America's Got Talent: Season 7, Episode 11 and 12 :: Vegas Week

Jun 26, 2012

This week on America’s Got Talent (Season 7, Episode 11 and 12), the contestants compete during Vegas week for one of the 48 spots in the live New York auditions. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Vegas Week,” which aired on June 25, 2012, to discover what you missed.

Las Vegas Week Begins

Las Vegas week kicked off with a big twist. The judges divided all the contestants into 2 groups: the judges favorites, who got to compete first; and the standbys, who will only get to compete if some of the judges favorites get eliminated. A few acts didn’t make either list, including William Close, who played the Earth Harp; David Smith, the human cannonball; and Olate Dogs. All of these acts, along with a few others, believed they were being sent home immediately. Fortunately, the judges felt that these three acts didn’t need to show their stuff a second time, and were sent immediately through to the New York auditions.

Choke

With only 45 spots remaining, the contestants competed within their categories: Danger, Singers, Dance Groups, Performance Acts and Opera Singers. With the stress of the auditions running high, many of the early favorites choked under the pressure, including Mary Joyner and opera singer Andrew De Leon. We also saw two big wipe outs during the auditions by the American BMX Stunt Team and the 787 Crew.

Vegas Week Continues

The magicians kicked off the second episode of Vegas week. Psychic magician Eric Dittelman set the bar high when he asked Sharon to wirte down the name of her first crush on a piece of paper. To avoid any chance of him having cheated and done his research ahead of time, she made up a name - Robin. Well, guess what. He got it right. Next came the vocal groups, including father-daughter duo, Jorge and Alexa, who were eliminated for being cute, but not a million dollar act.

More Eliminations

The competition was stiff in the comedian category. Six auditioned but only two made it through, including 23-year-old Jacob Williams with his dry humor, and Tom Cotter with his low-brow wit. Next, the kids took to the stage. The Untouchables lucked out and were sorted into the kids round instead of the dancers category. However, they still could have held their own in either category. The male singers took to the stage next. Timothy Michael Poe, who won people's hearts for his touching war story in his audition, was eliminated. Apparently, all his claims of being injured by a grenade in Afghanistan were false. But none of that was mentioned on the show.  

On Thursday, the standby group will compete for the few remaining spots in the Top 48!

You've put off studying for that big geometry quiz for weeks and now the test is tomorrow! What do you do now?
  • Forget about the quiz. It's too late to worry about it now.
  • Read a couple of chapters of the textbook until you start getting panicky and the room starts to spin. Then distract yourself with video games until the panic subsides.
  • Call your favorite bookworm and ask him/her to settle in for a major cramming session with you.
  • Stay awake all night worrying about the quiz and praying for a miracle.
