Do you enjoy all things weird and wacky? Then Tuesday night’s “America’s Got Talent” episode was right up your alley. There were some great acts in just an hour’s time this week, and what we really enjoyed here was the variety of the Chicago acts. There were strong men, singers, dancers, and a guy whose talent really seems to be acting like a mad scientist who makes domino rallies in his room.
Out of this group, there are a couple of people who we could see contend, even if we cannot guarantee that any of them will be one of the last acts standing given everything we have seen thus far.
Omega Force – For whatever reason, this name makes us think of “Delta Force,” but they are pretty incredible at feats of strength. This feels in many ways like an old-school carnival act, so it is therefore pretty hard to do anything other than want to see more. We don’t quite think that their presentation was completely where it needs to be, but there is time to work on that.
Kenichi – We’ve seen animators like Kenichi on “So You Think You Can Dance,” but given that he is too old to audition there, this really is the perfect show for him. Plus, the guy’s brilliant. There were moves in here that we have literally never seen before, and he seems to be such a nice, likable guy.
Deanna DellaCioppa – Why does everyone always sing “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going”? She has a killer voice, but she would stand out much more had she done something a little bit more original to the reality TV world than the go-to “I’m a good singer” song. She’s also a crier, but she could make it pretty far with the right songs in the future.
Sprice – This entire thing was incredibly nerdy, mostly because it was something that we would see out of a “Home Alone” movie in order to stop the bad guy from coming in. It was a simple concept using dominoes, but also completely innovative. This guy could do some really cool stuff moving forward, but the challenge will be making it all work properly.
Hong Niu – It’s always cool to see a woman do something so crazy as balancing glassware while riding a unicycle. Have we seen this same act at an NBA halftime show? Yes, but it was incredible then, and it’s incredible now.
American Military Spouses’ Choir – The final act of the night and we knew that these ladies were going to be great. Plus, they have that emotional story of actually helping military men struggling with PTSD to heal through the power of music. A great story, great performance, and something that voters will flock to if they make it far enough.
