The standby acts from “Group A” are up for the performance of their lives and there are only 11 spots left! The talent is not going to be allowed to mess up at all. With 28 performers to see, the judges are going to have their hands full trying to get to the right choices. There are many acts that have shown that they have what it takes and they are going to have to try even harder to show the judges that they have what it takes to make it through to the top 48 of America’s Got Talent!
First up to prove that they have what it takes is the Danger Group. They are up for the challenge that lies ahead and the first act is the martial arts act that shows that if one move is miscalculated, then it means trouble. The next act is the knife throwing act that puts everyone on the edge of their seat. The judges tell that they are going to have to make a hard choice. Nick Pike is up and wants to show a dangerous performance that no one has seen before. He enters and Nick Cannon verifies that the glass on the floor. He puts kerosene on the glass and walks over it with a bag over his head while juggling swords on fire. He makes it to the end but is it good enough. Jeremy the cyclist is up and he shows that he has determination and skill as he performs without a mistake.
The kid dancers are up and they are ready to “kick some butt”. The group “Northwest Dance and Acro” give Nick his own uniform and R&G enter first and show that they have skills as a street dancing group with no mistakes in their act. “Northwest Dance and Acro” follow after and they show that they have talent when they entertain with visual effects with their dancing and acrobatics, hence the name, Dance and Acro. But is it good enough to get through to the next round?
Standby vocal groups that include a variety if R&B, Country, and Broadway are ready to perform on stage and all are a little nervous. “New Directions” perform singing an old classic and are a little off tune. Howie asks that they are talented and inspirational, but are they stars? The rest of the vocal groups perform but last for the vocals are Christina and Allie, the cystic fibrosis girls. They want to prove that they have what it takes as they show their talent and love of singing. They perform and Sharon asks them if they can perform Live every week. Pierce says that nothing will stop them from performing Live because they have such devotion and determination.
Novelty Acts are up after the break and the acts are annoying Pierce to the max. First up is thigh painting extraordinare that misses the judges attention to what she painted. The acts get worse and Pierce looses his paitience for the acts. The Card Thower misses the third balloon and get the judges ducking for cover. Ronin the impressionist wants to show that he has talent as an dramatic actor instead of his impressions. Howie laughs at the fact that he has changed the act but tells that Ronin changed his act. Ronin changed the act because Pierce didn’t like it. Pierce tells that Ronin went from terrible to hysterical.
Bands are up and there are many “Strange Familiars” perform singing “Have a Little Faith in Me”. She hits the high notes superbly. Next is Haiti group, “Harmonic” and they perform and sings “You Raise Up” and entertain with their vocals and playing but the singer they pick is not one of the their best. The acts have a variety of singing but the last band to perform in the category are “Airpocalypes” the air-band. The other bands tell that they shouldn’t be in the band category because they are not playing any real instrument. They perform and are quite entertaining despite what the other bands have to say about it.
The final stand-by male singers are ready to perform and they are all nervous and Nate Kenyon is determined not to show nerves. He waits as his competitors perform and they are amazing in their talents. Luigi is next up and tells that he may be the least experienced in the group and performs and he is relaxed and cool. However, off stage he cracks under the pressure. Nate is finally up and has gotten over a lot of his fear. He starts and sings a nice and melodious tune and showcases his talent well.
Decision time and the pressure starts to settle in. Especially for this stand-by group, the choices are a lot harder to make. With only 11 spots to fill and 28 acts performed, the judges make tough decisions and reach their decisions. Danger Acts are up first to get the decision and it is Jeremy the cyclist and the martial arts group get through. R&G get through to Hollywood but “Northwest Dance and Acro” don’t go through. Luigi makes it through to Hollywood. Nate gets through to Hollywood as well. Ronin gets through to Hollywood while the other Novelty acts are denied their spot in Hollywood. Haiti group don’t make it through. “Airpocolypse” makes it through despite the category and the judges tell that they have to change their category. “New Directions” don’t make it through but for Christina and Allie, they make it through to Hollywood. So the top 48 are put together and this is when we separate the best of the best. Tune in next week when the first 12 perform for their spot to go further! Share this article with your friends
