    Just my thoughts:
    Courtney: Yay!
    SOFIE DOSSI: Yay!
    THE PROFESSIONAL REGURGITATOR: Ugh.
    PRINCE POPPYCOCK: Love him and hope he goes very far.
    DDF CREW: Love them!
    ASHLEIGH AND SULLY: No thanks.
    TOKIO MYERS: Eh not a fan
    JON DORENBOS: YES!
    PIFF THE MAGIC DRAGON: YES!
    THE TEXAS TENORS: Yawn
    DJ ARCH JNR: Adorable
    KECHI: I am so glad she is back but at the same time I don’t think she will win against the other singers (Darci included in the singer group)
    LIGHT BALANCE: Love them! They could win this.
    DREW LYNCH: Used to really like him but honestly not so much anymore
    PAUL ZERDIN: Huge fan but I think there is only room for one ventriloquist and Darci is better.
    TOM COTTER: I forgot all about him but I looking back via youtube, I love him
    LOST VOICE GUY: Overrated
    DARCY OAKE: Not a fan
    JACKIE EVANCHO: She can win this
    TAPE FACE: At the time he was great, but looking back now and seeing who he is up against…yikes
    SUSAN BOYLE: This is amazing. She can win.
    BRIAN JUSTIN CRUM: LOVE him
    TAYLOR WILLIAMSON: Hard Pass
    KSENIYA SIMONOVA: Not a fan of sand artists
    PAUL POTTS: Not a fan at all.
    COSENTINO: Love him
    ANGELICA HALE: I feel like people either are a fan of her or hate her for some reason. I personally fall in the in between area since she is insanely talented but I never felt compelled to vote for her.
    DEADLY GAMES: I love them
    VICKI BARBOLAK: Love her
    ISSY SIMPSON: Overrated
    UZEYER NOVRUZOV: He gives me anxiety
    SAMUEL J. COMROE: YES!
    COLIN CLOUD: Love him
    ALEX MAGALA: Love him
    PREACHER LAWSON: He is the funniest out of all the comedians in my opinion so I think it’s between him and Samuel as the two comedians that can win
    BIANCA RYAN: Blast from the past lol
    CRISTINA RAMOS: Huge fan!
    VIKTOR KEE: Creeps me out but love him
    JUSTICE CREW: Overrated
    BILLY AND EMILY ENGLAND: Anxiety attack number two
    MOONLIGHT BROTHERS: Meh
    KENICHI: Yay!
    SAL VALENTINETTI: Not a fan at all
    SHIN LIM: YES!
    SARA AND HERO: Ugh
    THE CLAIRVOYANTS: Love them
    Sons of Serendip: Meh
    Attraction: I know them from Youtube and am not a fan
    RYAN STOCK AND AMBERLYNN: Yeah….I love them
    DARCI LYNNE FARMER: Honestly, I think it’s between her and three others for the win because she is that goo and that popular.

    This would be my dream top 15:
    1)DARCI LYNNE FARMER
    2)SHIN LIM
    3)ANGELICA HALE
    4)Susan Boyle
    5)Kechi
    6)BRIAN JUSTIN CRUM
    7)DEADLY GAMES
    8)CRISTINA RAMOS
    9)PREACHER LAWSON
    10)PRINCE POPPYCOCK
    11)VIKTOR KEE
    12)SAMUEL J. COMROE
    13)JON DORENBOS
    14)JACKIE EVANCHO
    15)Collin Cloud

    No joke. I know people that hate them because they are so scared by them.

    The two main problems I have with AGT:The Champions (not that I won’t be watching every episode, mind you) are:

    1. They’re implying that the winner is “the best (World’s) Got Talent act ever,” even though a considerable number of winning acts aren’t there while a number of acts that didn’t win are. Examples: Jackie Evancho is there, but she finished second to Michael Grimm, who isn’t; also, Susan Boyle is there, but she also finished second on Britain’s Got Talent, to Diversity (a dance group), which isn’t, and The Clairvoyants are there while Grace VanDerWaal isn’t.

    2. All of the descriptions I have seen make it sound like all of the voting will be by some combination of the judges and selected “superfans,” without knowing any details as to how the “superfans” are chosen other than there are supposed to be fans from every state.

    Im sure its going to be very rigged … and that the top ten or so will be very highly curated

    My major worry is this: On DWTS Junior, it was audience vote only. So these kids brought small armies of people to the shows. I’d guess contestants on this would think the same way if there is any audience voting.

    I think the entire audience is pre-screened for this. There was definitely a form you needed to fill out. I am also fairly certain that, while it “says” that there are people from all 50 states, pretty much the entire audience is from the Los Angeles area, the way that game shows will say people are “originally from” somewhere.

    Vicki – She is so amazing … makes me so sad only two move on … she was great
    Susan boyle- wow she really can sing . I knew she was going to get the golden buzzer and im pretty sure she will win the whole thing.

    With this line up I see Darci getting the golden buzzer and then Piff the magic dragon making the vote

    Obs someone can pull a preacher and can Slay it …. But I don’t know .. I do think they want to the top ten to de a diverse group of acts so I don’t think its going to be five singers and five comedians ..

    Two things I noticed in the credits:

    First, the “superfans” that decide who go through are not necessarily the same from one show to the next, and were chosen from an “online survey”; while the AGT site no longer has the survey itself, the page is still there, and it says that each “superfan” has to live in the Los Angeles area and be available for tapings (pretty much the way Hell’s Kitchen diners are now chosen).

    Second, “in addition to the announced prize” (and I have not heard one announced yet), the winner gets $25,000, which, coincidentally, is what one annual payment would be if a season winner did not take the lump sum.
