“America’s Got Talent” aired the first live results show of season 12 on Wednesday (Aug. 16). Seven of the 12 acts that performed on Tuesday’s quarter-final found out that they are moving on to the semi-finals in several weeks time. Do you think that any of these lucky seven is good enough to win the $1 million grand prize?
Read our recaps of their performances and then cast your vote in our poll for the act that you think has the best chance of winning season 12 of “AGT.”
Billy and Emily England: This brother and sister wowed the crowd with their roller-skating routine that defied gravity.
Darci Lynne Farmer: This talented tyke was the star of the very first audition show back in May. At that time, the 12-year-old ventriloquist got Mel B. to press the Golden Buzzer with her signing puppet Petunia. On the live show, she introduced Oscar who was no grouch as he sang of his love for the one-time Spice Girl.
Christian Guardino: This formerly blind singer also got a Golden Buzzer (courtesy of Howie Mandel). However, his performance of the Ed Sheeran song “Make It Rain” on the live show only earned enough votes for a spot in the Dunkin Save where he prevailed.
Angelica Hale: This 10-year-old-singer with an old soul was the Golden Buzzerpick of guest judge Chris Hardwick several weeks ago. She won over viewers on Tuesday with her powerful performance of Zedd‘s hit song “Clarity.”
In the Stairwell: The a capella singing group delivered a Fun‘s “Some Nights.”
Preacher Lawson: A stand-up comedian who has been hoping for his big break for more than a decade got it on Tuesday with a hilarious routine that resonated with viewers.
Yoli Mayor: This soul singer was saved at the end of the evening by the public vote that had preferred her performance of Rag’n’Bone Man‘s song “Human” over the dance routine by Just Jerk.
