America's Got Talent Results: And the Finalists Are...

by at . Comments

What five acts advanced to the America's Got Talent finals to take on Poplyfe, West Springfield Dance Team, Team iLuminate, Miami All-Stars and Lys Agnes? Let's find out...

Making the Finals?

Eliminations Part 1: Gymkana, Steven Retchless, The Silhouettes - After Gymkana caught on fire, you knew their chances were over. Steven may have been overshadowed by all the extra dancers and the tension that Piers generated. The Silhouettes may not have been praised by the judges, but they had a creative opening and strong use of colors. It seemed obvious that the Silhouettes would make it through.

Eliminations Part 2: Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., Anna Graceman - Landau has an uplifting nature during his performance, but Piers was disappointed. On the other hand, the judges loved Anna, but I'm not the only person that thought she had pitch issues. Anna Graceman advanced to the finals. In a shocking twist, Nick faked out Landau and he made it in as well.

Eliminations Part 3:  Professor Splash, Fatally Unique, Summerwind Skippers, Landon Swank - Professor Splash got boring as he continued to jump and jump and jump. Fatally Unique was strong, but lost in the shuffle of dance groups. Summerwind Skippers had one too many mistakes and needed to clean up their performances. Landon was the magicians' last hope and the routine was visually strong. Landon Swank survived.

Eliminations Part 4: Smage Bros Riding Shows, Snap Boogie, The Kinetic King - Grandma Smage was the trooper of the night, laying down her body for her grandsons. Kinetic King had an explosive routine, but it was a bit shorter. Snap Boogie had a stronger second half of his routine during the "Boogie Wonderland" section, but his first half was confusing to me. The final person eliminated before the judges' deliberation was The Kinetic King. I'm going to miss his awkward antics.

The final two contestants were down to Smage Brothers and Snap Boogie. Both voiced how happy they were to perform leaving the judges to deliberate. After the commercial break, while Sharon voiced her love for the full Smage Family, she voted for Snap Boogie. Piers changed his vote to Smage Brothers because they were building momentum. Howie was last and he chose Smage Bros because he thought they were more fun to watch.

So, our five contestants to make it to the finals were:

  1. Silhouettes
  2. Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.
  3. Anna Graceman
  4. Landon Swank
  5. Smage Bros Riding Show

I THOUGHT I heard the N word and freaked out. My 15 year old son said, No, he said Nick not the N word. My son is pretty sensitive. I believe him.

Did Landau say "Nigger". Yes he did. Is there any excuse for this,NO. Do I understand it. YES. What do we really know about Landau or any other contestants. Are they screened? Did anyone do a background check on the contestants? Landau was elated to a point that I feel he's never known before. Where he's from the "N" word is a word of affection between friends. I beleive he almost turned WHITE when he relalized what he said. I don't beleive he'll say it again and if forgiveness is what he's seeking, this is one middle class white boy that has no problem giving it. Sing on Landau. We F*&%in love you. OOOOPS!!!

I am asking everybody to boycott America's Got Talent due to what Howie did during the show. When Nick went to his trailer and went in, Howie was naked and they had to block it so the little kids could not see this and even stood in the doorway in front of the camera for America to see. What a prevert. This an out rage, he ought to arrested for displaying hisself in this manner. He is a prevert now and I have lost all respect for the man. They need to kick him off the show for good. I will not watch a show with him in it unless he apologies on America's Got Talent in front of fans. We wonder why God has turned His back on America, shame on you Howie.

The use of the N word to Nick Cannon was a subtle as a brick in a punchbowl. Everyone heard it, and the press swept it under the carpet. That makes it a big deal. All it would take is an apology for using that word in a non racist manner from Landau.

The reason Landau slipped up and said nigger to Nick Cannon was because he and Nick are close friends, and he's comfortable with him. This is the same reason that Nick was able to rig the act for Landau, he does not actually sing he lip syncs. They plan on splitting the money 20/80, with Nick getting the larger sum.

I'm pretty sure he said "Slap Nick upside the head". I had to do a double take when he said it though since it really sounded like the N word.

I can't believe I haven't heard anything about the BIG slip up of Murphy to the host. He turned green when he said the "N" word to him. Not even the big mouths on the View had anything to say about it today. If it had been reversed and a white person said that, it would be ALL over the news. It just shows the mentality.

Murphy Jr. dropped the n word last night and nobody is talking about it! What? Murphy better watch his s**t or he may talk his way out of a million. Also, that magician is a fraud - he sucks! Every one of his shticks is easily explainable! The exploding boxes- were electronically routed...simple and stupid....the fish tank? come on, there'e someone inside the tank base putting their hand up to the glass from the bottom---watch when he pulls his hand down--the timing didn't match between the arm and the hand---whhhaaaaaaeee! A great illusionist makes you scratch your head, not laugh at the obvious! Final Four should be Silhuettes, Landau, Poplyfe and iLumminate! You can take that to the bank!

I feel America's Got Talent has become very racist.. especially with that Nick Cannon as a host.. what is with his handshakes to the blacks all the time, and tonight with Landau what was that all about?? Liked Landau till he said that nig shit tonight. I will not be watching this show again, it's not about talent it's about ratings......!!!!!

Over the seasons of this program, lots of singers with pitch issues or weak tone on some notes have been raved about by the judges. Ana is getting through because she is so young, not because she is an exceptional talent. She is not a strong pianist either for her age. If she were older, she would have never made it. Landau, on the other hand, has a rare vocal instrument, and he has never been "pitchy".
