Top 10 on “America’s Got Talent” is set.

Wednesday’s results show revealed the final acts that went on to the finals after “voting was the closest it was all season,” said host Terry Crews at the top of the show.

But before we get to the results, let’s talk about one of the greatest actions in the world: BTS. The K-pop group brought the warmth of Universal Studios Hollywood’s famous back with their No. 1 hit “Dyanmite”, BTS ‘first English-language single.

The results also show guest appearances from “AGT” royalty, including mentalist Colin Cloud, magician Shin Lim, bay man Darci Lynne Farmer and reigning champion Kodi Lee.

And now Lee is ready to send the torch to the next “AGT” champion, who will be crowned in just one week.

Five actions moved one step closer to winning $ 1 million, while six others had their dreams smashed. Sofía Vergara said: “It’s going to be hard to say goodbye to some of these amazing, amazing artists.”

Here’s what happened:

Fans’ choice

The three actions that received the most votes advanced automatically.

Singer Cristina Rae, Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer winner, was the first to advance. On Tuesday, Rae dedicated an emotional performance of Cynthia Erivo’s “Jump” to her son, Jeremiah.

“We’ll end this journey together,” Klum exclaimed. “I’m so excited for you. You’re a huge inspiration to so many, including your little son who’s watching.”

Daneliya Tuleshova quickly joined Rae in the safe zone. The teenager held back her tears as she thanked “America for your votes. I’m so happy.”

Vergara advised the young singer to remain true to herself in the finale and said: “She knows what she’s doing. She’s already a star.”

Acrobatic trio Bello Sisters, who joined via satellite from Germany due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, went ahead. The sisters said moving on to the finals is “beyond anything we’ve ever dreamed of.”

Mandel said, “America made the right choice.” He added: “We have seen acrobats and athletes before, but never three beautiful women with that kind of strength.”


Singer Kenadi Dodds, dance duo Bad Salsa and magician Max Major finished in the middle of the pack and were on the verge of elimination.

“I’m confused of the three of you right now,” Mandel said. “I can not believe it was you three (on the chopping block).”

The three acts went head-to-head in a live round of voting for “Dunkin ‘Save”, where fans only had the opportunity to save one performer. The one who received the most votes in a 30-minute flash round would move on.

In the end, viewers saved Dodds.

“I was sitting here hoping it would be you,” Klum said. “You really deserve to go to the finals.”

But the results were not over yet. The judges had the chance to decide who got the last place in the final: Bad Salsa or Major.

“This is the only part of my new job that I hate … I’ll have to pick one, or I’ll get fired,” Vergara said before choosing Bad Salsa to stay.

Klum did not even have to make a choice because Mandel voted to save Bad Salsa.


The five acts with the fewest voices – singer Celina Graves, sword-swallower Brett Loudermilk, dared Jonathan Goodwin; dance group WAFFLE Crew (Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer winner) and Voices of our City Choir (Crew’s Golden Buzzer winner) – were eliminated.

Major was also sent with packing.

Next week

“America’s Got Talent” returns on September 22 for the finals (NBC, 8 EDT / PDT), where the top 10 get one last chance to blow America away.

And the competition is full of talent. The finalists include three golden summer winners – poet Brandon Leake (Almond) and singers Roberta Battaglia (Vergara) and Rae (Klum) – along with aerialist Alan Silva, Bello Sisters and Bad Salsa and singers Archie Williams, Tuleshova, Dodds and the duo Broken Roots.
