Tonight the top four acts from this season of America’s Got Talent will give the performance of their lives in the final. Poplyfe, The Silhouettes, Team iLuminate, and Landau Eugene Murphy Jr, are all ready to impress America, the live audience, and judges Sharon Osbourne, Piers Morgan, and Howie Mandel. Keep reading for the highlights…
Nick Cannon starts the show with a video montage looking back on this season of America’s Got Talent. Tonight the battle for one million dollars and the chance to headline at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas is on and America will vote to determine the outcome. The results show is on earlier than usual tomorrow night – 8 PM EST.
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. is first to perform tonight. He’s gone from washing cars to living the American dream. Landau sings My Way by Frank Sinatra. He is extremely confident in a dashing white suit and sings brilliantly. The crowd comes to their feet at the end. Piers exclaims, “What a moment!” He admires how he saved Sinatra’s biggest song for the end. He calls it a million dollar performance. Sharon tells Landau he gave her goosebumps – it was perfectly sung and he saved the best for last. Howie says there is a real good chance that he just sealed the deal!
Nick announces that Landau will perform a duet with the legendary Patti LaBelle on tomorrow night’s results show.
Team iLuminate is up next. They have come a very long way with an idea born in an apartment in Brooklyn. Their performance is energetic, electrifying, and mesmerizing. The crowd once again roars as they come to their feet. Sharon says they are exactly the reason why their show is different from any other talent show – it’s ground-breaking what they do! She calls the act brilliant. Howie says it was fascinating, brilliant, and original. Howie enthuses, “What a night!” He hopes America sees how spectacular this is. Piers tells them they are what this country is all about – smart young people with great ideas – exactly what America needs. He says it was superb.
Tomorrow night Team iLuminate will perform with Cobra Starship.
Poplyfe is up next. Kehlani the singer says Dylan Wiggins is the guy in the band who arranges all the music. Seemingly unafraid of anything, tonight they are doing Queen tunes. It’s a good show, but it isn’t at the level of the first two performances. Howie is concerned that some of the notes were a little off. Piers thought some of the singing was a bit shaky, but says they’re very talented performers. Sharon tells Kehlani she has star quality, so even if the singing wasn’t great tonight she can bank that.
Poplyfe will perform with Stevie Wonder on tomorrow night’s results show.
Last but not least are The Silhouettes. Set to What a Wonderful World, the performance is inspirational and unique as always. Piers says they saved the best until last like Landau. Sharon says it was beautiful and encourages everyone to vote. Howie says they ended with the word ‘love’ and they loved it!
