The second round of AGT quarterfinals for Season 14 came to a close with Wednesday night’s results. Seven of Tuesday’s 12 acts moved on to the semifinals. Notably, last night’s show featured what may have been the best and worst performances in AGT history.
Tonight also marked judge Howie Mandel’s 10th anniversary on the show. As a tribute, Simon Cowell debuted a billboard celebrating Howie — but mostly celebrating himself. Check it out below.
‘AGT’ Results: The Top 5
These acts were sent straight through to the semifinals, having received the most votes from America’s viewers.
Light Balance Kids
Considering Howie called V.Unbeatable’s performance the best in AGT history, it’s a good thing America voted them through. There was a confusing moment in which it seemed that Robert Finley had been eliminated with Nick & Lindsay. However, host Terry Crews called them back and announced that Robert was through.
The Bottom 4
These acts received the least amount of votes from AGT viewers, immediately eliminating them from the competition without the chance at a live save or the judges’ choice.
Nick & Lindsay
The Sentimentalists and Nick & Lindsay had two of the weakest performances from Tuesday night, so their elimination doesn’t come as much of a surprise. (In fact, Simon called Nick & Lindsay’s act the worst live performance in AGT history.)
‘AGT’ Results: The Dunkin’ Save
These acts came in 6th, 7th, and 8th place. Viewers were given a half-hour vote to choose which of the three acts they wanted to save.
Ndlovu Youth Choir
America voted to send Chris Kläfford through to the semifinals. Chris said he was “at a loss for words” after being saved. The judges then had the opportunity to choose one of the remaining two Dunkin’ Save acts to send through to the next round.
Gabrielle Union voted for Ndlovu Youth Choir. Julianne Hough voted for Charlotte Summers. Simon voted for Ndlovu Youth Choir. Howie made it a tie by voting for Charlotte, so the act with the most viewer votes went through. That act is Ndlovu Youth Choir.
The Return Of Susan Boyle!
It’s been 10 years since Susan Boyle first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent. After appearing on AGT: The Champions earlier this year, Susan returned to the stage tonight to once again perform “I Dreamed a Dream.” Susan’s performance also featured a brief highlights reel of her time on BGT.
