America's Got Talent 2013 Auditions: Ventriloquist Megan Piphus Puppets Pay Tribute to Whitney Houston

Who would have thought when we tuned into America's Got Talent 2013 this week that we'd see a ventriloquist singing act paying tribute to Whitney Houston? Seriously, you won't see this stuff anywhere but AGT! Despite finding ventriloquism in general kind of creepy, we do like Megan and her story of using her art to overcome being shy. She sings with her puppets and she actually has a pretty nice voice too. A million dollar act? No. Adorable and sweet? Yes! Heidi thinks Megan has real star... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/N2KQ9Q-26SE/2013-06-12-americas-got-talent-ventriloquist-megan

America's Got Talent 2013 Auditions: Collin Keys Dollar Bill Popcorn Bag Trick Wows!

On America's Got Talent 2013, we absolutely love a good magic act, and this is a great one! Collins’ parents love his love of magic and they are his biggest fans. Collins’ trick is a deceptively simple one. He gets a sealed popcorn bag from backstage, asks Howard Stern to read out the serial number from a dollar bill and notes that no two dollar bills have the same serial code. He writes down the code on a sheet of paper. Then he seemingly burns the dollar bill and blows the smoke into the... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/hVX3SfyEoMU/2013-06-12-americas-got-talent-collin-keys

America's Got Talent 2013 Auditions: Sword Swallower Brad Byers Freaks Us Out!

OMG! Sword swallowers are nothing new, but on America's Got Talent 2013 this week we saw one that totally freaked us out! We saw quite a few clips of this guy out there in theAmerica’s Got Talent2013 previews for this week’s episode. Now THIS is an edge of your seat kind of act. We’ve all heard about sword swallowers, many of us have seen videos of it or even maybe seen it live. But there is just something so mind-blowing about watching a guy put a giant sword down his throat that freaks you... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/-89lu91yLDk/2013-06-12-americas-got-talent-auditions-sword

TV ratings: 'America's Got Talent' steady Tuesday against NBA Finals

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, June 11, 2013Ratings for Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday dropped a little from the previous game, continuing a downward trend for the series. ABC still easily led the night among adults 18-49, but it ceded the total viewer crown to NBC."America's Got Talent" was pretty steady opposite the NBA game, rising a little in viewers over its premiere last week and dipping only a tenth of a point in the 18-49 demo. "The Voice" was down a bit from last week, as was FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance."As things stand now, NBC is on top for the night in viewers with 11.1 million and a 6.8 rating/11 share in households. ABC (10 million, 6.2/10) is second, but its numbers will likely rise with adjustments for the live NBA telecast. CBS took third with 6.5 million viewers and a 4.5/7. FOX (4.25 million, 2.6/4) came in... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/06/tv-ratings-americas-got-talent-steady-tuesday-against-nba-finals.html

'America's Got Talent': Travis Pratt and Jonathan Allen stun judges with operatic voices

"America's Got Talent" truly put their best foot forward Tuesday (June 11), opening the show with one of the night's best performers. Travis Pratt took the stage to sing, but the judges were blown away when they found out his song selection.Pratt stunned the judges and audience both when he unleashed a powerful opera voice, even hitting incredible high notes seemingly with ease. After such a performance, there was no way he could be denied. He gave all of the credit to his girlfriend, who convinced him to try out for the show. When Howie Mandel asked the girlfriend onto the stage, it didn't take long before Travis got down on one knee to propose in front of the crowd. Of course, she accepted as Nick Cannon faked crying backstage.Travis wasn't the only operatic singer of the night, though. Jonathan Allen was another young man with a powerful voice. His story started a bit sadder,... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/06/americas-got-talent-travis-pratt-and-jonathan-allen-stun-judges-with-operatic-voices.html

America's Got Talent 2013 Auditions: Ruby and Jonas, D'Angelo and Amanda

Tiny dancers were all the rage on America's Got Talent 2013 Tuesday night! Just nine and ten years old, tiny dancing couple Ruby and Jonas are really quite astounding to watch. If you can actually not kind of go “awwwwww” at the cuteness, there may be something wrong with you. All the judges are on board, it’s pretty easy to see. Mel B wishes she had their kind of talent and Heidi didn’t want to dance to end. Four yes votes all around and they are headed to Vegas. It’s another tiny dancing... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/SKDKHaCz8Bk/2013-06-11-americas-got-talent-auditions-ruby

America's Got Talent 2013: Travis Pratt Shocking Opera Audition and Live Proposal!

The first America's Got Talent 2013 audition tonight is singer Travis Pratt.Travis’s girlfriend made him audition forAGT, so at least someone believes in him. He is one of those “surprise” opera singers that looks like he is going to sing something else entirely and then BAM it’s opera. It’s kind of a repetitive gimmick onAmerica’s Got Talentevery year. Howard Stern thinks Travis is a total freak, but that’s not a bad thing at all. The judges are loving this guy all around. Mel B. thinks he... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/edf5mDhcCz8/2013-06-11-americas-got-talent-travis-pratt

America's Got Talent 2013 Auditions: Pistol Packin' Paula!

There always has to be a few bad acts on America's Got Talent, and tonight Pistol Packin’ Paula was one of them. Paula comes out shooting and nearly has theAmerica’s Got Talentjudges diving for cover! She doesn’t seem to really have much else interesting with her act, except an attempt to whip host Nick Cannon, and she’s soon smothered in Xs from the judges. No Vegas for you! http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/R5PBZlca70s/2013-06-11-americas-got-talent-auditions-pistol

America's Got Talent 2013 Auditions: Mariachi Nuevo Estillo AVM "Sexy and I Know It"

On America's Got Talent tonight, a Mariachi band stole the show and convinced Howard Stern he can actually like Mariachi! Say the name of this act, Mariachi Nuevo Estillo AVM,three times fast! Like Howard Stern, we express disbelief that this act is going to win us over, but as they promised, by the end we’re almost trying to sing along to their totally fun version of “Sexy and I Know It” and “Apple Bottom Jeans” — too awesome! Despite saying he isn’t a mariachi band fan, Howard says he... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/81lRDMLK-Gk/2013-06-11-americas-got-talent-auditions-mariachi
