A maddening week. How do you pick three?
The only easy no’s I have are:
Andrew De Leon, singer. Love the story but he’s just not ready. I wouldn’t watch him for an hour if it was free.
Edon, singer. Never understood the adoration.
Turf, contortionist/dancer. Five minutes of him is more than enough.
Bria Kelly, singer. Not ready.
Academy of Villains, dance troupe. I’m not a dance fan.
Leaving me with 7 to choose from.
The three I would pay to see for an hour are:
Donovan & Rebecca, acrobats
Joe Castillo, light and sand artist
William Close, musician
However, Donovan & Rebecca won’t make it. The teeny boppers won’t vote for them. I have the same concern for Joe Castillo, but he might squeak through. I think Close is a pretty sure shot, especially after the judges continued to fawn over him.
I think Dittelman (quite impressive trick) and Todd Oliver have a chance. I enjoyed both of them as well. Tom Cotter is a seasoned professional. I’d go see him in a club but probably not Vegas. And a comedian will never win this show.
