'America's Got Talent': Hot Chelle Rae Perform, Four Acts Move On (VIDEO)

Hot Chelle RaeThe second round of quarterfinals is over, and while it wasn't as strong as the first round, there were still several acts deserving of continuing on.

Of the 12 that performed, only four would go on to the next round of 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC). But who would it be?

To pad the hour, we were treated to a great musical performance by Hot Chelle Rae on their huge smash single 'Tonight, Tonight.'

The other guest performance was from an acrobatic troupe called Traces, which could well be a future destination for male pole dancer Steven Retchless. It was breathtaking and something future contenders should pay close attention to.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

As for the results, we're starting to see an interesting trend unfold on 'AGT' this season. While the show normally pushes forward more traditional fare like singing and dancing, that hasn't been as strongly the case this year. In fact, of the four singers this week, only one made it through.

Daniel Joseph Baker proved to be just right for America, securing a spot in the semifinals alongside the shoe-in Silhouettes and the aforementioned Retchless. When it came to the judges' pick, they were forced to pick between the motorcycle stunt team, Smage Bros., and magician Landon Swank.

Both were impressive last night, and it was a split decision. Piers voted for Swank, but both Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel pushed through the more dangerous and exciting Smage Bros. Now we can just hope that next week's batch of 12 performers are closer to the high standard set by the first week's acts.

Were you satisfied with these results? Who would you have liked to see go on in the competition?
