Reading Time: 3 minutes

On Wednesday night, America’s Got Talent aired the results of the second Semifinals round of Season 16. Eleven acts performed during Tuesday’s show, but only five could move on to the Finals next week. There were certainly a few shockers in the mix.

Host Terry Crews announced the results of the fan vote, which decided the first three acts to move on. Three acts were also up for the Instant Save Vote, and the judges were able to save one act.

Which ‘America’s Got Talent’ Acts Made It Through?

Tuesday night’s audience vote determined the first three acts to make it through to the Finals. Northwell Health Nurse Choir, Brooke Simpson, and Josh Blue went straight through thanks to America’s vote.

That means we had to say goodbye to 1aChord, Kabir Singh, Rialcris, ChapKidz, and Peter Antoniou. They received the least amount of votes from viewers. Simon Cowell said he was “gutted” that ChapKidz didn’t make it through, suggesting that the show should have another wildcard.

There’s no indication that this will happen just because Cowell suggested it. As of now, only 10 acts will compete in next week’s Finals.

Who Won the Instant Save Vote?

The acts who came in fourth, fifth, and sixth place in the overnight vote were eligible for the Instant Save. Léa Kyle, UniCircle Flow, and Victory Brinker were the three acts who were up for the vote. Once again, two Golden Buzzer acts were in the group.

Voting was open during the show, and fans ultimately chose to send Léa Kyle through to the Finals. The judges then had to decide which of the remaining two acts should join her. They chose to send Victory Brinker through, meaning UniCircle Flow was eliminated.


Duo Transcend, Deadly Games Deliver an Incredible Performance

Wednesday’s guest performers were past America’s Got Talent contestants Duo Transcend and Deadly Games, who performed together. Deadly Games showed off some incredible knife and crossbow tricks, while Duo Transcend wowed on the trapeze.

The most amazing moment of the routine came when Aleksandra Kiedrowicz of Deadly Games joined Mary Wolfe-Nielsen and Tyce Nielsen in hanging from the ceiling while Alfredo Silva shot a crossbow between them to hit a balloon. The judges gave them a standing ovation.

Both acts will be performing at the America’s Got Talent show in Las Vegas starting this November.
