Semi-Finals Round 1 Eliminations Live Recap
The show started with host Terry Crews announcing that the finale was just two weeks away and welcoming all four of the judges and the live audience to the show, followed by a short recap of the previous night.
Then, all the acts were welcomed to the stage for vote reveals.
For the acts, Cowell shared that his act was to not be afraid and “you’ve gotta bring your A-Game and do things we’ve never seen before on this stage.”
The three acts in the instant save were singer Jimmy Herrod, comedian Michael Winslow and World Taekwondo Demonstration Team. The Instant Save was opened for the following 25 minutes. Two Golden Buzzer acts were included in the 4th, 5th and 6th positions.
One of those three will be saved. Then, the judges will save one of the two acts that were in the bottom two.
Ben Platt, star of “Dear Evan Hansen,” then took the stage to perform the song “You Will Be Found.”
Following the performance, Beyond Belief, Gina Brillon and Tory Vagasy were called forward by Terry Crews, who then announced that the first act going through to the finals was announced to be comedian Gina Brillon.
Next, Terry called Aidan Bryant, Korean Soul and Madilyn Bailey to center stage to get more results. He then revealed that the act moving forward was Aidan Bryant.
The last two acts on the stage were Dustin Tavella and Peter Rosalita. The act going into the finals out of the two of them was Dustin Tavella.
It was finally time to announce the winner of the Instant Save between Jimmy Herrod, comedian Michael Winslow and World Taekwondo Demonstration Team.
The act that made it through based on the live vote was Jimmy Herrod, meaning that the other two would be the bottom two and the judges would decide to send one through to the finals.
