After what was mostly a lackluster night of performances, “America’s Got Talent’s” first semi-final show (airing last night Tuesday, August 27, 2013) was more of a dud than a bang. This makes tonight’s results show very interesting. There were a few standouts, but for the most part the performers seemed to come up a little short. By the end of this results show Six acts will be sent home and six acts will move on to the Top 12.
The results show kicks off with a performance from Cassadee Pope who won NBC’s “The Voice” two seasons ago. After her song we get the first group of contestants brought to the stage. Tone the Cheifrocca (who sings B double O TY) and Red Panda are both eliminated. I am still glad Howie Mandel used his wild card on Red Panda. After family issues kept her from performing it was nice that she got her shot in front of the voters.
The all-girl dance/acrobatic group Innovative Force is the first act announced as safe and moving on to the Top 12.
After a commercial, Nick announces that Duo Resonance and Jonathan Allen are eliminated. From that group the three man opera team Forte advances to the Top 12.
Next up is the choice between magician Collins Key, and comics Taylor Williamson and Angela Hoover. Angela is sent home. Both Collins Key and Taylor Williamson move on to the Top 12.
English boy band One Direction take the stage and sings their latest single which seems to make the ladies in the audience very happy.
There are three acts left and two spots remaining in the Top 12. Before the final elimination Howard Stern announces his wild card pick is magicians Leon and Romy which is a bit of shock, but he has said the likes magic acts.
The final three contestants vying for the last two spots are singers Cami Bradley and David Fenley and light/dance act Catapult. Cami Bradley advances leaving the last spot up to the judges. Mel B votes for Dave while the other three judges all vote for Catapult sending them to the Top 12.
Here are the first six of the “America’s Got Talent” Top 12:
Next Tuesday twelve more acts will perform then six will be sent home rounding out the Top 12 of "America’s Got Talent."
