First Four Acts Through to 'America's Got Talent' Season 7 Semifinal Revealed


The home viewers voted for a father daughter vocal duo, pop-locking brothers and performance painters while the judges voted for a young singer.

On Tuesday, July 3 live broadcast of "America's Got Talent", the first four semifinalists in the seventh season were revealed. Automatically earning the spot in the semifinal due to audience vote are Shanice and Maurice Hayes, a father/daughter vocal duo; The Scott Brothers, pop-locking brothers; and David Garibaldi and his CMYK's, performance painters.

These three captured home viewers' attention after the Monday night performance show of the first group. Judges Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Howard Stern then had to pick between the fourth and fifth vote-getters who deserved a spot on the next round. It came down to Edon, a 12-year-old singer from Chicago, IL, or Todd Oliver, a ventriloquist and dog act from Branson, MO.

"Todd Oliver, you are unique, in the sense that I've never seen ventriloquism done with dogs," Mandel said. "It's unique. I don't know if the material was there but that doesn't mean it couldn't be there, it doesn't mean you couldn't hire a writer, it doesn't mean it couldn't be even more fabulous, and I think people seem to be attracted to what you did. ... But I have to go with what I said on the Today show this morning - for me, Edon is the chosen!"

Stern also voted for Edon, leaving Osbourne in the final decision. But Osbourne did not take long to give her answer. "Absolutely, without a shadow of doubt in my mind, I would have voted for Edon!" she said.

The next group of 12 quarterfinalists will perform on Monday, July 9 episode.
