America’s Got Talent finalists: Fighting Gravity, Prince Poppycock versus two singers

America’s Got Talent 5 has its final four: Fighting Gravity, Prince Poppycock, Michael Grimm, and Jackie Evancho, and they’ll compete in next week’s finale. That means magician Michael Grasso, singer Taylor Matthews, singing sisters Christina and Ali, dancers Anna and Patryk, and dance group Studio One Young Beast Society were all eliminated.

The most amazing thing about all of this is that my two favorite acts are in the final two, and usually I give up on this show because the auditions seem to go on for freakin’ ever, and my favorite Vegas-style acts get eliminated in favor of American Idol rejects with sad stories. This season, the two acts I’ve liked watching more than any others made it through: Prince Poppycock and Fighting Gravity. And I think one of them may just be able to pull off a win against the singers.

While Prince Poppycock’s performance this week was good, I thought his insanely crazy awesome version of Bohemian Rhapsody was far more entertaining:

And you must watch Fighting Gravity’s performance from this week, which was awesome, from the lasers to the music:
