'America's Got Talent' Backstage Report: Piers Morgan Plans to Bring Back Charles Peachock

Despite getting strikes from two thirds of the judging team on 'America's Got Talent' juggler Charles Peachock made it into the Top Five on last night's results program. It came down to Peachock and impressionist Melissa Villasenor for the fourth act of the night that would advance to the next round and, not surprisingly, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel, who'd both given strikes to Peachock on Tuesday's show, stuck to their guns and threw their support to Villasenor. AOL TV was on the post show press line to speak with the judges, Peachock and other ejected acts to get their reactions to the latest 'AGT' results. Viewers may not have seen the last of Peachock, however. Piers Morgan shared that he's going to throw his wild card vote to the axed juggler.

Maroon 5 'Moves Like Jagger' on 'America's Got Talent' Results Show (VIDEO)

Adam Levine took his act straight from 'The Voice' stage and onto 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC) when he and Maroon 5 entertained the crowd with their new single "Moves Like Jagger." It was a rock-solid performance, and a great way to remind people of Levine and 'The Voice.' To keep the crowd excited on this tense elimination night, Jason Derulo gave the crowd a medley of his singles, but it was all just a distraction from the reality of the evening. Of twelve acts, only four would move on to the semifinals.

'America's Got Talent': Melissa Villasenor vs. Charles Peachock for the last spot

The final quarterfinal results show for "America's Got Talent" should prove interesting. Should Charles Peachock not advance due to the judges' choice at the end, I shall not be recapping anymore - as I will have thrown my laptop through my TV and will have neither machine with which to recap anymore. (Update: *sigh*).The first results group is Taylor Davis, Avery and the Calico Hearts, Frank Miles and Fatally Unique. Only Fatally Unique deserves to advance out of this group, so it's a good thing that's who advances! They are so happy, it brings tears to my eyes. And Piers is so kind to them, really praising how hard they have worked to improve. I will say - I'm surprised Fatally Unique was in the Top 3 vote-getters. I thought they would be in the judges' choice for sure.We'll be skipping over the Howie/Piers "prank" and the Jason Derulo performance, except to say that the...

'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.

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...

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.

'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...

'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.
