And so, dear friends, it has come to this… the Top 10.
The best of the best, the elite… the 10 most stellar acts to grace the AGT stage this season.
The cream has risen to the top, and we’re left with 4 singing acts, 3 dance teams, a blacklight act, a magician, and a BMX group.
Which four make it to the Finals? Away we go…
Miami All-Stars – Um.. what was that? They go from being from a spot-on, hot-as-hell Latin dance troupe and morph into a silly, high school cheer squad. Gimme a B! Gimme a Y! Gimme an E! 1-866-60-AGT-01
Lys Agnes – Good gravy– I can’t believe it, but I’m going to agree with Sharon and (gasp!) Howie. Her low was too low, and the end was too screechy. The middle was good, though… so there’s that. 1-866-60-AGT-02
Landon Swank – But what happened to the fish? Sorry, but I’m not buying his claim that it went perfectly; I would think the fish was supposed to end up in the fish tank. Otherwise, why do the trick? Is it too obvious to say, ‘something’s fishy’? 1-866-60-AGT-03
Anna Graceman – Sure, it started a little ‘off’, but she picked it up and finished huge. So far, she’s the best of the night, but the night is still very young. 1-866-60-AGT-04
Silhouettes – These guys and gals are simply mesmerizing. Of all the acts I’ve seen this season, they are the only (ONLY!) one that I would seriously travel to Vegas, just to see. Amazing and stunning. I could watch them all night… for hours. 1-866-60-AGT-05
Smage Bros. Riding Shows – I was actually prepared not to like these guys that much– not sure how they’d step it up more than the semi-finals, but… dammit, they did. It seemed much more intense and dangerous. Which makes it that much better. And you gotta love it when a dude gets a BMX to the head. 1-866-60-AGT-06
POPLYFE – I’ll be honest– it was not as good as last week; it seemed a little rushed and a little sloppy in parts. But (BUT!) they’re still a pretty peppy pop party. I’m not sure they’ll win the whole thing (see “Silhouettes”, above, and Landau, below), but they at least deserve a shot. 1-866-60-AGT-07
West Springfield Dance Team – Sorry, but I’m so ‘over’ these guys. It’s the Same. Exact. Thing. each and every week. There are never any new moves, and spooky makeup can only take you so far… which in this case is honestly not very far. 1-866-60-AGT-08
Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. – If nothing else, he deserves a trip to the Finals just because of Nick’s nasty little bit of trickery last week, making it seem like he didn’t make it. But there is something else… dude can sing his skinny little butt off. It’s gonna come down to him and Silhouettes. Yikes. 1-866-60-AGT-09
Team iLuminate – I love them, and in any other year, they’d walk away with this thing, easy. Right now I have them third… but it’s up to the good voters of America. 1-866-60-AGT-10
My pick for the top 4:
Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr.
So who gets your vote? We’ll find out tomorrow night.
