‘America’s Got Talent’ Quarterfinals Week 3 Results Recap
The acts that performed in week 3 of the live quarterfinals were Cristina Rae, Alan Silva, Malik Dope, Annie Jones, Bone-Breakers, Dance Town Family, Max Major, Thomas Day, Usama Siddiquee, Nolan Neal, and WAFFLE Crew. While Simon Cowell continued to recover at home from his broken back and subsequent surgery, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Sofia Vergara served as the 3 judges (without the support of a guest judge this week).
After a recap of the previous night’s performances, Terry Crews announced that the three acts that landed in the middle of the pack after viewers’ votes were WAFFLE Crew, Malik Dope, and Nolan Neal. Viewers at home could vote for their favorite via the “Dunkin Save,” which would save one act from elimination and send them through to the semifinals at the end of the night. Howie Mandel said he was shocked that those three acts were the ones in need of saving and that all three were his “favorite of the night.”
The first act of the night sent through to the semifinals was aerialist Alan Silva. Unfortunately for Dance Town Family, who were tuning in via live stream, that meant that they were eliminated and sent home.
Singer and single mom Cristina Rae was the next act voted through, followed by Max Major. Thomas Day, Annie Jones, Bone-Breakers, and Usama Siddiquee were eliminated.
2 Acts Were Saved From Eliminated by the Judges & Viewers at Home
At the end of the night, the “Dunkin Save” results were revealed. WAFFLE Crew received the most votes from the viewers watching and voting live from home, securing them the night’s 4th spot in the semifinals.
With only one spot left, it was up to judges Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel to vote and decide if Malik Dope or Nolan Neal should advance. Klum struggled to make her decision, but chose to give her vote to Malik Dope; Vergara gave her vote to Nolan Neal saying it might be his “last chance to make it big.” Mandel had to break the tie, and voted to save Malik Dope.
The 5 acts who went through to the semifinals were Alan Silva, Cristina Rae, Max Major, WAFFLE Crew, and Malik Dope.
New episodes of America’s Got Talent season 15 air live on Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
