TORONTO, March 26, 2012 /CNW/ – Earlier this evening, Canada’s Got Talent fans were introduced to some of the diverse semifinalists who will
compete for the coveted title of Canada’s most talented act in the
thrilling and dramatic ‘Cutdown Episode’ on Citytv. As the
cross-country tour came to an end, judges Martin Short, Measha
Brueggergosman and Stephan Moccio reviewed all of the acts hoping to
advance to the semifinals in an intense and lengthy deliberation. Then,
in an emotional last stand, with no shortage of surprises, host Dina
Pugliese and the judges notified the acts whose journey had ended and
those who are advancing to the semifinals.
With Canada’s overwhelming number of talented performers to choose from,
the judges could not contain the number of semifinalists to just 37.
Subsequently, two additional acts from the You Tube ‘Last Chance
Auditions,’ sponsored by Nissan, will also be included, bringing the
total number of semifinalists to 39. These two acts – the highest
vote-getter and one selected by the judges – will be revealed during
the first live results show on April 3.
The semifinals start with three weeks of over-sized, 70-minute
performance shows – the first on a special date, Monday, April 2 at 8 p.m. local time. The first-ever results show will follow on Tuesday, April 3 at 8 p.m. local time. An encore presentation of the semifinalist reveal will air Sunday,
April 1 at 8 p.m. local time on Citytv. Please visit CanadasGotTalent.com for full broadcast information.
