Hang in there, folks– we’re almost at the end. And hopefully by the end of the night we’ll be done with Retchless and Kinetic King forever (though probably not).
Away we go…
Group One: Silhouettes, Gymkana, Steven Retchless
Could it be? Might my prophecy/hope be coming true just five minutes in? Surely Silhouettes isn’t going home, and a “two-of-you-but-not-the-third” is even more unlikely. Goodbye Pole-Boy!
Semi-finalist #1: Silhouettes
Group Two: Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., Anna Graceman
Does anyone really think only one of these two is going to the finals? What planet were you born on? Hold up! Nick, don’t do this to me! (Aw… you schmuck. You had me going there for a second.)
Semi-finalists #2 and #3: Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., Anna Graceman
Group Three: Professor Splash, Fatally Unique, Summerwind Skippers, Landon Swank
I had Langdon– based solely on the fact that the other three were either compete mess-ups or just so-so… BOOM! 4-for-4 so far, people! (C’mon, Smage Bros!)
Semi-finalist #3: Landon Swank
Group Four: The Kinetic King, Snap Boogie, Smage Bros. Riding Shows
If there’s any hope for a Kinetic King-free world, he needs to get the boot right off the bat here; otherwise I have a hard time picturing the judges not picking him for the finals (though I’ll go to my grave wondering why). WOOT! Bye-bye, King! As much as I love Snap, I think this has gotta go to the Smage Boys. Sharon goes first, and gives Snap the nod. Piers goes for Smage. And so it’s up to Howie– who gives Smage the tenth and last spot in the finals.
Semi-finalist #4: Smage Bros. Riding Shows
…and with that, ol’ popcollin snags a perfect 5-for-5. *pats back
So your AGT Season 6 Finalists are:
Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr.
Smage Bros. Riding Shows
West Springfield Dance Team
4 singing acts, 3 dance teams, a blacklight act, a magician, and a BMX group. Compare that with last year’s Top 10 (5 singing acts, 2 dance teams, a blacklight act, a magician, and a BMX guy). Geez, stuck in a rut, AGT?
Next week, THE FINALS!
