'America's Got Talent' Performance Rankings: The Fourth 12 Acts

Our rankings for the fourth 12 acts to perform in the quarter-finals of America's Got Talent season 6. #12 The Kinetic King Oh no! This was such an unintentional disaster. It was even worse than the Rhinestone Ropers, whose horse would not cooperate. I've never seen something go so horribly wrong on live television before.

VIDEO: America's Got a Train Wreck

Some say that the reason to watch NASCAR is for the potential crashes. If you watch America's Got Talent using the same principle, it must have been greatly satisfying to see Tim "Kinetic King" Fort. He introduced himself as "the greatest creator of chain reactions gadgets and exploding objects in the 17 known universes," but created nothing but a mess during his semifinal audition. His domino design of sticks and various other objects that took a whopping 36 hours to set up failed to ignite properly and the chain proved nonreactive. Watch the sadness below... if you can stomach it... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Americas-Talent-Kinetic-King-1036014.aspx?rss=breakingnews

iLuminate Dance Troupe Earns Standing Ovation Closing Out 'AGT' (VIDEO)

The final round of the quarterfinals on 'America's Got Talent' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC) brought twelve more acts before America. Being live television means things can go wrong, and the show started off with one of the worst mishaps an act has yet seen on the show. The Kinetic King opened the show with a trick that simply didn't go off right. With the types of stunts he does, he basically gets one shot and if it doesn't work, it's all over. The show wrapped, though, with iLuminate. With perhaps a slight nod to Fighting Gravity, this dance troupe incorporates darkness and lights on the dancers to create interesting visuals and illusions. It's certainly unique enough to be remembered and earned a standing ovation. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/02/iluminate-dance-troupe-earns-standing-ovation-agt-video/

'America's Got Talent': Team iLuminate, Charles Peachock wow

We are down to our last quarterfinal group, "America's Got Talent" fans. Will it be the best one yet? We can only hope.1. The Kinetic KingPresumably he has to go first because it takes so long for him to set up, which right away should tell us he is not right for this show. He'd get in like one 15-second act per hour-long show or something. Anyway, tonight (after 36 hours of set up) he sets off his train of tongue depressors and it all goes horribly wrong. Aw, geez. After all that time! That is so sad. Poor Kinetic King. Moving on.2. Zuma ZumaThey are really playing up the Kenya thing tonight,w ith a video background of the African plains and tribal music and makeup/outfits. The tumbling and pole tricks are pretty amazing. I think they are much more entertaining than the dance troupes that made the quarterfinals and they scream Vegas show, very... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/08/americas-got-talent-team-iluminate-charles-peachock-wown.html

'America's Got Talent' Backstage Report: Stevie Nicks Feared Piers Morgan Would 'X' Her

It's not just the amateur and semi-pro acts that appear on 'America's Got Talent' that fear they'll receive a dreaded, ear-piercing strike from trigger-happy judge Piers Morgan. Musical guest Stevie Nicks confided to AOL TV that she, too, thought Morgan might give her a red X when she was performing on last night's results show. Nicks was there to promote her upcoming tour (last year's 'AGT' winner Michael Grimm will open for her) and she sang two songs including one from her latest album 'In Your Dreams.' Morgan not only didn't not buzz Nicks, he even gave her a standing ovation. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/07/28/americas-got-talent-backstage-report-stevie-nicks-feared-pie/

Professor Splash Jumps Into 12" of Water From Three Stories Up on 'AGT' (VIDEO)

This season on 'America's Got Talent' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC), we've seen a lot more of the novelty acts making it through. That's because we've been treated to some of the most bizarre and impressive stunts in this category, like the lunatic who calls himself Professor Splash. We say lunatic affectionately, because we know we'd have to be crazy to jump off a three-story building into a kiddie pool of water. But Professor Splash does it like it's no big thing, leaving the judges speechless and stunned. "To watch a man belly flop into 12" of water from that height," Piers Morgan said. "Absolutely sensational." http://www.aoltv.com/2011/07/27/professor-splash-jumps-from-three-stories-up-agt-video/

'America's Got Talent': Lys Agnes, POPLYFE, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. are stand-outs

For the third quarterfinal group on "America's Got Talent," we have POPLYFE and Lys Agnes, who I am very much looking forward to, and Professor Splash and that Mauricio guy, who I am not so much looking forward to.1. Summerwind SkippersThis is a neat act, but it doesn't scream Vegas show to me. Their first live show is much better than what they've done before, but it's still just a jump-rope act. It's a very good jump-rope act, but ... still. I do think these guys beat the hell out of every dance group on the show except maybe Miami All-Stars. They still might deserve to advance, though, based on how the other acts do. The judges are complimentary.2. SH'Boss BoysOK, it's not even fair to critique these lil' buggers because they're so damn cute I want to kidnap them. I shall put them in the house where I keep Kaitlin Maher and Lil' T.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/07/americas-got-talent-lys-agnes-poplyfe-landau-eugene-murphy-jr-are-stand-outs.html
