On Tuesday night, the AGT Judge Cuts for Season 15 finally arrived. Instead of occurring over four weeks, the entire round was contained in just one episode, as we found out which acts will move on to the live shows.
The judges arrived to the outdoor set in their own individual cars. They sat in socially distant chairs and watched the performances on a huge screen. During the night, they had to eliminate many of the acts that made it through auditions.
They talked to various acts via video chat to either eliminate them or let them know they would be going to the live shows. They also chose ten acts to perform again, with only five moving on. Watch the night’s performances below, and find out who made it.
Who’s Moving On To The ‘AGT’ Live Shows?
Some of the acts who were chosen to move on to the live shows include singers Celina and Thomas Day, diabolo duo the Spyros Bros, kid dancer Noah Epps, twin singers Double Dragon, aerialist Alan Silva, and sword swallower Brett Loudermilk. Check out the video above to find out who else will be performing in the live shows.
Simon & Maria
These young salsa dancers from Colombia performed an energetic routine with a spotlight and a disco ball to light up their set. Heidi said they were even better than their last performance, and Simon agreed.
This Scottish hula hooper submitted a video audition. He returned with a funky routine set to Lady Gaga, at one point swinging countless hula hoops around his body at once. Heidi acknowledged how much skill his act takes. Simon called him a “born performer.”
This magician performed from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He connected with Simon to match various photographs with his fellow judges. He also predicted Simon’s answers to several questions. Simon was so impressed, he high fived Max through the screen. Sofia called it “spectacular.”
This singer impressed the judges with her “Redneck Woman” cover in her audition. She returned for the Judge Cuts to sing “Wake Me Up” by Avicii. Simon said she “lit up” and “commanded” the screen.
This stand-up comedian made the judges laugh in his first audition. This time, he performed for a socially distant audience wearing masks outside his garage. He joked about being a dad, and how honest his kids are. Heidi said he’s funny and likable, but Sofia preferred his last performance.
These harmonica-playing brothers returned for Judge Cuts to perform a cover of “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO. Howie admitted he wasn’t a fan of the harmonica until they joined the show. Heidi compared it to a music video.
This singer inspired the judges with his story about getting sober. He returned to sing a cover of “You’ve Got the Love.” Simon told Nolan that he’s made their job really hard, adding jokingly, “I hate you.”
For this British mentalist’s Judge Cuts routine, he met with BGT judge Alesha Dixon. He guessed the person she was thinking about, and even predicted what text she would send. Sofia said she loved “how you command the stage.”
These twin brothers returned after getting a red buzzer from Simon in their audition. They performed “Yummy” by Justin Bieber in a colorful backyard setting, and ended it by jumping in a pool. Sofia called them “super entertaining,” and Simon actually said he liked it, calling them “hilarious.”
This danger act involved several crossbows and a blindfold. The judges were on the edge of their seats watching it. Simon called it one of the “nuttiest” danger acts they’ve ever seen on the show.
At the end of the night, the five acts who were chosen to move on were as follows:
