NBC is ready to roll out the results of America’s vote as this season of America’s Got Talent reaches crunch time! The Top Ten will be reduced to a Final Four tonight in preparation for next week’s season finale! The results show has judges Sharon Osbourne, Piers Morgan, and Howie Mandel, and Nick Cannon announces that there will be live performances by Sarah McLachlan and the cast of American Idiot! Read on to find out which four acts will feature in the season finale…
As usual, Nick wastes no time in calling the first acts to the stage. Tonight, he asks Michael Grasso and Prince Poppycock to join him front and center.Â Piers is asked to weigh in.Â He is shocked that either of these acts would be sent home.Â Nick announces that the first act going into the final is…Prince Poppycock!Â Wow! Michael Grasso didn’t make it! Surprising, but if anyone could warrant an upset it’s Poppycock.
The cast of the smash hit, Tony award-winning Broadway hit, American Idiot, takes the stage for an edgy live performance!
Nick asks Michael Grimm and Taylor Mathews to join him on the stage. Howie comments that if he could vote, they both would stay. After America’s vote, the act advancing to the final is…Michael Grimm! This was the expected outcome. Michael thanks America, saying he thought he was done when he was called out with Taylor. Piers Morgan tells Michael he has a real shot at winning this!
Grammy award-winning singing/songwriting sensation, Sarah McLachlan, performs live accompanying herself on the piano on the America’s Got Talent stage!
Jeremy van Schoonhoven and Christina and Ali are called out to learn the results of America’s voting.Â Sharon remarks that both of these acts are proof of how the performances improve week after week on the show.Â Nick announces that the act going forward is…neither of them.Â I had a hunch that might be the case. Howie reassures them of how talented they are as young Christina cries.
Jackie Evancho and Anna & Patryk are asked to come join Nick on the stage.Â Piers points out that in his mind, this is the best young singer they’ve ever had, and the best young dancers they’ve ever had! Nick wishes them luck,Â then says America has voted, and the next act going into the final is…Jackie Evancho!Â Anna and Patryk each give Jackie a hug – they can’t have been surprised at this outcome.Â Jackie thanks everyone who voted for her – such a sweetie!
Phenomenal groups Fighting Gravity and Studio One Young Beast Society are the last two acts to join Nick and learn their fate tonight.Â Howie says they both deserve to go through. Nick says the last act going into the finals is…Fighting Gravity!Â Again, the expected outcome, although Studio One Young Beast Society will have a bright future performing – they’re incredible.
Your America’s Got Talent Final Four going into the season finale are: Prince Poppycock, Michael Grimm, Jackie Evancho, and Fighting Gravity!
