'America's Got Talent': Presenting your Top 24

Posted on


Image Credit: NBCThe day has finally come, PopWatchers. I didn’t think we were going to make it, but we’ve reached the semifinals of America’s Got Talent!

The final four acts to advance were acrobats Michael Lipari & Ashleigh Dejon, magician Michael Grasso, tiny dancers Anna & Patryk, and Howard Stern’s favorite act, kite flyer Connor Doran, whose poetic Tuesday night performance left Howie misty-eyed with pride. Did America (and the judges) get it right with these four Wild Card choices? Did Connor Doran bring tears to your eyes too?

Here’s the complete list of the Top 24 acts:

Nathaniel Kenyon

Christina and Ali

Fighting Gravity

Future Funk

Alice Tan Ridley

Michael Grimm


Antonio Restivo

Jeremy Vanschoonhoven

Debra Romer

Studio One Young Beasts Society



Murray SawChuck

Taylor Matthews

Prince Poppycock

Jackie Evancho

Dan Sperry

Alexander Bui

Kristina Young

Michael Grasso

Anna & Patryk

Connor Doran

Michael Lipari & Ashleigh Dejon

Semifinals begin on Tuesday, when 12 acts will perform live for a chance to advance to the Top 10 (which, if we’re lucky should take place sometime before 2011).

Who are your favorites to go all the way? And what was your reaction to LeAnn Rimes’ barefoot-beach party performance?
