Astonishing -- the ONLY "talent" show to evolve, to get it right...
3 July 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

IMDb, for all its many wonders, is really is not set up to rate or review a "reality talent show" that has been running for 9 years and keeps evolving so that, in effect, season 9 has as much in common with season 1 as Obama does with JFK. To this humble scribe, AGT in season 9 is not only the best of all the reality-talent shows but, ironically, the show also demonstrates that it is both possible and desirable for these shows to evolve, to fix their own flaws, and become better. And better is the operative word here. While competitors like THE VOICE actually become more unctuous and puffed-out from season to season (it should be called what it really is - THE EGOS) here in season 9 of AGT the "hosts" have formed a team of common purpose that other shows should be jealous of. Maybe on their own each of these characters has flaws and weaknesses -- no doubt -- but, as an ensemble, Howie, Howard, Mel and Heidi someone have become a show of their own, and that is really what was needed for this "yet another Simon Cowell production" to kick into high gear. The storyline is, was, and always will be just another iteration of the 1950s TED MACKS AMATEUR HOUR; and in their hearts the viewers already know that what starts off as a love-fest will end up looking like a butcher shop, as act after act is cut. Talent-wise -- and I confess I have seen almost every season -- the only actual "acts" I remember are the car wash guy who could imitate Sinatra (I think he won) and a 10 year old girl from Vegas who did a version of Wild Horses that gave me chills (she was booted, probably because her voice and age did not match, and that always freaks out the audience). But the name is, like most TV shows, a misdirection. It is not about the talent on stage, it is about the talent judging the talent. That is the entertainment. And this show has figured that out.
