Time to look at the final 4 contestants that made it to the semifinals of America’s Got Talent 2011. Check out my analysis of the other AGT 2011 semifinalists. The biggest surprise of the night was that no singers made it through this night. Don’t worry though, 2 of the acts were dance groups. Although, Team iLuminate is so much more than just dance. I was sorry that Taylor Davis didn’t make it through. He’s one of the only singers I’ve enjoyed this year. I’d have liked him to do well. I guess I also love to see humility rewarded.
Now on to the last 4 AGT 2011 semifinalists:
Zuma Zuma – I was impressed that they took their act to the next level with the poles. Makes me wonder how much they’d practiced on the poles. It was a little hard to watch since the special guests did a similar act. Knowing that other pros do it already is a little bit of a downer. Although, I love their spirit and I hope they find something great to show in the semifinals as well.
Melissa Villasenor – I can’t figure out what it is that I love about Melissa, but I have this emotional (good emotional) reaction whenever I see her on camera. I’ve loved her ever since her audition. Last night wasn’t quite as good as her audition, but I’d still like to see a lot more of her. There’s something fantastic about her that makes me want to watch her. I honestly can’t figure out the secret. Either way, I’m so glad she made it through.
Fatally Unique – Hard to argue with their story and America loves a good story. Unfortunately, in the semi finals the storyline groups usually get sent home. I love Fatally Unique’s heart. Their choreography and dance skills aren’t over the top amazing, but their heart is beautiful to watch and enjoy.
Team iLuminate – Piers was dead on when he said it was a million dollar act. This could be produced into a million dollar Vegas show very easily. The only reason it won’t be in Vegas is if they decide to do it in LA or NY instead of Vegas. However, it fits Vegas perfectly. Add in a bit more choreography and time to program and perfect the lights with the choreography and I can see a very long running show using this technology. As a nerd lover of dance, this is right up my alley too.
