Last week, voters impressed the judges on America’s Got Talent by choosing some of the most original acts of the season. Now that the first three spots in the finals are filled (William Close, Tom Cotter and Joe Castillo), it’s time to learn who will round out this exclusive group of semifinalists.
Tuesday night’s episode of America’s Got Talent was definitely impressive, which is why it’s sad to think that many of these talented individuals will be headed home after tonight.
First up: Shanice & Maurice, Lightwire Theater and All That! The judges were in love with Lightwire Theater and it appears that America was as well. Once again, America votes for versatility, giving Lightwire Theater a head start on making the finals.
Joining Lightwire Theater will be either Sebastian El Charro, Jacob Williams or David Garibaldi and his CMYKs. If the voting is consistent with last week, David and his CMYKs will be continuing on. After the usual long pause, Nick Cannon announces that yes, David Garibaldi and his CMYKs are one step closer to the finals.
Snapple Cameo gave the opportunity to bring back an old favorite, which is why master illusionist Nate Burton is back for more! Following a couple of entertaining but farely common tricks, Nate takes on his most dangerous trick: the microwave of death! And out of the microwave pops Usher! After a quick costume change, Usher jumps back in the microwave and is replaced again by Nate Burton.
Haunted Boy Heroes began rocking out at 8 years old, so at 12, they are now old pros. They’re bringing out their rebel side with a cover of We’re Not Gonna Take It. And just when we’re beginning to despair at the thought of listening to these guys for over two minutes, we get a cameo from Twisted Sister’s very own Dee Snider. He gives his young proteges a hand, showing the audience that he’s still a legitimate rock star after all these years.
Time for more results! Taking the stage are two animal acts (Olate Dogs and Clint Cavallo) and All Wheel Sports, an act that doesn’t really fall into any one category. Continuing on in the quest for one million dollars? None other than Olate Dogs! Sharon is (predictably) thrilled and she shows it by jumping up and down like a crazy woman. Can’t blame her — Olate Dogs are talented and oh-so-adorable!
Finally, we get to learn the name of act number four. The Untouchables, Magic of Puck and Tim Hockenberry are all together on stage. Howie’s pretty bummed, because he loves all three. This one’s a bit of a toss-up, but the winning vote ultimately goes to the Untouchables!
The hot act of the night is Train with their single Drive By. Pat Monahan’s voice sounds a bit off tonight, but his performance certainly is energetic! And Sharon’s certainly enjoying the music — a quick shot shows her grooving to the beat. Following the performance, we learn that Howard is a huge fan of Train. Who knew?
The four finalists are David Garibaldi and his CMYKs, Olate Dogs, The Untouchables and Lightwire Theater. The first spot goes to The Untouchables! We’re thrilled but also a bit surprised. The Untouchables must have a considerable fan base. The cute kids are joined by even cuter dogs…that’s right, Olate Dogs are through!
Unfortunately, that leaves the judges to decide between two of the most unique groups America’s Got Talent has ever seen. How are the judges supposed to decide?! Sharon thinks that having to choose between these acts is a travesty, but she ultimately goes with Lightwire. Howie chooses David Garibaldi and his CMYKs, leaving the tiebreaker role to Howard. And that means we get a long-winded speech from self-proclaimed America’s judge. He loves watching painters in the park which is why he’s selecting David Garibaldi and his CMYKs.
We’re bound to see an excellent final round! Stay tuned next Wednesday for a fantastic show!
