For once, I’m not feeling outraged about the results tonight - I am, however, beginning to get concerned about the number of singers making it through to the semifinals. And I think Howie and I may be on the same page, because he seemed to subtly (ok, NOT so subtly) insinuate that America “got it wrong” last week…and that we have “such a great variety of acts to share with America!” I don’t know about you, but to me that screams “You idiots shouldn’t have voted Marty through…and stop voting so many other singers through!!!”
…so now that we’ve got that out of the way, the 4 acts that made it through to the semifinals were The American Military Spouses Choir, Kenichi Ebina, Jonathan Allen, and the Chicago Boyz (who beat out Mitsi Dancing School in the judges’ choice, by virtue of getting 3 judges votes).
I absolutely agree with Kenichi and the Chicago Boyz making it through (although I’m a little surprised that the latter didn’t get more votes). AMSC? I think they’re probably going to struggle if the other choir makes it through to the semifinals as well, but I can understand why America voted them through. Now I actually like Jonathan Allen as a person – but sorry kids, I’m all opera’d out. I can really only muster up the enthusiasm for Forte…Jonathan? Meh, and Branden…no. I really only see Forte making it past the semifinals. Will be interesting to see what the Chicago Boyz come up with for the semifinals – they seemed to indicate that the guy who broke his leg last night was one of the more central members of the team, and their coach had a bit of a worried look on his face when he heard they’d been voted through. Hope they can pull it together.
So what are your thoughts on tonight’s results?
