The nail-biting time returns in this week’s America’s Got Talent. Seven more acts will go through to the semifinals. Will your favorites make it through?
To be honest, when Tyra said these three names, my eyes went wide. These three acts, each talented in their own right, does not deserve to be in this category. If anything, Yumbo Dump and The Sacred Riana should be the ones on this list. Their performances on Tuesday night did not wow me in any way, however, the intro video for Riana was quite scary.
When Quin and Misha were eliminated, I literally gasped in shock. Though I had a feeling that America would vote for Noah Guthrie. The guy has a great stage presence and his vocals are amazing. Even if he doesn’t end up winning the title and the money, I’m sure that Simon Cowell will connect him to some music industry experts to negotiate a recording deal.
I wasn’t too surprised when The Savitsky Cats got the boot and Voices of Hope Children’s Choir got the chance to advance. The former’s performance on Tuesday was pretty much a rehash of their previous auditions. Furthermore, the tricks that they had the cats do look the same as the ones they did before. I still wonder who voiced those cats in the intro video for Savitsky Cats. Maybe they got some friends and family to help them or perhaps the show hired voice actors?
The intermission performance featuring Light Balance and a magician duo from The Illusionists was incredible. I like the transition from magic to light show. Moreover, the song choice for Light Balance was on-point. Though it would be better if they went with a song from Imagine Dragons or Welshly Arms to add some drama to the performance. Then again, that’s just my personal opinion.
Simon then channelled his inner prankster by helping Tyra find a date. He had various men meet the supermodel at a bar and he spoke into each of the men through an earpiece, making them repeat whatever he tells them. I found the entire thing was kind of off-putting but it was nice to see comedians Preacher Lawson and Taylor Williamson make a brief cameo in this comedic relief sketch. I snickered when Heidi showed up and poured two glasses of water in Taylor’s face seeing as the comedian professed his love for the German supermodel through his material. That’s what you get for two-timing Heidi, Taylor!
The live results continued when both Samuel J. Comroe and Glennis Grace got the chance to move on. Despite the good news, Glennis almost didn’t get the message and was about to walk off the stage when Tyra stopped her, telling her that she has also made it through. Nevertheless, if I was in Glennis’ shoes, I’d probably do the same thing. Congrats to the both of them! Best of luck in the semifinals!
Duo Transcend was the next act to be sent to the semis, sending horror illusionist The Sacred Riana back where she came from. While the strange girl may have won Asia’s Got Talent, but she will never win America’s Got Talent. Mel B was beyond relieved to see Riana go cause then she will not be the center of the creepy girl’s tricks. Hope that she doesn’t place a curse on the show for eliminating her. Fingers crossed!
In the end, Makayla Phillips got saved via the Dunkin’ Save votes and Da Republik was saved from elimination when Simon gave them his vote. I felt a twinge of sympathy for Front Pictures. Their act was really good on Tuesday night. Guess the judges did not feel the same way and sent them home again. At least they were able to come back to perform as a Wild Card so it’s kind of like a win.
Top Seven (Group 2):
Voices of Hope Children’s Choir
Samuel J. Comroe
Makayla Phillips (Dunkin’ Save)
Da Republik (judge votes)
