AGT’s Group 2 Results were not very difficult to ‘call’. (I went 3 for 4.) The reason? There were really only 4 really deserving acts based on their performances a few nights ago. There might have been one or two who did well enough to contend for the last spot…. but even with the varying preferences across America, the elite of this group was pretty obvious.
There’s always a slight chance that one of the favourite will get robbed on Results night. For example, I was holding my breath for Tom Cotter the Comedian, willing him to make it through over a song/dance/magician act. (side note: I love magicians, just not the ones I’ve seen thus far…)
I was also off on my Ben Blaque radar… I thought he would be a shoo-in, but apparently he didn’t thrill America as much as he thrilled me (and Howie).
The 4 Acts that have made through this round…are:
1. Tom Cotter the Comedian
2. Turf the Contortionist/Dancer
3. Tim Hockenberry the Singer
4. Donovan and Rebecca the Acrobatic duo
I will say I was surprised with Donovan and Rebecca beating out Ben Blaque… but again, maybe I was more impressed with his act than the majority of viewers/voters. I was pleased that the judges put them through over the child singer. We don’t need another one of those. Sorry.
I’m happy with the group moving into the next round of competition… it’s surprisingly strong considering the overall weakness of Group 2.
