America's Got Talent Season 15 - Semi Finals Round 2


Recommended Posts

Broken Roots, Brandon Leake, Roberta Battaglia, Alan Silva and Archie Williams have all made it through to next week's Finale. Who will join them? 11 acts battle for the final 5 spots in the Season Finale. Who will survive your votes?


Please welcome your host, Terry Crews! And your judges: Heidi Klum! Howie Mandel! And Sofia Vergara! We kick off with Simon Cowell's Golden Buzzer, dance group W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew. Six personalities, one team. 


Set in an autoshop, the W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew delivers a tight, expressive dance routine with flips, hand stands and fancy footwork, using horizontal and vertical surfaces, making synchronized order out of chaos. 


Heidi says W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew lifts spirits and energy. Howie says they were amazing and stepped it up, how you played with everything. My favorite act tonight! Sofia says it was spectacular, you make it look so easy, you show your passion and personalities. 


The next act is Kanadi Dodds, whose father can hear her sing but not see her perform. Playing the piano in a garden set in the middle of a street, she sings Be A Light (Keith Urban and Reba McEntire), her vocal is mature and confident, her voice ringing out with sincerity and smoothness.


Howie says Kenadi really stepped it up. Sofia says the song was the perfect sentiment for the night, you were a confident pop star. Heidi says there are so many amazing young singers this season but you just gave a stellar performance.


The next act is lucky to be on AGT, or is it something else? It's magician Max Major! With Heidi's help, Max guesses which hand holds a poker chip, followed by a game of roulette with Howie, Sofia, Heidi, Terry, Max and an audience member each picking a number. 


Max gives the wheel a spin and Heidi rolls the ball in to the roulette and it selects 13. Heidi reveals he bought a lottery ticket with all the numbers picked by the judges and audience. Going bigger, he shows a Universal Citywalk billboard with all the numbers, including 13.


Sofia says it was a risky, complicated trick. He stepped it up and made it harder but also confusing. Howie says it was confusing, not a step up. Heidi says I don't understand what you didn't understand - the ball and the  ticket had all the numbers he predicted on the billboard.


The next act comes from Germany, acrobatic trio Bello Sisters. Performing feats of strength and balance with leg splits, their performance is very theatrical with smoke and energetic lighting, dramatic and, when they put on blindfolds, dangerous. 


Heidi says that hurt to watch, you create these human sculptures, insane yet beautiful. Howie was beyond impressed, when that leg goes back, I was expecting a snap, not human, so much strength. Sofia says the whole show was incredible, delicate flowers, so strong, mesmerizing.


Celina Graves gained her confidence in music from playing soccer. Singing Jealous (Labrinth) from a backlot rooftop, her  vocal rings out through the night sky, quietly powerful, her voice full of promise and emotional honesty.


Howie tells Celina you have to blow people away and whether you did is the question. Sofia thinks it was enough, you are always enough, like an awards show performance. Heidi says all of you will walk away with so much more than the top prize, you are amazing.


The next act is outside, daredevil Jonathan Goodwin, performing an escape trick from a zip line 60' up despite being afraid of heights. He will be riding across the line with his teeth while tied up and a chain that only goes half way across with his safety ropes on fire. With the judges screaming, two of the safety lines quickly burn through, leaving Jonathan hanging from one flaming rope only by his teeth. He gets his hands untied, unlocks the chain and reaches the other side just as the final rope burns through. OMG, says Howie!


Sofia says this was her favorite of all his stunts, they showed everything, you're coo-coo in the head. Heidi says I want to see your most scariest act, every time it is new & different. Howie says there's no middle ground with you, it's terrifying, nothing more dangerous.


The next act wants her son to reach for the stars and not know her hardships. It's Cristina Rae, singing Jump (Cynthia Ierivo), standing in the middle of a virtual river under a bridge, her voice clear and soaring through air, her vocal powerful and honest & meaningful.


With Jeremiah applauding from the Zoom Video Wall, Heidi says we will end this journey next week in the Finale. Howie says you're the singer to beat this season, your voice is pure, powerful, entertaining, the PPE we need. Sofia says tonight you nailed it, perfection, rose is your color.


From India comes Bad Salsa, expressing colorful emotions when they dance. Inside a studio temple, their unique style of rapid fire dance moves rockets out of the starching gate and never lets up, a cross of Bollywood and Salsa, with fast paced tricks & lifts. 


Personally, I have to wonder if the tape wasn't sped up. Sofia says everybody wants to dance when you show up, a bit of comedy too. Heidi says it feels like it is on fast forward, it's lightening speed, India should be beyond proud. Howie says that was amazing, worthy of the Finale.


The next act is a group of singers brought together by hope, it's Voices Of Our City Choir. Singing Heroes (David Bowie)with words of inspiration and background vocals floating around them, the vocal is a little laid back yet solid and inspirational. 


Heidi says I want to talk about the real heroes, doctors, nurses, teachers, and fire fighters. Howie says the song and intent is beautiful and important more now than ever before, gravitas on stage. Sofia says what you stand for is amazing.


Brett Loudermilk has been on a wild ride doing things nobody should ever do at home. Howie joins him on stage keeping a case safe (Deal!). Heidi and Sofia pick a card of an object commonly swallowed by children, a rubber duckie. In Howie's case is an endoscopic camera. 


Brett says he swallowed one of the things in the cards 20 years ago and it's still inside him. He plugs the endoscope into a monitor and slides the endoscope down his throat to reveal a rubber ducky. Then he regurgitates the rubber ducky. 


Sofia says that was the most unnecessary thing. Brett says you saw something no one has ever seen before. But we didn't want to see it, Sofia says. Howie says I didn't love it (the Zoom Audience boos), but how do you top that, with your bottom? Heidi says you are ducking kidding me! Kind of disgusting but I'm always intrigued every time.


The final act of the Semi-Finals is 14yr old singer Daneliya Tuleshova, singing Who You Are (Jessie J), I couldn't understand the lyrics until I figured out the song, her vocal was low and the words melted into the melody, but her voice musically was on fire.


Sofia says your voice, the song, your outfit, that was so unexpected, shining like a star. Heidi says you can sing, you have the pipes, there's something in the water this season. Howie says I think you're an easy decision, this wasn't a talent competition but a concert.
