On Wednesday’s episode of “America’s Got Talent,” five of the dozen acts that took to the stage on Tuesday’s second live quarterfinal were eliminated from the competition. All of those that were axed had been good enough to make it through the audition process and survive the judge cuts phase as well. But they did not win over enough viewers to number among the seven acts that move on to the semi-finals of season 12 of “AGT” in two weeks time.
Those that didn’t make the cut were the multimedia group Front Pictures, dancers Quin and Misha, magician The Sacred Riana, animal act The Savitsky Cats and comedy duo Yumbo Dump. Which of the five acts that was bounced on Wednesday will you miss the most? Read our recaps of their performances and then cast your vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.
Front Pictures: The Wild Card act of the night, these virtual reality artists choreograph intricate stories in front of a high res video screen. This week’s was the tale of a haunted house.
Quin and Misha: These dynamic dancing duo had earned a Golden Buzzer from guest judge Martina McBride. Once again Quin did age-defying moves that had all the judges but Howie Mandel on their feet; he says that if you remove the age factor they’re not worthy of a spot in the next round.
The Sacred Riana: This Indonesian illusionist performed most of her act at the judges table, where she handed Mel B a voodoo doll with her likeness on it.
The Savitsky Cats: These felines starred in “Keeping Up with the Kats,” a spoof of the Kardashian family, and executed a series of hop sequences, balancing walks and hoop jumps. However, in a few instances the cats were more fickle than you’d hope.
Yumbo Dump: This comedy duo from Japan returned with another performance of sound effects using their bellies, much to Simon Cowell‘s dismay. He buzzed them as did Mel B and Heidi Klum; While they redeemed themselves with the first two of those judges by the end of the act, they did not with the home audience.
