America’s Got Talent: Season 7, Episode 26 :: Semi-Finals

This week on America’s Got Talent (Season 7, Episode 26), the first half of the semi-finals kicks off with 12 acts who give it everything they’ve got! Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Semi-finals,” which aired on August 28, 2012, to discover what you missed.

Semi-finals

After a spectacular season of talent, America has narrowed it down to the Top 24 acts. For the next two weeks, these acts will compete in the semi-finals for one of 6 spots in the finals. This week, only three acts will continue on, and it’s up to America to decide who makes the cut.

The Acts

First up, was Andrew de Leon, who hit every note, unlike last week. Sharon’s only suggestion was that he ditch his trademark make-up so that people take him a bit more seriously...says the woman married to Ozzy Osbourne.

The judges loved the talk show format that Todd Oliver brought to his live-puppet ventriloquist act. Howard thought he deserved to go through to the finals.

Donovan and Rebecca brought something fresh yet again, showing off Rebecca’s unbelievable strength. The judges just hoped their performance translated as well on TV as it did on stage.

The judges were split with their opinions of Edon’s song choice - One Direction’s "Beautiful". Sharon loved that it was current, and so did the entire female audience who were chanting his name. Howard, however, was bored.

Howard felt that he may have already seen everything that the Scott Brothers have to offer, even if they are the best dancers of the bunch. Howie thinks they need one memorable move in every performance, like their walking-around-the-hat move from their previous routine.

Dittelman never seizes to amaze the judges with his mind reading act. This time he brought Howard onto the stage and had him add several colors to his self-portrait, knowing exactly which colors Howard would choose.

Turf received a standing ovation from Howie, who dubbed him the best dancer of the bunch. But being a solo dancer may make it hard to stand out in a competition like this.

Bria Kelly sang "Perfect" by Pink. While Sharon loved her song choice and strong voice, she felt that the song required more passion, which Bria didn’t deliver.

Joe Castillo’s art was too similar to last time, at least according to Howard. Howie and Sharon, however, felt that he brings something different to the table every time.

The judges didn’t hide the fact that William Close is by far their favorite contestant. They made comments such as “you are our front runner,” and “you deserve to win.” His originality is so above and beyond the rest of the contestants that he’ll probably have a future in Vegas either way.

Tom Cotter took a risk this week by going on stage empty handed. He asked Howie to pick a topic - college, was his choice - and Tom did a comedy sketch off the top of his head. There’s a true comic genius for you!

The Academy of Villains closed the show with another grand performance. However, the judges were divided on their feedback. Sharon loved them and appreciated the difficulty of choreographing 30 dancers. Howard, however, felt they took a step down this week.

I think she played well as Hermione (You did it right) because when she was sitting at the dinner table as Belle, she just sat there with this scary smirk on her face. Lol  :)
