America’s Got Talent loves to showcase some kind of circus side act or freak show every year. Howard claims that the Cut Throat Freak Show was interesting. But half of the audience seemed to be booing or moaning.
This kind of act freaked me out about one time. It becomes rather obvious that what they are doing looks freaky or scary or potentially dangerous. But if it were really that dangerous, would they be doing it over and over again? Visually, it has a shock effect. But in reality, it doesn’t seem that dangerous and is good only for freaking people out.
By the way, these acts are usually eliminated in the Las Vegas round. And that is probably what will happen to Cut Throat Freak Show. But even if they do make the Top 48, it is extremely probable that they will not get past one voting round. People vote for dangerous acts when they are also thrilling. There is nothing thrilling about a freak show.
YouTube Ratings and Statistics:
The ratings on Cut Throat Freakshow’s YouTube video reflect my own sentiments. It has 18 Likes and 8 Dislikes so far. Too many people are turned off by acts with a freakish nature. These guys (and girl) stand no chance of winning America’s Got Talent 7. The statistics show 315 views, but that number has not yet been updated because this YouTube video is less than 24 hours old.
