America's Got Talent: Quarterfinal Two

The next 12 acts performed Tuesday night. Only four will advance

Who Should Advance?

1. Alice Tan Ridley
The mother of Oscar-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe of "Precious" was easily the best performance of last night. She's the best singer in the field and is a threat to win it all.

2. Mona Sampath Dance Company
Bollywood meets Hollywood with this aesthetically-pleasing dance group, which mixes traditional Bollywood dancing and modern hip-hop (such as the Black-Eyed Peas last night). They were perfectly in sync and even got applause from judge Piers Morgan.

3. Michael Grimm
This soulful male vocalist from Mississippi benefits from the lackluster episode last night. He passes this time but not sure he will make it next.

On The Bubble:

4. Wreckless
The street dance group chose a different style that involved elaborate costumes and choreography. However they weren't as edgy or exciting last night, and that may cost them.

5. Antonio Restivo
This pyrotechnical illusionist screams Vegas. There was lots of fire but little on the illusion side. He is a tremendous showman and that might get him through.

6. AscenDance
A unique rock-wall-climbing dance act is very poetic and graceful. The married couple added two people to the act and delivered an emotional performance to Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars." They deserve to make it through.

7. Hannibal Means
He probably creeps so many people out that I doubt he will advance, but he has an amazing voice, proven last night by his cover of "Circle of Life." It will be interesting to see if he found an audience.


8. Lil Chris
9. Cheer SF
10. John Beatty, "The Strong Man"
11. Iron Horse
12. Ronith
