The America’s Got Talent 2021 semi-finals are finally here.
Among them, of course, is Léa Kyle with her amazing quick-change skills, after she wowed the judges during the quarter-final stage.
Competition is stiff this year, and yesterday the first group of 11 semi-finalists hit the stage to do what they do best.
Host Terry Crews calls it “the toughest competition in the world” – I think that’s a bit of a stretch when compared to the Enduroman – and performers will have to be on the top of their games to advance to the finals of season 16.
USA Today reports that Simon Cowell already has a favourite, and he’s not alone:
Tonight’s show also saw Aidan Bryant emerge as a frontrunner. Cowell called the 16-year-old “the one to beat” leading into Tuesday’s performance and the self-taught aerialist didn’t disappoint with his fiery routine. He received a standing ovation from the judges and studio audience.
“I cannot even talk because they are going crazy for you,” Sofía Vergara said as the crowd continued its rowdy applause. “I was on my feet because how could you not. You’re 16 years old, self-taught and no safety net… this was a gold level performance.”
As someone who gets dizzy from a few twirls, watching Bryant swing to and fro from the rafters comes with extra appreciation:
Very, very impressive.
Cowell was also full of praise for 10-year-old Peter Rosalita, who covered Mariah Carey’s ‘Without You’, and Jimmie Herrod, who received a standing ovation from both the judges and the crowd after his performance of Pink’s ‘Glitter in the Air’.
