Americas Got Talent – Semi-Final Pt One Results

The America’s Got Talent results began with a total fake-out tonight. Future Funk, ArcAttack, Dan Sperry and Kristina Young took the stage first. Who made it through out of this group? NOBODY! SHOCKER.

Next, it was rock climbers, AscenDance vs the kiddie ballroom dancers Anna & Patryk. And of course, Anna & Patrick make it through

Singers, Michael Grimm, Prince Poppycock and Taylor Mathews were next and the judges were beside themselves. How could any of this talented group be eliminated? (Actually, Taylor was pretty mediocre. Poppycock was interesting, at least, Michael Grimm is talented).

SURPRISE AGAIN. All three make it through. Except, with the first group all getting the axe, it was pretty obvious that at least two of the three would advance.

So, that’s 4 of the 5 acts that will advance to the Top 10. No surprises there, really.

The 5th act to go through is chosen by the judges from the 5th and 6th place finishers. The three acts left were fire magician, Antonio Restivo, sister kiddie singers Christina and Ali, and kite flyer, Connor Doran. Keep in mind that the sisters have cystic fibrosis and Connor is autistic–it helps explain the what-the-f*ckery that happened next.

Antonio Restivo, who was clearly talented, and the most suitable of the three to take his act to Vegas, was ELIMINATED straight away.  The look on his face when he left the stage was priceless–he was pissed.

The two acts left got through on their sob stories plain and simple. The sister singers were amateurish and mediocre. And I’m sorry but I still do not get flipping KITE FLYING as a stage act.

I wish they would have just changed the rules on the spot and brought Antonio back. But can you imagine the outcry? Actually, I don’t have to imagine. After I said I “hated” the cystic fibrosis girls on twitter a few weeks ago, I was twitter bombed by a bunch of humorless peeps from the CF community. Yeah. One of them called me a f****** fa***tt, completely oblivious to the inherent contradiction therein…

But I digress!  The judges had to choose between two acts that should have been going home. Piers expressed his disappointment that Antonio was eliminated before he reluctantly chose  Christina and Ali.  Howie picked Connor  Doran the kite guy. And after some hemming and hawing, Sharon chose Christina and Ali.

So…yeah. Uhm. Christina and Ali for the win?

So, here are the acts moving on to the Top 10.  The 2nd part of the semi-finals take place next week.

Anna & Patryk
Michael Grimm
Prince Poppycock
