Huge Congrats to the incomparable Anthony Reed and Kevin James for advancing to the AGT competition's short list. Their acts tonight were incredible. It is a shame that only one magic act could move forward and Anthony had to be dropped. Still, against talent like Mr. James'...he did incredibly well.

Yeah...I just discovered that very fact! <Shy Grin> I RARELY have a free moment to watch the telly and happened to be flicking channels in search of anything moderately interesting. Thanks for pointing out my electromedia weakness! Smile Still, I'm delighted to see Kevin moving forward. Er...if the outcome has already been determined, please leave me in the dark until the next re-run. Smile

Wow, did you see KJ sawing I half! I was impressed. The only thing I can think of is a fake h*** because the person was wearing sunglasses, it would be easier.Too bad for the other magician that made that... mistake... But he really did not have much of a chance agianst the other 2 magicians.

Wow, really good. Now I can only think of a midget or kid. He looked young, and he had a big thing over his mouth. But still very good!

Sorry emanmagic5 but methods shouldn't be discussed in this thread. Keep in mind that ( even though you are wrong on the method ) this is a public forum and anyone can read it. I don't think anyone would be fooled by disguising the word "head"anyway..LOL

Best,

Ya, just to be safe I did.

I think after watching it a few times I understand what has to be going on... but won't say it here. What will he do tonight I wonder? I can't watch though as I don't get the station. I will have to watch the re-run a Saturday, as that's what my tely gets...

Can you believe that Reed got bumped and that "Boy Shikira" made it. Ticks me off!

Ok, so the performance show is on, and Kevin gave his performance.

What did he perform you ask?

Well, the only real "illusion" I saw was the severed hand gag. You know, where you seem to be holding onto a live severed hand.

The rest of his performance seemed to be simply tossing various body parts out of a cooler, then proceeding to do the severed hand bit.

Now if this show is "rigged", and he is a hired performer, then that would explain his performance. He is sure not to be voted through this way.

Yeah, I didn't think that was the best way for KJ to represent himself...

They said he let himself down and there was no big "payoff."

They basically all said, "We were waiting for the payoff, the big finish".

They didn't seem to understand why it wasnt at the same level as his previous performances.

Also, Kevin didn"t seem to defend himself very hard either, saying, "It was a severed hand, alive".

All together it seems very suspicious.

It is rigged to some extent, why do you think Kevin's best material was at the beginning of the show? They hire professional acts(or contact them and promises a certain spot they will get to) this keeps the show fresh for the lay people to watch. Anthony Reed did not need to be on the show, he just signed a HUGE contract for several years in Guam. He mentions that in this months Magic Mag. These guys are at the producers mercy as well as the editors. TV is a different ball game then most people think regarding these types of shows.

Kevin is one of the most imaginative thinkers in the business. His performance took the judges by surprise - but those in the know in magic have known for a long time that he is one of the top magicians around. Go see his show in Las Vegas - it is pure fun and great entertainment!

I hope Kevin makes it to the next round because I think he is a great magician. He probably should have performed a different illusion because the judges were not impressed with his severed hand routine. Time will tell if America wants to give him another chance.

I loved his first two performances as well, but was very confused by this as I was waiting for a payoff as well-oh and what was with him using the last bit of his time to crack open a can of bud-just didn't make sense to me??? That said I still want him to go thru, just in hopes he'll do something on par with the first two performances again
