They compete at regional and national competitions, my studio and I do as well, and they do place mostly top 3, if not first. I’ve seen them compete multiple times and I would like to point out that it is WAY more exciting and suspenseful in person than on tv. As for those of you saying they repeat moves, doesn’t everyone? If you compare 2 dances of the same type, you will most likely find repetitive moves. It is super hard to come up with new moves in dances, let alone come up with new acrobatics or the crazy and dangerous lifts and tricks and stunts they do and things of the sort. They really are amazing. People need to respect these YOUNG girls for the work they do. They are not typical cheerleaders or dancers. I guarantee there are very, VERY few teams who can do what these girls do. I’ve met a few of the girls and not only are they talented, they are friendly, respectful, and wonderful girls. They work harder than so many, and are brought down because of their age. They are Vegas material. I don’t believe Cami or Jimmy are. I wish they got more credit for the things they do for their team. And their parents, supportive like nothing I have ever seen. People need to be less closed-minded and figure out that maybe they aren’t always right. Keep your heads up, girls, and keep going strong! ♥

I live in Farmington, mo where these girls are from. I am sad to see there dreams crushed. I do believe that these girls had what it took to win and they got shafted. They are more talented than some that still stand upon that stage. and some say maybe they are not ready for a act in vegas. but they where ready for the money that could of been used for there college. so to say they should not win because of their age and vegas are small minded ppl. for ppl that say that, you are a bigot of age.

I completely agree with this article! All 12 acts were fun to watch. However Innovative Force had me on the edge of my seat with every performance. I have followed dance for years and have yet to see any cheerleading acts take girls from the age of 8 to 18 and combine dance, acrobatics and cheerleading to this level. My hat is off to them. In closing I believe they are a inspiration to all children that have a dream. They were 1 of only few acts that that didn’t present a sad story to grab sympathy votes from America. . I would certainly buy a ticket for my whole family to see them perform.

Innovative Force? Seriously? They’re just a bunch of cheerleaders who do some dance. Hasn’t anyone ever gone to a cheerleading competition? My daughter did competitive cheerleading for 6 years and these kind of routines are done at all the competitions. These moves are done by many of the competitive squads!

Catapult Entertainment was wonderful. The fact that they got voted off is amazing and cements my argument that AGT proves America does have talent but America has no taste.Jimmy Rose, I’m sure a nice guy, should never have made it this far. As usual another very irritating talent show voted on by the tasteless American public.

I’m not at all ticked about innovative force. Great, but not top 6 great. The Kristef Brothers are the ones who should have gone in, over Jimmy Rose.

I think Chicago Boyz, Innovative Force, Branden James, Kristef Brothers, D’Angelo & Amanda and Catapult Entertainment were great. I don’t think Cami Bradley, Taylor Williamson (boring) and Jimmy Rose were as good as the forementioned. I think part of this show is rigged.

Twitter followers (in thousands):

1) Collins Key = 57.6K
2) Taylor Williamson = 34.8K
3) Jimmy Rose = 11.8K
4) Cami Bradley = 8.6K
5) Kenichi Ebina = 8.1K
6) Forte = 5.3K

Based on Twitter followers alone, Justin Bieb… I mean, Collins Key seems to be the likely winner with his so called “Keypers” fans, lol! He has almost 10x’s more fans than the last finalist.

There were many disappointing eliminations – Chicago Boys, illusion group (their name escapes me), the young dancers. It always seems the singers get voted through and sometimes should not.

Confused by the comparison of Innovative Force vs. Cami? This wasn’t between them and her. They just happened to be paired together for the elimination process.. If you are going to make comparisons then you must compare them to ALL finalists. It was sad to see Innovative Force go but Cami definitely deserved her spot. I, however, could think of at least one other finalist I would have liked to see go.

3 of the 6 in the Finals are all SINGERS.

American Idol is jealous.

Prediction: Another SINGER wins America’s Got Talent this season… few years later, America’s Got Talent changes it’s name to America’s Got Voices!

