Spoiler alert: This story contains significant details from Wednesday’s “America’s Got Talent” live results show.
The field of potential “America’s Got Talent” winners got smaller Wednesday.
Seven of 12 acts that performed on Tuesday’s live show advanced with the support of viewer votes, with one getting a boost from the judges. Five other acts were eliminated.
With the seven acts that already advanced last week, fourteen performing acts have now qualified for the semifinals. And the competition continues: Twelve more will perform in the third and final quarterfinal round of the NBC talent competition (Tuesday, 8 EDT/PDT), which will yield the last seven competitors for the semifinals.
Wednesday’s celebratory winners were: Voices of Hope Children’s Choir; singer Noah Guthrie; comedian Samuel J. Comroe; singer Glennis Grace; trapeze artists Duo Transcend; teen singer Makayla Phillips; and dance group Da Republik.
Two of the acts made the cut thanks to the Dunkin’ Save, in which three compete for the last two semifinal slots via viewer vote and judges’ consultation during the live show. The three acts up for the Save were Da Republik, Front Pictures and Phillips. Phillips received the most votes, getting the first save. The judges gave the final save to Da Republik.
