A high level of strange was featured throughout day two in Austin. Read through our previous AGT recap for all the acts from opening night here and then get caught up with the latest below...

The America's Got Talent auditions continued to limp along Tuesday, with producers emphasizing that contestants had to go big or go home in St. Louis. It's unclear such an emphasis was placed in this city, but we seemed to have grabbed a very interesting cross-section of auditions from all over the United States.

I had my doubts when the first few auditions included the awful drummer/mom who played "I Will Survive" and lacked a band; a woman who crushes cans with her hands (instead of her boobs; a dancing chicken; and an awkward unicyclist/lassoer - but the auditions picked up. Too bad we didn't actually see many of them. On to a full recap!

The America's Got Talent auditions continued to roll on in Tampa Bay, Florida tonight - and Nick Cannon continued to hog the spotlight. The producers really need to tone down the amount of Nick interacting with the contestants. Seriously. This isn't Nick Cannon's Got Friends.

Overall, there weren’t a lot of great performances. The weird acts that we watched included a haircutter that tried to be Edward Scissorhands; a stunning but stereotypical hula hooper; an above-average magician; and a "Boss" dance group that may be a little too out there for mainstream America.
