Zap2it caught up with the Top 10 “America’s Got Talent” finalists and with Fighting Gravity, it came up that they have dropped out of Virginia Tech in order to concentrate on the show — but of course they are still prioritizing Va Tech’s football showdown with Boise State Monday night (Sept. 6).
“That’s on the priority list for sure. Not gonna miss that. It’s 1) Boise State-Tech game, 2) finish our routine for next week, 3) laundry,” Fighting Gravity jokes.
But what we didn’t know is that the game has sparked a friendly rivalry with sister singers Christina & Ali.
“Christina & Ali, the singers, their cousin plays for Boise State, so it’s a fun rivalry,” the boys tell us, while Christina and Ali start chanting Boise State! Boise State! Boise State!
When asked if they will be able to watch the game with the boys from Fighting Gravity, younger sister Christina says emphatically, “No! That would be too hard,” but older sister Ali says, “We might just do it so we can rub it in their faces when Boise wins.”
And despite the amazing experience of being on “America’s Got Talent,” the Virginia Tech drop-outs of Fighting Gravity do plan to return to school.
“I think we all pretty much plan on heading back. This has been a great experience but I’m not sure if the celebrity life is for all of us. We’re definitely going to ride this ride as far as it will take us, but we all plan on heading back.” says one member.
“America’s Got Talent” Top 10 performances air Tuesday, Sept. 7 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
