Zap2it caught up with the Top 10 "America's Got Talent" finalists and with Fighting Gravity, it came up that they have dropped out of Virginia Tech in order to concentrate on the show -- but of course they are still prioritizing Va Tech's football showdown with Boise State Monday night (Sept. 6). "That's on the priority list for sure. Not gonna miss that. It's 1) Boise State-Tech game, 2) finish our routine for next week, 3) laundry," Fighting Gravity jokes. But what we didn't know is that the game has sparked a friendly rivalry with sister singers Christina & Ali. "Christina & Ali, the singers, their cousin plays for Boise State, so it's a fun rivalry," the boys tell us, while Christina and Ali start chanting Boise State! Boise State! Boise State!

Last night's acts were so phenomenal (except three or four that were so-so) that it's almost impossible to 100 percent predict which acts will get a spot in the Top 10 this week. For sure, a lot of fans will be angry because some extremely deserving acts will not return next week. Which acts did America voted for? Are your favorites returning for the Top 10? Read on for the answers as well as the list of the Top 10 finalists who will perform next week for a spot in the Top 4. First up were Debra Romer, Michael Grasso, Murray, and Nathaniel Kenyon. My first thought when they walked on stage was that the results show would start with an upset and Nick would announce that everyone was sent packing. After all, the producers and Nick tricked us last week during the result show and could do it again! Luckily, one of these acts made it through: magician Michael Grasso! Mark your calendars 'AGT' fans, we finally have a magician going to the finals! A first! To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now
Having an element of suspense is an important part of any contest. Suspense heightens the tension for the contestants -- and it raises the stakes for the audience. But in the case of singer Jackie Evancho and the 'America's Got Talent' judges, things just haven't been very suspenseful. The judges clearly loved the 10-year-old opera singer from the first second that they saw her. Tonight (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC) was no different. While there were some other impressive acts appearing on the show -- such as performance group Fighting Gravity, and vocalists Alice Tan Ridley and Nathan Kenyon -- all eyes were essentially on Ms. Evancho from the moment that she stepped out on stage.

[Spoiler alert.] Well, one shoo-in made it through: the talented Jackie Evancho. The 10-year-old opera singer humbly thanked America for voting for her. More shocking was that 'AGT' will have its first magician in the finals: Michael Grasso. The judges had to pick between Studio One Young Beast Society and Alice. Check the video for their decision and the other winners. Source Here
America's Got Talent will be on the hunt for more talent as NBC has renewed the competition series for a sixth season, the network announced on Tuesday "AGT continues to be a ratings sensation and has hit it out of the ballpark creatively this season," said Paul Telegdy, executive vice president of NBC's alternative programming. "We're looking forward to an even bigger summer next year." Judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel, who replaced David Hasselhoff this season, will be returning for Season 6, along with host Nick Cannon. In its fifth season currently, the show has averaged 11.8 million viewers, which has undoubtedly been helped by opera-singing prodigy Jackie Evancho, Lady Gaga wannabe Price Poppycock and LeAnn Rimes' bikini-clad performance.

On the first "America's Got Talent" semi-finals results show, Australian pop star Kylie Minogue performed her new single "Get Outta My Way," complete with big hair, black minidress and half-dressed cabaret backup dancers. "Get Outta My Way" is Minogue's second single from her 2010 album "Aphrodite." "Way" will officially drop on Sept. 27.

Both "Big Brother 12" and "America's Got Talent" saw their ratings rise some compared to last Wednesday, with the former scoring the night's best demographic numbers and the latter gathering the biggest overall audience. Thanks to "AGT," NBC led the night overall with 7.4 million viewers and a 4.6 rating/8 share in households. CBS drew 6.9 million people and a 4.4/8 for second, while FOX (5.1 million, 3.0/5) came in third. ABC's 3.8 million viewers and 2.5/4 were good enough for fourth place. The CW (1.25 million, 0.8/1) trailed. FOX led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.2 rating (even though, like last week, it didn't win either hour in which it broadcast. Hooray consistency). NBC finished second at 2.0, a tenth of a point ahead of CBS, 1.9. ABC averaged 1.1 and The CW 0.4. To Read More Click Here .
"America's Got Talent" improved on its performance from last week in leading NBC to an across-the-board ratings win Tuesday night.

FOX came in fourth with 3.9 million viewers and a 2.5/4, while The CW (938,000, 0.6/1) was pretty much a non-factor.

CBS managed only a 1.2 in the demo, and The CW came in at 0.3. To Read More Click Here .
America's Got Talent would like to introduce its latest discovery to the world: Prince Poppycock. The outrageous performer sang Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" on Tuesday night's show in full Victorian wig, makeup and costume and received a standing ovation from the judges. "This is your night; this is all about Poppycock," judge Howie Mandel said. Sharon Osbourne added, "You are the male Lady Gaga; you are a superstar."

Sharon Osbourne has a high tolerance for crazy -- her 28 years as Ozzy's wife have no doubt helped her deal with manic, recovering-alcoholic people like former coworker David Hasselhoff. She misses working with him on 'America's Got Talent,' she said on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC). "My thing is, hey, whatever you do in your own time, God bless. He can snort, sniff, shoot, do whatever he wants, as long as he comes to work straight -- which he did." But even she has her limits, and the 'Comedy Central Roast' of Hasselhoff breached them. "Why do people do those roasts? Why why why why would anybody just be totally humiliated? He must be into S&M or something!" In fairness, the host noted that Osbourne wasn't an innocent observer at the event: She did participate. Kimmel also shared his favorite part of the program. Source & Video
