Let’s Eat Cake Says America’s Got Talent Semi-Finalists, Forte!


America’s Got Talent semifinalist, Forte, recently reunited to rehearse new music for their upcoming appearances on the show.

And, their hard work was rewarded with a yummy looking cake presented in their honor at a dinner break from rehearsals at the beautiful Peabody Orlando!

They are scheduled to make another appearance on the show in approximately three weeks, where they will be competing for a spot in the Top 10 against 19 other acts.

But, for now, they are pretty excited about finally being able to spend some quality time rehearsing full-length numbers without the aid of Facetime or Skype. Nothing like “real life” interaction to solidify those harmonies, right guys? Not that you need to!

And, in case you have forgotten the names of this talented threesome, they are Josh Page, Sean Panikkar and Fernando Varela. You can follow them on Twitter or Facebook as solo artists and as members of Forte.

  • So, beneath all that icing, I am guessing there is a chocolate cake! Nothing like the cocoa bean, right?

    Any guesses or song suggestions for Forte’s future performances? Comment away!

    2. Awestruck – I was just thinking of this myself. We see so little of these acts. I guess we have to pack our bags and go to Vegas. 🙂

      Unfortunately, even if I knew the name of their next song, I couldn’t divulge. Maybe I can work out a “hint” thing. Stay tuned…

      And thank you for your support. It means a great deal to me.
