  • Season in Review: The Top 10 Performances of Season 12

    Season in Review: The Top 10 Performances of Season 12 Darci Lynne Farmer may have won America's Got Talent, but did she have the best moment of Season 12? To find out, I reviewed nearly every meaningful performance from the audition round straight through to the finals and ordered up the cream of the crop.
    Since it's only a Top 10, every included act is ranked based on his, her or its best. For example, you could justifiably argue that Darci Lynne's routine in the finals belongs on this list. But you won't find it here, because her semifinal performance is what made her the championship frontrunner.

    So here are my Top 10 performances of Season 12, and feel free to note your agreement or outrage in the comments section below.

    Honorable Mention: Underappreciated Genres

    The two most disrespected AGT novelty acts, year after year, are rolla bolla and acrobatic roller skate spinning. And in Season 12, we had some of the best in each.

    First was newlywed Jonathan Rinny, whose mother-in...

  • Season 12 Finale A New Champion is Crowned

    Season 12 Finale  A New Champion is Crowned Cue up the music, fill the confetti cannons, and have Tyra Banks ready her final-ever dramatic America's Got Talent pause (probably), because the time to crown the Season 12 champion is finally here!
    After four grueling months, countless sob stories (nearly all relating to vocalists), a whopping nine golden buzzers (nearly all going to said sad vocalists), several shocking judge cuts and a few viewer mistakes, we're about to find out who will walk away with $1 million (payable in a financial annuity over 40 years or the contestant may choose to receive the present cash value of such an annuity) and his or her name in lights, at least for a few nights.

    Ten acts entered, but only one can leave a post-tax lump-sum $300,000-aire.

    Easiest Prediction Ever?

    There's a general consensus as to the acts competing for a medal, as well as a clear favorite overall, but diving into the numbers a little further indicates it might not be that close.

    The Top 10 Perform Welcome, welcome, ladies and gents! The long-awaited moment is finally here.
    The painstaking endeavor of whittling down thousands of America's Got Talent competitors into a questionably worthy Top 10 is complete, and a single performance is all that stands between the remaining acts and the coronation of the season 12 champion.

    Will it be a singer? Will it be a crooning ventriloquist? How about dancers, be they aglow or on atop giant contraptions? Could it be our first-ever stand-up comedian? Or will AGT once again go to the dogs?

    The one thing we know for sure is it won't be a magician, as the finals are devoid of the genre for the first time in as long as I've been watching. Is this more or less sad than two years ago when the finals consisted of all men but several magicians?

    Only time (and your votes) will separate the contenders from the pretenders, but before they hit the stage, let's break down the playlist to determine who has a legitimat...

  • Results 5 More Finalists and a Sad Update

    Results  5 More Finalists and a Sad Update America's Got Talent capped off the Season 12 semifinals in grand fashion, following up a rebound from the putrid quarterfinals with a solid night of performances. Outside of one unfortunate act -- which came courtesy the judges' wildcard -- everyone brought their A game and delivered arguably his or her respective best.
    Still, there's a clear deliniation between who should stay and who should go, and the best part of the ideal lineup is that includes just two singers. So if the worthy advance, it will provide much needed genre diversity to the Top 10. But what should happen isn't always what does happen, especially when adorable children and plane crash survivors are involved.

    Breakdown and Predictions

    The five who deserve spots in the finale are Mandy Harvey, Angelica Hale, Colin Cloud, Light Balance and Diavolo. It's a solid mix with a few contenders, and none of the eliminated acts in this scenario has a chance to win anyway. The potential wrinkles ...

    11 More Semifinalists Perform America's Got Talent is back on track after a lackluster quarterfinals, with 12-year-old singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer delivering possibly the best performance of season 12 to kick off the semifinals.
    Sara and Hero ousted half-naked siblings Billy and Emily England in the sole results show shocker, but the pooches are so fun -- and spinning roller skate acrobatics so classically underrated -- that I won't protest too much. Neither was going to win anyway.

    Now 11 more acts will hit the stage hoping to earn your votes and one of five spots in the finale. It is (of course) singer laden and features a whopping five golden buzzer recipients, but methinks it may be the vocalists who struggle to stand out this time around.

    Lineup and Projections

    Mandy Harvey, the deaf singer who Simon Cowell sent straight to the live shows, has to be considered a favorite, and one must assume the superior Angelica Hale (Chris Hardwick's pick) will cancel out C...

    Results  Here are the 5 Acts Headed to the Finals After back-to-back snoozefests to close out the quarterfinals, America's Got Talent finally delivered a satisfying night of live performances that will hopefully get season 12 back on track. And now, five standouts are headed to the finals.
    There seems to be a general consensus as to four of the five acts that will make up half our Top 10, but the recipient of that final coveted spot remains a bigger mystery than how Eric Jones does his magic (because he shows us, like an accidental episode of Breaking the Magician's Code: Magic's Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed).

    Breakdown and Predictions

    Darci Lynne Farmer is an absolute lock, having presently garnered 85 and 76 percent of the votes, respectively, in a pair of TVBuz "best of the night" polls. Billy and Emily England and Preacher Lawson are similarly obvious choices after impressive showings, boosted by the simple fact that none of them sing for their supper (even if Preacher screams for his). ...

    The Semifinals Get Underway The semifinal round of America's Got Talent season 12 is finally here, meaning we're just two weeks away from crowning the next singer champion. One would hope that being down to the Top 21 (wildcard pending) would come with parity, but nope. There are still clear contenders and happy-to-be-heres as we enter the home stretch.
    Eleven acts are set to take the stage in the quest for your votes, but whereas seven advanced from each of the three quarterfinal shows, only five will be moving forward this time. The favorites for those five spots include four singers, a stand-up comic and half-naked siblings on roller skates -- because when you have half-naked siblings on roller skates, you vote for them.

    Lineup and Projections

    There are a whopping 13 singing acts in the semifinals, divided between the two shows, and the presence of so many vocalists alone is enough to stack the deck against most of them. Seven of them are about to perform, with the assumption t...
