NBC could have called Tuesday’s show America’s Got Tiny Talented Singers.
Two contestants in the semi-final episode — Celine Tam, 9, and Angelica Hale, 10 — bookended the show with their larger-than-life vocals. The pint-sized stars were show highlights.
First, Celine sang her version of How Far I’ll Go from Disney’s Moana.
In front of fog, snow and a prop hot air balloon, her smile was almost as big as the notes she held.
And at the end of the episode, Angelica performed a rendition of the David Guetta/Usher song Without You.
Her performance — which included an incredible run and high note — was lit. Yes, the fire helped.
Both young ladies were previously recipients of the Golden Buzzer, which sent them straight through to the live rounds. From the sounds of it, they have a good chance of making it to next week’s finals without the aid of a single judge hitting a button.
Another preteen who stood out in the semi-finals was dancer Merrick Hanna, who showed off his robotic moves and flew.
Speaking of robotic moves, dance crew Light Balance performed in their light-up outfits, complete with a glowing hoverboard. (Yes, stagehands helped out with that stunt.)
AGT is back on at its regular time Wednesday (NBC, 8 ET/PT), where it will reveal the results of viewer votes.
