There was no March Madness-type upset on America's Got Talent last night, as the four acts favored throughout the season advanced to the final four. Did you agree with the results? We run them down below...
Eliminations Part 1 - Smage Bros. Riding Shows, Team iLuminate - Smage continued to go up the ramp of difficulty, but they were a bit sloppy last night. As long as they had a partner who continued to risk his life for the team. Team iLuminate, on the other hand, has been consistently growing and evolving their shapes of dance from their first performance. It was pretty bad when the Smage brothers pointed to iLumuinate as the group that would make it through; they knew that iLuminate was the team to beat.Eliminations Part 2 - Miami All-Stars, Lys Agnes - Miami All-Stars lucked out their first time by advancing from the judges' choice and took that to their advantage doing a swing/jive-inspired performance during the semifinals. The theme was their downfall here. Lys Agnes was growing each performance until she took the risk of singing in her lower register. Sadly, both of their journeys ended tonight, showing that their gambles didn't pay off.
Eliminations Part 3 - Poplyfe, Landon Swank - Poplyfe is the last band left and they are younger than 17. They managed to conquer contemporary artists as well as legends like the Beatles and Michael Jackson. Landon has been providing some of the most visually stunning magic performances. His contemporary style of magic can usher in a new generation of magicians. Though both had strong nights, the act advancing was Poplyfe.
Eliminations Part 4 - Silhouettes, West Springfield Dance Team - West Springfield Dance Team seems like they have been tapped of ideas. Was doing the dark routines over and over starting to grow predictable? Yes. The Silhouettes, on the other had have attempted to change their shapes and images, but realized that going with a positive, all-American idea was getting them further. The Silhouettes made it to the finals as high pitched screams filled the room. This year wasn't as successful for the YouTube acts as West Springfield was the last one standing and they needed the wild card round to get them this far.
Eliminations Part 5- Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., Anna Graceman - Both Landau and Anna have been strong competitors during the whole competition. Anna tended to have a weaker lower register and it showed in "True Colors" but her vocal runs looked effortless. Black Sinatra made a minor change to Dean Martin, but his velvet voice was smooth all night. Landau advanced, but Anna took the loss in stride.
So, which act will win it all next week? The final four are:
- Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.
- Team iLuminate
