    I have been a long-time fan of the British version and the American version and have posted some spectacular performers here:

    This 10-year old girl is this years surprise star. Please welcome Jackie Evancho to future stardom.

    I wasn't sure who would win this year, but after seeing Jackie perform the other night she is definitely the favorite.

    Personally, I'm cheering for Prince Poppycock. Not only is he fabulous, but extremley talented. This little girl does have a set of pipes on her.

    I think the glow in the dark guys could make a helluva (blueman group type) Vegas show if they can keep innovating.

    I also think it would be pretty cool if you had Poppycock create an entire show, with him being the MC and using acts like Rudy (the balance guy) and Haspop, even the wall climbing dancers. Let them do their thing but with Poppycock's vision and artistic flair. I think it could dethrone Cirque.

    As a side note: The one act I wish stayed was the little girl dance group (RNG I think). They could dance and didn't wear whore clothes or dance all slutty. I think they'd have been real positive role models.

    I wished the bellydancers stayed in. Was very disappointed when Howie and Piers voted for the trick cyclist instead of them :(

    Really? I thought they were horrible. They weren't very good belly dancers at all, plus they had the faces of linebackers.

    Brilliant.

    There was a reason Piers and Howie only commented on their boobs...

    Don't hold your breath. The basic American TV public wouldn't know good music if it reached out of the TV and bit them in the ***.

    They'd vote for the kid with the Justin Bieber haircut before us because he's "wholesome".

    Gag.

    Thats why you guys should cut off your drummers legs. You would totally win with a legless drummer.

    Face wise, I'd agree with you, but IMO they were very talented belly dancers. If I could be half as good, I'd be happy

    I liked RNG too. This week is suppose to be a second chance show and they're in it.

    Fighting Gravity has been my favorite up to this point.

    No, this coming episode is called the wildcard round. They are bringing back these acts.

    Its true. They are coming back for a second (third?) chance. Not too spoilerish as they showed the list at the end of last weeks episode.

    My recording cut off before they showed it so I didn't know. I guess Pagan didn't know either.

    No I didn't...very cool. Love Doogie!

    The little rap kid I can do without though.

    The rap kid is ok though. I know you hate rap, I don't love it, but the kid is good at it. Plus he's the only person on the show who writes his own lyrics.

    Down to the final 10.

    I'd guess the Top 5 seeds are:

    1. Jackie Evancho
    2. Prince Poppycock
    3. Defying Gravity
    4. Michael Grimm
    5. Michael Grasso

    My preferences are:
    (1 & 2 could change if Defying Gravity doesn't bring anything new next time)
    1. Defying Gravity
    2. Prince Poppycock
    3. Michael Grimm
    4. Michael Grasso
    5. Jackie Evancho

    Though I'd pay to see any of them.
