America’s Got Talent Results Semifinals Week 1

What’s up guys, it’s Adam, back for tonight’s live America’s Got Talent first semi-final cut of season 10. Tonight, no matter how things go, I am probably going to be losing a favorite of mine, and with only 5 acts moving on of 11, things could get crazy. It is entirely possible that a deserving act will get robbed, and with Howie Mandel judging with us tonight, things are only heading downhill. In the meantime, let me know NOW down in the comments who your predicted final 5 are. Oh, and hurry up, AGT goes live in only 8 minutes!

And we are live!

Kicking off tonight is a performance from The Illusionist! They start off with a guy doing an incredible shadow performance involving making images with his hands. After, a bunch of guys come on stage and do a trick with a guy getting impaled. I have seen that trick done before, but still well done guys, I enjoyed it!

Next is a quick recap of last night’s show. Basically filler. After, we find out the bottom 3 is… Samantha Johnson, Benton Blount and The CraigLewis Band. So much for Howard’s prediction about the CL Band. Surprise surprise, all of them are singers! I will be so happy if the top 3 are all non-singers. Sadz though, cause I know this means Mountain Faith Band is going home. I’m pulling for Benton making it, just so the judges are left with egg on their face when they have to pick between their favorites.

When we get back from a product-placement segment involving doughnuts, Taylor Williamson has taken over Nick’s hosting job! To be honest, I would be okay if this became permanent; Taylor is just hysterical. Before the commercial though, we get a cool trick from another member of the Illusionist done on Mel B. Apparently Mel is afraid of rats, and the magician made one appear! Great trick!

Time for the result. Called first is Derek Hughes, Mountain Faith Band and Metal Mulisha Fitz Fodder. Wait, what…? Did Mountain Faith Band pull a miracle? Surprisingly it is Derek Hughes moving on… WHAT?! Oz, Siro-A or Drew, one of these is going to get shut out of the finals. Shocker! How in the heck do so many people like Derek though, I can’t stand him…

Wow, time for the next result. Called forward is Arielle Baril, Ira and Oz. This could go so wrong if one of these doesn’t move on. Thankfully, it goes right, and Oz is moving on! Whew! I was scared Arielle was going to shut him out. How was she not even in the top 7 though?

HOLD THE PHONE! That means the last result is between Siro-A and Drew Lynch! I hope Siro-A moves on, but I will be floored that Drew was not even in the top 7!

After the commercial, Benton has a 4 point lead in the poll. After, we get another performance from The Illusionist, where the magician frees himself from a straight-jacket while on fire. It happened super quickly though, so I felt like it kinda had a lot of buildup for little payoff. Eh, I’m not sure how I really felt about it.

Time to find out who made it between Drew and Siro-A. Aw from his face, Drew knows. Moving on is…. Drew Lynch. WHAT?! SIRO-A SHUT OUT OF THE FINALE!!!!???? I am shocked, no, floored is a better word. I’m sorry guys, I had my money on Siro-A winning. How did this even happen? Can I go ahead and say the most shocking result of AGT? How was Siro-A not even in the top 7?! All I got left to win is Paul and Piff. I’ll be voting for both next week. I am honestly just… something. How could this happen?!

After, we get some filler from The Illusionist involving Howie getting diapers dumped on him. I think this was my favorite part of the season, to be honest. HOW WAS SIRO-A NOT IN THE TOP 7?!?!

Ugh, I’ll save my rant for next week’s rankings (look out for that on Monday/Tuesday. Trust me, it is going to be a…, loud one). Now time to get on with the product-placement save. Getting the save is obviously Benton Blount.

So now it is down to Samantha Johnson and The CL Band. The judges will pick between them. I’d go with Samantha.

Heidi votes to save Samantha

Mel B votes to save Samantha

Howard votes to save The CraigLewis Band

Howie votes to save The CraigLewis Band!

Deadlock! The act moving on based on America’s votes is…. Siro-A The CraigLewis Band. I can only sum up tonight’s show with the word “ugh.”

Top 5 Acts Moving On
1- Mountain Faith Band Derek Hughes
2- Oz Pearlman
3- Siro-A Drew Lynch
4- Benton Blount
5-The CraigLewis Band
