SEMIFINALS GROUP TWO
So there you have it! The first four acts that are making it to the Semifinals of America’s Got Talent. Based on the poll that Katie put up yesterday, I say that it was a fair representation of what the general audience enjoyed from the show. In fact I agree with a lot of Katie’s choices for who was to definitely move on and who had the best chance of moving on, though I was surprised that the American BMX Stunt Team wasn’t part of the split for the Judges’ Choice, but that’s just me. The question I am wondering is who actually has the potential to be the “Million Dollar Act” in Vegas.
So below are the four acts that made it through to the semifinals and my thoughts on them as well as how far I think they are going to go this season.
This week there are three days of America’s Got Talent at 8:00pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
At the top of Vegas Week the judges have separated the acts into two primary groups:
– Judges Favorites: are the acts that the judges believe have the best chance to succeed on the live shows
– Standbys: are the acts the judges are unsure about and will see them if there are slots available after the Judges Favorites have gone through
Anyone whose name is not found under the two groups mentioned above they would not perform in Vegas and would be going straight home that day. The catch is with that though is that some acts that do not have a chance to prove their worth at all while there will be some others that were given a free pass to the Live Shows in New York. The acts that we will definitely see in the Live Shows include:
– William Close: Earth Harp
– Olate Dogs: Dog Act
– David “the Bullet” Smith: Human Cannonball
While the Judges Favorites are performing the Standbys are required to sit in the audience and watch what happens. What I found to be interesting is that people are crumbling left and right. I am not used to seeing that for America’s Got Talent, but a major part of that could be how the show is being edited to evoke maximum drama within a one-hour show.
On Wednesday / Thursday I will post who made the Top 48 Acts (well now 45 since 3 acts got a free pass to New York) that are moving on to the Live Shows in New York, I will also attempt to breakdown who came from which group / category so we can see how they all panned out.
