“America’s Got Talent” revealed more semifinalists for season 11 on Wednesday. Get the results below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the 2016 quarterfinals continued on Tuesday with 12 acts performing live at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Among the standouts were Kadie Lynn singing “My Church,” Calysta Bevier doing a “Brave” performance, Sofie Dossi shooting a flaming arrow while blindfolded, and Sal Valentinetti performing a One Direction cover in the vein of a jazz standard. There were quite a few standing ovations, but not everyone could make it through to the semifinals.
In fact, host Nick Cannon explained that only seven of the 12 acts would get to move on to the next round, joining seven from last week and another to-be-determined group. And based on viewers’ votes following yesterday’s show, five contestants automatically got the green light. They were: mentalist couple The Clairvoyants, juggler Viktor Kee, Rubik’s cube magician Steven Brundage, Dossi, and Bevier.
That left two slots fill, and it came down to the acts that ranked sixth, seventh, eighth according to the vote tallies. Without revealing their exact order, Cannon announced the contestants in jeopardy were Kadie Lynn, Valentinetti (Klum’s Golden Buzzer pick), and acrobatic couple ThroWings. And during the live results show, fans could vote to instantly save just one of them.
Valentinetti ended up winning redemption with more than 46 percent of the vote, and then it was up to the judges to pick between Kadie Lynn and ThroWings for the last spot. Howie Mandel cast the first vote for the acrobats, and then Mel B did, too. Heidi Klum, however, gave her vote to Kadie Lynn, as did Cowell.
That meant, for the second week in a row, the judge were divided. The put the decision power back in America’s hands. And Cannon revealed that based on the audience’s original vote, Kadie Lynn would go through. Sadly, ThroWings was eliminated.
