Exactly one week from today, America's Got Talent will crown someone the best new act in America. From a (reported) pool of over seventy-five thousand acts who auditioned, the AGT judges and America have narrowed it down to six:
At this point, the final performance is practically just for formalities. With the exception of Collins Key and maybe Kenichi Ebina, everyone watching has pretty much already decided who they want to win and who they intend to give all of their votes to.
Contrary to the constant assertions by Howard Stern and Howie Mandel, this is not the best year America's Got Talent has ever had, and this is not the best set of finalists America has ever had to choose from.
For most people, this is an easy choice that has, in their opinions, already been decided.
What Stern and Mandel can boast should they choose to is that this season has been one of the least predictable on record, with top talents like Deanna DellaCioppa, Ciana Pelekai and the American Hitmen being eliminated in the first round while some complete wastes of time (they know who they are) continue to linger.
Despite this, the AGT Examiner will try to make sense of the six finalists anyway.
Just a reminder: this is not a list of the acts in the order they are expected to place. These are the six finalists arranged from least likely to win the grand prize to the most.
