Last year, the “America’s Got Talent” judges bypassed the three acts (magician Hara, acrobats ThroWings, and singer Ronee Martin) that had just missed out on making the semifinals and chose juggling duo The Passing Zone as the wild card. Will they do the same this year?
If they opt to ignore those acts that almost made it through based on the public vote, that would mean that Angelina Green is out of the running. This little girl with the big voice was up against the gospel choir Greater Works in the third quarterfinal results show and the judges went with the latter, who performed on the first semifinal on Sept. 5.
Green was the Golden Buzzer pick for Heidi Klum, who wept openly when the other judges went with the choir. Could she persuade them to bring Green back for the second semifinal on Sept. 12? Sure, there are other girl singers still in the competition — Darci Lynne Farmer, Angelica Hale and Celine Tam — but each of those had the advantage of performing on one of the earlier quarterfinals.
While Green did not find favor with Mel B, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel, the other two acts that were eliminated during judges choice both went down to defeat only after the panel could not decide and left it to the public vote.
In the first quarterfinal, the hip hop dance group Just Jerk was edged out by singer Yoli Mayor. In the second quarterfinal, the vocal group The Masqueraders was bumped by magician Eric Jones. Both of those acts performed on the first semifinal on Sept. 5 but neither is predicted to make it through to the final.
