Trivia

Unless all four vote unanimously on a contestant, the "celebrity talent scouts"' votes do not actually count. A panel of four other judges, consisting of network executives and producers, also casts votes (unanimously) after consulting backstage. This means that if three celebrity panelists vote for one contestant but all four non-celebrity judges do not, that contestant will not make it through. This was brought to light when panelists Drew Carey and 'Brett Butler' objected to contestants not being voted through when they, along with panelist 'Anthony Clark', had voted for them. See more »

Took 8 seasons to find a formula that is razor-sharp...
19 July 2014 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Like its sister show AGT, LCS took a long time to get the formula right. The first season ended with Dat Phan winning .... whatever the judges were on that year, they should have shared some with the viewers at home. For season 8, the judges (as is the case with AGT) are finally functioning as a team (although one suspects Russell Peters is not quite as well known as he thinks he is, and seems occasionally lost, actually making this reviewer nostalgic for highly photogenic Natasha Legerro).

Unlike the case with Season 1, one suspects that, whoever actually wins, there will be multiple career breaks to go around. Joe Machi, for example, is the kind of creative spirit that most TV comedy show writing teams would kill for; Rod Man has a delivery so unique they could teach it in Comedy School and even then no one would be able to imitate it; and that self-conscious Canadian comic "who looks like a mannequin" comes across as a genuine diamond in the rough. Good TV!
