'America's Got Talent:' Sebastien De La cruz will return for wildcard round next week!
Last night on America's Got Talent, four of the twelve YouTube acts on the show advanced to the semifinals--but the real good news came at the very end of the episode. In anticipation of next week's wildcard round (the moment everyone has been waiting for!), each judge revealed which acts they think should get another shot. And I am so thrilled to say that two of my FAVORITE acts will now be returning to the stage: adorable 10-year-old mariachi singer, Sebastien De La Cruz, and the surprising soulful goth singer, Andrew de Leon!
As you all know, I was pretty much devastated when De La Cruz, aka Sebastien El Charro de Oro, was eliminated a few weeks ago. In fact, I still don't understand that decision. He's just so talented, not to mention so unbelievably cute! That's why I was really happy to hear that judge Howie Mandel chose him as one of his wildcard picks. Now, he has the second chance he deserves to make it into the semifinals...and who knows? If he performs well, he could escape elimination this time around!
Mandel also chose another of my top picks and fan favorite, de Leon. The 19-year-old Marilyn Manson look alike shocked the world during his first audition when he opened his mouth to reveal a beautiful operatic voice that proves his tough exterior is not what it seems. Personally, I am so gratified to see de Leon return because he is a genuine talent. I mean, anyone who has the ability to give me goosebumps and bring the audience to tears (which de Leon did more than once!) definitely deserves another shot.

Now, I just hope that both contestants cast aside their nerves and take advantage of this second chance by performing to the best of their abilities. They are so talented and I can't wait to see them sing again, first in the wildcard round and then hopefully, in the semifinals!
