Yeah. It's been an interesting year, to be sure. I'll reserve my judgment on whether we got a deserving winner tomorrow.

1. Angelica Hale - She is going to be the world's best big sister. I agree she's probably not going to win (she doesn't need a Vegas show right now), but I can only imagine what she's going to be like five, ten years from now. She may take over the world.

2. Chase Goehring - He's crazy talented, no doubt about that. He's got a future in this business for sure.

3. Sara and Hero - Is it a good act? Yes. Do I hope she frees herself from poverty? Yes? Do I want her to win? No. Does she have a shot? (We elected Trump.)

4. Diavolo - THIS is a Vegas show. I don't think there's anything in Vegas like this, and I hope they're there for a long, long time.

5. Evie Clair - God, I feel for this girl. What a shame her dad couldn't live to see this. For her to suck it up and perform anyway speaks volumes about her strength and character. She's probably the weakest singer in the field that's left, but it doesn't matter. She's proved her point, and if there's any justice, she'll build this into a great career.

6. Preacher Lawson - LOVE the pre-performance packages so far. Oh, man, this dude is funny. How has he not gotten a break thus far? Well, his time has come.

7. Kechi Okwuchi - Spot on. Perfect song choice, flawless delivery. What a great night this has been, and the three best are still to come.


I like how they put the three clear favorites at the end of the show. None of these acts ever performed in the first half of any round.


8. Darci Lynn Farmer - Ohmigod this girl. What can you say. I want her to win. I totally want her to win. She's gonna win. Maybe...

9. Mandy Harvey - She's amazing. Tonight's song wasn't my favorite she's done, but ... wow. This season is all about survivors - hardship, trauma, death, disability, shyness, poverty ... every finalist has a story, but Mandy's might just be the best.

10. Light Balance - I would see these guys perform in a hot second. Wow. Just wow. This could rival Blue Man Group. I could watch this ALL DAY.


What a great, great night. One of the best finales back to front ever. Even Sara & Hero weren't horrible. I want Darci Lynn to win, and if not her, Light Balance. However, I won't be upset if any of them (except Sarah & Hero) win. GOD, I love this show.

Well, I guess we shouldn't be too surprised, as every top 5 act was an act who never needed saving, but damn, Sarah and Hero top FIVE? Ridiculous. Angelica number 2? That was surprising that she finished above Mandy, but not entirely undeserving. It truly was the season of the young female singer. And of course it was Darcy Lynne taking home the crown. She's about to become a mega-millionaire, and she deserves every bit of it.

What a great season, and what a great result. Darci Lynne is amazing, and I hope her career spans decades.

Fighting Gravity? Came in third. Team iLuminte? Came in third? Light Balance... was there ever a doubt what they would come in?

I loved how Angelica kept leaving her spot so she could hug every single person as they left the stage. Like I said, she's going to be the world's best big sister.

Can't wait till next year!

There is still one WC act still to be announced.

Well, we know a preteen singer won't win this year like in the last two singers. But damn, there are a LOT of singers.

Michael Ketterer has to be the favorite at this point, but I'd love to see a visual act like UDI Dance break through and win.

A comedy act has never won, and neither has a dance act, and I don't think that will happen this year (unless you count UDI dance, which I don't).

Live shows! Why is Tyra out here looking like Goldmember?

Mochi - I still don't think this is enough to go far in this show. I love him, I don't love the act.

Human Fountains - Ok, I like them. I think their dedication is phenomenal and I think it's really funny. But they shouldn't be here. Come on. This got a Wild Card?

Angel City Chorale - I got chills again. Awesome song choice. Wonderful performance. Loved this.

PAC dance team - Meh. They just aren't great dancers. The costumes are fun, but this shouldn't be good enough.

Amanda Mena - I think she's the weakest of the Golden Buzzers. She has a good voice, but I wasn't blown away. I think Mel is cranky, Simon was probably right about her being a part of a group.

Junior New System - I love these guys! Their synchronicity is perfect, and their personality is even better. I'd be very disappointed if they go home.

We Three - Again I find myself agreeing with Simon. This was a definite step back from the judge cuts, where they did a song I think could be on the radio tomorrow. Today, this song was meh and the performance was a little dull.

