Here is a recap of the performances of the 12 acts in the order in which they performed:

Siro-A: A decidedly different act, this dance troupe incorporated video projection that included the faces of judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel to accompany their performance set to high-energy electronic music.  

Alondra Santos: This 13-year-old, who squeaked in when another act dropped out, dazzled with a flamenco song and dance. 

Vita Radionova: Her contortions set against a backdrop of mirror left the audience, at least the male half, gasping.

Triple Threat: This trio had shaky vocals on the Destiny Child track “Say My Name” and left the judges wondering what their names were. 

The Gentlemen: The hip hop dancing duo of tykes, who are all of nine and 12, charmed the audience and the judges. 

Piff the Magic Dragon: This magician’s trick, with a “Game of Thrones” theme, was divisive as it led many to believe his dog was being harmed. 

Benton Blount: The country crooner accompanied himself on guitar and delivered an emotional version of “Say Something” that left the judges saying a lot in his favor. 

Craig and Micheline: The ballroom dance duo took to the floor with a routine set to “Tainted Love” that had the judges loving them. 

Drew Lynch: The stand-up comedian overcame his stutter and delivered a socko routine that included a timely taunt of Piff. 

Showproject: The team of acrobatic gymnasts soared through the air with the greatest of ease and let loose in this intricately choreographed routine set to “Chains.” 

Paul Zerdin: This talented ventriloquist managed to make an old school routine new and fresh by giving his partner, Sam, a chance to solo. How did he do that? 

Samantha Johnson: This chanteuse had the 6,000 people in Radio City Music Hall on their feet as she finished her rendition of “California Dreaming.”

According to current Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by users just like you, Piff the Magic Dragon is the likeliest to make it through. He has leading odds of 23/10. Next up is Benton Blount at 7/2 followed closely by Siro-A at 9/2. 

From there, it is a tight battle for the last four slots.

Currently, Drew Lynch is in fourth with odds of 20/1 and Samantha Johnson and Paul Zerdin are right behind at 25/1.
