Best Finds: America’s Got Talent 2016

Hi readers! After putting up my 50th post on Fool’s Bench a month ago, I decided to take a break from writing to mark this little milestone but also to come back after that with even more fresh ideas that I can share with all of you through this site. So now I am happy to say – I’m back! And yes, I have a lot of things on my mind right now that I want to write about. But let’s talk about something fun first, shall we? 😉

Now I must confess; I’ve been watching a lot of competition shows on YouTube recently during my free time. Specifically, I am closely following the current season of America’s Got Talent (AGT). And I’m telling you, it is a whole load of fun and satisfaction to watch incredible people pulling off their acts successfully and receiving praise from the judges. So if you’re interested in this kind of stuff, check the show out!

As for those of you who are a little busier in life (thank you for taking time out to drop by!) and want to just have a little taste of the best acts in this season of AGT without having to look them up yourself, I have put together some of my personal favorites so far and listed them below. Of course, these aren’t the only acts that are great and the show is still running! But as of today, these are my favorite acts & people that have amused, amazed or inspired me. Enjoy!

Laura Bretan

Watch as an unassuming 13 year-old girl awe the judges and the crowd with an opera performance, earning her the season’s very first Golden Buzzer.


Grace VanderWaal

A 12 year-old Grace engages the crowd with a sweet personality, an original song and a unique voice, receiving a Golden Buzzer.


Kadie Lynn

Get great vibes listening to yet another 12 year-old that sings and performs like she’s already 21.


Jon Dorenbos

A professional football player displays his other talent to the judges, ups his game in his second performance, and brings home a ticket straight to the Live Shows.


Calysta Bevier

After appearing on a viral video across social media and eventually even on Ellen, 16 year-old Caly overcame cancer and inspires the world once again with her Fight Song.


Ryan Beard

Hands down one of the funniest personalities I’ve seen on the current season of America’s Got Talent.


Sofie Dossi

With her signature “bow & arrow” move and the fact that she’s self-taught makes Sofie my number 1 favorite contestant on the show so far. Amazing.


ThroWings

The teamwork and mutual trust between this couple, as well as their abilities make me want to see what else they can achieve.


The Passing Zone

This cool duo produces some of the most entertaining acts involving the judges this season.


Steven Brundage

Steven with his sense of humor and distinctive tricks will blow your mind as you step into a realm where you’ll never see a Rubik’s cube the same ever again.


p.s. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Got Talent series, the Golden Buzzer is a concept that allows each of the judges (including guest judges) to send contestants straight to the Live Shows – the quarterfinals of the competition. But of course, it can only be used once by every judge during the Audition or Judge Cut rounds.
