Semi-Finals Live Recap
The episode started with Terry Crews welcoming judges Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell onto the stage as well as providing a recap from the previous night’s episode.
Cowell told the acts that if they made it to the finals, they needed to step it up if they weren’t the acts that were “outstanding” the night before.
The acts that came in fourth, fifth and sixth would be going into the Instant Save, and one would be saved by the audience. Another will be saved by the judges at the end of the show.
First, Terry Crews said that Victory Brinker, UniCircle Flow and Lea Kyle would be the acts that were eligible for the Instant Save.
Next up, Terry Crews invited the acts Northwell Health Nurse Choir and 1aChord to the center of the stage and revealed that the first act making it through to the finals was the Northwell Nurse Health Choir.
The next two acts called forward were Kabir Singh and Rialcris. Crews revealed that the act moving on was actually neither of them. They were both eliminated.
After the break, Terry Crews called Brooke Simpson and Chapkidz to the center stage and revealed that Simpson would be the one moving forward.
Cowell told her that she “100 percent deserved” to be moving on to the finals, though he thought that everyone needed to step it up.
Lastly, Josh Blue and Peter Antoniou were invited to center-stage for Crews to reveal that the act moving forward was Josh Blue.
The last order of business for the night was revealing which of the three acts won the Instant Save and then which would be saved by the judges.
Crews revealed that the winner of the Instant Save was Lea Kyle in “one of the closest votes we’ve ever had.”
Heidi Klum said that she wanted to save Victory Brinker, Sofia Vergara said she would choose to save Victory as well, but Howie Mandel voted for UniCircle Flow. Simon was the dealbreaker, and he went with his heart, choosing to save Victory Brinker.
