Tonight, the second group of semi-finalists will strut their stuff in an effort to gain entry into next week’s Top 10 show.

There are some strong frontrunners in this Group of 12, including singers Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. and Anna Graceman, magician Landon Swank, innovative dancing act Silhouettes and the incredible gymnastic ability of Gymkana.

In addition, the novelty acts of the Kinetic King and Professor Splash should contribute added dimension and entertainment value to this semi-final show.

  1. I am enjoying all the talent on the show! Loving dancing as I do – this is a great season for me to be watching the show. WOW! However, I can picture Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. singing in Las Vegas right now! He has a gorgeous voice! He should be in the Finale with at least one of the dancing troupe’s.

    Sad to see some of the acts fail… nerves I am sure. I think Professor Splash WAS off target. Look at Howie’s face – he was worried! I also found him to be a bit smug rather than confident. I think Anna and the Silhouettes will get through.

    What do you thuink, MCL?


  2. Kariann – I thought Piers Morgan was far too hard on Landau. He certainly didn’t deserve that.

    I love Anna Graceman but think Landau – of all the singers – is more unique.

    Silhouettes – superb but I didn’t enjoy their act last night as much as other nights.

    Landen Swank is a gifted magician and I would love to see him in the Top 10

    My picks for Top 10 are Snap Boogie, Landen, Silhouettes, Anna and Landau, with Landau eclipsing all of them for the Finale.


  3. My picks for last night are Landen, Anna, Landau, and the Kinetic King. Sorry but I am really amused by the Kinetic King!!! I would also prefer Snap Boogie, but I think the Smage Brothers motorbike riders will probably make it.

    I too was disappointed with Silhouettes last night. Their first performance was my favorite.


  4. Well, 5 will make it through tonight so there is hope for Snap Boogie, Louise.

    But, if Landau doesn’t make it through I will be thoroughly crushed. I just love him.
