America’s Got Talent Results Feature Show’s First-Ever Live Viewer Save!

“America’s Got Talent” featured its first-ever live viewer save on Wednesday’s results show.
As Gossip Cop reported, Tuesday’s first round of the semifinals featured 12 acts, with Mara Justine receiving a standing ovation and singing competitor Emily West being called a “true million dollar act.”
Similar to how it works on fellow NBC series “The Voice,” host Nick Cannon revealed viewers could save one of the three acts that were in jeopardy of being eliminated after placing in fifth, sixth and seventh after last night’s votes.
Using Google (see video below), viewers could cast votes for which they wanted to save — either Justine, aerial dancer Aerial Animation, or magicians David & Leeman.
The one with the most votes was declared the saved winner, with the judges then getting to choose between the final two for the last spot.
So, which contestants did America — and the judges — choose to keep in the competition?
- Mystifier Mike Super (brought back from quarterfinals as Howie Mandel wild card pick)
- Band Sons of Serendip
- Singer Emily West
- Singer Miguel Dakota
- Singer Mara Justine (saved by viewers)
- Magicians David & Leeman (saved by judges)
That meant Aerial Animation got the boot, and singing U.S. soldier Paul Ieti was also among the acts sent home.
The six acts above who survived the cut now make up the first half of the Top 12, which will be completed next week when the rest of the semifinalists perform.
What do you think of tonight’s results, and the first-ever viewer save?