Lord Nil - He's pretty good at what he does, but I thought this wasn't the greatest act. Tyra narrating the whole thing was dumb, IMO.

Flau'jae - Easily the best rapper this show has ever seen. She's so good, she's got the story, and she'll have America behind her. She's a finalist.

Shin Lim - He might be my favorite act in the entire competition. He's so incredible. I have no idea how he just makes thing disappear, it is freaking mesmerizing. I could watch this forever. Finalist.

Vicki Barbolak - She's great. I'm not sure she's a finalist, but she's absolutely going through tonight.

Courtney Hadwin - Holy. Shit. Dude. I didn't think she could win when I saw her first audition. Now I do. She's incredible. She might be the most purely talented singer in the show's history. 200 million views speaks volumes. She might just walk away with the million.


The last 4 are shoe-ins. After that, I'm going Angel CIty Chorale, Junior New System and Amanda Mena to round out the 7. Lord Nil and We Three have an outside shot to steal one of their spots, but I actually think this one is pretty cut and dry.

This is why I preferred Nick Cannon. Tyra goes out of her way to steal the camera's attention. Like the show's about her.



Mochi - You know I love the visual acts, and I'm only backing one this year. This isn't it. I couldn't watch this for an hour.

Human Fountains - Yeah, no. This was mildly funny ONCE. ONCE. It's just nasty. This is the third time, and I don't want to see them again.

Angel City Chorale - Great song (and finally, a song not involving Africa). Loved them. The best choir in AGT history. Yeah, I said it.

PAC Dance Team - I want to root for them because they're from Arizona, but ... no. They shouldn't have made it this far.

Amanda Mena - I disagree, I think Heidi's GB Mikayla is the weakest by far. Has a GB ever been cut in the first round of live shows? It hasn't happened often. I think if the judges have to save her, they will. I really like her.

Junior New System - Well, Filipina wife, so I have to root for them. Will they make it on this loaded show? We'll see.

We Three - Meh. They're okay. I wouldn't put them through.

Lord Nil - Yeah, Tyra's play by play really diluted it. He's good, but, he's middle of the pack for me. I doubt he'll move on. And what crawled up Mel's butt?

Flau'jae - The best rapper? Well, think.. how many have their been? I remember you loving Tone the Chiefrocca's "B-OO-T-Y" song a few years ago... anyway, she's awesome. Are there enough lovers of rap to put her in the finals? Not sure.

Shin Lim - Wow, this guy. Apart from Mat Franco, this may be the best magician in this show's history. He may not win, but I hope he gets his own show. He's sure earned it.

Vicki Barbolak - Loved the backdrop! Her set wasn't my favorite she's done, but we need at least one comedian in the next round.

Courtney Hadwin - Hmm. Can we have a preteen/barely-teen singer girl win three years running? Like you, I wasn't convinced that would happen. Till now.


So, seven acts will go through - five on votes, the instant save, and the judge's choice.

My choices:
Angel City Chorale
Junior New System
Amanda Mena
Flau'jae
Shin Lim
Vicki Barbolak
Courtney Hadwin

Yeah. That was the only thing that was wrong. The other six deserved to go through. The Middle Three went exactly as it should have.


OMG, I love Darci Lynn. That girl is magic.




So, here is who is performing next week (from most likely to advance to the least)

Glennis Grace
The Sacred Riana
Voices of Hope
Noah Guthrie
Makayla Phillips (Simon's GB)
Samuel Conroe
Duo Transcend
Yumbo Dump
Da Republic
Front Pictures (WC)
The Savitsky Cats
Quin and Misha



And, coming in two weeks:

Michael Ketterer
UDI Dance
Zucaroh
Brian King Joseph
Christina Wells
Aaron Crow
Rob Lake
Daniel Emmet (WC)
Joseph O'Brien
Us the Duo
The Future Kingz
Hans

I'd love to see Daniel Emmet FINALLY get his due, but there are a LOT of musical acts this week.


What do you think, Geez?

It should be fun. Great that Daniel got that last WC. I can't WAIT to see The Sacred Riana's pre-performance video package.
