America’s Got Talent: Acts Past and Present Come Together for Holiday Show

Out of the ten years that I have been watching America’s Got Talent, there wasn’t a holiday special. This year, however, is different. Ladies and Gentleman, it’s the AGT Holiday Spectacular! Various acts from the past eleven seasons return to perform in this Christmas-themed special. There were many familiar faces. From Jackie Evancho to the excellent Terry Fator, it was end to end talent extraordinaire. When Piff the Magic Dragon’s performed alongside the incomparable Penn and Teller, it was like the semi-finals (if I remember correctly) all over again. The overall act was Teller performing most of the trick while Piff just stood off to the side, not doing much of anything. The Olate Dogs’ performance was sub-par for me as well. I know that it’s quite difficult to train dogs and other animals to do tricks, but this performance just makes me want to fall asleep. I loved Terry Fator’s rendition of Elvis Presley’s song, Blue Christmas. If I had the money, I would go check out his show in Las Vegas. The humour that he put into his performance is spot on, and it brought a smile to my face. I also loved The Clairvoyant’s act where they used Charles Dicken’s story, A Christmas Carol (with Howie Mandel as Ebenezer Scrooge) to make their predictions. I still can’t figure out how they do it. They’re that good. READ MORE...

Americas Got Talent Holiday Special Tops Oprahs Michelle Obama Interview In Ratings, The Wall Gets Sampled

Once a ratings powerhouse with her primetime interview specials, Oprah Winfrey returned to broadcast TV with First Lady Michelle Obama Says Goodbye To the White House: An Oprah Winfrey Special on CBS. The hourlong interview drew 9.39 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49, which was OK, but well below the ratings highs for some of Winfreys signature primetime interview specials of the past few decades. In the 8-9 PM time slot, the special managed to edge the   ...Read More... http://deadline.com/2016/12/americas-got-talent-holiday-special-ratings-oprah-michelle-obama-interview-the-wall-preview-1201873888/

[VIDEO] Watch 5 Unforgettable Performances from 'America's Got Talent' Season 11

Another season of America's Got Talent is in the books and another winner has been crowned. The winner might not have been my personal favorite and season 11 saw far too many singers make it way too far in the competition. Despite the season's lows and flaws there were still plenty of amazing and memorable performances. Here are five of the most unforgettable performances from America's Got Talent season 11. ...Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/video-watch-5-unforgettable-pe-61266.aspx

Did Grace VanderWaal Deserve to Win 'America's Got Talent'?

Since her very first appearance on America's Got Talent it appeared that the show was setting Grace VanderWaal up for a real Cinderella story. From the moment that the Golden Buzzer was pressed to send her to live shows and until her final folksy original pop song, Grace was the golden child (almost literally) of America's Got Talent season 11. So it wasn't hard to see her being crowned as the winner. Just because Grace winning was predictable doesn't mean it wasn't earned. Grace wasn't my personal favorite but she still deserved to win America's Got Talent. ...Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/did-grace-vanderwaal-deserve-t-61268.aspx
