This seems like an easier semi-final than the other one, even though only five will go through. Which five will it be? I’m interested to hear your thoughts on this semi-final. Who’s guaranteed to go through, who’s on the edge (and I don’t mean the edge of glory) and who has no chance of making it to the finals?
Already through are:
Lys Agnes – These kind of operatic voices are always popular on America’s Got Talent.
Miami All Stars – Can they keep up the non-stop action for the finals?
PopLyfe – I think Piers Morgan was right about these at the start. The lead singer of PopLyfe is the star and the rest of them are just there to complete an interesting package. But then the lead singer has some awesome vocals.
Team iLuminate – This act gives us an incredible mix of technology and dancing. I just think they are amazing.
West Springfield Dance Team – This team should probably just enjoy their final performance. They’ve been the last one in for too many weeks in a row.
But who will join them? We won’t know until tonight, of course. But something we do know is who the guest judges will be for the rest of the America’[s Got Talent 2011 season.
Nicki Minaj has been confirmed to join French DJ David Guetta and Flo Rida to perform their single Where Them Girls At for the first time together on America’s Got Talent on the results show tomorrow night. At the other end of the spectrum: Britain’s Got Talent finalist (and viral internet hit) Susan Boyle performs You Have To Be There.”
On September 6, AGT winner Michael Grimm will perform Stay With Me Baby, a track from his recently-released album. That week’s results show also boasts two performers from different sides of the spectrum: pop opera group Il Divo performs Wicked Game while rock stars Def Leppard perform one of their classics, Pour Some Sugar On Me.
For the September 14 finale America’s Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho will perform the classic Nessun Dorma. Tony Bennett and Queen Latifah debut their duet of Who Can I Turn To, from Bennett’s upcoming Duets II album, which includes the final recording of Amy Winehouse. Cirque du Soleil, will add the spectacle, with an exclusive performance off their latest production, It’s A Journey Through The World of Cinema.
The semi-finals continue tonight from 9pm on NBC. America’s Got Talent has also been nominated for a Primetime Emmy. The Emmys air September 18th on FOX so watch out to see how the reality TV talent show does.
