Twelve Youtube performers made their best attempts at going viral last night, but only four rose victorious. Did your favorite act deliver a memorable routine?
After America’s finger-dialing votes, America’s Got Talent whittled down the playing field from 12 to four on the Aug. 15 episode. Despite explosive hype surrounding the performances last night, only a handful proved to be able to sustain a certain level of viral marketability. Plus, Karmin — the super hot duo that began as a YouTube cover group — scorched the stage and demonstrated exactly what it means to want the limelight.
Justin Bieber, who recently released a brand new album, aired a clip of his new music video “As Long as You Love Me.” (Lest you forget, his career, too, began on the small screen.) And Randel, a YT comedian, took the stage in a little judging-gouging segment of his own.
In between the musical performances and videos, host Nick Cannon got down to the nitty gritty of delivering the results.
Here’s how it all went down:
Cast in Bronze
7 in Unison
Romeo Dance Cheetah
Acts Moving Forward:
Academy of Villains
The Magic of Puck
As with the previous rounds, the esteemed panel of judges were given the gavel to decide with act would be moving forward to the semifinals and which one was sent to the metaphorical prison sell. It came down between the guitar-strumming Drew Erwin and the bird-flapping Clint Carvalho.
Howard Stern and Sharon Osbourne both voted for Clint, and because it was a two-thirds majority, Howie Mandel was not required to lay out his thoughts. That means Clint will move forward to the next round.
Goodbye, Drew, we hardly knew ye. (Major pouty face.)
So, Hollywoodlifers, what did you think about those results? Did YOUR favorite act make it through?
