'America's Got Talent' season 14: From a hoop aerialist to mind-boggling contortion, here are the acts that deserve a wildcard entry
While not all the contestants can make it through to the wildcard spots, there are few acts that impressed the judges compared to the others and even managed to become fan favorites.
We're just on the second week of Judge Cuts on 'America's Got Talent' season 14 and till date, we have seen a total of 36 acts perform out of which only 14 made it through to the live shows that will take place Dolby Theatre.
The remaining 22 contestants were sadly sent home packing, even though some of them were really good acts. However, not all is lost for most of the contestants who were sent home after the Judge Cuts. These contestants can still get a foot into the competition through the AGT wildcard spots that are available in the quarter-finals.
While not all the contestants can make it through to the wildcard spots, there were a few acts that impressed the judges compared to the others and even managed to become fan favorites.
Here is a rundown of three acts, we would like to see come back to the show via the wildcard spots:
Matthew Richardson - Hoop Aerialist
Matthew Richardson wowed the judges with his audition. He won four yeses and was back again during the first week of Judge Cuts. For his performance during the Judge Cuts, he created a routine to honor his late father using a hoop designed like a dream catcher. After he quit his job and went to school for acrobatics, he revealed that his dad had supported him throughout his journey.
His performance was easily the most emotional and heartbreaking act of the week. The judges gave Richardson a standing ovation after his performance. But sadly, it wasn't enough to make it through to the live shows. After he was eliminated fans were left devastated and any hope of him of coming back to the show through a wildcard spot will be most welcomed by fans.
Izzy and Easton - Dancers
Las Vegas residents, 11-year-old Izzy, and 14-year-old Easton auditioned for AGT and won everyone's hearts with their emotional depiction of the sorrow and joy of a sister whose brother goes to war. These childhood friends have been dancing together for over five years now. Julianne Hough even revealed that at just 11-years-old Izzy was wearing on pointy shoes which meant she was really good for her age. After their performance, though the duo received a standing ovation from the judges they didn't make it through to the live shows. We would like to see what more they bring to the stage if they are chosen as the wildcard entry.
Adem Show, the contortionist trio had earlier impressed the judges and audience with their precise and gravity-defying performance during the auditions. They won a unanimous vote and moved on to the Judge Cuts. Performing in front of the judges again, they created a routine based on the movie 'A Night At The Museum'. Though it looked effortless, it surely wasn't easy. But sadly it wasn't enough to grant them a spot in the live shows, and we hope they make it in through the wildcard spot, cause their act sure was unique.
'America's Got Talent' season 14 airs every Tuesday night on NBC. Check your local listings for more information.
