America's Got Talent 2019 Joseph Allen
Howie Mandel’s Golden Buzzer – I barely remember this guy, except as the guy who inexplicably got Howie’s golden buzzer. In his video package, he cries thinking about how far he’s come. He sings an original song, dedicated to his mom. It’s a mixture of rap and singing. Eh. It’s just OK? Howie calls him a shining light. “I could feel the pride shooting over our heads.” Gabrielle loves a vulnerable man, “You put your heart on this stage.” Julianne agrees with Gabrielle. She advises him not to compare himself to anybody. She felt a little apprehension. “Just be you.” Simon thought the best part of his song was his parents’ reaction from the audience, but otherwise, the performance was unremarkable. I agree with Simon, except I thought his audition was also mediocre. Joseph says “the way you treat your mom, is the way you’ll treat your wife.” Well, that will net him some votes.
Joseph put his best foot forward and earned the Golden Buzzer from Howie Mandel
21 year old from Texas is a singer/songwriter. He was the youngest of 12 in a blended family. He has won motocross racing. He taught himself how to produce music. He makes a deal with Terry. If he gets the Golden Buzzer, the host will come out and stage and hug him. Well, obviously that’s going to happen, because we’re at the end of the show. Duh. He performs an original song about the world knowing his name. He drops the judges names into the rap part.
The song is so fully tailored to the show, with an uplifting message. I guess that’s why he gets the Golden Buzzer. Oh, He cries at the end. It’s all very dramatic. Julianne is crying. So maybe she’ll hit her buzzer. Julianne thinks there is a generation of Millenials putting good out into the world. Simon calls his energy “amazing.” Howie calls his smile “electric.” He says, “Life is a series of moments…..” OK it’s Howie. Howie hits his golden buzzer for Joseph. Terry comes out to give him that hug.
