Angel City Chorale: This 160-person choir was the Golden Buzzer act of guest judge Olivia Munn. They delivered a soulful rendition of “This Is Me,” the powerful anthem from the film “The Greatest Showman.”
Vicki Barbolak: This stand-up took center stage with another self-deprecating set of jokes focused on her dating life.
Courtney Hadwin: Howie Mandel’s Golden Buzzer act closed out the show with a rocking version of the James Brown soul classic “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag.
Junior New System: This all-male dance group from the Philippines once again ended their energetic performance wearing high heels.
Shin Lim: The magician did a trick with a continuous flow of a deck of cards disappearing and reappearing, changing into a different deck that spelled out “Vote For Shin Lim America’s Got Talent.”
Amanda Mena: Mel B‘s Golden Buzzer sang a remixed version of Pink‘s song “What About Us” that added Spanish lyrics to the English ones.
We Three: This trio of siblings performed another original song, which Simon Cowell told them was a step down from their previous efforts and deemed them to be a “support band” not a headliner.
