While the Top 33 acts of “America’s Got Talent” 2017 have been announced, there are still three wild cards still to be revealed. NBC is remaining mum on the identity of the three wild cards, but that won’t stop us from trying to predict who will earn those coveted slots. Below, see our Top 6 wild card predictions for Season 12 of the long-running reality TV show and then cast your vote in our poll for which eliminated act YOU most want to see return.
Henry Richardson: Despite praising the 15-year-old magician for his trick in which he made a stack of cards in guest judge Seal‘s closed palms turn invisible, the four “AGT” judges decided not to advance him to the live shows. Richardson also impressed the panel by having Heidi Klum sign a playing card and somehow managing to get it to appear inside of a sealed snack.
Maria Popazov: Contortionist Popazov made a huge first impression in her audition, balancing using just her teeth. For her second performance she contorted her body in a clear plastic ball but Simon Cowell hit his buzzer and she was later eliminated. If she were to provide a better visual performance for the live shows she could be a real contender.
Jeki Yoo: During his close-up magic trick, Yoo asked guest judge Laverne Cox to sign her name on the 10 of Hearts. Then, no matter how many times Yoo proceeded to shuffle the deck, Cox’s card kept appearing underneath the golden egg on the judges’ table. Yoo’s quirky laughter and excited personality kept everyone smiling the entire time, so we’re bummed he didn’t make it.
Shemika Charles: She wowed the judges and the audience with her unique limbo act in her audition. But for whatever reason, the judges looked unenthused when Charles upped the ante by adding fire and plate-spinning in her Judge Cuts performance and she was cut. We think she has something truly special up her sleeve for a live show.
Bello Nock: While he appears a bit silly on the surface, Nock is actually an extremely talented stunt man. Whether he’s swinging from a high-up poll or being shot out of a cannon over a helicopter, we’re constantly fearing for his safety. Hmm, on second thought, maybe it’s not such a bad thing that he was eliminated early; at least he’s still alive!
Marisa McKaye: Singer McKaye’s audition was not televised, but her Judge Cut performance of Martina McBride‘s “A Broken Wing” showed true potential. The 12-year-old was one of few child singers to not make the live shows, but she should get at least one more chance to prove she deserves a spot.
