America's Got Talent: Season 7, Episode 24 :: Wild Card Round

Aug 22, 2012

This week on America’s Got Talent (Season 7, Episode 24), 12 eliminated acts return for a chance at redemption on the AGT stage. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Wild Card Round,” which aired on August 21, 2012, to discover what you missed.

This week the judges each picked four eliminated acts to return for a second chance at stardom.

Howard’s Picks

Escape artist Spencer Horseman took the judges' previous comments to heart and made a narrow escape from death by wet cement. The judges loved the added sense of danger.

Todd Oliver improved his ventriloquist jokes by adding a political twist. He kept it simple, and judges couldn’t believe how fast his 90 second act went by. Sharon wanted him to keep going.

Horse dropped the superhero/villain act, and returned to good, old-fashioned being kicked, punched, and hit in the man parts with various objects. Howard couldn’t get enough of him, while Sharon didn’t really know what to say.

Ben Blaque closed the show with his most dangerous stunt yet. Instead of shooting at his assistant, he blindfolded himself and, using the sound of a bell, shot a target which triggered a domino effect and eventually shot an arrow at an apple directly above his head.

Sharon’s Picks

All That! stepped up their clogging routine by adding some fun visual effects on the screen behind them, but Howie still felt that they didn’t do enough to carry on in the competition.

Jake Wesley Rogers gave lots of energy during his performance of Lady Gaga’s "Edge of Glory.' But again, Howie shot down Sharon’s pick by saying that, while he sang really well, this isn’t the year that a singer will win.

The Bandbaz Brothers performed a dangerous stunt that literary killed their grandfather’s cousin while rehearsing it. Even though it could have gone horribly wrong, they managed to pull it off.

Lindsey Norton tried to step it up this week, but being a solo performer makes it hard to add extra oomph. The judges agreed that she did really well, but she has a good chance of being overlooked.

Howie’s Picks

Sebastien “El Charro de Oro” is more than just a singer, according to Howie. He’s a performer. He took a big risk by singing in English, and Howard pointed out that it showed off some weaknesses in his voice. Will that hurt his chances?

Magicians Jarrett & Raja performed an amazing trick that had everyone on their feet - the disappearing piano and pianist in a box. Simple, yet outstanding. They certainly redeemed themselves this week.

After unsuccessfully completing his trick during the quarter-finals, Cristin Sandu was invited back to try again. He got a little farther this week, managing to stand atop the unsteady pile of junk, but he wiped out straight into the fire before the trick was over. Luckily, his body was okay. His ego, however, remains to be seen.

Finally, the most surprising talent of the season, Andrew de Leon, returned after being eliminated during Vegas week. He sang his heart out and received outstanding praise from the judges.
