“America’s Got Talent” produced the same standard results show Thursday night that they do every week — there were two performances, product placement, and also plenty of Howie Mandel and Piers Morgan one-liners.
Thankfully, America did at least surprise us in one regard — when it came to the results. The following people all are advancing to the semifinals next week.
West Springfield Dance Team – This was a crew that really was the shocker of the night. While they have a creative twist in how they bring in an element of horror films into their routines, Tuesday’s performance was really just style (and “Dark Knight”-style Joker makeup) over substance.
The Kinetic King – The hilarious choice of the night. The guy is such a character that he should be on a sitcom tomorrow, and that’s without even bringing up his actual act. He may not win the competition, but he is at least unique — and the show needs someone like him.
Landon Swank – Finally, a magician advances! He was appropriately placed up against Seth Grabel during the episode, but he was far and away the better choice.
Summerwind Skippers – Did the judges make the right choice? Personally, the Fiddleheads were far more deserving to move on since we haven’t seen anything like them before. This jump-rope team is talented, but they also made a mistake during their performance Tuesday. Plus, at this point there are a good many acts that are in this vein in the competition (even if they dance or do acrobatics rather than jump rope).
Are you happy with America’s voting?
