Rebecca Black Performs, Doesn't Suck on America's Got Talent

Rebecca Black Performs, Doesn't Suck on America's Got Talent

It was, perhaps, the most surprising result on America's Got Talent last night: Rebecca Black took the stage and put on a perfectly decent performance.

Granted, the entire mash-up of "Friday" and "My Moment" lasted for barely more than a minute. But, hey, hopefully it was enough to silence those jerks at Black's former school, as the singer recently admitted she was yanked from classes due to bullying.

America's Got Talent Results: No Surprises

There were eliminations on America's Got Talent last night, but no surprises. Find out below who went home and who will perform again...

Eliminations Part 1 - Powerhouse and Gymkana - If I wanted to watch a good Glee-style singing group... I'd watch Glee. Powerhouse wasn't the best group and there were too many voices muffling the routine. Gymkana, on the other hand, had a strong routine and advanced through.

America's Got Talent Review: Searching for Jackie Evancho

Is there another Jackie Evancho out there? That's what America's Got Talent was hoping for last night, as it gave us a special performance show based on YouTube submissions...

TNC Elite - The choice of a slowed down version of "I Got a Feeling" was weird. I hated the costumes and the fact that there were unnecessary backup dancers. Like normal clogging teams, they were sharp in synchronization, formations, or timing. The solo section without music was the best part, but it defeated the reason for them using contemporary music. My Grade: C

America's Got Talent Results: Who Advanced?

America's Got Talent offered a few eliminated surprises this week. But will they last? I have a feeling at least two will get Wild Carded.

Eliminations Part 1 - Frank Miles, Avery & the Calico Hearts, Taylor Davis, Fatally Unique - Avery & the Calico Hearts held the strongest performance of the first six performers, but they wavered against the second half of the show. Frank missed the doughnut and Taylor missed several keys, so they were obviously going to be eliminated in this group.

After a night of mediocre performances Tuesday, the preview for last night clearly set the five performers up even before the eliminations took place.

There was nothing surprising about this week's America's Got Talent results except for the fact that America didn’t mind the more flamboyant efforts.

America's Got Talent Review: We're Live!

After months of auditions, we were finally down to the live quarterfinals on America's Got Talent. The first 12 contestants hit the stage last night, with jitters as high and song choices poor. Let's grade each hopeful, shall we?

Miami All-Stars - After sailing through to Hollywood, the troupe hit a roadblock: their music wasn't cleared. They had to change their routine in just a few hours. It started with six couples and I hoped it remained there. It looked like a confusing army of dance when everyone formed a rectangle. There were some dancers in the back that were behind a few steps. The group solved my gripe when the dancers moved to the sides and the women and men had their own solos. Their dancing and tricks were amazing; I'm a huge fan of the pot-stir and that one woman was stirring for a long time. My Grade: A-.
