The winners of “America’s Got Talent” Kodi Lee and Mat Franco returned when eleven acts became five – and the boy did not do this!
Once again, Kelly Clarkson was on board to fill in for Simon Cowell, and she was joined by a couple earlier “America has talent”
; winners to help the show complete an hour-long episode just to reveal five names.
Speaking of these five names, we had our predictions from the previous night to see if we (by which we mean you) are right. We predicted that you would promote Feng E, Double Dragon, Archie Williams, Roberta Battaglia and Simon & Maria.
AGT’s fifth judge: Live auditions kick off with Sofia Vergara almost killing a contestant … Again!
We are almost right, but then you have done it so much wrong and created a heartbreaking facial need that we would never have predicted and definitely did not want to see.
Again, the results are done in an overly complicated way. Acts one, two and three move forward automatically. Then four, five and six fight out the live Dunkin ‘Save. Then the remaining two acts among these three meet the judges who fill the final castle.
Pooh! There are so many ways to make progress that it makes it even harder to predict and easier to break the heart. Is that why it happened tonight?
Along the way, we were treated to two triumphant winners who returned to the stage that made them. The wizard Mat Franco blew everyone away with three incredible “coincidences”, while reigning champion Kodi Lee showed us a softer side.
Who do I think I am? you ask. Well, I spent almost a decade of my life sweating and bleeding to the music as a dancer. From a young boy who learned a shuffle-ball change to perform with St. Louis Ballet Company, I experienced the ups and downs of one of the most difficult physically demanding sports on the planet. During this time I was also a member of St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra, as well as a gymnast, author and cartoonist. I had a lot more energy in my younger years. And I have spent the last eighteen years analyzing and criticizing reality competition programs for various media publications. I have this.
RHOBH Recap: Denise Richards unloads on cast, producers intervene
The first ever magician to win “AGT” returned from the theater named after him in Las Vegas to blow Heidi and Kelly’s senses away with some impressive card sorting. It was a well-layered trick, which established the premise with what looked like a simple handshake but escalated the same premise to truly mind-blowing theaters. He has a fun ease with him and really helps you get excited with him when things work out – and they always do!
The reigning “AGT” champion came back with a whole new vibe and sound, but the same incredible talent. We saw a softer side of Kodi Lee when he put on Finnea’s “Break My Heart Again”, but that did not deny the incredible voice. It was a choice and Kodi remains an absolute champion class.
Brett Loudermilk, Feng E and Double Dragon were the three acts that came in fourth, fifth and sixth in voices from home. Obviously we feel that Brett should be the one to lose because we had the other two as ours TOP 2 works.
Seriously, what show did you watch, these acts killed it Tuesday night!

Of the remaining seven acts, Terry first mentioned Archie Williams, Bello & Annaliese Nock and Michael Yo. We immediately feared that our prediction that Michael would miss due to the weak start of his set would come true.
Of course this would Archie Williams.
Then it was time for Frenchie Babyy and Shaquira McGrath to meet the music. We had none of them in the semifinals, but we also know that America loves singers and acts that are more common and familiar.
As said, Shaquira McGrath’s the first audition was a revelation, so we can not be too crazy.
Roberta Battaglia, Pork Chop Revue and Simon & Maria were the last trio to move forward and learn their destiny. Our rankings should see this place go to Roberta, who is truly a remarkable singer. But she would also mark the third singer of three as America’s TOP 3. Have you really done that?
But nothing like predictability Roberta Battaglia is an amazing vocalist at such a young age.

Then it was time for the Dunkin ‘Save acts, Brett Loudermilk, Double Dragon and Feng E. To mostly redeem our predictions (to get at least four out of five), we need Brett to fall short in both this and the next round of eliminations .
So, of course, America voted in Brett Loudermjölk to crush everything.
How are the night’s best two acts before the finish line? It was up to the judges to move forward, and we could hardly be happy for the one who did it because the other was going home. Such injustice!
Okay, we lied, we’m still happy Double dragon, because not only do we love them but we love everything they represent.
But we can still be bitter that the most talented artist at night somehow leaves the competition.
“America’s Got Talent” continues Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 20 ET on NBC.
