Tomorrow night, the results episode will air and five acts will go through, while six will be eliminated. So, who are the contestants set to perform this week? Let’s get into the acts below.
Young singer Angelica Hale actually ended up getting a golden buzzer after her second performance on the show, when Chris Hardwick was a guest judge.
This little girl is a singer who is a huge fan of Celine Dion. In fact, her whole family is, as her parents named her after the singer. They did the same with Tam’s younger sister, whose name is Dion. But, Tam doesn’t solely sing Celine Dion and she continues to stun on stage.
Guardino is a young singer who was given the golden buzzer this season because of the maturity in his voice and his likability. He is a humble and timid 16-year-old, who began singing when he was very young. For his initial audition, as soon as he opened his mouth to sing, Simon Cowell looked stunned and Howie Mandel’s mouth dropped.
Colin Cloud is a mentalist, who refers to himself as a real-life Sherlock Holmes. He says he uses criminal profiling to help him in his tricks and he considers himself to be a forensic mind reader.
