‘AGT’ Live Show #4 Power Rankings
We’re getting down to the wire on America’s Got Talent. Tonight, just five out of 11 acts from last night’s episode will advance to the finals. Let’s take a look at the power rankings to see who’s most to least likely to make it through.
- Zurcaroh: They’ve killed it every single time so far – last night included – and I doubt they’re going to let up now that we’re reaching the end of the competition. I forsee a top 5 finish for Zurcaroh…and maybe even a win.
- Shin Lim: Shin’s act is another that keeps getting better and better as the season has progressed. The “Dream Act” he did last night is his most famous, and despite the alterations required for it to fit AGT he delivered his best performance on the show to date. I’m putting him down as advancing tonight and a safe bet for another top 5 spot in the finals.
- Michael Ketterer: Last night was probably his weakest performance to date, but it was still serviceable and to be honest I have a feeling most of his voters are there more for his story than his talent so I see him moving forward to the finals as well.
- Samuel J. Comroe: This guy also seems to have a lot of support, and for all the pushing of his Tourette’s syndrome backstory in the packages, his fans seem to like him more for his comedy than anything else. I wasn’t expecting him to have such a stand-out night this week, but he did, and for that I think he has a good chance to nab a spot in the final 10.
- Duo Transcend: Another prime example of an act improving with every performance. I know there was a bit of a mixed reaction to the roller-derby portion of the act; some loved the variety, while others accused them of ripping off Billy and Emily England from last season (for the record: they weren’t the first people in the world to do it either). I’m definitely seeing more positivity than backlash, though, so I also think they have a good shot at advancing tonight.
- Amanda Mena: Things get kind of murky from here, because the top 5 acts on this list have been far and away getting the most buzz since last night. However, there will be one other act to escape immediately sent home, and I suppose Amanda is my best guess at the moment, though I really think it could be anyone…save for maybe #11.
- Voices Of Hope: I haven’t heard a lot of buzz about them, but they’re cute kids and the older demographic of this show eats that up so it’s possible they could end up on the bubble.
- Junior New System: They did well last night, but usually the hip-hop groups tend to lose steam in the votes at this point of the competition.
- Us The Duo: I actually thought this was their best showing yet, but it was clear the majority of the judges weren’t feeling it. Audience reaction to these two has always been pretty mixed, so I think the panel’s comments might tip things out of their favor this round.
- Makyala Phillips: She really lost steam this week, and it was clear people were not impressed with her. Being on the bubble back in the quarter-finals doesn’t exactly bode well for her either.
- Front Pictures: As the only wildcard in the semi-finals, Front Pictures came into this episode as underdogs. Unfortunately, they most likely blew their shot by opting to perform an act without the movement and excitement factor viewers were drawn to in the past.
If this list turns out to be accurate, Samuel J. Comroe, Duo Transcend, and Amanda Mena would end up in the Dunkin’ Save. Based on previous weeks, Amanda, being a singer, would win that save, but I feel like the other two probably beat her in audience votes from last night so it could really go any which way. But in the scenario she did get it, I have a feeling the judges would either vote to send Duo Transcend through, or go to deadlock and Samuel would get through via last night’s votes.
America’s Got Talent returns with results tonight at 8/7c on NBC.
