The Big Finish

Final Five with a Flourish

Season 3 Episode 16 - After being rudely pre-empted by a presidential speech, the Final Five get a fast-paced finale where the judges announce the winners in the first 10 minutes and everyone else plays catch-up.

Shock and Awe and a Few Yawns

Season 3 Episode 15 B - It’s the Final Five -- not in that good Battlestar Galactica sort of way, but in a "five pounds of singers in a ten-pound sack of yawns" sort of way.

Hero Worship

Season 3 Episode 15 - Ten acts, nine singers, three bananas judges, one very overworked smoke machine, and zero mentions of Jesus. It all adds up to fun!

Twenty is the Loneliest Number

Season 3 Episode 14 - We've had four hours of Top 20 week here in AGT land and it's not over yet! The audience is losing it, the sound guy fell asleep, The Hoff can't stay awake, Jerry can't stay on cue, and Piers is getting tarred and feather. It's attrition, but fun attrition.

And Then There Were 20…

Season 3 Episode 13 - It’s Top 20 Week, and that means three episodes this week. Three more times to hope that Sharon attacks Piers with a shiv and The Hoff finally succumbs to napping on the console. Oh, and to watch some people perform in the hopes of winning a million dollars.

Cut the Cheese

Season 3 Episode 12 - It’s a grab bag of talent tonight when the last ten competitors vie for a spot in the Top 20. While a pair of violin-wielding brothers steal the show, little Kaitlyn steals our hearts and our gag reflexes.

And the Band Played On and On

Season 3 Episode 9 - After an Olympic-sized hiatus, we come to the first live show of the very long, drawn-out elimination process, proving that not only do Americans have talent, but so do producers when it comes to squeezing the most out of highly-rated show.

Eat Your Heart Out, Siegfried & Roy

Season 3 Episode 8 - Vegas Week gets off to a rip-roaring start when the judges eliminate a third of the competitors based solely on their shoe size (and audition tapes). They can’t complain, though -- they got a free, all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas and all we got was two hours of The Hoff and no end in sight for this competition.

Putting the AGT! in Audition

Season 3 Episode 6 - Auditions continue in New York and Los Angeles. Amid the dancing, singing, sobbing, and snake licking looms the knowledge that this is the most popular show in America. Or the second most. But I bet the first most doesn't have snake lickers!

Season 3 Episode 5 - Atlanta coughs up a few amazing acts, a few clunkers and The Hoff dancing on a man’s bare chest, but Dallas is where the sob story lies this week. Yes, I’m talking about the man who spent his childhood practicing barnyard noises in the closet.

Don't You Take My Achy Breaky Busty Hearts

Season 3 Episode 3 - This week we are thrilled by sword swallowing, touched by childish warbling, clogged to death by Noxzema girls, disgusted by a giant, wowed by the pitter patter of little feet, and edited out of our money shot. Happy almost birthday America!

Bang a Gong

Season 3 Episode 2 - Apparently gay line dancers, dudes who break burning bricks, Elvis impersonators, and chicks with power tools are what this show is all about. And they wonder why it doesn't get more respect.

Like Monkeys in a Barrel

My Fellow Americans - Season three starts off with a tongue-teasing, chicken-hatching, tap-dancing, panty-flashing bang. And apparently we're not allowed to make fun of baton twirlers. It's going to be a long season.
