Which wild card 'AGT' acts are going to semis?
Posted August 22, 2012
America's Got Talent's results show moved four wild card acts into the semifinals.
"It's gonna be intense," said host Nick Cannon. He introduced judges Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne (who gave her signature heart gesture with her hands) and Howard Stern (who tried to make a more sweeping heart gesture).
"We're going to have to work on that," Nick told him.
First group on stage: Sebastien, Bandbaz Brothers and Ben Blaque. Advancing: Sebastien "El Charro De Oro."
Said the mariachi kid, "It feels real good to let America know that even though I'm a small package like Jackie Evancho, I'm able to have a big voice like she does."
During a break in the results news, the cast of the Broadway show Bring It On performed.
Second group on stage: Horse, Jake Wesley Rogers and Andrew De Leon. Advancing: Andrew De Leon. "If Marilyn Manson and Adam Lambert had a child, and you were a big fan of Bocelli, it would be you," said Howie.
"Thank you," said Andrew.
Third group: Todd Oliver, Spencer Horsman and Cristin Sandu. Advancing: Todd Oliver and his dog Irving.
And before the final group took the stage, Owl City performed Good Time with Carly Rae Jepsen.
Last group: Would it be Lindsey Norton, All That! or Jarrett & Raja moving on in the competition? Sent home first: Jarrett & Raja, news that surprised the crowd and the judges. "This is a crime!" said Howard.
Lindsey Norton and All That! were left. Nick Cannon said only "a half a percent" separated the two in the voting. But it was up to the judges to decide who would move through. Howard voted for All That! and Howie voted for Lindsey. Sharon wrestled with it, saying "How do you choose between your children?" Finally, she made her pick. Advancing: All That!
