The Top 10 “America’s Got Talent” finalists were announced on Wednesday, and shockingly absent from the list was Celine Tam. The 10-year-old girl who was named after Celine Dion wowed audiences week after week with her booming voice. But “AGT” viewers failed to vote for her this week following her performance of “How Far I’ll Go” from “Moana.” Are YOU upset that Laverne Cox‘s Golden Buzzer pick Tam was eliminated one week before the “AGT” Finals? Vote in our poll below.
The writing seemed to be on the wall when the four “AGT” judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — couldn’t agree on what they thought of Tam’s Semifinals performance. Even though the talented tyke sang the “Moana” song flawlessly, only Klum gave Tam a standing ovation. While Cowell noted that this was the perfect song choice and Mandel wished her well, Mel B got booed from the crowd when she declared that the song was too “musical theater.”
With Celine Tam eliminated early on Wednesday’s results show, that paved the way for fellow child singer Angelica Hale to make it through to the Finals. Hale joins singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, singer-songwriter/ukeleleist Mandy Harvey, singer-songwriter/guitarist Chase Goehring, stand-up comedian Preacher Lawson, light-up dance group Light Balance, dog act Sara and Hero, acrobatic dance group Diavolo, singer Evie Clair and singer Kechi as the Top 10 finalists of “AGT” Season 12.
