Sage, Baruch and Levi are voted off America's Got Talent

September 19th 2008

Reaching the TOP 10 on America's Got Talent would be an accomplishment The Wright Kids would not soon forget, but now, they had to forget about TOP 10 and think about TOP 5. Their next song would be ABC, a 70's pop hit by the Jackson 5. They would have to learn this new song quickly so they could perform it for millions of television viewers in less than a week.

Challenged by sickness, days slipped away before Levi could practice the new song. After plenty of rest and prayers, Levi finally recovered and started feeling like his old self again. With everyone now onboard, The Wright Kids were ready for action.

Elevated stages and cannon fired streamers were exciting additions to the kids' TOP 10 performance. After their ABC performance, judges gave positive reviews. "You have done your parents proud" said Piers Morgan and David Hasselhoff added "You've obviously got talent".

The following day, The Wright Kids would return to the AGT stage for the TOP 5 results show. Again, the kids were one of the first two acts called to the center of the stage. This time, however, Jerry Springer announced Nuttin But Stringz would be in the TOP 5. Jerry and the judges anguished over the results and were very consolatory. "I'm gonna come and see you at your ice cream parlor", said Jerry.
