Next to a poor performance group which drew harsh criticism (especially from Cowell) in the second quarterfinal on Tuesday, host Terry Crews asked the UK judge: âYou were really against each other last night. it in the water, man? ”
Cowell fired back and pointed at the competitors, âWhat was in their water?
âI mean, seriously, there were some incredible performances,â he said on Wednesday’s results show with a down-to-earth shrug, âAnd there were appalling performance. “
Fortunately, it is up to America to decide who will advance to the semi-finals. Only seven will progress, while the five-act million dollar dream will now come to an end.
Speaking of million dollar dreams, Season 14 winner Kodi Lee has returned to perform a mind-blowing duet with ELLE from her single “Hold On”. SHE said she felt “so moved” and “blessed to play with him”. Lee called the opportunity “incredible”.
Here’s what happened on the “America’s Got Talent” live scores show:

The five acts that received the most votes automatically moved forward.
Northwell Nursing Choir, Howie Mandel’s golden buzzer, was the first act to move forward after their emotional rendition of âYou Will Be Foundâ from âDear Evan Hansenâ. Once the group advanced, Mandel said, âYou are heroes and he’s a welcome hero for the semi-finals.
Singer Victory Brinker, the the very first Golden Buzzer group on the show, and self-taught aerialist Aidan Bryant both advanced in a dramatic reveal that made viewers believe that only one was advancing. “I love it when young people chase their dream,” said Heidi Klum after a collective sigh of relief.
Mentalist Peter Antoniou was also safe: “Thank you America for trusting me.”
Comedian Josh Blue joined them in the Safe Zone shortly after, following his “sensational” act on Living With Cerebral Palsy. âYou are trying to give me a heart attack,â the comedian said.
All jokes aside, Cowell said Blue had “a chance to win it all.” He added: “You and others are making this competition a big, big one this year.”
Face to face
Korean Soul (vocal group), T.3 (vocal trio) and Tory Vagasy (vocalist) finished in the middle of the pack and were on the verge of elimination.
The three acts clashed in a live voting round for the “Dunkin ‘Save”, where fans had the opportunity to save just one artist. Whoever received the most votes in a 30-minute whirlwind would move on.
In the end, viewers saved Vagasy. âThank you to everyone who supported me and showed me kindness,â said the aspiring Broadway singer, who covered her face in disbelief.
But the results were not yet complete. The judges were lucky enough to save either Korean Soul or T.3.
“I have a soft spot for one group more than the other,” Klum said before voting for T.3. Vergara also chose T.3, calling their sound “fresher and newer”. Cowell chose Korean Soul although he called their performance “boring”. Mandel agreed to give Korean Soul another chance, resulting in a tie.
The act with the most votes from overnight viewers would move forward: Korean Soul.

The four acts with the fewest votes – Shuffolution (dance group); Positive impact movement (acrobats); Johnny Showcase (singer); and Dokteuk Crew (dance group) – have been eliminated.
T.3 was also sent packaging.
âAmerica’s Got Talentâ will return on Tuesday for the quarter-final third round (NBC, 8 EDT / PDT), where 12 more acts will attempt to topple America to advance to the semi-finals.
Next week’s artists include ANICA (singer); Brooke Simpson (singer); ChapKidz (dance group); Keith Apicary (dancer); Klek Entos (magician); Michael Winslow (voicetramentalist); Rialcris (acrobats); The Curtis Family C-Notes (group); UniCircle Flow (unicycle group); and Golden Buzzer winners LÃ©a Kyle (quick change artist) and World Taekwondo Demonstration Team (martial arts group).
The third round of the quarter-finals will also feature a wildcard contender decided by viewers during the first-ever Peacock Special “AGT: America’s Wildcard” last week.
The Joker will be one of these five acts: singers Dylan Zangwill, Storm Large, Matt Mauser; comedian Mike Goodwin; or the magician Patrick Kun.
