‘America’s Got Talent’ Judge Cuts on July 17: 20 acts compete but only 7 make it through to live shows

The first of four episodes of “America’s Got Talent” dedicated to the judge cuts phase of the competition airs on July 17. Over the course of the previous six audition episode of “AGT,” the four judges — Mel B, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel — said yes to nearly 100 acts. Now they must cut these down to just three dozen who will get a chance to perform on the live shows that start on August 14.

Helping them make these tough decisions on July 17 is actor Ken JeongAs with the regular panel, he also gets a Golden Buzzer that will send an act straight through to the quarter-finals. We have done a little digging and found out which 20 acts appear on the first episode in this round of the reality competition series.

Of these, only seven will survive and continue on in their quest to be crowned the season 13 winner. After reviewing the list below, be sure to sound off in the comments section with your pick for the best of this bunch. And let us know what you think so far of the 2018 edition of “AGT.”
