Quite an interesting show
13 August 2012 | by (England, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just like the British version of the show Britains Got Talent, only it is in America.

Same sorts of talents, but as you can expect the talent competition is much more fierce as there are more people in America, therefore loads more potential talent.

For some reason most of the acts seen on this programme really do seem to be of a professional standard. That's how I see it anyway. Either they are just genuinely better or they were professional beforehand.

Jerry Springer's a great host. He hasn't lost any quality over the years.

I don't understand why David Hasslehoff and Piers Morgan are judges because I don't really believe they are properly cut out for it. Piers is some stuck up pompous idiot who likes to talk down to people, same as when he judges British acts and David Hasslehoff is just an actor. He was once judged himself wasn't he? How else did he become popular? And on that same note, the same goes for Brandy Norwood only she was much less talented and more annoying so who was she to pass judgement?

Putting all that aside, I guess you could say the same for any judge really, but the judges are needed otherwise the whole thing wouldn't work, so if you can tolerate them the whole shows not really that bad.
