Australia’s Got Talent – First Semi-Final
Australia’s Got Talent semi’s kicked off with some good acts and some very ordinary ones. This show is a variety show with a range of different genres shown which is good but out of the nearly 150 acts put through in the heats it was strange some of the ones that got the tick for the semi’s.
Here are the acts:
Swagamama kicked off the show with an impressive dance routine with a medley of songs mixed with good choreography and dance tricks. They must be the favourite to get through this round however being first in a 6.30pm timeslot might disadvantage them.
Natalie and Julia are 10 year olds best friends who both can sing and are super cute. They sang “Think” from The Blues Brother and there was barely a wrong note. Kyle Sandilands said that they should have their own show. You have to wonder if it goes belly up if they will qualify for The Voice Kids?
Darren Carr is a puppeteer and ventriloquist. For me the routine fell flat, but my 9 year thought it was funny. The routine got a lift when Julia Morris came on stage at the end and cracked a joke.
Chantelle and Benji the Roller Skating Duo have been brought back even after their stack in the heats. Dawn and Geri seemed to take fancy to Benji but I suspect this is the last we will see of them.
Louise Kennedy is a comedic opera singer – Miss Nine loved the flatulence aspect of the act. For me she did not hit it out of the ball park.
Aydan who fans of Young Talent Time (yes Miss 9 spotted it and yes she is getting her pocket money this week). He sang a Michel Jackson song. At some points he was a bit pitchy and taking in his performance experience it should have been better. The judges spoke about potential.
The Other Superman – Was heartstoppingly entertaining. Had comedy, athletic tricks and an element of dangerous. Add in the fact he was doing it in a wheelchair was even more amazing.
Scott Carnes – How did this guy get through to the semis? Sure it was funny in the heats but there is not 2 minutes in his crotch thrusting routine. If people think a crap act like this can get you through to the semi’s next year expect a whole lot of twerking.
Highlights – Swagamma, The Other Superman, and Natalie and Julia.
