This spring AGT came to Seattle as one of their scouting and filming locations.....as a recent Seattle transplant (previously from Washington DC) I can say what Seattle has as talent is really talented, and what's not REALLY talented is just plain humiliatingly bad. One girl really sticks out that was phenominal and blew everyone away. Her name was Cara and had a touching story and experience that had the entire audience first snickering, then so touched we were crying, then blown out of our freaking seats as she belted out a Barbara Striesand (forgive the spelling I'm not a fan) song. OMG she made the recent British phenom Susan Boyles look like a no talent. Keep an open ear out for her and open mind. She is a truely talented and sweet woman. Seattle is a special place.... I love it here but it is like living in a completly different universe. What i saw during the afternoon and evening taping of America's Got Talent I felt like a little kid seeing an "R" movie for the first time..... Much of what came out of Seattle was down right terrible bordering on hysterical that these people actually thought they had talent. Just tune in and you will know what I mean. There were a handful of acts that were really, really good and then there are the "I can't believe they made it past the filtering phase" A middle aged couple in silver spandex and beer guts twirling in a hanging hoola-hoop, an aisian stripper in a pink gorilla suit, lots of balancing acts, lots of "burlesque" acts....not sure if that is a local thing or if I am just so into the soaps and NASCAR (both soooo not Burlesque) that I'm not in touch with what is hip but I must admit one of the acts was a belly dancer in hot pink I think her name was actually Fusia.....WOW she was good. I could have watched her all night. I felt so bad because the audience snickered and then went silent and screamed at the end for her to go to Las Vegas she was that good. Seeing AGT was certainly one of the most memorable experiences of recent times. Tune in and let me know what you think of my new neighbors(lol) and contestants from other cities.
