Tyler Butler-Figueroa returns to “America’s Got Talent” to sing on Tuesday’s second quarterfinal. This 11-year-old from North Carolina wowed the judges with his virtuoso violin playing and inspired Simon Cowell to press the Golden Buzzer. That sent the talented Tyler straight through to the live shows.
Tyler joins 11 other acts on this two-hour edition of “AGT,” which will air live on NBC beginning at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT on August 20. These dozen acts are hoping to be among the seven who earn enough votes to make it through to the semifinals, which start in two weeks time.
Among Tyler’s competition on Aug. 20 are two other acts that were good enough to get the Golden Buzzer. The rapper Joseph Allen won over Howie Mandel. And Light Balance Kids, a pint-sized spin-off of the light-up dance troupe that placed third in 2017, earned the respect of guest judge Ellie Kemper.
The other nine acts in contention on Tuesday are:
Robert Finley: Singer
Chris Kläfford: Singer/guitarist
Marina Mazepa: Contortionist
Ndlovu Youth Choir: Chorale group
Nick & Lindsay: Opera singer and danger act
Ryan Niemiller: Stand-up comedian
