The second round of the semi-finals began tonight. Jackie Evancho and Fighting Gravity were just a couple of the amazing acts. There were singers, dancers, magicians, and so much more. It’s difficult to say who will make it to the next round.
Jackie Evancho the 10-year-old YouTube sensation made her appearance in this round of the semi-finals. The crowd got to their feet half way through the performance in awe. She was absolutely amazing and there is no question on whether she’ll make it to the next round of the competition.
Alice Tan Ridley the subway singer began the show by belting her beautiful voice out to an inspirational tune. Her performance was excellent and her voice was flawless. She showed range in pitch and a unique comfort on stage.
Haspop is a man who dreams of bringing his children to America. He performs by incorporating dance and
interesting body language. He performed to a montage of popular dance songs but ended up with a big red ‘X’
Maestro Alexander Bui was born with a natural talent as a pianist. He incorporated classical tunes with a modern pop edge in attempt to impress the judges. Howie buzzed this wonderful musician but the crowd answered Howie’s buzz with loud booing.
Michael and Ashley wowed the judges and America in the wild card episode with their amazing stunts and passionate romance. Their aerial performance was enough to convince the audience but it may not be enough to bring them through to the next round.
Michael Grasso the magician performed a disappearing act mid-air. All the judges were amazed when Grasso ended up behind them and the woman he made disappear was left standing in his place. The audience was left trying to figure out how he managed to pull off that trick.
Debra Romer is a singer with a difficult past. She ran away from home and began her life on her own. Waiting tables to pay the bills and pursuing her dream as a singer. She sang well but it is unclear whether her abilities will be enough to trump some of the other talented acts.
Studio One Young Beast Society is the only dance crew left in the semi-finals. The dancers are young but their skills are refined as coordinated well. They proved they deserve to be there with excellent choreography and a great music choice.
Jeremy the daredevil had a rocky practice that led to a hospital visit. The fall had made him even more nervous in this level of the competition. He fell several times during his presentation. It was clear that his nerves were still shaken from practice. He landed the finale stunt but was given an A for effort but will that be enough?
Nathaniel Kenyon is a young singer who uses his music to inspire others. He dreams of becoming a singing sensation. His music choice was excellent and his voice was perfectly in tune. He may be the next up and coming male pop star. He was buzzed by Pierce but cheered by the audience.
Murray sought to perform the largest trick ever attempted on the America’s Got Talent stage. This magician took two audience members to ensure the trick was not rigged in any way. He made a steel train disappear from the stage.
Fighting Gravity is a group of fraternity brothers who took a big risk to continue the show. They are currently unemployed and have decided to skip a semester of classes to dedicate more time to their performances. Hopefully due to that sacrifice they will make it through to the next round and make their efforts worth while. Their performance was truly one of a kind and an excellent example of unique talent.
