We’re back in Hollywood, with the second wave of twelve quarter-finalists on America’s Got Talent‘s on NBC! Nick Cannon says that it’s time to find out which acts will advance to the semi-finals based on America’s vote. Only four will go through – three by votes and the fourth as chosen by the judges. Nick introduces judges Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel, and Piers Morgan and checks on the nervous acts waiting backstage.Â Cirque du Soleil and Train perform tonight as the result are revealed. Read on to learn who moves forward to the semi-finals…
Nick Cannon asks Mona Sampath Dance Company, Ronith, and AscenDance to join him onstage.Â After America’s vote, the act going forward is AscenDance!Â Piers will be relieved that Ronith ‘will not be back’, as am I! Sharon says America got it so right!Â Ascendance is really unique and I can’t wait to see what they do in the next round!
Cirque du Soleil takes to the stage to perform live next.Â They’re acrobatic, colorful warriors – amazing!
Joining Nick onstage for the next round of results are Alice Tan Ridley, Ironhorse, and Cheer SF.Â Nick asks Howie who he thinks America chose – he says Alice. Nick announces that the act advancing to the semi-finals is…Alice Tan Ridley!Â Well, that was no surprise and definitely the right choice by America!
Nick continues on with the results. He asks Michael Grimm, Lil Chris, and The Strong Man to come out and stand on the stage. Nick asks Sharon to weigh in on who will be going home. Sharon says that Ozzy told her Michael Grimm is going to stay – she’ll back her husband! Nick says that the act going one step closer to the million dollars and headline act in Vegas is…Michael Grimm! Wow, America gets it right again! He says this means everything to him and to his family – emotional moment!
Singing Hey Soul Sister, Train takes the stage to perform live in Hollywood! One of the guys in the band looks just like Howie, so jokes ensue.
Finally it’s time to bring out the last three acts – Hannibal Means, Wreckless, and Antonio Restivo.Â The judges will decide between two acts, so one must go home. Nick announces that the act leaving based on America’s votes is…Hannibal Means.Â Nick tells Hannibal he will never forget him, to which Hannibal replies that he will never forget himself! So, it’s down to Antonio Restivo the fiery, emotional magician, and Wreckless, the superb dance act that practices wherever they can with no studio, and no mirrors.
The judges deliberate. Nick starts with Howie – he says he has to go with his gut. Howie votes for Antonio.Â Piers notes it’s incredibly difficult to choose – he goes with Wreckless.Â Sharon is the tie-breaker. She says both thoroughly entertained her last night, but she chooses Antonio Resitvo – he goes through to the semi-finals! I would have chosen the dancers, since there are already a lot of magic acts in Vegas, but, hey, Antonio is good!
