Gold Derby has reported that Kodi Lee has been voted as most likely to win, out of tonight’s acts. Meanwhile, Judge Simon Cowell has said that Tyler Butler-Figueroa is the contestant who everyone will be “rooting for” this season, according to People. Butler-Giueroa is an 11-year-old violinist who was diagnosed with leukemia at 4½ years old and also suffered from bullying over his illness.
Ahead of part 1 of the semi-finals, judge Gabrielle Union’s advice to the contestants is to “idiot-proof” their performances. In an interview with People, for the singing competitors, Union said, “I strongly suggest idiot-proofing the song choice. Pick a song that people are familiar with so they can have something to compare it to and recognize as brilliant.” And, for those non-singing acts, Union said, “Whatever you thought was good enough for the live shows, go back to the drawing board, humble yourself and come back stronger, bigger, badder and better. Leave it all out there.”
When it comes to the other new judge on the show this season, Julianne Hough, she is focused on the enjoyment of changing people’s lives. Hough told Parade, “It is fulfilling to be able to be on this show, watching other people’s dreams come true because nothing makes me happier than when somebody says that they’re happy and fulfilled.”
