America's Got Talent: Season 7, Episode 16 :: Quarter-Finals Round 2

Jul 11, 2012

This week on America’s Got Talent (Season 7, Episode 16), the quarter-finals continue as the next 12 acts perform live on the AGT stage in New York. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Quarter-finals Round 2,” which aired on July 10, 2012, to discover what you missed.

The Performances

The second round of the quarter-finals continue with a fresh wave of varying talents. First up was Lion Dance Me, a group of boys who performed dangerous dance tricks in giant Chinese lion costumes. Howard got bored with the repetition of their performances and suggested that they switch up their costumes.

Next, Turf took to the stage alone, contorting his body into all kinds of creepy angles. All the judges enjoyed his performance, but Sharon suggested that he incorporate more dance moves with his contortion since the dance category is so strong this year.

The All Ways are a good band, but they blew it tonight with their horrible song choice. They try to present themselves as a rock and roll band, but instead they performed a pop melody.

The judges thought that Hawley Magic was too cheesy and old school with their movements and poses, but on the upside, their magic trick was phenomenal.

The Lisa Clark Dancers made Howie and Howard bicker. Howie buzzed them, complaining that their performance was no better than watching his daughters’ dance recitals. While Howard believed that they're incredibly talented. Sharon was the voice of reason: the song choice and choreography was simply “too cute” for a competition of this caliber.

The Aurora Light Painters used to stun the audience and the judges with their originality, but it seems that they peaked in Vegas. They bombed this week with their lack of story and lengthy transitions.

Danielle Stallings was forgettable in Howard's eyes, until tonight that is. She sang "It Will Rain" by Bruno Mars and won him over.

Acrobats Donovan & Rebecca stunned the judges yet again with the strength and diversity that they bring to every performance. They offer something new every time, which shows the mark of good performers.

Big Barry sparked a heated debate between Howard and Howie. Howie believes that Big Barry could be a terrific novelty act in Vegas. Meanwhile, Howard thinks Big Barry is a terrible singer (which he is) and should never have been given a spot in New York over other talented people like Mary Joyner.

Comedian Tom Cotter had everyone laughing as he performed a bit about the strange phrases we use in the English language. The judges loved his original jokes. Howard said he’s the guy to beat.

Ben Blaque stepped it up by shooting 4 crossbows at once at the balloons around his assistant. Howard thinks he’s a great act, while Howie is less convinced.

Finally, Tim Hockenberry closed the show with a unique rendition of Katy Perry’s "Part of Me". Howie and Sharon loved his performance and dubbed him a possible winner of the entire competition. Meanwhile, Howard thought this performance was a step down for Tim. But that will be up to America to decide.
