This week, America’s Got Talent will select their final group of Finalists when the last crop of semi-finalists perform for your votes on Tuesday, September 6th and Wednesday, September 7th.

I apologize for being AWOL but the summer has been pretty crazy at my end and I am trying to establish some sense of normalcy. Thank you for your patience and your support. 

Here is a snapshot from AGT’s Wikipedia Page pertaining to this week’s performances:

As I have said before “I am rooting for the a Capella group, Linkin’ Bridge and singer Brian Justin Crum. But, in truth, I haven’t regularly watched the show this summer, so the other acts are not known to me.  I am sure they are all extremely talented”.  But, I am a sucker for illusionists, magicians and mentalists so tonight’s show is pretty much in my lane. 

Enjoy the show everyone and come and visit in the comments section.
