The “America’s Got Talent” season 15 winner will be one of the 22 acts competing on the semi-finals. These contenders made it through the four weeks of quarterfinals, with the exception of the Wild Cards, who got thrown a lifeline by producers. In that phase of the competition, three acts each week earned a spot in the semifinals on the basis of the overnight public, one more claimed the Dunkin’s Save and another got the judges votes. Scroll through our photo gallery of all 22 acts, and see how they did in the quarterfinals.
You won’t be surprised to see that the Golden Buzzers number among those who made the cut. They were chosen by one of the judges — Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara — or host Terry Crews to skip the Judges Cuts round and go straight to the lie shows. They are: spoken word artist Brandon Leake (Howie’s pick), adult soloist Cristina Rae (Heidi’s pick), child singer Roberta Battaglia (Sofia’s pick), singing group Voices of Our City Choir (Terry’s pick) and dance act WAFFLE Crew (Simon’s pick).
The two live semi-finals are set for Tuesday September 8 and 15 with the results shows the following night. The live final will take place over two nights beginning September 22.
