Which ‘America’s Got Talent’ Acts Made It Through?
Tuesday night’s audience vote determined the first five acts to make it through to the Semifinals. 1aChord, Gina Brillon, Jimmie Herrod, Peter Rosalita, and Dustin Tavella went straight through thanks to America’s vote.
That means we had to say goodbye to Gangstagrass, Sethward, Matt Johnson, and the Canine Stars.
Who Won the Instant Save Vote?
The acts who came in sixth, seventh, and eight place in the overnight vote were eligible for the Instant Save. Beyond Belief Dance Company, Kabir Singh, and Madilyn Bailey were eligible.
Voting was open during the show, and fans ultimately chose to send Kabir Singh through to the Semi-finals. The judges then had to decide which of the remaining two acts should join him. The judges were tied, so the decision came down to which act had the most votes from viewers. That was Madilyn Bailey, meaning Beyond Belief Dance Company was eliminated.

Wednesday night’s show also featured a performance from Season 15 America’s Got Talent winner Brandon Leake. The poet performed with the With Our Words Youth Poetry Collective. They spoke about the city of Stockton, California, earning a standing ovation from the judges.
After the performance, Leake told Crews that he has a new album coming out soon, as well as a movie in December. Leake is also expecting a child in just two weeks. As Crews announced, Leake will be joined by this year’s winner in a Las Vegas show this November.
