Last night on “America’s Got Talent” based on America’s vote five acts moved forward to the semifinals, and there were no surprises. The acts were not awe-inspiring as they previously were, and the new act chosen to join the competition from voters on television Cornell Bhangra was just too much and not entertaining.
The first acts were Sons of Serendip against Cornell Bhangra, and the former performance on Tuesday was worthy of praise, their impeccable playing the classic instruments and the lead singer’s vocals was outstanding, and they moved forward. Next came Blue Journey, Kirian & Finian Makepeace, and Dragon House, “The Agents”, and despite the choice being obvious the suspense was there hoping that the true performers and worthy of moving on were chosen, and indeed they were, Blue Journey was the act to move forward. The performers to find out their fate next were Paul Iety and Anna Clendening as far as voices are concerned, Anna Clendening’s is more powerful and she appears to have a larger stage presence, but she was eliminated and Paul Iety moved forward. The next two were Christian Stoinev and Wendy Liebman, neither of these acts was outstanding, Christian Stoinev’s talent of balancing on a finger put him forward and now he has his dog join him in the act, as far as a novelty yes it is fun, headline act, however, not likely. Wendy Liebman was hilarious during auditions but on Tuesday night she was not funny and seemed uncomfortable. Christian Stoniev wound up moving forward. And then, the fifth and final spot was to be chosen from Acroarmy, Mike Super, and Adrian Romoff, the judges praised Acroarmy for their performance, but in reality they were not impressive, Mike Super was slow and not as entertaining as before, and Adrian Romoff was just too much shaking his entire body and even losing his glasses in the process the final place was taken by Acroarmy
The final group of 12 will perform next week in hopes of receiving enough votes to move on to the semifinals, and there are some performers among them that have been favorites and without question next week they will wow the audience, judges, and viewers alike.
