The final set of the original 48 America's Got Talent performers gave us a mix of really good and really NOT good performances last night. After a very slow first hour, the show ended with one of the most awe inspiring routines in memory from Team iLuminate.
We grade it, and others, below.
Kinetic King - The installation may have taken two days and nights for set-up, but I didn't get how being a kinetic artist would be the winner of the show. He did have unnecessary models and immediately the whole thing didn't work. I felt bad for him, but the fact that he still talked to Nick was admirable. My Grade: D+.
Zuma Zuma - The Kenyans were happy to fulfill their dreams and were willing to add elements to their performance, but they were totally different from their last two performances, including their better costumes. Their climbing skills were cool but they spent too much time transitioning between tricks while the others bounced in the background. My Grade: B+.
