Time to find out which four acts advance from the voting to round out the Top 24 semifinalists on “America’s Got Talent” Season 8 and which acts advance as the judges’ choices.
The first act put through is Dave Fenley, which is not a surprise. He did well and has a really interesting voice, plus he’s super likable. The two acts cut when he went through were VSU Gospel Chorale and Selena Mykenzie Gordon.
The next group brought down is 2unique, Sam Johnson, Catapult Entertainment and Melody Caballero. Of course Catapult gets through, then the other three do not. Not a huge surprise either.
The third group is D’Angelo & Amanda and Ruby & Jonas, with D&A advancing and R&J going home. Yeah, that’s right, though we thought maybe R&J would have gotten into the judges’ pick between 4 and 5.
The final group knocks out Sprice right away and leaves it between Duo Resonance and John Wing for the judges’ vote. Heidi votes Duo, Howie votes John, Mel B. votes John and Howard votes John, so John Wing is the fourth act in.
Now we have judges’ wild cards — Heidi chooses Duo Resonance and Mel B. picks Tone the Chiefrocca (lordy), and apparently we’re leaving Howie and Howard’s picks ’til next week. OK, then.
What do you think, “AGT” fans? Did the right acts advance?
