America’s Got Talent Season 7: WildCard Auditions Top Four!

Last week I posted a poll that asked which of the four Wildcard acts would you want to make it through to the semi-finals. From that original poll:
- Andrew de Leon
- Todd Oliver
- Spencer Horsman
- Lindsay Norton

After watching last night’s episode Katie’s top four picks were:
- Todd Oliver
- Bandbaz Brothers
- Andrew De Leon
- Spencer Horsman

Interestingly enough three of the four acts appeared to have stepped up their game enough for Katie to place them in the top four. Lindsay however, was in the middle of the pack for Katie. Where was Bandbaz Brothers in the original poll? Oddly enough at the bottom of the poll.. interesting.

However, after seeing the results show we have a surprising change in the standings… America chose:
- Todd Oliver
- Andrew De Leon
- All That
- Sebastien “El Charro de Oro”

Now, Todd Oliver and Andrew De Leon appear to be “shoo-ins” from all different realms depending on which poll or post you look at, however, the other two… well to say that I was surprised is a bit of an understatement. So let’s look at how I think they will fair:
All That: What they pulled this week was inventive and fun to watch. The stripping wasn’t too bad either. What I like about this group is that there are ways to turn a group into a full one hour show. There is that much flexibility where they could dance a full group of seven or in smaller groups or even as individuals… This is going to be an interesting to see what else they could bring to the table after this though. I would love to see lots of layers of dance and the numbers of people dancing so we’ll see. In the end it would be largely dependent on what they bring onto the table come the Semi-Finals that would help decide how they will do.

Todd Oliver and Irving: Oh Em Gee. I am really liking this comedy act. Now that Todd Oliver has changed up his jokes and did something topical he is really drew my attention. One issue, he could create really slick jokes without having to be topical but it is nice to have that as a part of his repertoire. In fact the other comedians that have come through thus far had really good material and haven’t even touched the surface of current events. So I would be curious to see what else Todd and Irving could bring to the plate that would be entertaining, because right now I am not 100% sure he’d make it to the finals, but he could give others a run for their money as long as he stays on this upswing.

Andrew De Leon: I would have to agree with Katie when it comes to Andrew, I think he has a magnificent voice and a really good story to boot, but honestly with the talent as tight as it is this season and polished to boot I really don’t think that Andrew will stand a chance. Unless he brings something absolutely mind-blowing to the table during the semi-finals, I really don’t see him progressing any further. However, he has the natural raw talent and in all honesty he could come out on top in the end… he is a “diamond in the rough” and with time and training could really polish and shine down the road. And I intend to be towards the front row when he gets there. Side Note: Maybe he and Prince Poppycock could duet together… I’ll pay to see that!

Sebastien “El Charro de Oro”: As I have mentioned before I have never been a fan of children on this show… I really don’t like the idea of a pre-teen or younger having a full one hour show revolve around them. That being said Sebastien is rather entertaining and I am curious to see what else he could bring onto the table, however, he still has a lot of growing and polishing to do. I am curious to see how far he can go but I would be surprised if he makes it to the Finals.
