In the nature of any TV talent competition, America's Got Talent has featured so many eliminations over the years that have been very difficult to watch. Of course, not all of our favorite acts can make it to the finale, but these 10 were particularly hard to swallow.\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=c_pvtK7_1xU\n America's Got Talent Season 12 Quarter-Finals 1 results \n\n\n\nFreckled Sky - Season 10 Quarter-Finals\n\n\n\nSeason 10 started out really well for this dance duo, with them receiving Howard Stern\u2019s Golden Buzzer. However, they ended up on the bubble in the quarter-finals and ultimately lost the judges\u2019s choice verdict. What made this moment extra-sad was the fact that not only were Freckled Sky eliminated, they disappointed Howard so much that he didn\u2019t even vote for his own Golden Buzzer pick to stay.\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=VxZwpEmBOyg\n Results Quarter Finals Bello Nook Billy & Emily England America's Got Talent 2017 -Round 1\n\n\n\nBello Nock, Puddles Pity Party, and Just Jerk - Season 12 Quarter-Finals\n\n\n\nCircus performer\u00a0Bello Nock, sad clown singer\u00a0Puddles Pity Party, and dance group\u00a0Just Jerk\u00a0were all fan-favorites during the Season 12 Judge Cuts, but were eliminated in the quarter-finals. It\u2019s fairly common to see acts hyped up before the live shows only to lose out on the votes during them, but these three were\u00a0all eliminated in the same episode. Talk about a triple gut-punch.\n\n\n\nMochi - Season 13 Quarter-Finals\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=RPK_6QRstwE\nAmerica's Got Talent Season 13 Quarter-Finals 1 results\n\n\n\nAnother quarter-finals cut, Season 13 contestant\u00a0Mochi\u00a0was a Diabolo performer, which is\u00a0extremely\u00a0rare to see on these shows. This one is a heart breaker because regardless of how the at-home audience voted, it was clear how much he was absolutely\u00a0adored\u00a0by the studio audience. If you listen carefully you can hear them chanting his name in the background before both save results were announced! (Also those tears!)\n\n\n\nThe Sacred Riana - Season 13 Quarter-Finals\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=x15P1MW9i1A\n America's Got Talent Season 13 Quarter-Finals 2 results \n\n\n\nWorldwide\u00a0Got Talent\u00a0fans were hyped when they found out\u00a0Asia\u2019s Got Talent\u00a0winner\u00a0The Sacred Riana\u00a0would be competing on the American version. But as it turned out, there seemed to be a cultural difference between the two audiences. The American crowd just didn\u2019t seem to\u00a0\u201cget\u201d Riana\u2019s style of horror magic, and she was eliminated in the quarter-finals.\n\n\n\nThe Sacred Riana fan? Did you know The Sacred Riana will star in her own movie\n\n\n\nSergey and Sasha - Season 13 Judge Cuts\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=V0JeGzLEj9I\n America's Got Talent Season 13 Judge Cuts 4 results \n\n\n\nSeeing a great act eliminated in the first round of live shows is tough, but seeing a great act eliminated before the live shows is straight-up heartbreaking. Sergey and Sasha performed some fun father-daughter balancing acts in the Season 13 auditions and Judge Cuts rounds, but were ultimately eliminated at the end of the latter.\n\n\n\nFortunately, their story didn\u2019t end there. The duo were later invited to compete on Britain\u2019s Got Talent: The Champions, and made it to the finals!\n\n\n\nSteven Brundage - Season 11 Judge Cuts \n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=gSSVqGaigno\n America's Got Talent Season 11 Judge Cuts 2 results \n\n\n\nRubix-cube magician Steven Brundage wowed AGT fans with his audition and Judge Cuts performances, and fans were heartbroken to learn of his elimination in the latter round. However, he ended up becoming a wildcard act for the live shows!\n\n\n\n Steven Brundage - Semi-Finals\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=P6c-OLDSMtM\n America's Got Talent Season 11 Semi-Finals 2 results \n\n\n\nSteven breeze through the first live round with flying colors, but in the semi-finals he found himself up for the Dunkin\u2019 Save with contortionist Sofie Dossi and juggler Viktor Kee. Seeing this trio on the bubble together was especially heartbreaking because they had clearly grown close over the course of the competition so the elimination would have been sad regardless of who went home, but it was ultimately Steven who lost out on the finals.\n\n\n\nEric Jones and Colin Cloud - Season 12 Semi-Finals\n\n\n\nSince we\u2019re on the subject of magic, we have to talk about magician Eric Chien and mentalist Colin Cloud. These guys were the last two magic acts standing when the semi-finals rolled around, but by the time they were over, both were gone.\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=jOW77WIBus4\n America's Got Talent Season 13 Semi-Finals 2 results \n\n\n\nWhat\u2019s kind of crazy about the situation here is that their respective AGT journeys followed a very similar trajectory: they made it through auditions and Judge Cuts without any issues, ended up on the bubble in the quarter-finals, and lost the judges\u2019s choice in the semi-finals. What made it extra- sad was that their eliminations meant there would be no magic acts in the finals that season (though the genre was soon \u201credeemed\u201d with the double-victory of card magician Shin Lim on both Season 13 and The Champions Season 1.)\n\n\n\nEric Chien - Season 14 'AGT' Semi-Finals\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=bt5_oJL9nGc\n America's Got Talent Season 13 Semi-Finals 1 results \n\n\n\nAnother magician eliminated in the semi-finals, it was tough to watch Eric go because he had been favored to reach the finals and potentially place very high for most of the season. But unfortunately, there were a couple of roadblocks standing in his way - Shin Lim\u2019s enormous shadow and Simon Cowell\u2019s disdain for his style of magic - that ultimately overpowered him before he could get there.\n\n\n\nDo you think Eric Chien was doomed to lose because of Shin Lim's massive impact?\n\n\n\nCharlotte Summers - Season 14 Quarter-Finals\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=SQ9hivZ79H0\n America's Got Talent Season 14 Quarter-Finals 2 results \n\n\n\nIn a particularly strong season for vocal talent, Charlotte Summers was one of the best of them all. That\u2019s why it was so hard to see her eliminated in the quarter-finals while many singers who weren\u2019t as strong as her advanced. Sometimes you just end up on a week with a stacked lineup, and that\u2019s what unfortunately happened to Charlotte and did her in. (Well, that and Simon\u2019s comments.)\n\n\n\nDarci Lynne and Courtney Hadwin - The Champions Season 1\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=2DPzpQKTvjk\n America's Got Talent: The Champions Episode 2 results \n\n\n\nOn a show like The Champions, it was inevitable there would be some tough eliminations, but the one-two punch of losing both Darci and Courtney after seeing them both make it to the top three of their episode only to lose out to\u00a0Cristina Ramos\u00a0was both surprising and sad. Fortunately, we did get one of them back in the competition when Darci was chosen as a wildcard for the finals and finished the season as runner-up, ahead of Cristina who had previously beaten her out for a spot in the finale.\n\n\n\nAnd how can we forget, V Unbeatable in the finale last season, were you sad about them? \n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=CPC50mbvW74\n\n\n\n\nWho's AGT elimination made you the saddest?
