Emmy preview, Big Brother HoH Josh talks strategy; AGT singers offer tough choice


Emmy previewIt’s Wednesday and the buzz about the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards is just starting to heat up. While I’d love to suggest this season’s winners are clear cut, the predictions for the award show vary widely. In fact, I believe so many of the critics have fallen in love with different shows that we are going to have a few shockers. Thankfully Stephen Colbert will be at the helm of this year’s show. The only prediction I’m willing to make is the talk show host, funny man and overall talented dude with a huge TV show in New York City is going to have all of us enjoying the program.

Big Brother HoH talks strategy; voting out friends

Josh Martinez is currently the Head of Household on Big Brother and he has a big decision. His newly released video diary might have fans taken back by his candid remarks about his fellow competitors. It can’t be easy to be stuck in a house with strangers for days on end. Apparently, like Josh suggests, there is an adjustment when you start off around strangers, and these strangers start to become friends. Those bonds might be lifetime friendships beyond one show.

It appears that Josh is contemplating his move in the game as he’s guaranteed a spot in the final four. However, his bond with the likes of Paul is tugging at his desire to win the prize. He gives a good perspective on the relationship between being a watching the show at home and being a player on TV. While he as a player would easily make a move against Paul, in the game he finds it very different because of the relationships that he’s built.

There is one other question that comes along with all of this: Does Josh even have an opportunity to vote out Paul? Tonight’s episode may offer insight.

America’s Got Talent: Acts can really sing

America’s Got Talent viewers have a tough choice this week. The competitors on stage are hoping to win and they’ve left their best on the stage. This season it’s a little crowded with the best of the best singers. If you like music, the choice is tough, especially because the backstories of every contestant are compelling too.

There are so many TV singing competitions and still some of the best voices are seen on AGT. I was thinking about the singers last night watching the program. This isn’t the first season this has happened, instead it’s a recurring theme. I’ve come to the conclusion that AGT really allows acts to build off their core values instead of pushing too much Hollywood magic at the beginning. This helps fend off the nerves, builds confidence and when it comes to the live shows, the performances are really unique. The viewers see these acts as they grow and come to love each performance. Which leaves a tough choice for viewers on Wednesday as votes will be counted and someone will be going home. (Photo: Emmys.)
