The first Group Of Twelve Acts is set to hit the America’s Got Talent stage on Tuesday, July 29th at 9:00 PM. on NBC

Over the next four weeks, four groups of twelve will perform for your votes, with the results being revealed each Wednesday.

Scheduled to perform tonight are one of my favorites, The Willis Clan. I don’t really think they need the win but they were flying under the radar prior to this great AGT platform so it is great to see the added exposure they – and their competitors – receive via this show.

Who are you rooting for? Which discipline do you hope will rise to the top of the heap this season? As much as I love the singers, I would love to see a magic act take the million dollar prize.

Comments are now open for business.

  1. Hello,
    It was unfortunate that the Willis Clan was eliminated last night, but hopefully we haven’t heard the last of them.

    I very much like the singer, Emily–love her voice! I was sorry to see the young girl in the red dress leave. From my untrained ears, she has a lovely voice. I hope she pursues a musical career.

    And I hope that Miguel Dakota does well. Singing with the band didn’t showcase his voice as much as his solo audition.

    Looking forward to the show next week because there are some other wonderful performers yet to come.
