01. LionDanceMe, dance/martial arts team
I lost interest. Repetitious.
02. Turf, dancer/contortionist
Iíve had enough of him. Couldnít watch it beyond 5 minutes.
03. The All Ways, rock band
Agree about the singer. The band was actually decent, but he was a low spot. Was he trying to move nonexistent hair out of his face the whole time?
04. Hawley Magic, magician
I liked it a lot but Iím partial to magicians.
05. Lisa Clark Dancers -- X by Howie
Didnít work for me but then Iím impartial to dancers.
06. Aurora Light Painters -- X by Howard
What a mess. I expected so much more. I just didnít get it. Even after the story was explained it hovered in ambiguity to me.
07. Danielle Stallings, singer
Not bad. Needs some time, not ready yet.
08. Big Barry, wannabe -- X by Howard, X by Sharon
Really?!?!?!?!? Have to agree with Howard, what a waste of space in the quarterfinals.
09. Donovan & Rebecca, acrobats
Loved it. Iíd watch them for an hour. Their three performances so far show a great range for what could just be a one trick pony.
10. Tom Cotter, comedian
Some funny stuff. Mrs. Frank is impartial to stand-ups; she enjoyed it, so thatís a good enough endorsement for me. Plus the competition was weak.
11. Ben Blaque, crossbow marksman
Nice trick. The slowly deflating balloon was indeed a capper.
12. Tim Hockenberry, singer
Agree again. Not my type but will probably get through.
So my final 4 in this round, two favorites, two by process of default.
Donovan & Rebecca
Tim Hockenberry will probably replace one of them.
I never apologize. Iím sorry, but thatís just the way I am.
