The last 12 acts played a game of Russian Roulette this week as they found out whether they garnered enough votes to move on to the semifinals. Did your favorite act bit the bullet?
The July 25 results episode of America’s Got Talent got down to the nitty gritty, revealing which contestants will continue through to the semifinals. So did America embrace its artistic side with acts like William Close — who Howie Mandel crowned the winner last night — and Joe Castillo, the sand artist? How about Horse? Did viewers find themselves loving his nut-crushing antics?
Howie thinks he found a winner in William, the larger-than-life musician. But which acts are giving him a run for his money?
The July 24 episode of America’s Got Talent found the final 12 acts taking to the stage hoping to prove to America that they were worth voting for to send through to the semifinals. (For the record, most were “painfully entertaining.”) Horse demonstrated his superhuman powers, while Eric Dittelman used his mind-reading powers to take a jab at Howie Mandel. Other acts, like Lindsay Norton, delivered stellar dance moves, while Sebastien “El Charro de Oro” supplied the charm.
12 acts. 90 seconds. 1 chance. Which acts proved to be ‘Toxic” on stage — and which ones hit their sweet spot?
On the July 17 episode, as with every telecast, America’s Got Talent plastered “Go Big, or Go Home” across the screen, but who really brought the “chills and the thrills and the spills?” (Thank you, Howard Stern) On a night that mattered most, the 12 acts that took the stage caught fire but quickly fizzled. The buzz and talent was there, but most failed to live up to their full potential.
Another batch of hopefuls went under the knife as America voted three more acts through to the semifinals. Did your favorite get sliced?
On the July 11 results episode, America’s Got Talent revealed the next three acts to move on to semifinals. Did Hawley Magic’s magic enough to put a spell on America? Was Turf’s body bending convincing enough? And did Ben Blaque’s target practice pierce viewers into voting? In addition to nail-biting results, Gavin DeGraw performed his current single “Sweet” with such swagger and ease — while Traces stunned with acrobatic stunts through stacked hoops and see-saws.
12 more acts took to the stage to wow America with jaw-dropping magic, heart-stopping body bending and hilariously inappropriate comedy.
On the July 10 episode of America’s Got Talent, a dozen more acts attempted (sometimes quite horribly) to impress the panel and the crowd with their talent. Some flipped a pop song on its head or pulled out all the stops to reach new heights in spectacle, while others played it too safe, just when their lives depended on it the most. Find out how your favorite act performed after the jump.
The first 12 acts gave it their all last night with dazzling performances, but America has spoken. Did your favorite act make the cut?
On the July 3 results episode, America’s Got Talent revealed the first four acts to move on to the next stage of the competition. Did America’s little sweetheart Lil Starr prove to be a worthy contender for the top prize? How about the father-daughter duo Shanice and Maurice Hayes? Also, dont’ forget that will.i.am debuted a new song called “This is Love” featuring Eva Simons, and Cirque du Soliel brought the house down with tennis balls, mystical fairies and tremendously dangerous balancing.
‘AGT’ kicked off its first live show with Howie’s blackhead surgery, the revelation that Sharon calls Ozzie ‘Daddy,’ and 12 acts vying for America’s vote.
(I was so enthralled with the first half hour of completely ridiculous filler that I almost forgot what tonight is actually about.)
On the July 2 episode — dubbed the first round of the quarter-finals — America’s Got Talent skyrocketed with two and a half hours at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Twelve acts took to the electrically bright stage to prove to America, by way of an eclectic judging panel, that they were worthy of $1 million and the chance to headline a show in Las Vegas. (Now, that’s some major do-re-me). How did your favorite act fair when the heat was turned up? Check out the sweet-n-sour (no, not chicken) recap after the jump.
The first Vegas round proved to be too much for some Americans, as singers, performers and stunt men took to the stage to impress — but ended up crashing and burning.
On the June 25 episode of America’s Got Talent, hundreds of teary-eyed contestants were thrust into the limelight. Under the shimmering lights of Las Vegas, the judges had to whittle the talent pool from to a meager 48. As the night progressed, Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne had their work cut out for them as truly talented — and quite unique — acts morphed into sweaty balls of nerves up on stage. (Even one of my personal faves just did not deliver.) Find out which acts stumbled, fumbled, and forgot the words in this easy-to-use recap!
Without a doubt, Twiggy is the best animal act to score an audition slot this season — which says more about the show than it does this incredibly adorable rodent.
On the June 12 episode, America’s Got Talent headed south to Tampa, Fla., to continue the search for a million dollar act! Did Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Howard Stern find it? Well, they certainly found something worth talking about. As the talent was mostly lackluster, there were a few shining gems in the pile of rehashed overachievers who proved to not only bore but willed Howard to want to jump from a window. (Ouch.)
Have you ever wondered what Marilyn would sound like as an opera singer? ‘AGT’ has your answer.
The June 5 episode of America’s Got Talent brought the team back to Austin, and boy were they in for quite a surprise! There was the usual artistic light show acts and guitar-toting singers, but none of those were the cream of the crop. Andrew De Leon — who is clearly inspired by Marilyn Manson — was, perhaps, the biggest surprise yet of the season. But that’s not all! With the assistance of a pole-dancing Nick Cannon, the panel uncovered several rare gems that should do well in this competition.
Let’s break down the top five acts of the night, shall we?
Did ‘AGT’ witness the rise of the next Michael? Meet the winner of one of the best auditions in TV history!
The May 29 episode of America’s Got Talent found Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel in St. Louis, where they found an incredibly talented six-year-old performer who just might be the best thing to happen to prime time television (but more on him later). With the assistance of Nick Cannon, viewers were also treated to eye-stretching talent that ran the gamut from breathtaking antics to life-threatening shenanigans.
Adam’s new ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ music video has us going all ‘1984’ up in here!
The pop beats and clever hook are set to a futuristic setting as Adam Lambert portrays an inmate in a high-tech society where he is just a face in the crowd. From the first images of a colorless world to the prisoners popping little blue and white pills, Adam is sending a pretty strong message about individuality and keeping an open mind.
What was YOUR favorite act of the night? See our top three picks!
Talent scorched the Tampa Bay stage May 28 as Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Howard Stern hoped to find a million-dollar act. Legions of hopefuls showcased a wide range of talents — hoop dancing, off-key singing, and more — with the hope of getting that life-changing “Yes” to Las Vegas. In the hour-long segment, however, only a handful proved to have the talent to take them far.
Justin Bieber has a big heart to go along with his big career.
On the Ellen Degeneres Show on May 24, Justin Bieber made a special appearance via video to invite tornado survivor Stephanie Decker to his Believe tour. Stephanie and her family suffered an unimaginable tragedy in March as a monster tornado whipped their Indiana house to shreds. As the rubble climbed higher and higher, she became trapped underneath. She had lost both legs — while her two children miraculously went unscathed. After the doctor told her it would be a year before she could walk again, she took her first steps recently after only two months of recovery.
Britney & Demi stepped out in the scorching Austin sun May 24 for the first round of ‘X Factor’ auditions.
As the competition is about to heat up, Britney Spears looked stunning in a bright pink mini, while fellow judge Demi Lovato sauntered from her car in a neon yellow dress. The unlikely duo have joined The X Factor‘s judging panel alongside former American Idol staple Simon Cowell and Epic Records exec L.A. Reid. The formal announcement came earlier this month during the Fox upfront in New York City.
