'America's Got Talent:' Five acts move on to semifinals

Last night on “America’s Got Talent” the votes were tallied and five acts moved forward and seven were sent home, and except for “Andrey Moraru” moving on rather than “Darik Santos”; the votes were spot on and those continuing have without question earned their place on the show.

It could be said that “Darik Santos” is so quirky that it tends to bore at times, but then he says something that is hilarious; so that is his style. “Andrey Moraru” is not a million dollar act, much less a headliner in Las Vegas, sure his strength and balance are outstanding, but just pay to watch someone balance his body on his fingers for an hour, that is very unlikely and without doubt it will get boring sooner rather than later.

“Mara Justine” moved on instead of “Acte II” and that was fair because the latter thought that but being loud it would propel them forward to the next stage on the show, and it worked against them, the former, was nervous but her vocal ability stood out. “Mat Franco” with his magic was fascinating and of course he moved forward. “Jaycob Curlee” also moved forward as he stood next to “Juan Carlos” and this was sent home and hopefully true performers would not be bothered by the likes of such an annoying individual. “Aerial Animation” also went ahead as they stood next to “Loop Rawlins” and this last act is definitely another than went from amusing in the audition to outright boring.

Next Tuesday 12 acts will perform for a spot in five and there are many favorites, and it will be heartbreaking to see some of them go. Recaps, episodes and contestants information can be found online at www.nbc.com/agt

“America’s Got Talent” runs on Tuesday at 9 p.m. and results are announced on Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT on NBC.
