America’s Got Talent 2011 – Quarterfinals Part 2

The second week of the America’s Got Talent Quarter finals brought 12 acts that were mostly mediocre, even downright awful.

There were a few bright spots: Diva-style singer, Daniel Joseph Baker had some solid chops, The Smage Brothers motorcycle act was scary, but in a good way, Stephen Retchless’s pole dance was a study in strength and beauty, and I have to give it up to the Silhouettes. The troupe’s patriotic pandering was rather, erm, shameless (shadows of the twin towers? REALLY? YOU’RE GOING THERE!?!), but the act was beautifully put together.

Video and Recap after the jump.
