Last night, the AGT Top 12 took Radio City Music Hall by storm as they fought for a place in next week’s finale!
Which six acts are one step closer to getting their dream realized? Which fan-favorite acts were sent home in disappointment?
Read on to find out…
Before we got the results, the Muppets took over show! Kermit The Frog assisted Nick with the judges’ introductions (which included cameos from Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and the entire gang)! We also got additional backstage behind the scenes footage. From Sons of Serendip and Emily West’s powerful performances to Howard and Heidi’s visit with Scooby, it was great to hear the judges’ comments once the show went to commercial break!
For the final time this season, America had the power to save an act from elimination! Tonight’s choices were Emil & Dariel, Miguel Dakota and the Sons of Serendip. As America got to work, the three acts joined Nick and Jackie Evancho backstage! Jackie encouraged each of the acts to be confident with their performances.
Up first to hear the news were Emily West and Mara Justine! The seasoned pro beat out the young singer and earned the first spot in the Final Six. Fan favorites AcroArmy and Blue Journey were the next to face the results and I was jumping up-and-down when Nick revealed that AcroArmy moved onto the Finale!
While Howie collaborated with Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and Camilla, Nick checked in with the Snapple Save candidates and turned the show over to AGT’s most recognizable alum: Jackie Evancho. I loved her goose-bump inducing cover of “Think of Me” and I hope both Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sarah Brightman were watching and beaming with delight.
For the first time ever, Heidi Klum and Mel B performed on AGT! However, Miss Piggy joined them for a cheesy cover of “It’s Raining Men.” After the fantasy number, Quintavious Johnson and Christian Stoinev learned their fates. It was decided that Quintavious was going to join the party next week!
Instead of having magicians in this finale, we would only have one! So, the lucky magician representing this category would be Mat Franco!
Heidi kicked off the vote by selecting Miguel Dakota and Scary Spice seconded it. Meanwhile, Howie and Howard chose Emil and Dariel due to talent. With the judges in deadlock, it was up to pick the final act and to my disappointment…they chose an ABYSMAL, AVERAGE COLORADO teen over two of the most talented brothers I have ever seen!
Next week, the Final Six duel for the $1,000,000 prize!
