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.
