leon & romy lost because of WKTV Don Shipman ,, last nights show ended and Americas got talent only posts the phone numbers to call for a sec and the news started right afterwards and the news and don shipman could have posted the numbers to call to vote for them during the news cast but they chose not to instead don shipman directed people to his personal site for the phone number to call for his own personal gain people could have just went to AGT to get the number to vote anyways L&R would have had a better chance if wktv ran the call number during the broadcast for the two hour voteing limit but chose not to instead don shipman directed them to his site he didnt even know the number and or couldnt tell you the number when he was broadcasting from ny SMH stupid and or selfish i hope he enjoyed his short trip to nycity

You think there really were enough votes from the WKTV broadcast area to make the difference? lol Hell, most people in Rome watch the NBC affiliate out of Syracuse any how.

Such a ridiculous post. The voting system is nationwide, They simply lost because of better talent than theirs.

Wrong. People voted, they just didn't get enough nationwide votes to continue in the competition.

I Agree

I agree!!!! Don could have and SHOULD have told the viewers the phone numbers as he did the story. But instead told viewers to go to his face book and whatever pages. People who don't have the internet couldn't vote!!!! I thought this was very strange. I was ready with pen and paper for the numbers and NOTTA!!! Just Wrong! I don't agree that is why they lost but numbers should have been announced during the story on the news!

If I had to make an assumption, I would guess that if every single person voted for them that lived in Utica, they still would have lost. Although it's not announced how many voted, I would say it's in the 40 to 50 million votes nationwide. They could have lost by many millions and the entire population of Utica and surrounding areas wouldn't have given them the win. I'm not saying their no good, but we've all seen magic tricks many times over and over to the point where we're not wowed anymore. There are extremely talented acts on that show that people have never seen before and that's the wow factor that gets the most votes.

Honestly, IMO, that Kenichi Ebina was far better and more unique. Not saying L&R weren't good in their own right, but anyone going up against that guy was a sure lose. This doesn't mean Kenichi is a shoe-into win. 2 years ago I thought I-Lumination would win because they were so unique but I think some singer won instead. I decided not watch it anymore after that. So I only watched it this season for Leon.

Wow!! Where did I say all that?? I said if they lost by millions of votes, this entire area wouldn't have given the win to move forward. Obviously the viewers on a nationwide level didn't find them interesting enough to get the votes needed. People are finding that Collins Key magic is more interesting to watch. He's still there.
