Need help sorting through all of the acts still in contention to win “America’s Got Talent” Season 10? We sat down with Gold Derby user (and “AGT” superfan) Tyler The Awesome Guy to get his take on the third group of 12 acts that will perform live from Radio City Music Hall on NBC Tuesday night. After reading his snap judgments below, make your own predictions and you could win our prize of a $100 Amazon gift certificate. It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down and predicting which seven acts will advance to the next round.
Here is Tyler’s analysis of this week’s 12 live acts:
Benjamin Yonattan‘s story alone should get him easy votes.
The Chapkis Dance Family will have to really impress to be in contention.
DADitude! is a poor man’s version of Old Men Grooving from “BGT.”
Freelusion Dance Company should sail through to the next round, but Freckled Sky’s elimination has me a little worried.
There’s already a lot of comedians moving on, so Gary Vider will need to be great in order to be remembered.
Metal Mulisha Fitz’s Army has the bias of being an outdoor/danger act so they could be in trouble.
Mountain Faith Band will hit the country-loving voters right on the nose.
It will all depend on the trick that mentalist Oz Pearlman pulls off.
The Selected of God Choir will probably have a really easy time to going through, especially in this lackluster week.
Stevie Starr, The Professional Regurgitator, is pure variety. Disgusting, but wholly entertaining. He should be fine.
At this early stage, Tyler predicts that the following seven acts will advance to the next round: Freelusion, Benjamin Yonattan, Mountain Faith Band, Stevie Starr, Selected of God Choir, Daniella Mass and Oz Pearlman.

Making your predictions is fun and easy. Just log into your Gold Derby account, or you can register for a free account via Facebook, Twitter or Google.
After logging in, click on the “Predictions” button found at the top-right of every page. That will bring you to a list of every event currently being predicted at Gold Derby — everything from the Emmys and Oscars to “Big Brother” and “So You Think You Can Dance.”
Click on any box and then scroll down to start making your predictions. For each TV show, cast your votes on several different questions relating to the upcoming episode. If you click on the “America’s Got Talent” button, you’ll see something like this:
To vote for who you think will advance to the next round, drag your chosen contestants over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order. Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated.
For example, if the majority of users think Gary Vider will go through, that means he’ll have the best odds and will go to the front of the pack. Conversely, the contestants who don’t receive many predictions have the worst odds and will go to the bottom of the pile.
Remember that coming out on top doesn’t just mean answering that week’s questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don’t take them for granted.
