    To be charitable, last night’s YouTube round was underwhelming. That was a bad restart after the the Olympics hiatus.
    I believe these YouTube performers should be the first live show, with winners getting to ‘quarterfinals’ instead of directly to the semi-finals.

  • Bills

    They need all of the numbers they can get but I already predicted before that Gabby and McKayla Maroney would be used on people’s programs for ratings.

  • JR

    Is Gabby going to “perform” a gymnastics routine?

  • Chris

    To me, there were only three standouts last night: Clint Carvalho, Bria Kelly, and Academy of Villains, the latter being the only GREAT act. I am hoping these three are among the four that are voted through.

    That having been said, to JR, I would have to say you’re right in that Gabby Douglas would perform a gymnastics routine. I mean, what else could I think of that she would do?
