At first I wasn’t sure who would be going through on America’s Got Talent results show Wednesday night. On the performance show Tuesday it wasn’t so clear cut, but the way they had the first three groups it could not be any more obvious who would go on to the semi-finals. However, the fourth and final group, or the judge’s choice, it was very suspenseful who the judges would pick. One of the guest performers brought the house down with their electrifying dance number while the other guest star was a bit of a bore for me. Now find out who the top four acts are in the semi-finals.
First Three Acts: South Philly Vikings, CJ Dippa and Haspop
When they brought out these three acts I simply knew who would be going through and who were going home. One of my favorite acts, Haspop, is in the semi-finals. I still watch his incredible dance/mime performance from Tuesday night whenever I get the chance. It still gets me excited when I watch Haspop. He is amazing and he deserves this spot.
JabbaWockeeZ’s Outstanding Performance
Nick Cannon stated they got their start on television in the second season of America’s Got Talent. That is when I started watching the show, but my all-time favorite act then was Terry Fator, who of course won and is still ultra successful in Vegas now. The following year was the first season of America’s Best Dance Crew and they were the winners. It seems many reality TV stars jump from one show to another.
At any rate, JabbaWockeeZ’s performance was literally the best I had seen ever on a Wednesday night results show. They truly entertained me from start to finish. I absolutely loved when they opened with samplings from Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. A lot of what they did in the early part of their routine reminded me of Haspop’s style of mime and hip hop. Then it went into a futuristic middle half and it closed out with contemporary hip hop. The guy who twirled on his head was amazing. Their costumes had these glowing fluorescent strips all over. This routine certainly had the “wow” factor that the judges were talking about earlier in the show. I’m glad they are now performing in Las Vegas.
Second Three Acts: Chipps Cooney, Polina Volchek and Studio One Young Beast Society
Here was another predictable group of acts if ever there was. I think it was intentionly arranged for these groups to have obvious semi-finalists, then leave the judge’s choice with some suspense. Naturally the judges got their wish with a dance group finally in the next round. During the Orville Redenbacher lounge commercial break with all the acts CJ Dippa confessed to having a crush on one of the girls from Studio One. That was such a cute moment.
Third Three Acts” The Strange Familiar, Luigi and Debra Romer
Yawn……can this show get any more predictable? Of course Debra Romer was put through. Unfortunately Piers Morgan said something about Debra’s performance on Tuesday that was rather shocking. He gave her a standing ovation and has been a champion for her until now. Piers stated he watched back her performance on the “telly” and he takes back the praises and standing ovation, because she sounded off-key and looked nervous. Wow Piers, that was really cold. You’re a real class act. I hope that doesn’t diminish Debra’s next performance.
Mike Posner’s song “Cooler Than Me”
Who is this singer? I’ve never heard of him nor do I want to ever again. The song “Cooler than Me” sounded rather self-indulgent. He kept having this cheesy grin through the song too. It was creeping me out. Please get someone more exciting next time.
Fourth Three Acts Determined by the Judges: Kaya & Sade, Jeremy VanSchoonhoven and Harmonica Pierre
Harmonica Pierre was sent home, so that left the belly dancers and the “Evil Knievel” of daredevil mountain bikes. Nick asked Sharon to make her choice, which she eventually chose Jeremy. Next was Piers and the time was ticking away for Howie’s turn so I had a feeling who he would pick and it was Jeremy, which meant he’s in the semi-finals. Howie got to say something afterwards. He said “Jeremy should go to Vegas, but now that Kaya and Sade have been sent home they can come to his house.” I’m wondering how Mrs. Mandel feels about that?
Next week is the last Top 12 of the quarterfinals. I’m looking forward to seeing the performance group, ArcAttack, where the guy had lightening go through his body. Prince Poppycock and Mary Ellen, the 74-year old yodeling keyboardist will definitely be entertaining.
