America's Got Talent: Season 6, Episode 28 :: Semi-finals Round 2

Aug 31, 2011

It’s the "year of dance," according to Howie Mandel, as talented dance groups dominate season 6 of America’s Got Talent. Round 2 of the semi-finals (episode 28) kicked off on August 30, 2011.

The Performances

First up was The Kinetic King. His obstacle course of falling domino-style objects included candies, rulers and ping pong balls, and it sped faster than ever before. Sharon loved the speed, while Piers found it less climactic. Next, Fatally Unique got down and dirty, showing Sharon that this year is all about "dark dancing."

Landon Swank impressed the judges with his risky performance involving explosives and sheer luck. However, Gymkana made a devastating mistake when one gymnast tripped as he jumped through the ring of fire, pulling it down on top of him. 

Summerwind Skippers made two big mistakes that Piers had no trouble spotting. He admitted that they are one of his favorite acts, but he thinks their mistakes will cost them a spot in the finals. Snap Boogie’s routine was a little too cheesy compared to his usual performances. Sharon thinks he should've stuck to what he does best.

Anna Graceman put her own spin on the rock song Home Sweet Home. Piers said her performance was the best of the night. Steven Retchless, however, didn’t earn the same praise from Piers. He doesn’t believe male pole dancing is a million dollar act. Sharon and Howie disagreed.

Smage Bros. Riding Shows performed some amazing stunts with their dirt bikes. They even hopped over seven family members, including Grandma Smage! Professor Splash didn’t make the same impact on the judges this week. While he did jump from 70 feet, he landed in five feet of water instead of his usual 12 inches.

Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. performed Frank Sinatra’s I’ve Got the World by a String. Sharon believes that he’ll definitely have a place in the final. The Silhouettes closed the show with a performance that was a little lacklustre. The judges agreed that they’re amazing, but the act wasn’t as amazing as previous nights.

Our Predictions

It’s hard to say who will take the five available spots in the final, but we’ll still wager a guess. Anna Graceman for sure, along with Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., Landon Swank, The Silhouettes, and maybe Smage Bros. Riding Shows.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
