Tuesday and Wednesday night, 12 more acts performed on stage and 6 are moving on to the semi finals. This is my review on the last performance.
Flip was brought back to the live shows as a wild card act. They were eliminated back in the judge cuts round. Don’t get me wrong, they are a strong dance group. But, it wasn’t enough to convince me that they should have their own show in Vegas. No doubt that the appearance on the show will get them somewhere in the future.
Moya Angela dazzled me in the first 2 rounds on the show. I possibly thought she would go far. She performed Whitney Houston’s “I didn’t know my own strength.” While she was good, I didn’t see the same flare from the previous rounds. Mel B said that she’s done better before and I have to agree. It was sad to see her go, I wish the best of luck to her.
Victor Kee is an act I would pay good money to see in Vegas. In 11 seasons of AGT, Victor is probably the best juggler I’ve ever seen. He’s more than a juggler, he’s an artist, performer and entertainer. Every time he performs, he delivers something new, fresh and exciting. I’m very excited for him and to see he’s going to the semi finals. I can’t wait to see what else he has in store. By the way, he had his first mistake on Tuesday night but he was still incredible.
Kadie Lynn took the audience church and is going to the semi finals! Lynn is an outstanding singer and has that country soul that’s only heard of from country super stars. And she’s only 12! She is a rising star and I can’t wait to see what she’ll do in her next performance.
Ryan Stock and AmberLynn is living proof that mistakes do happen during live shows. Their stunt act was something I didn’t want to see at all. When AmberLynn missed the target and shot fire at her husband, I was literally scared for them. Thank goodness Ryan is ok, but I can’t imagine seeing that in the semi finals.
Simon’s golden buzzer act Calysta Bevier sang Sara Bareilles‘ “Brave.” She was absolutely stunning and perfect. Her performance gave me goosebumps and I couldn’t be more proud of her. She totally deserves to go to the semi finals and I can’t wait to see what she’ll be singing next. The singing competition this year is unbelievable. Each singer on this show has a shot to win. America’s got a hard decision on their hands this year.
Reba McEntire‘s Golden Buzzer choice, contortionist Sofie Dossi delivered another outstanding performance. Every time she takes the stage, I wonder what other new stuff she could do and she just blows me away. Her strength and showmanship compliments her beauty and grace, and she’s only 14! She’s another favorite variety act of mine and I can’t wait to see what she’ll do next. I can see her performing with Cirque Du Soleil in her career.
The Clairvoyants stunned me once again and are heading to the semi finals. The magicians this year are incredible, and the clairvoyants could take this all the way. One things I’ve noticed about the Clairvoyants is that in all of their performances, they don’t let the judges check if they’re hiding anything. Usually magicians let the audience check their props and sleeves so that everything is fair but they haven’t done so. I just find that a little suspicious.
Surprisingly Heidi’s golden buzzer act Sal Valentinetti was in the bottom 3. Thanks to the dunkin’ save, he’s headed to the semi finals. He’s an absolute showman and I like the arrangement he sang of One Direction’s “Story of My Life.” I love the classic songs of Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra and Sal reminds me of them. Like I said, the singing competition is tough this year and it’ll be interesting to see how it will all end.
I was so sad for the duo of Throwings. Their act always gets better and better every time. This time they added strobe lights and Annie recreated the stunt that broke her spine years ago. Talk about so much pressure and putting everything on the line for her. Even though they gave it their all, it wasn’t enough to send them to the semifinals. I enjoyed watching them and wish them the best of luck. I’m going to miss them.
Steven Brundage was the 2nd wild card act of the night and performed another amazing rubik’s cube magic for America. First of all, let me say that I was very disappointed when he was eliminated during judge cuts. I’ve never seen any form of rubik’s cube magic in my life and he is stellar. His performance on Tuesday night was mind blowing again and I’m so happy he’s going to the semi finals. Can’t wait to see what he’ll do next!
Last act of the night was quick change artists, Sos and Victoria. I have to be honest. Their performance was the same old thing and it was quite boring. I mean there’s just so little you can do as quick change artists. I hate to be mean but it’s not a million dollar act. I wish them luck and hopefully they’ll create new innovative ways for their quick change act.
We’ll have to wait a couple more weeks until the last set of 12 acts perform live since the Olympics will be on. Can’t wait!
