  4. AGT is a much better show of australian talent that the voice.It deserves better ratings. the voice is so rehearsed. the judges put their hands near the buzzer but dont press it and then tell the singer that they are wonderful, great voice etc. Then why didnt you press the damn buzzer to have them in your team. Also note that in the US the voice is up against dancing with the stars and dancing is blitzing the ratings. So much so that the finale of the voice this sunday has been moved back to after dancing to avoid a ratings failure.

  6. Just wondering where Kate is to bag out AGT due to Kyle. Is her no show due to the show increasing it’s audience despite Kyle?
