'America's Got Talent: The Champions' Season 2: Fans call the series a joke after Hans moves to the semifinals
While viewers were ecstatic that Duo Transcend and Dania made it to the semifinals, they were not in favor of Hans making it through
'America's Got Talent: The Champions' Season 2 has revealed its first three semifinalists. While fans are glad that Duo Transcend and Dania Diaz made it through, they are not pleased with Hans getting voted through to the semifinals, saying it was a mistake.
The famed reality TV competition premiered with Season 2 on Monday night, and out of the 40 contestants vying to make it all the way, 10 acts performed and only three made it to the semifinals, with one contestant winning the first golden buzzer this season, making her way directly to the finale.
Terry Crews was back as a host. While Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel returned to their seats as judges, replacing Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union was Heidi Klum and Alesha Dixon.
This season there was a change in the process of voting. Three acts will move on each week to the semifinals, and they will be chosen by superfans NBC has chosen from the 50 states.
Apart from that, one act went to the finale directly through the golden buzzer and this was 13-year-old Angelina Jordan. Her Jazz rendition of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' impressed the judges so much that Heidi Klum couldn't resist but use her golden buzzer.
The other three acts who made it to the semifinals by gaining the most number of votes from superfans were Duo Transcend, the trapeze couple who took everyone's breath away, magician Dania Diaz who told her life story using magic, and Hans who descended from a giant banana while playing the accordion.
While viewers were ecstatic that Duo Transcend and Dania made it to the semifinals, they were not in favor of Hans making it through.
Taking to Twitter, a fan wrote, "@heidiklum #AGTChampions that was a joke putting Hans through instead of someone with talent you lost a viewer for the rest of the shows. You should have just stayed home with your boy toy."
"@AGT #AGTChampions absolutely no way hans should’ve gone through. this shows officially a joke," a fan wrote. Another said, "Lost a viewer tonight putting Hans to the finals was a joke instead of deserving people made a mockery of the talent on the show."
"Honestly. Honestly. Hans being sent to the semis for #AGTChampions makes me want to quit watching all together. I’ll just wait for regular #AGT to come back," a fan wrote.
Another shared, "How the heck did they choose hans over junior creative and jack vidgen, They are amazing, And the judges made the wrong decision tonight #AGTChampions."
