Diavolo - America's Got Talent

This week Diavolo was in danger of going home on America’s Got Talent, but thanks to the Dunkin Save, they were able to slide on through to the Finals. Here’s the scoop…

At the beginning of the show Tyra Banks announced that Colin Cloud, Kechi, and Diavolo were fourth, fifth, and sixth place, so they would be at the mercy of the Dunkin Save. This meant that America needed to rush to their nearest device and vote once again for their favorite act. When the three groups were brought back on stage, Kechi took the 4th spot, which left the judges to choose between Diavolo and Colin Cloud for fifth. It was a seemingly easy decision for the judges...they unanimously chose Diavolo! Now the dance group is that much closer to winning the competition.  

The troupe’s last performance was out of this world (literally - it was space themed). So it will be interesting to see how they take it to the next level. New props, more danger… who knows? One thing is for sure, this group would be a perfect fit for the Vegas scene. Diavolo already has a Cirque de Soleil vibe, so transitioning to a Vegas show would be simple. But the truth is, dancers don’t want Diavolo to leave LA! Winning could bring some serious traction to the LA dance scene, but if they win and run off to Vegas, so does their influence.
