America spoke, and the three acts movng on from the less than par YouTube QF were three of the stronger acts of the week, amid a night of youtube sensations performing basically boring nonsense, though the final youtube hand-dancing act was somewhat enjoyable.
Acrobatics/gymnastics team Gymkata got the good news first, followed by blacklight stunt biker Matt Wilhelm, then singer Kevin Colis. Not bad, America, not bad.
The judges were left to decide between interpretive opera dancer Beth Ann Robinson and theatrical dance troupe West Springfield Dance Team. Flip a coin as far as I cared, both acts were pretty good and likeable high school kids.
Piers voted for Beth Ann.
Sharon voted for West Springfield.
Howie voted for Beth Ann! YAY!
Then Sharon made the whole judges decision thing moot by announcing WSDT would be one of her wild card selections for next week. (More on the wc's in my next post.)
As far as the youtube sensation performers I saw tonight, three were a complete waste of time, the singer was an ok singer, but I do like those hand clappers or whatever that's called.
