It’s time to get swagalicious with our America’s Got Talent 2013 recap of the first live results show. Which acts are going through? First, it's time put on your glittery jockstrap, practice your throat singing, and don’t rest on your tuchas.
Last night’s first live performance show from Radio City Music Hall was chock full of talent, so we know we’re in for some tough decisions. The episode kicked off with three acts being told that one of them was moving on, but then all were shockingly sent home all at once: Aaralyn + Izzy; Kevin Downey, Jr.; and Alexanderia the Great.
Then, another three set of performers were brought up and summarily dismissed: Special Head, Fresh Faces, and Hype. Howie was shocked by another three performers heading home, calling this “unprecedented.” Howie said Fresh Faces had a bright future ahead of them, Hype got “swallowed” up by the big stage, and Special Head “blew it.” So much for sugarcoating it.
Finally, we got a little good news in the form of the Kristef Brothers moving on. “White man with an afro!” Nick exclaimed, summing up the source of their appeal. Then, Nick had one more from this bunch of three performers, pushing Collins Key onto the semis and bidding farewell to TellAVision. “I think that America did the right thing,” Heidi said about Collins. Keypers rejoice!
There were now three performers left, with two moving forward. This meant that opera singer Branden James was safe, with Howard praising Branden for his “emotion, power, talent” and saying he’s “ready to win.” Finally, it was down to American Hitmen and 11-year-old Anna Christine, with Anna proving victorious.
So which four acts are moving forward? Tonight, the lucky America's Got Talent acts are: Kristef Brothers, Collins Key, Branden James, and Anna Christine. Congrats to all four! Swagalicious, indeed.
