America’s Got Talent 08/26/09: The Final Five Semi-finalists Are Chosen

August 26, 2009 07:36 PM by Paulene Hinds


Tonight the final five were chosen to advance to the semi-finals in Las Vegas on America’s Got Talent. Who did America vote to go on with the other fifteen acts and was Coney Island Chris saved to perform his sick act one more time? Hopefully America got it right last night when they voted!


Host Nick Cannon invited contestants Drew Stevyns and the EriAm Sisters  to his side. They were the first two acts to find out whether they would be lucky or unlucky tonight. Nick Cannon then announced that Drew Stevyns was going through to Vegas. The EriAm Sisters thanked all of America and as they were about to leave the stage, Nick Cannon said that America loved the EriAm sisters too, so much that they were going through to the next round along with Drew Stevyns.

Nick Cannon asked the African High Flyers, Pam Martin’s Top Dogs and Coney Island’s Chris to step forward. Coney Island Chris was buzzed by all three judges last night, so it seemed as if he would be the one going home tonight. The surprise was that all three acts were going home!


Recycled Percussion, Matt and Anthony and Ishaara were next on the stage to hear the news of their fate. With only one act going through to the next round, Ishaara was definately going through tonight, or were they? No they were not…Recycled Percussion won the coveted spot! Matt and Anthony and Ishaara could hold their heads high as they both brought an awesome flavor to their acts and Ishaara brought Bollywood to Hollywood!

The special guest tonight was the country singing legend, Reba McEntire performing her hit song Consider Me Gone. She is such a beautiful and strong woman and is still the one other coountry artists look up to!


There were only two more spots to advance on America’s Got Talent…who would make it through?  The Lollipop Girls, Mia Boostrom, Barbara Padilla and Erik and Rickie were the final contestants to hear the news tonight. The Lollipop Girls were eliminated, the next spot went to Barbara Padilla and the final spot would be chosen once again by the judges.

David Hasselhoff voted Erik and Rickie through because they are different. Sharon Osbourne voted Mia Boostrom through because she knew how badly Mia wanted to go through and Piers Morgan finalized the vote for Erik and Rickie as he wasn’t impressed with her performance last night.

Next Tuesday night on America’s Got Talent, ten acts of the twenty semi-finalists will perform live in the first semi-final round at 9 PM ET, only on NBC.
