    OK...here is how the MATH Trick was done.

    Using C++ the calculator was reprogrammed to make the "=" actually a Memory Recall Button.

    He never tells her to hit "=" till the very end and when she did it brought up the predetermined number.

    Ahh. Interesting and plausible.

    Though it gave us a chance to get to know Howard a little better, I really don't miss him or his odd edgy character.

    I dig the show, and though I've generally been alright with all of the present judges, I wouldn't mind a complete reset with 4 new ones either gradually, or all at once.

    With shows like this and The Voice, it's inevitable that the judges' responses start to sound repetitive and tired, and though a new group of judges will also eventually suffer the same fate, I think that the show wouldn't hurt with the arrival of some new blood.

    Didn't know those existed, but there you go. Definitely makes sense.

    And would also mean that the other three he brought up on stage really had nothing to do with it. Just a distraction to build the trick.

    It's not possible. It has been a couple of different times on TV. You can find the reveal on YouTube.

    Basically he set the equals sign to bring up a specific number.

    MrsC loves the show. I just don't like it.

    Some of them are talented, but most of them are bad Vegas acts at best. Most of the rest are good Vegas acts at best.

    The dude who sang in the cartoon voices was very funny though.

    The 12 year old ventriloquist was awesome. Don't actually watch the show but I do check some of the acts on YouTube.

    How in the world did the guy from the group from Atlanta sing that high pitched?

    Also really liked the three older black men.

    The show seems to have a lot more magicians this year than normal. The kid from this week with the soccer ball/card trick was pretty good.

    Saw where they announced they are coming to Cincinnati for casting. Did not realize that you needed to sign up for a time slot. I always thought you just showed up and waited in line.

    Carlos De Antonis was really good, and certainly deserved the praise that he got, but am I the only one who's getting a little burnt out hearing "Nessun Dorma" every season during auditions?

    No doubt that it helps display a vocalist's range, but shows like these are starting to annoy me with this song as well as the completely overdone "Hallelujah", which I used to really like until it became so diluted.
