Performance Masterclass For America’s Got Talent Season 8 Top 60: Group 2

Okay, this show is gradually evolving into America’s Got Vocalists.

There are so many fine, diverse singers on this show. If all the fans decide to jump on board, we could have a Top 4 Vocal Finale on our hands.

However, let us not disregard the emerging superstar status of magician and illusionist, Collins Key. With his youthful, handsome appeal, his stellar stage craft and smooth delivery, this 17-year-old artist will give the vocalists a run for their money.

However, he will have to “play his hand” ( so to speak) incredibly well in order to dodge the triple threat bullet known as, Forte.

These talented trio of vocalists combine enormous charisma and vocal power to create the most exquisite classical harmony ever seen and heard on the AGT stage. They are a FORCE and when you exchange the T (for tenor), you end up with FORTE, which means strong, invincible and powerful.

Performing on Tuesday night, July 30th are:

Alexandr Magala

Angela Hoover


Brad Byers

Ciana Pelekai

Dave Shirley

Forte – featuring Josh Page, Sean Panikkar and Fernando Varela

Innovative Force

Kid the Wiz

Marty Brown

Struck Boyz

Tone the Chiefrocca

I cannot tell a lie – I am rooting for these guys. They are just what the music industry needs to heighten the revival of superb live music.

So, who all are you rooting for? And remember, you can vote on Twitter, the AGT Facebook Page or Official Website and by phone. No texting as far as I know. And you must be a US citizen (darn)!

America’s Got Talent airs on Wednesday, July 30th at 9:00 PM Eastern on NBC.
