On Tuesday, August 24, 2010, the first 12 semi-finalists battled for a chance to be in the Top 10 on season 5 of "America’s Got Talent." Few of the acts stepped it up to produce the “wow” factor that Howie and America are looking for, yet five of the acts will be voted through to be in the Top Ten acts of season five of “America’s Got Talent.” Read the recap of the first semi-final show at "America’s Got Talent" Semi-Finals Part 1.
Last night Nick Cannon, the host of “America’s Got Talent” announced the 5 top vote getters. I believe this announcement proved that America can get it wrong. It appears to me that Americans have fallen for sob stories over pure, raw talent as the results of the votes. But it really doesn’t matter if I agree or disagree with the results – they are what they are. To see who America voted through to the finals read "America’s Got Talent" Semi-Final Results Part 1.
What about you? Did your favorite act get the ax last night? Or is it yet to be seen if they will kick it up a notch and wow America?
