'America's Got Talent' Chicago Auditions: The One Act to Watch

After the cry-fest that was America's Got Talent last week, the Chicago auditions treated us to a much less emotional yet still extremely talented group of acts. In fact, with the episode being only an hour long (many thanks to The Voice !), we didn't have to sit through a single rejected performance. Eight acts up, eight acts through. No filler, no mess. But which act is the one to watch as the live shows approach? That is both easy and extraordinarily difficult to guess. The one thing I'm happy about is that after three singers, this week's one to watch is anything but.

TV ratings: 'The Voice' finale hangs tough Tuesday opposite NBA Finals

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, June 18, 2013An overtime thriller in Game 6 of the NBA Finals gave ABC its best ratings of the series Tuesday and carried the network to a win for the night. But the finale of "The Voice" also scored for NBC."The Voice" recorded its best finale ever in total viewers and was nearly even with last spring's finale in the 18-49 demographic (although it was down from the fall edition's finale). "America's Got Talent" was also solid for NBC. The night's only other original show, FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance," dropped against the heavier competition.NBC currently leads the total-viewer race with just over 14 million and an 8.6 rating/14 share in households. ABC (13.7 million, 8.2/13) is close behind, pending adjustments for the live NBA broadcast. CBS finished a distant third with 6.4 million viewers and a 4.3/7. FOX (3.85 million, 2.4/4) came in fourth. The CW brought... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/06/tv-ratings-the-voice-finale-hangs-tough-tuesday-opposite-nba-finals.html

America’s Got Talent 2013 Audition: Dance-ish Guy Kenichi Ebina!

On America's Got Talent 2013 tonight, we were a bit hesitant when we saw this guy's intro and thought "oh no, here comes a bad one" after he said he does “dance, marital arts and mime” together. But boy were we wrong! Amazingly, this guy is actually crazy awesome! We’ve never seen anyone dance-ish like this. It’s like he’s on strings, or a built with robot parts. Some of these moves just look physically impossible! We are sorry we pre-judged you from your intro, Mr. Dance-ish Kenichi Ebina... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/KAqZuthniX0/2013-06-18-americas-got-talent-audition-dance

America’s Got Talent 2013 Audition: Sprice’s Rube Goldberg Machine!

Hmmm. we seem to have weird stormtrooper robots on screen now. Nick Cannon says it’s the “world of weird science” time. Steve Price aka Sprice, builds Rube Goldberg machines. (Wiki it here.) He has built a very large machine thing that runs a chain reaction of things happening. He’s been setting up his machine in the lobby for the past three days. TheAmerica’s Got Talentjudges and audience crowd out into the lobby. Nick Cannon pushes the first domino to make the whole thing go. It’s got all... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/pkV8xsSBQCo/2013-06-18-americas-got-talent-audition-sprices

America's Got Talent 2013 Auditions: Team Rock and Cheerleader Darby!

In this video from America's Got Talent tonight, we have two acts for the price of one: the Team Rock karate stunt group and five-year-old cheerleader Darby! America’s Got TalentAudition:Team Rock Karate Stunt Group These auditions are flying by so fast we can’t even type them up! We barely get to see these guys, but they do a couple of cool karate tricks like breaking stuff with their body parts and then it’s on to theAmerica’s Got Talentjudges for a top speed critique. All the judges love... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/wCEjUwy64rI/2013-06-18-americas-got-talent-auditions-team

America's Got Talent 2013 Auditions: Omega Force Strength Team

Up first on America's Got Talent tonight is a team of weightlifters, including a dude that is over 70 years old and lifting a crazy amount of weight. We’re afraid he is going to have a heart attack on stage. Then another of the guys breaks a whole huge column of bricks. The team pulls Nick Cannon out to the center of the stage next for another man to bench press him like he’s riding a crazy mechanical bull. Judges:No Xs from the judges and Howard Stern says the team is inspirational for... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/o9ArVP_jvsQ/2013-06-18-americas-got-talent-auditions-omega

America’s Got Talent Audition: Military Spouses Choir Inspires the Judges!

Right away when we see this next group on America’s Got Talent tonight, we know it’s supposed to be the ‘feel good’ act of the evening. We don’t think a choir is a million dollar Vegas act, but we love their message of supporting veterans and helping out soldiers with traumatic brain injuries. For a choir, they are beautiful singers and they sound fabulous. But if it wasn’t for the backstory, we don’t feel like they would be on the show at all. Even the audience appears to have a little... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/wIyTN-P-fA0/2013-06-18-americas-got-talent-audition-military

America’s Got Talent Audition: Rong Niu Juggles Bowls on a Unicycle!

Rong Niu has a unique, traditional performance act with a twist. Her dream is to make the next round. Her mom juggled balls, which prompts a whole conversation about how ridiculous Mel B sounds with her accent saying that. We’re not sure if flipping bowls onto your head on a unicycle is a million dollar act. It is a very tall unicycle. She balances a bowl on her head and then on her foot while cycling with the other foot. And then starts flipping bowls onto her head with her feet... first... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/-ZZBIEM9ckM/2013-06-18-americas-got-talent-audition-rong

America’s Got Talent 2013 Audition: Deanna DellaCioppa Sings From Dreamgirls!

Fiery redhead dog rescuer Deanna, 39, does not, interestingly enough, have a dog act. Instead, she’s a singer. But she says she always lacked confidence because she wasn’t “aesthetically what you’re supposed to be” because of her weight. She is performing a song fromDreamgirlsand she has a pretty killer voice although we’re going to have to say it sounds just alittlebit strained. A bit oversung, but still decently entertaining. The crowd seems to love her way more than we do though because... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/c0Kz5roNcFg/2013-06-18-americas-got-talent-audition-deanna

'America's Got Talent': American Military Spouses Choir ends night on high note

It may have been a shorter version of "America's Got Talent" Tuesday (June 18), but it packed no less of a punch. In a show filled with dancers, muscle men and even a very impressive Rube Goldgerg device, the true stars of the night were the members of the American Military Spouses Choir.The group regularly performs to support their husbands in the military, plus uses music therapy for soldiers suffering from traumatic brain injury and PTSD. The entire 35-woman ensemble took the stage, prepared to show the judges why they should move forward.Their rendition of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" easily won them a ticket to Vegas, as judge Howard Stern told the choir they knew "how to lift the human spirit." The group got a standing ovation, from both the judges and the audience, as they celebrated their victory.Check out the American Military Spouses Choir's performance below:... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/06/americas-got-talent-american-military-spouses-choir-ends-night-on-high-note.html
