With only two episodes left, the second round of the semi-finals kicks off with All That! - the all male clogging crew. They stepped it up this week by heeding the judges advice and taking it to the next level. They added fire and water to their show, ramping up the intensity. Unfortunately, Howie still finds them a one-note act.
Sebastien "El Charro De Oro" sang a Spanish opera song this week, which both Howie and Sharon seemed to love. Although Howard kept it straight and admited that, although he's great for a 10-year-old, his voice needs work in the middle range.
Last time, The Magic of Puck's performance was good enough to make it through, although a little underwhelming. This week, he stepped it up a hundred notches by making it a real magic show, complete with a disappearing woman. None of the judges could figure out how he did it. Sharon called his trick flawless.
Clint Carvalho & His Extreme Parrots performed slightly better this week. Although something about his act reminded the judges of an amusement park sideshow or a children's birthday party. Ouch.
Comedian Jacob Williams usually thrives on his awkwardness, but this time he didn't have the material to back him up. His jokes were just okay, and at this point in the competition, okay isn't good enough.
Shaunice and Maurice Hayes chose a great song for their performance this week. Unfortunately, the judges said that Maurice spent too much time in the spotlight. They all agreed that his daughter Shaunice is the real star and that she should be tackling AGT as a solo act.
All Wheel Sports took a risk by performing in the dim lighting and unfortunately it backfired on them. One cyclist wiped out during his landing on the ramp. Howard didn't mind the accident, since accidents do happen in shows. But will America feel the same way?
Tim Hockenberry slowed the night down a little bit with his delicate rendition of "Imagine" by The Beatles. Howard gave him a standing ovation, and all the judges agreed that his technique was fantastic. They just worry that he'll get swallowed up by all the other over the top acts this season like the other singers have already.
Olate Dogs had Sharon singing their praise again after they added a new dog named Bella to their show. All the judges can't get enough of these rescue dogs and literally begged America to vote for them. So vote America! Vote!
Lightwire Theatre stunned the judges once again with their originality. Whether they win AGT or not, the judges are certain theyll end up with their own live show, and Howie recommended that everyone go and see them. He said it's like sitting inside a 3D movie experience. How cool!
Last but not least, David Garibaldi & His CMYK's were feeling New York inspired as they created their amazing art piece of the Statue of Liberty. Howard thinks they'll be one of the three acts to move onto the finals, but it's a tough call. More than three acts deserve a spot.
