Cindy Chang and a Magician with a Cat Wow the Judges on 'America's Got Talent'

America's Got Talent : the show that threatens to "unleash the talent," then makes you wish for stricter talent leash laws. After the typical Howie Mandel buffoonery, the first act of the episode is duo Eric and Christlo . The audience booed their singing and dancing to TLC's "Waterfalls," but come on. Great song choice, and I appreciate their enthusiasm and hair. Howie kept from pressing his X because he likes to egg people on needlessly. What a way to start things off. Chris, the Boy with the Wire Hair did "hair hanging," and I just don't understand why the audience booed him. He wasn't THAT bad! Jenny Rocha and the Painted Ladies danced with big fake butts, making America proud. Magic of Mystique did some entry level magic, but at least his face was painted to make him look like ... a dog? We'll never know. http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/cindy-chang-and-a-magician-wit-40836.aspx

Cindy Chang Reveals a Gorgeous Operatic Voice on 'America's Got Talent' (VIDEO)

All her life, 42-year old Cindy Chang has harbored a secret dream of being a singer. But, according to her audition on 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC), "My parents said no." Well, nobody could possibly say no to her after she opened her mouth and let loose with one of the smoothest and most beautiful opera voices the show has ever seen. More polished than Jackie Evancho and we think more in control even than Susan Boyle's initial audition across the pond, Chang meekly and sweetly just put every other competitor on notice. After she finished singing, she was instantly overwhelmed by the outcry of support and accolades sweeping over the stage, but she had earned every bit of it. Piers Morgan even gave her a rare standing ovation, with a single word critique, "Wow." http://www.aoltv.com/2011/06/30/cindy-chang-operatic-voice-americas-got-talent-video/

VIDEO: Multi-Faced Performer Wins Over America's Got Talent Judges

The most amazing thing about this clip from America's Got Talent isn't the performance, which found one Narcissister always appearing to be facing forward despite turning around and upside down.

Naked Cowgirl Loves Nick Cannon, Judges Don't Love Her on 'America's Got Talent' (VIDEO)

You have to be careful typing 'Naked Cowgirl' into Google. You might find some things that could get you in trouble with your spouse or your boss (or both!). If you type it in with 'America's Got Talent' (Tue., 8PM ET on NBC), you'll probably only be mad at yourself. Sandy Kane has largely swiped the gimmick of New York City's Naked Cowboy. Only while he's fit and in shape, Kane is a 57-year old woman. Actually, we'll admit she's in great shape for her age, but it did nothing to make her act more palatable. She performed an original song about Nick Cannon, calling him her boyfriend and talking about how much she loved him. However, after she was 'X'ed off the stage, it turned out to be a lie. Her love was but a Hollywood romance, and now heartbroken she's off to perform on the streets again, and Cannon will have to find solace in the arms of his wife, Mariah Carey. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/06/29/naked-cowgirl-loves-nick-cannon-americas-got-talent-video/

VIDEO: Silver Man Pole-Dances, Gender-Bends on America's Got Talent

Aside from the impressive, horrifying and ultimately failed sword-swallower, Steven Retchless defined what America's Got Talent is all about on Wednesday's episode: being a one-person freak show. I do mean that in the nicest way, as part of what makes him so freaky is his adeptness at swinging, wiggling and falling from the poles he dances on. Sharon Osbourne called him "all things to everyone" (although there's no mistaking him for my dentist), while Piers Morgan's feedback was: "I didn't get it"... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Male-Pole-Dancer-Talent-1034508.aspx?rss=breakingnews
