Just finished watching Connor on AGT. I wish everyone knew how hard it is to fly a rev but flying a stack of two and flying backwards is something I wish I could do for about 30 seconds and he is doing it indoors. Talk about the WOW factor. Just waiting to get our votes in at the end of the show. Way to go Connor.

Way to go Connor... we love the 'ace up your sleeve' with the twin kites and love the choice of song...
I may have to wrestle my wife's phone out of her hands.. (she is threatening to vote for the rope hanging couple) but not to worry, all our votes are coming your way

Could guys out East and Central please wait a couple hours after AGT to post comments so that the guys out West have a chance to watch AGT tonight without already knowing everything?

Many Thanks

Way to go Connor, you rocked the world with that performance!

That was amazing to watch and to see you own that stage and crowd.

I am sooooooo proud of you as a kite flyer and more importantly, as a friend in our rev family.

I think those loony judges finally get it. Stacked! Great idea. I've seen many kite performances, none of them can move me like Connor's does. His ability to interpret the music through his kite is wonderful. He deserves that standing ovation.

Way to go Connor !!! What a wonderful performance on Tuesday, and last night (Wed), the suspense was about to kill me. I can't imagine the pressure you must have been feeling. All I can say is "way to go", and you handled it all with such grace. When they finally announced that you would advance, I'm sure that we alarmed the neighbors, way over here in North Carolina..........................keep it up..........we're pulling for you ever step of the way.
