‘America’s Got Talent’ scandal: 4 acts that don’t deserve to be in finals

After “America’s Got Talent” crowned the Top 12 of Season 9 last week, a scandal erupted within the “AGT” community over the many popular performers who were cruelly cut — like Smoothini and Wendy Liebman — in favor of several mediocre acts that many fans believe shouldn’t be there.

Based on Gold Derby’s exclusive racetrack odds, the following four acts don’t deserve to be in the finals. Do you agree or disagree with these overall findings? Be sure to sound off in the comments section below.

At 100/1 odds, Mara Justine by far has the worst odds to win the season according to your predictions. This 12-year-old singer has coasted by so far on her shy cuteness, but it’ll be a major shocker if she’s voted through next week, especially with such impressive competition from the other singers.

Mike Super was a wild card act brought back into the competition by judge Howie Mandel, so he’s already been eliminated once. Perhaps that’s why our odds-makers rank this supernaturalist magician dead last in our predictions center for who’ll advance to the next round. Not even Desmond can save him now.

AcroArmy may have wowed the Radio City Music Hall crowd, but they failed to rally up much support amongst our predictors. The acrobatic act has lowly 18/1 odds to win, and even worse odds of 33/1 to advance to the next round. Those two combined predictions should ensure that these acrobats tumble right out of the game.

Strongman Christian Stoinev was called a frontrunner by judge Howard Stern not too long ago, but in the weeks since he’s become nothing more than a human sidekick to his showdog Scooby. If Christian can reclaim his early glory he may be able to overcome his 12/1 winning odds, but is it too late?
