It has been quite a ride but we have finally arrived at the end. Here is my final prediction of the season. I hope you all will enjoy it!
6th- Miguel Dakota – I still don’t know why the judges saved him when they could have saved Emil and Dariel. Regardless of my bitterness about him still being here I will try to be fair in my assessment. That said, he was totally outperformed this week. Every other act gave me some reason as to why they should win, all except for Miguel. Miguel did basically what he has done in the past and it was, in my opinion, totally underwhelming. If there is any justice in the world, he will not crack the top 3.
5th- Quintavious Johnson – Quintavious is such a favorite and he definitely delivered tonight. He was really great on both his songs (that ad lib in his first song was a total fail though for me), but I think 5th place is where he will stand. Yes he was great, but I just think there are better acts deserving of the million. Nothing against the kid, he gave it his all and has nothing to be ashamed of (well maybe except for that indulgent ad lib), but I just feel this is as far as he will go.
4th- Sons of Serendip – Wow, these guys surprised me. Of all the acts going into this, these guys really stepped it up with two magnificent performances. I actually really loved these guys and went back and watched both of their performances over again. Here is the thing, they did everything they could, but I don’t see them breaking the inevitable top 3. They were really good, but the top 3 are incredible. They have a shot of breaking top 3, we will just have to see tonight.
Note: The top 3 for me are equally tied. I predict one of them will end up winning, but putting them in a ranking is ridiculous as they are just evenly matched.
1st- AcroArmy – How do I describe the performance they put on? Simple: pure adrenaline. When these guys perform, I hold my breath because it just looks so amazing. The one draw back with them I can think of, and this is just me really nit picking, is every time they perform it just is so adrenaline packed, that a full show from them really would be almost to much for me. Regardless, these guys are incredible and definitely deserve to win and in my opinion, have an excellent shot of doing just that.
1st- Emily West – Emily was incredible tonight. Taking on Chandelier again was risky, because while yes it was her best performance on the show, it is also in my opinion one of the most difficult songs to perform. Emily may have struggled with her first song, but with an incredible second performance while in the pimp spot makes me think she also has an incredible shot of winning.
1st- Mat Franco – Mat always puts on such a great show when he performs. If I could pick one of my top 3 acts to win, it would be Mat, because I always find myself looking forward to his act. Mat is one of the greatest magicians to be on the show and in my opinion, deserves to win.
Who Should Win- Mat Franco, Emily West or AcroArmy
Who Will Win- Mat Franco, Emily West, or AcroArmy. This one is just way to impossible to call. If any one of these three ends up winning the whole thing, they will be incredibly worthy of it. Gun to my head, I think AcroArmy will end up taking it, but I really want it to be Emily or Mat.
