Did you watch America’s Got Talent: The Champions week 2 last night? The second set of 10 acts out of 50 competed. Two acts advanced to the finals. However, the winning acts were not determined by your votes. One was chosen by a Golden Buzzer (Heidi Klum this week) and the other by a studio audience made up of “superfans from all 50 states.”
While Heidi chose the talented and entertaining knife throwing act Deadly Games, as her Golden Buzzer. The Superfans chose…get ready for it…the winner of of Spain’s Got Talent 2016, Cristina Ramos. Apparently, her videos were popular on Youtube back when she competed. But I found her act–switching abruptly from opera to rock in the middle of Bohemian Rhapsody–kind of cheesy.
Simon didn’t hide his surprise. He said talent got Cristina through. But he DIDN’T say the super fans got it right. Simon would probably have prefered either Darci Lynne (2nd place) or Courtney Hadwin (3rd place) to have advanced to the finals, considering both are signed to his companies.
Because all seven episodes of Champions have been taped ahead of time, here’s an opportunity to actually vote for your favorites.
