Last night on “America’s Got Talent” the top five acts were chosen based on America’s vote and judge’s opinion. There was a big disappointment that should have never taken place and that is “The Willis Clan” being eliminated, just outrageous, it would have been fair to put them up against “Baila Conmigo” and then sending this last dance troupe home.
No, it did not happen that way, instead the first three to be called up front were “Jasmine Flowers”, “Emily West” and “Vilo & Bobby” no big surprise there, only one would move on and it was “Emily West”, great choice. And then the disappointment began when the next three were announced “Dan Naturman”, a favorite, “The Willis Clan”, a big favorite and only one would move forward, the third act was “Sean & Luke”, but this last one was not in the top, and then “Dan Naturman” moved forward and that meant that “The Willis Clan” was eliminated and that is heartbreaking. Next group of there were “Julia Goodwin”, “JD Anderson”, and “Miguel Dakota” and this last one moved forward who is also a fan favorite, that meant two spots were left and three acts remained “David & Leeman”, “Baila Conmigo”, and “Flight Crew Jump Rope”. And the fourth act to move forward were “David & Leeman”, not a big surprise, but then the judges would decide between the two acts remaining, and aside from Mel B. they all chose “Baila Conmigo” to move forward; that was also a disappointment.
Next Tuesday, 12 acts will perform and once again on Wednesday five will move on and the others will be sent home, and hopefully next week there are no disappointments. Recaps and episodes can be watched online at www.nbc.com/agt
