Pictured above are the performers from last week’s’ show who successfully advanced to the Semi- Finals. I am pretty okay with most of these picks – it is all about the diversity of the entertainment on this show. How else can one explain the hoopla surrounding Piff The Magic Dragon? 

Personally, I would have enjoyed seeing male vocal trio, Triple Threat, included in this group instead of  Piff, but it’s not about me, is it?  Ha! I thought these guys were great and I look forward to the evolvement of their career post AGT.

I love all these acts but have a special admiration for The CraigLewis Band. I will freak out if they don’t move on but I am pretty sure they will. 

America’s Got Talent Performance Show Airs On Tuesday, August 18th at 8:00 PM on NBC followed by the Results Show on Wednesday, August 19th – same time, same station.   Performing on the Results Show will be AGT Season 9 Finalist, Emily West,  and Season 7 Finalist, William Close. Nice!  I am looking forward to both performances.