I admit they are great, but do you honestly think they would have been a good fit for a vegas act? 26 school age girls quitting school and moving out to Vegas, making their parents and families move to Vegas with them? I know if my daughter was a member of the group, I would be so proud of their accomplishments, but very thankful that winning a show like this didn’t ruin their life. They are too young for a vegas act. Most of the families probably wouldn’t have even moved and you would no longer have an act. Plus their last performance was too much like a recent group performance on SYTYCD. Yes, they put their own spin on it, but I was disappointed that the concept was the same.

Hannah, you hit the nail on the head. Vegas isn’t interested in 8-12 year olds and I would bet that even if they are on the slate for the live show, they don’t do it because of what you said…quitting school & being on the road.
They couldn’t even get thru 3 shows without repeating tricks….they have nothing original or innovative. Howie didn’t even realize that they’d done that same spinning trick in their first performance and just last week they did it with just one instead of 3. If you go to youtube, you’ll also see they did the same human ladder thing they did in performance 3 well over a year ago. This week’s performance was their weakest yet.
I have to agree with Howie’s cheerleader reference too. The little dance they combine with the cheerleading stunts would still be considered tricks by judges in the dance competition circuit. Fouettes & falling on the floor does not make it ‘dance’ and honestly, that’s all I saw.

First let me start by saying that Innovative Force had a great run on the show.
In same ways I agree with the above poster but in other ways I do not.
This team actually competes in dance competitions and usually places top 5 with routines similar to this.
However, in their defense it has to be hard to combine dance, tumbling and their tricks into 90 seconds! Something is going to be lacking.
They are very talented and I’m sure hard workers. What they do is actually a mix of acrobatics, cheerleading and sports acrobatics with their own creative spin.
They are amazing at coming up with clever ways to get in and out of their group tricks.
They showed the viewers the good side of dance and acrobatics such teamwork and support from their coaches unlike what you see from Abby Lee on Dance Moms who tears the kids down and shows favorites.
Everybody in America has different tastes. So while you may enjoy Innovative Force believe it or not others may actually enjoy Cami or one of the other acts more. Everyone in the top 12 were amazing! The thing about AGT is that you will have various acts competing against each other. Singers, Dancers, Acrobatics, Comedians, Jugglers, Danger acts and more. You never know what you will see. Different acts appeal to different audiences and it stinks that they all have to compete against each other even though they may be nothing alike.
On So You Think You Can Dance(all dancers), American Idol or The Voice(all singers) compete against others in that specific area.

As for the comment about them doing the human ladder thing for years who cares.
Maybe it is a team or crowd favorite. If you had a move that only you could do and was a crowd pleaser wouldn’t you make room for it in your routine?
Yes they may have had that particular move in their routines for years but they had never done it before on AGT. I don’t think the millions of views cared how long they have done it.

That being said I do have to agree with the above poster as far as Innovative Force repeating tricks.
When I watch this show as each act moves on in the competition I expect to see something new, something different, something harder, something that makes me want to keep voting for them.
As Roberta said above, Innovative Force repeated many of their tricks from week to week.
We know you can do a basket toss they were in every routine.
If you are going to do baskets in each of your routines make them different. Harder. Something that the judges haven’t already seen you do.
I would have thought a good plan would be to come up with new ideas each week and not to repeat something that you have already done.
As far as the routine that was called ‘sloppy’ and compared to ‘cheerleading’ with 13 basket tosses yes it will be compared to a cheerleading routine to the untrained eye.

Nothing against cheerleaders but I do not think they could do these routines.
Yes, I have seen many cheerleaders do some of these tricks however, there are also tricks I highly doubt they could do. But, there is actually a studio right down the road from where Innovative Force trains that does the same type of tricks, is very comparable but yet doesn’t get nearly the amount of appreciation or support as they should.

By no means is this post bashing anyone so please do not take it that way.

The headlining Vegas act is only 1 time, just to clarify. It’s not like they have to move there and do it for a living
