Round Two of AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’s semi-finals is complete! Twelve acts performed on AGT tonight hoping to join the five acts who have already made it to the finals. Five more will go through tomorrow night and the final ten will compete in the finals.

Piers Morgan, as always, didn’t hesitate to use his buzzer at the slightest moment of discouragement. Morgan buzzed Gymkana, Summerwind Skippers and Steven Retchless. Two out of the three made mistakes in their acts and let’s face it, in the semi-finals that’s unforgivable. Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel, who always seems dismayed at Morgan’s quick trigger, let all the acts go without a slap on the red button, even those that deserved it.

But, it’s not entirely up to them. America has voted. Who will complete in the final ten?!

The Kinetic King (novelty performer)
Morgan: America really loves you.
Osbourne: That was sensational!
Mandel: It was so exciting.
Harland: It worked! However, it was not as spectacular as the last time.
Chances of getting through: Good

Fatally Unique (dance troupe)
Morgan: I love the determination in all your faces.
Osbourne: You guys move with such speed and precision.
Mandel: I wonder if you were fatally “unique” enough.
Harland: Wild dancing, shaking, rolling, and jumping around spazzily – interesting.
Chances of getting through: Good

Landon Swank (illusionist)
Morgan: You’re a very good magician.
Osbourne: The whole presentation was an “A+.”
Mandel: Wow! Absolute wow!
Harland: He brought the judges in on his act – very clever.
Chances of getting through: Great

Gymkana (gymnastic team)
Morgan: X I was trying to save lives by buzzing.
Osbourne: I was looking for the performance value and I didn’t see it.
Mandel: I am sorry about what happened.
Harland: Good gymnasts perform, then push it to the limit with fire and someone falls ultimately hurting themselves…not too entertaining.
Chances of getting through: Slim

Summerwind Skippers (jump rope dancers)
Morgan: X If you make two mistakes in a routine I’m gonna have to buzz you.
Osbourne: You guys have turned into great performers.
Mandel: You brought “edge” to skipping.
Harland: They’re cute but I’m over it and worse they made mistakes. If you make an error in the semi-finals you should be out.
Chances of getting through: Slim

Snap Boogie (breaker/hip hop dancer)
Morgan: Honestly, I didn’t like it.
Osbourne: You are so organically great.
Mandel: I think Snap did great.
Harland: Phenomenal dancer and fun to watch but will he “alone” be enough. Either way he deserves something!
Chances of getting through: Good

Anna Graceman (singer)
Morgan: You have an incredible voice.
Osbourne: It was absolutely amazing.
Mandel: Wow!
Harland: She is a great singer but she sounds a lot like other great singers.
Chances of getting through: Great

Steve Retchless (pole dancer)
Morgan: X This isn’t what guys should do.
Osbourne: It was an amazing thing to watch.
Mandel: You were great.
Harland: Amazingly agile and strong, he belongs somewhere, just not here.
Chances of getting through: Slim

Smage Bros. Riding Show (bike stunt team)
Morgan: Unbelievable!
Osbourne: This is a family affair.
Mandel: It was scary! It was thrilling!
Harland: Maybe I am just jaded but it just isn’t that exciting to me. Am I missing something?
Chances of getting through: Great

Professor Splash (water stunt man)
Morgan: I kinda feel like we’ve seen the best of the splash man.
Osbourne: Quite fantastic
Mandel: I don’t know if it’s as amazing as jumping into 12 inches of water.
Harland: Same act over and over again, it’s dangerous but it’s the same.
Chances of getting through: Slim

Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. (singer)
Morgan: I don’t think that was your best performance.
Osbourne: It makes me feel so good every time I hear you sing.
Mandel: You deserve to be in the finals.
Harland: It’s fascinating to watch this great voice come out of this man.
Chances of getting through: Good

Silhouettes (interpretive dance group)
Morgan: I thought it was very good, not great.
Osbourne: I do think tonight’s performance wasn’t as strong.
Mandel: They did phenomenal.
Harland: By far the best act of the night but not their best.
Chances of getting through: Great

It gets tougher and tougher to pick only five AGT semi-final acts to move on to the finals. The most likely of the 12 to move forward might be Silhouettes, Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr., Anna Graceman, Smage Bros. Riding Show and Landon Swank. Stay tuned!

Comments:

  1. I agree, this semifinal was as tough as any I can recall. 5 go through, so acts 6 and 7 go home, when in previous seasons they’d have breezed through.

    I have 3 ” sure things”…..

    1. Landon Swank
    2. Anna Graceman
    3. Smage Bros

    then 2 from a group of 4. The 2 jokers being Kinetic king and professor splash, two acts that seem to get judged on a different scale. A scale dependent on audience bias.

    So the 2nd group of 4, has the 2 special interest cases………plus 2 more

    4. Kinetic king
    5. Landau Eugene Murphy
    6. Professor splash
    7. Snap boogie

    Top 3, in for sure……then 2 from the 2nd group.

    I like betting on sports, and I used to enjoy wagering on these types of peripheral events, which is why I got started handicapping them. The top 3 are an easy wager. Then I’d probably lean towards Landau and the king.

    Doc
  2. Smalls put his hands together and closed his eyes bfore one of the stunts and I think he was praying if you ask me. They say a family that prays together stays together. I think because the stunts are so fast it’s hard to appreciate how much they are really doing but I could definitely see this act being in Vegas.
