More Talent, less judges
26 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched this show on and off for a few years now and what I enjoy most is seeing the vast variety of talent (and occasionally the so-awful-you-can't-look-away acts). However, it seems that this year in particular, there is so much time devoted to the judges goofing around and getting up on stage to do the act with the performers. They are such attention-hogs! I would rather see more acts! Also, Nick Cannon as the host...same thing! I do not find him funny and I hate how the camera keeps cutting away during each performance to capture his mugging and/or unfunny comments. This program should be a showcase for the amazing variety of talent out there...not a forum for a bunch of B-list Hollywood wanna-be's. Thank goodness for my DVR...I can cut out a lot of the nonsense!
