How to Vote for the ‘AGT’ Wildcard Act Ahead of the Live Shows
Tuesday night marked the final round of auditions on America’s Got Talent Season 17, and it’s time to vote for a wildcard act. At the end of the episode, the judges deliberated to decide which acts should move on to the live shows starting next week. They narrowed 138 acts down to 54, but there’s still one spot open.
How to Vote for the ‘AGT’ Wildcard Act
Four acts are up for America’s vote to decide who receives the wildcard spot in the live shows — Auzzy Blood, Ben Waites, Debbii Dawson, and Jordan Conley. Fans can vote for their favorites now until Friday at 7 a.m. ET.
If you’d like to vote for one or more of these acts, you can do so by downloading the AGT official app, or by visiting the NBC website. You can vote for each act up to 10 times per voting method. Remember that you must be at least 13 years old and live in the United States or Puerto Rico to vote.
The winning act will be an AGT wildcard and join the 54 other acts who have already earned a spot in the live shows, which kick off next Tuesday night. The show is moving to two nights a week, as a results show will air on Wednesday.
1. Auzzy Blood
This sword swallower from Las Vegas shocked the judges with his dangerous routine. He even invited judge Howie Mandel on stage to help him out with the performance. We’ve seen judges pull swords out of people’s throats, but in this case Mandel actually pushed it in. It totally freaked him out.
2. Ben Waites
This singer, who works as a vocal coach, tugged at the judges’ heartstrings with a cover of “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper, sharing how much he loved the song’s “message of hope.” Sofia Vergara was especially moved by Ben’s beautiful performance, as it brought her to tears.
3. Debbii Dawson
This singer comes from a family of musicians. For her audition, she played guitar and sang a unique rendition of “Dancing Queen” by ABBA, showing off a lovely voice. Howie Mandel described her voice as “so sweet and soothing,” while Sofia Vergara said she could listen to it all day.
4. Jordan Conley
This funny comedian made the judges laugh with his stand-up routine. Jordan told stories about his military family and how scary his mom could be when he was growing up. All four judges gave Jordan a standing ovation. Even Simon Cowell got a kick out of the audition, calling him “super super talented.”
