Performing Masterclass Discussion For America’s Got Talent Season 8 Top 24: The Semi-Finals Part One


Update via Buddy TV

Apparently the KriStef Brothers posted the following message on Facebook, further complicating the lineup for this week (and this is exactly what was posted, so don’t blame me for style): “Serious news. Kristef Bothers will not perform this week. A serious injury was sustained to Kristofers neck during a high fall in Rehearsal. He is OK and and is in the healing process, we must just give some time to make sure we can deliver the best performance we can. Sorry everyone for not making this episode but we will SEE YOU CHAMPIONS …..SEPTEMBER 3RD….!!!!!!

This is going to be one blockbuster of a show tonight on America’s Got Talent.

Many of the strongest acts of the season will be gracing the stage, including the lauded tenor trio, Forte. And, as their name implies, they will be a force to be reckoned with.

Young talented magician, Collins Key, is all alone in his category and, along with Forte, comes equipped with a very strong fan base.

Catapult Entertainment was absolutely magical last week. I mentioned on Twitter how beautiful it would be to see and hear Forte perform a song with Catapult providing the backdrop in the future.

Here is the star-studded lineup:

  • Angela Hoover, Comedian
  • Cami Bradley, Singer/Pianist
  • Catapult Entertainment, Shadow Dance Ensemble
  • Collins Key, magician
  • Dave Fenley, Singer
  • Duo Resonance, Balancing Act
  • Forte, operatic tenor trio
  • Innovative Force, Acrobatic Dance Group
  • Jonathan Allen, operatic soloist
  • KriStef Brothers, Hand Balancing Act
  • Red Panda, a Howie Wild Card pick will perform in their place.

  • Taylor Williamson, Comedian
  • Tone the Chiefrocca, Rapper
  • Who will you be voting for tonight? Please share all in the comments section.
