'America's Got Talent' Finale Prediction: Who Will Win Season 11?

The odds are that a singer is going to take the crown on America's Got Talent season 11. Of the 10 remaining acts, half are singers or a singing group. So, essentially, there is a 50/50 chance that the winner will release an album that will be quickly ignored by the majority of America in no time.   In all seriousness, though, while there is a good chance that the America's Got Talent champion for season 11 will be a crooner of some sort, that's not a given. In fact, given the finale performances, the wind really does blow in a more variety/magic direction. Here are my predictions for who won't win, who could win and who will ultimately take home the million dollar prize on America's Got Talent season 11.   ...Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-finale-pre-61242.aspx

'America's Got Talent' Predictions: Who Will Be the Last 5 Acts to Make the Finals?

America's Got Talent did not save the best for last in the semifinals. While the first part of the semifinals was reasonably well-paced and had a fair number of real contenders, part two did not seal the deal. Regardless, the same amount of people are going to move on, even if only a handful deserve it. Here are my best predictions about who those final five acts moving to the finale will be on America's Got Talent .  ...Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-prediction-61179.aspx

'America's Got Talent' Predictions: Which 5 Acts Will Be in the Finals?

In all my previous America's Got Talent prediction article, I've been negative. I have only predicted the acts that were not going to move forward. Now that the semifinals have arrived, I'm going to try something different and go in the opposite direction. Five acts from the first semifinals episode are advancing, and it is time to give my best guesses. Here are my picks for the five acts most likely to move on to the America's Got Talent season 11 finale. ...Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-prediction-61111.aspx

'America's Got Talent' Predictions: Who are the Last 5 Acts That Won't Make the Semifinals?

After the (rude) forced hiatus by the Olympics, America's Got Talent is back and the final round of the quarterfinals is finally here. Though the hiatus was only 17 days, it feels like much longer. I truly do wonder how much the ratings juggernaut of the Olympics will end up hurting NBC's other summer hit America's Got Talent .   As for the talent, the quarterfinals might have actually saved the best for last. While it shouldn't be that hard to eliminate another five acts, there were more than a few who really stepped up their game. In some cases, they might have earned a spot in the semifinals based on the quarterfinals performance alone, having not truly impressed in previous rounds. The raising of the bar, though, means that the five acts going home might be the most unpredictable and painful of the season. ...Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-prediction-61039.aspx

'America's Got Talent' Predictions: Which 5 Acts from Round 2 Won't Make the Semifinals?

History repeats itself on America's Got Talent . Just like was the case following the first quarterfinals round, I'm only going to predict the five acts that are most likely going home. Also like the first quarterfinals, I almost wish that number of eliminated acts was higher.   The second round was better and I feel more confident in some of these acts actually winning the whole shebang. It is still a blessing in disguise, however, that America's Got Talent is cleaning house in these quarterfinals....   Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-prediction-60820.aspx

'America's Got Talent' Predictions: Which 5 Acts Won't Make the Semifinals?

No one is really clear on how exactly America's Got Talent is going to fill that Top 36 for the semifinals. The one thing that we can be sure of is that almost half of the 12 acts in the first quarterfinals are going home. I'm kind of with recapper Bill King here, and that number of leaving acts should be just a teensy bit higher. Still, this is the situation we are left with and it is time to make some predictions.   Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-prediction-60739.aspx

America's Got Talent Finale: Who Will Win? (And Who Should Win?)

The 10 remainingacts in Americas Got Talents 10thseason have spent nearly three months pouring their blood, sweat and (in some cases) contents of their stomachs into the competition and in a few hours (9:57/8:57c-ish) , a victor shall be crowned. But before the winner is revealed, lets take a look at the 10 remaining [] http://tvline.com/2015/09/16/americas-got-talent-winner-season-10-finale-predictions-photos/

'America's Got Talent' Finale Prediction: Who Will Win Season 10?

Going into the Top 10, this final prediction was easily the hardest I had to do all season, mostly because my possibility of error was so great. I had to choose one of 10 to win. This was a far cry from the simple ease of choosing almost half of a group of 12 to go home.   Yet as the night progressed, one guy rose to the top. (I'd love to use a more gender neutral term, but the America's Got Talent Top 10 is a complete sausage fest, though that's an issue for a whole other time.) My man to win it all might not have completely sealed it up. There's a few frontrunners with him and even a few possible wild cards who can steal it away. This is my best guess as well as a rundown of his biggest (and smallest) competition.   Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-finale-pre-57503.aspx

'America's Got Talent' Predictions: Which 5 Acts Will Advance to the Top 10?

Howard called season 10 of America's Got Talent "the season of the magician." On the first night of the semifinals, though, it was the night of the musician. Not in terms of memorable "wow" moments, but in terms of volume. Of the 11 acts that were in the first group, six performed a musical number.   While that might not have been exactly fair to the singers left in the competition, it made my job much easier. The glut of singers and musical performers separated the contestants quite nicely. It was easy to judge the musicians all in one group and the other variety acts in another. Doubtless, America will do the same when casting their votes. Some of the musicians rose to the top, but it was the variety acts who dominated. It's the comedians, magicians and dancers who are more likely to earn those coveted top five spots that Howie would not stop mentioning. These are my best guesses for who those five acts heading to the Top 10 will be, as well as the identities of the bottom six heading home.   Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-prediction-57405.aspx

'America's Got Talent' Predictions: Who Are the Final Members of the Top 21?

The live rounds of America's Got Talent went out not with but a whimper. Maybe I was just in a mood while watching the third and final live rounds but I couldn't help but feel that America's Got Talent had saved its least for last. The contestants weren't bad, you don't make it this far in the competition by being bad. (Well... DADitude did make this far.) OK let me revise my statement. You don't make it this far in America's Got Talent if your act isn't named DADitude.   A lot of the non-DADitude acts were just a smidge off. There were at least one or two flaws in the majority of acts that could very well prove disastrous to their voting counts. There were a couple of stand-out acts as well but more duds than souring successes all around. I could easily see one or two of the acts that performed last night being in the final five but the five going home in the final quarterfinals were harder for me to pin down. Here are my best guesses for who is staying and who is leaving on America's Got Talent in the last round of quarterfinals.   Read More...   http://www.buddytv.com/articles/americas-got-talent/americas-got-talent-prediction-57354.aspx
