Ballet and opera win big at another "Canada's Got Talent" elimination

TORONTO, Ont. – It was another elimination night on “Canada’s Got Talent” and two acts are moving on to the finals.

Eliminations started off quickly as BMX bikers Craz E Crew Stunt Team, singing group One Blood and contortionist Nathan Knowles were all told they would not be moving.

So it was between singers Caitlin Bell and Emilio Dina, and dancers 11-year-old Shale Wagman and The Brat Pack.

Host Dina Pugliese announced who received the most votes and would be moving onto the finals.  

“All hail, Shale Wagman is in the finals!”

Then it was the judges vote as Stephan Moccio, Misha Brugergossman and Martin Short made their choices.

In a two-to-one decision opera singer Emilio Fina was chosen to move on.

Emilio said he is just thrilled to make it to the finals no matter the outcome

“I achieved what I needed to achieve last night, regardless of where I’m going.”

And what does Shale Wagman have planned for the finals?

“I do not know yet so I just wanna keep it a surprise.”
