Tonight on NBC is a whole new episode of America’s Got Talent. Tonight is “Wild Card Performance” night where previously voted off contestants have a chance to come back to the show and make it to the “top 24″. Did you see the last week’s episode when the four YouTube acts moved to the semifinals? If you missed it, you can read our full and detailed recap HERE.
Last week various YouTube sensations gave it their best, the last amazing act that was discovered from YouTube on America’s Got Talent in 2010 was Jackie Evancho, Billboard ranked Evancho the #1 Classical Albums Artist of 2011 and I can tell you that there was not another “Jackie” amongst last week’s performances.
There was also a special surprise, double gold medal at the Olympics, Gaby Douglas was on stage. She shared her experience going to London and winning not one medal, but two and she helped Nick with hosting duties throughout the evening.
At the end of last weeks show, four new semi finalists were named; Academy of Villians, Bria Kelly, The Magic of Puck and Clint Carvahlo & His Extreme Parrots.
Tonight some of our favorite eliminated acts return to the stage in the hopes of renewing their America’s Got Talent dream. One of my favorites, Andrew De Leon returns and when he auditioned for AGT it was the first time that he had performed in front of anyone in his life. The 19-year old makeup artist and Marilyn Manson fan gave a stellar performance singing falsetto opera that blew the judges and the audience away.
Tonight’s show includes 12 returning acts selected by the judges: Howard Stern – Ben Blaque, Horse, Spencer Horsman, and Todd Oliver and Irving. Sharon Osbourne- All That!, Bandbaz Brothers, Jake Wesley Rodgers and Lindsey Norton. Howie Mandel – Andrew De Leon, Jarrett & Raja, Sebastian El Charro and Cristin Sandu. The four acts that advance will enter the Semi Finals for a chance to win $1 million.
We will be live blogging America’s Got Talent tonight with all the up-to-the-minute details at 8PM EST so make sure to come back to this spot and watch the show with us. While you wait for the recap hit the comments and let us know what you think of America’s Got Talent Season 7, so far!
