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

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 4th 2011 1:05AM
Adam Levin & Maroon 5, 'America's Got Talent'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.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

The first group through was the dance troupe Fatally Unique, which came as a huge surprise for them. Perhaps a little more shocking was when Zuma Zuma and Yellow Design Stunt Team were brought out together. Would both acts go through as we've seen before?

Unfortunately, it looked like that spill cost the Yellow Design Stunt Team, whereas Zuma Zuma will be dancing and smiling in the next round. The next group was a no-brainer as it included Team iLuminate, which obviously made it through.

Kinetic King was the last act elimianted by Nick Cannon, leaving the judges to choose between juggler Charles Peachock, who gave a very entertaining and musical performance, and stand-up comic and impressionist Melissa Villasenor.

With two votes to one, Villasenor was moved into the semifinals where she can fight a long, uphill battle toward being the first stand-up comic to win 'AGT' (ventriloquism is a different act!).

Do you think she has a chance? Who would you have sent through instead of one of these acts?

I don't think the show is rigged, although it has come to light that the final "pick" by the judges is really them deciding who will make a show of casting the third (and deciding) vote for the final act to move on. For the last couple of weeks Nick has announced that the final two are the 4th and 5th place vote-getters. When the judges confer during the final break, they must already know who finished 4th, and they decide who will cast a "vote" first, who will "vote" for the other act second, then who will announce the "tie-breaker"...

What's really too bad is that certain shows (like the most recent ones) are filled with crappy acts, and some performers who were not as good as some of the previously voted-off acts (like from the first and perhaps second weeks), make it through...

Mindless summer entertainment... Keep it in context.
So happy that Sam B is gone. The fact that he survuved as long as he did makes me really dislike Howie.

I liked Maroon 5 long before 'The Voice'. You may like local garage bands better, but they are not this band or any other really good band, because obviously they didn't perform and they don't have major hits, otherwise, you'd probably say the same thing about them. Live is, of course, different because the acoustics are different. But I am sure you already knew that....

Boy, is this fixed or what. How they put all four of these differently talented groups together, except for the donut head, is beyond belief. This is so one sided. I'll never watch this fixed show again.

They put together the groups with one winner and the rest losers based on votes in order to have a show. It is like that in every show where call-in votes are used to vote people the best.

AGT could very well be fixed (who knows?), but the fact that groups are brought out together doesn't mean at all that they were in direct competition only with each other. All acts are voted on by telephone or computer, then are grouped together just for the winner to be announced. If you think the show is fixed and don't want to watch it, I think you should do so for some other reason than your mistaken understanding of what the announcement groupings represent.
