‘America’s Got Talent’ Season 15 Episode 22 Recap & Results
The acts up for deliberation during the September 16 episode, hoping for enough votes from America to move on to the finals, were: the Bello Sisters, Kenadi Dodds, Jonathan Goodwin, Celina Graves, Brett Loudermilk, Daneliya Tuleshova, WAFFLE Crew, BAD Salsa, Max Major, Voices of Our City Choir, and Cristina Rae. With only 5 spots left in the finale, 6 acts would be eliminated at the end of the night.
The first 5 spots in the finals (out of 10 total) were awarded last week, to Broken Roots, Brandon Leake, Alan Silva, Roberta Battaglia, and Archie Williams.
After a recap of the previous night’s performances, it was time to find out which 5 acts were advancing, keeping their dreams of AGT victory alive. Host Terry Crews revealed that the voting was the closest it’s been all season.
The acts that came in 4th, 5th, and 6th, at risk of elimination and in need of live votes in the “Dunkin Save” were Kenadi Dodds, BAD Salsa, and Max Major.
The first act sent through was singer and single mom Cristina Rae, with singer Celina Graves eliminated.
In between results, viewers were treated to a performance from Scottish mentalist Colin Cloud, who competed on AGT in 2017. Supporting his jaw-dropping act (virtually) were Shin Lim, Darci Lynne Farmer, and Kodi Lee.
Voices of Our City Choir, Daneliya Tuleshova, and WAFFLE Crew were next up for deliberation, with a spot in the finals for only 1 of the 3 acts. After America’s votes, Daneliya Tuleshova advanced. She was emotional watching Voices of Our City and WAFFLE Crew leaving the stage after their surprising eliminations.
After Jonathan Goodwin, the Bello Sisters, and Brett Loudermilk all stepped forward for the 3rd finals spot of the night, Bello Sisters advanced while the other two acts were voted out of the competition.

Before the final two spots were awarded from the Dunkin Save results and judges’ pick, global sensation BTS performed their single “Dynamite.”
With the vote closed for the last Dunkin Save of the season, the live voters chose to send young singer Kenadi Dodds to the finals.
The difficult task of choosing between BAD Salsa and Max Major for the final spot in next week’s finale was placed in the hands of the judges.
