Eighteen acts performed their hearts out in front of the “America’s Got Talent” judges during the third Judge Cuts episode on July 30, but only seven advanced to the live shows at the Dolby Theatre. Of the unfortunate 11 acts who were eliminated by judges Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union, Howie Mandel and Ellie Kemper, which one do YOU think was robbed of a spot in the live shows? Vote in our poll below.
In case you missed the two-hour episode, the seven acts who advanced to the next round based on the judges’ decisions were: singer Carmen Carter, impersonator Greg Morton, tambourinist Gonzo, guitarist Marcin Patrzalek, danger act Nick and Lindsay, singer MacKenzie and Ellie’s Golden Buzzer, Light Balance Kids.

Nearly one dozen talented acts said goodbye on Tuesday night: three singers (Jacob Norton, Ansley Burns and Stephanie’s Child), three acrobats (Andrei & Alexander, Duo Maintenant and Edson & Leon), two animal acts (Ray Underwood & Magic and Melissa Arleth), two dance acts (Revolution and Patrizio Ratto) and an illusionist (Nicholas Wallace).
Young singer Ansley was perhaps the most shocking act to hear a “no” from the judges, particularly as they’d spent a lot of time grooming her. Simon stopped her mid-performance twice — in the original audition and in the judge cuts — because the background track was too loud, and both times she roared back with a powerful a capella version of her song. Perhaps Anlsey might hear her name called in the future as a wild card act?
