He has a lot of his things for sale but not all. But Justin is right, Kevin should win the whole thing. He is the best. It upset me that a little girl beat Nathan last year, but Kevin beats them all. I'ts Kevins creativity that will keep him going.

that's what makes him so great.

I believe the reason we are left with boy Shakira and Kevin James is simple.
Originality.
Granted Anthony Read is great at what he does, but it is an effect that has been around for a long time. I believe our audiences are growing tired of seeing magic boxes and half naked women. What makes both Kevin and Boy Shakira memorable? The "wow, I have never seen anything like that before"
Much like the Ballywood dancer he is not a great dancer by Ballywood Standards but is showing use something we have never seen.

Sure Kevin showed us an old trick, sawing a women in half but did it with a originality that few in magic (besides Rajah Raboid) care to understand.
We should all wake up and try to push our art forward instead of performing effects which we have all seen on every Worlds Greatest Magic. Look a woman, a box, some music, oh my uncle does this trick!
Boy Shakira deserves to win! Because I have never seen anything like that, and I hope to see more of it in magic soon. The originality not the cross dressing!
I am also excited to see what Kevin has in store for use. Rumor around these parts is that he is going to cut Boy Shakira in half!

There's a reason we haven't seen anything like boy Shakira, because that's not talent...there's no way that Boy Shakira should have went in over Anthony Reed

"There's a reason we haven't seen anything like boy Shakira, because that's not talent...there's no way that Boy Shakira should have went in over Anthony Reed"

He says as he stands in front of what seems to be the silliest and most antiquated magic props I have seen. It seems to be a rather large box used for popping a balloon, so that stuff can fall out if it.

And Boy Shakira has no talent.
I assure you I can teach a monkey to use a balloon buster in a few hours, but getting you into the Boy Shakira outfit and teaching you to dance would seemingly be impossible.
I promise Boy Shakira spends more time practicing her/his art than most so called magicians. That visit the local shop buy a prop and perform in 15 minutes later.

An example would be Eli Kerr who screwed up a version of the shadow box and exposed its secret to the world. Of course maybe his version was original I mean the assistant also had birds, boy was that was great.

I have yet to see Boy Shakira have a bad set.

Terry please define talent?
Maybe I confused

Boy Shakira and that Indian guy who dances took two spots that should have gone to other people. Not necessarily a magician, but there were much better acts that should have gone through instead of those two jokes of acts. Meh, that's tv for you.

I think the judges have once again embarrassed themselves. They should all three go back to England.

Just saw Kevin James on the semi's tonite and I wasn't too impressed.
Hope he still gets through though. He says that he is saving the best for last though.

Just vote.

Don't forget that the judges have the job of having a well-rounded show. They want a little bit of everything to choose from, a few singers, a few specialty acts, a few dancers, a few...only on AGT acts. It's about making it interesting and providing something to talk about at the water coolers( aka internet forums). They have done their job well (not to judge but to make the show something to talk about).

Question: was Kevin James finished? Or did it abort when he got the "X" ?
My wife says he was done, but it seemed to me that everything just stopped when the buzzer went.

If that really was the end of his act, it was bad. The hand gag was like something you do for a Halloween costume.

On the other hand, if there was more, why on Earth would you "gong" a magic act if you have no idea what's in store, especially if you already know that he's awesome?

I still gave him 10 votes, but I had no trouble getting through.
