Tonight they announced which 5 of these 10 AGT semifinalists will be going on to the AGT top 20. To me the only real shocker is the Zooperstars. I was also sad to see Jonathan Arons in the bottom 5, but other than Zooperstars I don’t see an act that he should replace. See below for my full review of the AGT top 40 acts.
5 Acts Going to the AGT Top 20
Queen Emily – She’s the queen. I think we all realized that she’d make the AGT top 20. A wonderful talent, a wonderful stage presence and a wonderful story. She’s just wonderful.
Paul Salos – I must admit that I’m not a huge Frank Sinatra guy, but this guy seems to do him pretty well. Maybe someone who knows Sinatra better than I should judge.
Wright Kids – There’s something nice, unique and innocently wonderful about this act. I think bluegrass music will be better for them, but let’s hope they choose some of the more modern bluegrass music that will be more popular with America.
Daniel Jens – I wonder how long he can last as a military man. He has a nice voice with moments of pure greatness, but also has moments where you just wonder if he should really be on the show.
Zooperstars – I always knew that the Hoff and Sharon Osborne were delusional, but there is just something deeply wrong about putting this act through over BBDC. It’s not even really a competition when you consider which one has more talent. It’s not even close and I feel very bad for BBDC. Piers was dead on with his decision. Too bad Sharon and the Hoff really screwed it up for BBDC.
5 Acts Getting Sent Home
Jonathan Arons – I can see why America didn’t keep him on the show, but he was very entertaining. The guy also has guts to go on AGT with a trombone. Probably the first and last one to do that and actually get compliments from the judges.
Beyond Belief Dance Company – Very unfortunate that we’re not going to see them again, but yet we’ll have to see Zooperstars do more or less the same routine again that we’ve already seen. What a pity. Sharon and the Hoff are fools and I’m sure they’ll later regret this decision.
Kazual – I hope the guy in this group that is a great lead will come back next year as a soloist and really knock it out of there. His voice was really great, but the group as a whole was just so so.
Slippery Kittens – Not my thing. Glad their gone. I did find it unique that such a riska act came from Salt Lake City. I think you can quickly say…not a mormon.
George the Giant – I liked a couple things he did in the beginning, but his performance in the end deserved to be sent home.

Most of these seemed really obvious except for Zooperstars and that was just Sharon and Hoff trying to make good television?
