America’s Got Talent: Season 7, Episode 9 :: Tampa Auditions

Jun 13, 2012

This week on America’s Got Talent (Season 7, Episode 9), the judges return to Tampa Bay to continue their audition tour. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Tampa Auditions,” which aired on June 12, 2012, to discover what you missed.

Tampa Bay

It’s unfortunate to say it, but Tampa Bay was really light on talent this week. The majority of the episode was spent on the funny or the it’s-so-stupid-it’s-funny acts. Only three acts showed enough promise to move on to the next round in Las Vegas.

The Untouchables

First up was a returning dance group from last season, the Miami All-Stars. Last year, they made it into the top 10, but this year they decided to try something a little different. They returned with a smaller group of only 8 to 13-year-olds and rebranded themselves The Untouchables. Their performance was absolutely spectacular. All of them - even the 8-year-olds - danced with the talent of fully trained adults. The judges were wowed and each dancer earned a well-deserved ticket to Vegas.

American BMX Stunt Team

The American BMX Stunt Team consisted of 10+ guys on BMX bikes, scooters and inline skates doing crazy tricks on two back-to-back quarter pipes. The tricks were dangerous in that if one person went down, they’d cause a disasterous chain reaction. Luckily there were no broken bones or even bumps and bruises and the guys were all sent to Vegas.

Lindsay Norton

Lastly, 16-year-old Lindsey Norton performed an acrobatic dance solo that even Howard, who admittedly would rather pull his nails out than go to the ballet, enjoyed. Naturally, she got a ticket to Vegas.

Twiggy the Waterskiing Squirrel

While these three acts were the only ones to move on to the next round, we couldn’t end this article without paying tribute to Twiggy the Waterskiing Squirrel. If Twiggy hadn’t peed on Nick Cannon’s jacket, perhaps Howard would have been impressed enough to give him the second ‘yes’ he needed to continue on in the competition. Better luck next time, Twiggy!

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
