Ouch! Four acts advanced last night on America's Got Talent, but none came from the group of Wild Cards selected the evening before by Howie Mandell. There's always next year, buddy...
Eliminations Part 1 - Shevonne, Yellow Design Stunt Team, West Springfield Dance Team - WSDT made it through. I hope that the team's choreographer doesn't kill them trying to create a more dynamic routine. It made me wonder if WSDT was ranked fourth last week and the judges went with the fifth-ranked Beth Ann Robinson.
Eliminations Part 2 - Avery and the Calico Hearts, Charles Peachock, Those Funny Little People, The Kinetic King - I love Avery and the Calico Hearts, but it wasn't their night. They need a manager so they can end up on a children’s show. Charles messed up his final juggling sequence and blew it.
Those Funny Little People raised the entertainment level, but it's still mascots dancing around. The Kinetic King finally had a routine that worked perfectly, but did people forget him because he performed first? Fortunately, no, viewers rewarded a trick that went well.Eliminations Part 3 - Landon Swank, Seth Grabel - Landon's trick was much more dynamic than Seth. Seth wasted too much time with the ring and the visuals. There is something endearing about Landon and his fiancé that makes me want to support him, whereas Seth was too cocky for his own good. Landon made it through and I'm sure that the vote wasn't even close.
Eliminations Part 4 - Summerwind Skippers , The Fiddleheads, J Chris Newberg - Outside of the lazy fire work and the group stumble in the beginning, Summerwind did a decent job. I liked The Fiddleheads' lead vocalist, but the pitch of the song was a bit off. Chris had a strong routine, but I wonder if people not used to watching roasts took offense to the routine. J Chris Newberg was eliminated, proving that it's really hard for comedians to really get a stronghold on this show.
So, it came down to The Fiddleheads versus the Summerwind Skippers. Piers continued his bias for his picks and voted for Summerwind Skippers, whie Howie went with The Fiddleheads. Sharon, who was clearly upset with Piers, sided with the Summerwind Skippers.
