'America's Got Talent' sure loves singers

Posted on


Last night’s America’s Got Talent finally shook things up a tiny bit, with early favorites ArcAttack unexpectedly getting the boot. Worst! At least Prince Poppycock made the cut, as did Michael Grimm, Taylor Matthews, Anna & Patryk, and Christina & Ali. Not so lucky? Future Funk, Dan Sperry, Kristina Young, AscenDance, Antonio Restivo, and Connor Doran.

For those of you keeping score at home (all of us), of the first five finalist acts, four are singers. Four! (Anna & Patryk are ballroom dancers. Child ballroom dancers.)

I’m disappointed. Kite guy Connor Doran, funky rock-climbing duo AscenDance, crazy electricity-wielding ArcAttack — America, do you really prefer mediocre pop balladeers? Consider me underwhelmed.

What about you, PopWatchers? Are you sad to see ArcAttack go? Are you still Team Poppycock, or do Christina & Ali get your sympathy votes?
