Sharon Osbourne says the Final Four are fighting for both their careers and one million dollars tonight, and the judges expect million dollar performances!
Prince Poppycock is the first to take the stage for his final live performance of the season.Â He will sing an opera classic about the rescue of a princess.Â Poppycock is in a suit of armor adorned with brilliant plumes of red feathers.Â Just before the end, Piers hits his buzzer!Â Poppycock gets a standing ovation from the crowd and Sharon, but Piers says he thinks he’s blown it.Â He goes on to say it wasn’t fun and he was taking himself too seriously. Sharon calls Piers selfish for doing that on the final. Howie questions if America will embrace something more serious as well.
Michael Grimm, the soulful singer from southern Mississippi, is up next.Â Michael hits the stage all dapper looking and croons When a Man Loves a Woman. It’s a bluesy version and he connects with the audience too – another standing ovation!Â Sharon hollers his name, saying she’s got goosebumps going!Â She adds that Ozzy, her husband, has bet $100 that he’ll win. She calls the performance perfect and amazing. Howie deems it his best performance ever on the show, and predicts Ozzy will be $100 richer tomorrow night.Â Piers says he’s looking for a million dollar talent tonight, and Michael is that!
Jackie Evancho sings next. She, once again, delivers a beautiful, stunning rendition of a very difficult opera song.Â The judges and crowd all stand to applaud as she finishes!Â Howie tells her it was heavenlyÂ – what he’d expect to hear when he ‘sees the light’! Piers says Ozzy Osbourne just lost $100, because he’s never seen a raw talent like Jackie’s – it’s perfection!Â Sharon calls her an angel.
At this point, some of the eliminated contestants perform a variety act! Studio One Young Beast Society, Michael Grasso, Michael and Ashleigh, Haspop, Harmonica Pierre, and Anna and Patryk all participate!Â Goo Goo Dolls, David Copperfield, Usher, and Cirque de Soleil will perform on tomorrow night’s results show.
Fighting Gravity are the last of the four acts to perform tonight.Â They note how difficult it is to stage a new show of this magnitude with only a week to practice.Â That said, they do an awesome job! The audience leaps to its feet!Â Piers calls it a brilliantly clever act, and says it will be in Vegas no matter what happens on the show. He adds that they made one little mistake, however, which means Jackie is still the front-runner to him. Sharon tells them they did just great, and it’s not up to Piers!Â Howie says they’re what the show is all about, and urges people to vote!
