“America’s Got Talent” Results: Last Season 11 Finalists Revealed!
“America’s Got Talent” revealed the last finalists for season 11 on Wednesday. Get all the results below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the second and final installment of the semifinal round took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Tuesday. Standout moments included Linkin Bridge singing “7 Years” and Brian Justin Crum performing “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” to close the two-hour broadcast. In all, 11 acts took the stage.
But only five could continue on to next week’s finale. And three acts automatically made it through based on the audience’s votes. They were: mentalist couple The Clairvoyants, Crum, and Linkin Bridge. Among those surprisingly eliminated were teen singers Calysta Bevier (Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer pick), Kadie Lynn, and Jayna Brown (Louis Tomlinson’s Golden Buzzer pick.)
Host Nick Cannon announced, however, that contortionist and hand balancer Sofie Dossi, Rubik’s Cube magician Steven Brundage, and juggler Viktor Kee were in jeopardy after placing sixth, seventh and eighth in the vote tallies, though the exact ranking wasn’t divulged. Now viewers could advance one of those acts by voting online during the show.
And it was Dossi who ended up winning the instant Dunkin Save. Then, with just one spot remaining in the finals, it was up to the judges to decide whether Brundage or Kee should go on to the last round of the NBC competition. Heidi Klum tried refusing to vote before ultimately selecting Kee. Mel B then chose Brundage, and Simon Cowell, going with his “heart,” voted for Brundage, too.
Howie Mandel had the final vote, and he went with his “heart,” as well… choosing Kee. With the votes tied and the panel deadlocked, the decision power reverted back to America and the original result rankings. And with that, it was revealed Kee would be moving on, having scored more votes after last night’s episode than Brundage.
Next Tuesday, these five finalists will join the five acts chosen last week to compete for $1 million and a residency in Las Vegas. To recap, the final 10 acts are: singer Grace VanderWaal, singer Sal Valentinetti, magician Jon Dorenbos, mime Tape Face, singer Laura Bretan, The Clairvoyants, Brian Justin Crum, Linkin Bridge, Sofie Dossi, and Viktor Kee.
Gossip Cop, of course, will have full coverage. Check out video of tonight’s results announcement below!
