The judges' reactions were mixed. I think he even got a resounding 'X' from one. The crowd was changing "Vegas, Vegas, Vegas...". The "4th" judge had obviously wanted this contestant to go through to the next round.
I was loving all of this. But we were surprised by how much the mostly 20 something audience loved the act. Whether mockingly done or not, the judges seemed divided. So they asked the contestant to perform more in kind. The crowd joined in when he started the finger snapping to the "Addams Family" theme, then "Green Acres". Howie Mandel looked very pleased and so was I.
For the rest of the evening, Husband and I were trying to think up more theme shows with catchy songs. I was (somewhat) shocked by how many I knew! There are also many with just music and no lyrics (that we are aware of yet).
Why is this such a "happy place" for us? I suppose I could spend some time trying to figure it out. Or not. Maybe I should just let it be and be content with the fact that "...Green Acres is the place to be" and "...pleasant dreams to you..." cause "...we're gonna make it after all..."
