PureAGT Season 8, Live Show #1 – SPOILERS!!! Who Made it Through to the Next Round?

Well, that was a rather odd first live results show, if I do say so – one musical act (performing a song that has already worn out its welcome on AGT this season), followed by two groups of three acts where NOBODY made it through, one group of three where two made it through, and a final group of three where one made it through instantly and the judges picked from the remaining two.  The whole rhythm of tonight’s show just felt really…awkward to me.  Just like last night’s show.  I think they may still be playing with the format a bit to see what works and what doesn’t…

…and now that I’ve wasted enough space to spare those on Twitter, I can reveal that the 4 acts advancing to the semifinals are the Kristef Brothers, Collins Key, Branden James, and Anna Christine (who beat out The American Hit Men in the judges’ choice for the last spot, by virtue of 2 votes for each and Anna getting more viewer votes overall).  Overall, I think I’m ok with the acts that made it through – I would have personally taken the Hit Men over Anna, just due to the fact that she really crumbled under the pressure last night while they didn’t; but I think we will see the Hit Men again in the wild card round, and maybe Alexanderia the Great as well.

So what do you guys think of tonight’s results? Did the right 4 acts make it through?
