America's Got Talent Results August 19 2015


“America’s Got Talent” revealed more semifinalists for season 10 on Wednesday, with a very surprising vote from a judge at the end.

As Gossip Cop reported, on Tuesday the second group of 12 quarterfinal acts took the stage at Radio City Music Hall, where they were tasked with upping their game for the live round of competition. Singer Sharon Irving and duo The CraigLewis Band were among the judges’ favorites. But, once again, only seven would be allowed to continue on.

Host Nick Cannon first started by revealing the three acts that, in no particular order, landed in sixth, seventh, and eighth place based on viewers’ votes. They were: comedic puppet Ira, band 3 Shades Of Blue, and visual dance artists Freckled Sky. One would ultimately get saved by Twitter, while the other two would have to face the judges in hopes of earning their redemption.

But who automatically made the semifinals after receiving the most votes? The top 5, again revealed in no particular order, were: circus performer Uzeyer Novruzov, 12-year-old opera singer Arielle Baril, The CraigLewis Band, Irving, and magician Derek Hughes. And then it was revealed Ira had narrowly won the Twitter save.

The power was then handed back to the judges to pick which of the remaining two should get the final spot. Mel B went with her “gut instinct” and voted for 3 Shades Of Blue, despite admitting she wasn’t thrilled with the vocalist. Mandel also gave his vote to the band, saying they stepped it up, whereas Freckled Sky didn’t. Howard Stern, who used his Golden Buzzer on Freckled Sky earlier in the season to send them straight to these live shows, explained how the act disappointed him Tuesday, leading him to vote for… 3 Shades Of Blue.

And with that, Freckled Sky was cut from the competition. Among those also eliminated this week was flyboarder Damone Rippy, whose water stunts (and good looks) initially impressed the judges during the auditions. TELL US: What do you think of tonight’s results?
