Heidi and I Always Invite Ourselves Over to Howard’s Place for Dinner
I am so excited going into the live shows. We’ve got 47 absolutely amazing acts, from the singers to the magicians to the danger acts, which I’m particularly looking forward to. It’s going to be one hell of a live show, that’s for sure.
The eliminations are horrible because the people we put through are so talented, so it’s hard to split everyone up. I wish we could have just put everyone through and be done with it, but that’s not how it works.
I loved Miguel Dakota. He’s going to be absolutely amazing, and he’s very humble—people really do like him. In the singing department, we got really good singers, like the young girl with the glasses who’s got a really soulful voice. Then there was Paul Ieti, the singer who was in the military. He has a really soulful voice too.
Watch Miguel Dakota’s performance:
But I think what’s going to be interesting is to see how the two salsa dancers, John and Andrew, go down with the audience because they’ve been a hit after hit after hit. It’ll be nice to see exactly what America thinks of them.
I’m really glad Juan Carlos got through. He is such a character and it’s not just about being talented; it’s about the whole entire package. He owns the fact that he’s a rollerblader! He’s not that talented but his personality is massive. You can’t help but fall in love with him a little bit.
The Willis Clan are a force to be reckoned with because they can really harmonize, and even the song they auditioned with, they did in their own way, which is always a good thing. They made it sound a little bit more country.
And let’s not forget about the comedians. I love Wendy Liebman, the stay-at-home mom who’s getting her mojo back by getting herself back out there and giving it a go. She was actually really funny, with a kind of dry sense of humor.
When we’re in New York doing the live shows, we always invite ourselves over to Howard’s place for dinner. He gets his chef in, and we then we all run around his house and jump on his bed and act like idiots, and we have some nice lovely wine. It’s literally me and Heidi inviting ourselves over, and then we bring Howie with us. It’s funny.
I can’t wait for the live shows. I’m just figuring out what I’m going to wear, since it’s all live next week. I’ve got to pull out all the stops!
