Like Nick Cannon stated earlier in the show this was the last semi-finals of the season for ‘America’s Got Talent’ results show. Season 5 started on June 1st so it is exactly three months to the day now. ‘America’s Got Talent’ is not yet over, but it will soon be. Wednesday night’s results show was bordering on predictable and boring, except for the sensational Vegas act, Le Reve. Up and coming R&B singer sang his latest release while promoting his imminent tour. Overall, this was another lackluster results show when even the judges’ choice was clear who they wanted to put through right away. Where was the drama?
Debra Romer, Michael Grasso, Murray and Nathaniel Kenyon
All these results shows have started out the same way week after week with Nick greeting them in the green room and calling out the first three or four acts to come on stage. Wednesday night was no different from its robotic routine. You can tell I am getting weary from all of these shows with all of its predictability with what the judges will say and so on and so forth. Once again like clock work it was obvious who was going through and who were all going home. Michael Grasso, along with his brilliant assistant, is in the finals. He is another Wild Card act to go through.
By far one of the most amazing and exciting variety acts this season to perform on ‘America’s Got Talent’. This acrobatic troupe performed some astonishing and spectacular stunts I have ever seen. The men and women were all dressed in these flowing, tattered red skirts (the women also wore red tops). It was the men who did a lot of the more daring stunts. All I could think of during this performance was how difficult and dangerous these acrobatic moves are. It brought me back to my childhood days learning acrobatics in dance class. If you are ever in Las Vegas go to the Wynn and see Le Reve. They are truly mind-blowing.
Fighting Gravity & Jeremy VanSchoonhoven
When they called out these two sensational acts out I just knew they were both going through, because only six other acts were left. That meant only two acts would be going through in total afterwards. You had to have one act go through for the judges’ choice. The trick did not work this time as it was obvious Fighting Gravity and Jeremy is in the Top 5.
Here we go with some serious autotune singing. I thought his first song was an utter bore with the full length mirrors following him around. Can we say narcissistic much? However, I enjoyed the second song with its upbeat dancing and light show. Too bad there wasn’t more of that.
Haspop, Jackie Evancho and Maestro Alexander Bui
I’m sure Haspop and the Maestro knew they were doomed from the start being saddled with the operatic munchkin. Of course Little Miss Sunshine in in and they are out. That was the most obvious no-brainer of the night. Yawn……
Studio One Young Beast Society, Michael Lipari & Ashleig Dejon and Alice Tan Ridley
It would certainly not be a results show on ‘America’s Got Talent’ without the good ol’ judges’ choice. One of my favorite acts was the first to be sent home, Michael Lipari and Ashleigh Dejon. I guess they are now considered a danger act, since they scared the daylights out of the audience and wear no safety harnesses. Hmm……it seems danger acts always go home too early. Now it was between Alice and the Studio One. I refuse to call them by their full name, because it is too long and not very catchy. Personally, just leave it at Studio One. That sounds much better.
At any rate, Piers chose without much hesitation Studio One. Sharon was next to make her choice. With very little deciding she chose Studio One. Alice Tan Ridley, whose daughter starred in the film “Precious”, is now out. They brought out all of the Top 10 finalists and they are:
Anna and Patryk
