The sixth and last semifinal group hears its fate tonight.
Without further ado, away we go…
Group #1: Kruti Dance Academy (Bollywood Dance Troupe), Rudi Macaggi (Balancing Acrobat), Michael Grasso (Magician/Illusionist), Swing Shift Sideshow (Sideshow Performers)
This has got to (easily) be Michael Grasso. He was the only one there who showed any semblance of talent.
Semi-finalist #1: Michael Grasso
Interlude #1: Criss Angel. Dude’s crazy. See? That, folks, is what’s called showmanship.
Group #2: RNG (Dance Troupe), The Hot Shot Tap Dancers (Tap Dancing Group), Anna and Patryk (Ballroom Dancers)
Again, this seems like a no-brainer. The only question is whether America was as skeeved out with Anna and Patryk and Howie was. I’m thinkin’ “not”.
Semi-finalist #2: Anna and Patryk
Group #3: CJ Dippa (Rapper), Connor Doran (Indoor Kite Flyer)
Well, if there’s any justice in the world, there isn’t even a question with this one. CJ Dippa? Later, homey!
Semi-finalist #3: Connor Doran
Interlude #2: Leann RImes. Gotta be honest– I’ve never though of her as a sex symbol before, and while I still don’t, I’m closer than I have been before.
Group #4: Harmonica Pierre (Harmonica Musician), Doogie Horner (Standup Comedian), Michael and Ashleigh (Aerialists)
If Doogie gets through, I’m filing a formal complaint with the Department of Good Taste. Otherwise I’d be fine with either of them… though I think it’ll be Michael & Ashleigh.
Semi-finalist #4: Michael & Ashleigh
