Michael Grimm advances on 'America's Got Talent'

Waveland's Michael Grimm has made it through another round of "America's Got Talent," moving on to the semi-finals in voting by the audience.

Grimm, who sang Al Green's "So Tired of Being Alone" Tuesday night, advanced along with soul singer Alice Tan Ridley and acrobat wall-climbers AscenDance and magician Antonio Restivo, who advanced on votes from judges Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne. Judge Piers Morgan voted for dance troupe Wreckless.

The four acts from Wednesday night will join 19-year-old Georgia singer Nathaniel Kenyon, glow-in-the-dark dancers Fighting Gravity, singing sisters Christina & Ali, and young hip-hop dancers Future Funk in the semifinals of Season 5.

Twelve more acts will vie for four more semifinal slots next week.
