America's Got Talent: Season 7, Episode 14 :: Quarter-Finals

Jul 03, 2012

This week on America’s Got Talent (Season 7, Episode 14),  the first round of quarter-finals kick off with the first 12 contestants performing live on the AGT stage in New York. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Quarter-finals,” which aired on July 2, 2012, to discover what you missed.

The Quarter-Finals

Fans gathered at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center to watch the first 12 acts perform live for America. The competition is stiff as only 4 will continue onto the semi-finals. While the judges still get to speak their mind, the eliminations are now in America’s hands.

The Performances

First up, The Distinguished Men of Brass did a good job, according to Howie, but they needed to take it beyond just a marching band.

Edon, the 14-year-old singer/piano player, had the crowd on its feet. Howard loved that he’s humble, and not a “show biz kid.” Sharon praised his song choice and noticed that he hit every single note.

Magicians Jarrett & Raja received the worst response from the audience last night. Sharon found their performance cheesy, and their mistakes put a damper on the whole act.

Lil Starr tapped her way into people’s hearts, except for Howard’s, that is. He thinks she’ll be a successful dancer one day, but her act doesn’t belong on the AGT stage.

Todd Oliver added a second dog to his ventriloquism routine, which the judges liked. However, they didn’t find enough humor in his material.

The judges were impressed by how well the American BMX Stunt Team coped with such a confined stage on which to perform their tricks. They’re stepping up their performance all the time.

Australian singer Nikki Jensen has a unique voice, but she was missing the performance quality that the judges look for. Perhaps America will see something in her that the judges didn’t.

The Scott Brothers made their mark with some crazy, memorable dance moves that put them ahead of the competition. The judges believe that they deserve to move onto the semi-finals. Does America agree?

Michael Nejad bombed his performance by turning ordinary objects like baseball bats and shovels into less-than-mediocre instruments. He received three X’s from the judges.

While Howie enjoyed their costumes, he admitted that the 787 Crew performed better in their first two auditions than they did last night. Howard added that they’re becoming very predictable.

Father/daughter duo Shanice & Maurice Hayes sang a beautiful song together that likely secured them a spot in the semi-finals. Although, the judges suggested that they choose a more contemporary song next time.

Last to perform was David Garibaldi and His CMYK. They performed a dance/painting combo that had the judges on their feet. Howard predicted that they will have a seat in the semi-finals. But of course that’s up to you, America!

SAO is one the few animes I've thoroughly enjoyed. It'd make a great book. SAO2?! Well thanks for letting me know.  Don't know how anyone could mistake Kirito for a girl, but that's just me. Is Sinon anything like Asuna?
