WA singer/songwriter *Jonny Taylor *'s stellar run on Australia's Got Talent could be over after a lacklustre performance last night. The 26-year-old, left, performed an original song about his journey as a musician but it wasn't met with the same positive response from the judges as his initial audition.

"I think you had a few nerves tonight," celebrity judge *Dannii Minogue *said.


  • Kyle Sandilands *added: "You're a very, very capable singer-songwriter, you're a great entertainer, I hope that people did warm up to that song on the first hit, I don't think they will but hopefully they give you another chance cos I'd love to see you in the next round."

  • Perth * band *Beside Lights *are the only WA act so far to make it through to the grand final on the Seven show this season.

Taylor made it through to the top 12 on Australian Idol in 2008 and the *Busselton *-born performer now travels the nation working as a full-time musician.

Meanwhile, on last night's show, Taylor's fellow Australian Idol contestant *Chrislyn Hamilton *and her band *Flowers For Midnight *knocked the socks off the judges.

"To me if I was a betting man I'd be betting everything on you, you could definitely take the 250 grand hon," Sandilands said.

At the beginning of the show singer/songwriter *Mark Lowndes *was revealed as the receiver of the most audience votes, sending him straight through to the grand final.

Beatbox champion *Genesis *was then chosen by the judges over bluegrass band *the Pigs *.

Next week's show is the last semi-final and airs Wednesday at 7.30pm on Seven/GWN7.
