The “America’s Got Talent” season 12 Judge Cuts came to a close on Tuesday with guest judge Seal. Get all the results below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, the “AGT” Judge Cuts are the second round of the NBC talent competition. All the acts that made it through the auditions have to go through these call-backs, where they have to be bigger and better than before in hopes of securing a place in the live semifinals. The contestants are divided into groups of 20, and from each group, only seven acts can make it through. Each of the four Judge Cuts episodes focused on one group of 20, with NBC airing the final installment tonight.

As the guest judge of the fourth edition, Seal used the season’s very last Golden Buzzer for singer Johnny Manuel. That meant out of the remaining 19 acts, the regular panelists could only choose six more to go on to the next round, with everyone else getting eliminated. Simon Cowell, Mel B, Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum ultimately chose Air Force singing group In The Stairwell, the Pompeyo Family Dogs, gospel choir Greater Works, 12-year-old dancer Merrick Hanna, young dancing duo Artyon and Paige, and singer Kechi.

They join the selections from the three prior Judge Cuts episodes: Dog trainer Sara and pooch Hero, the singing Donald Trump impersonator, dance crew Just Jerk, escape artist Demian Aditya, magician Eric Jones, singer Angelica Hale, singer-songwriter Chase Goehring, singing clown Puddles Pity Party, singing and dancing twins Mirror Image, brother-sister salsa dancers Junior and Emily, mentalist Colin Cloud, singer Evie Clair, singer Yoli Mayor and singer Celine Tam. For the live shows, they’ll also be competing against the five acts that won Golden Buzzers during the auditions, which allowed them to skip the Judge Cuts round and go straight to the quarterfinals. Those are singer Angelina Green, singer Christian Guardino, ventriloquist Darci Lynn Farmer, visual dance group Light Balance and singer Mandy Harvey.

Next week, “AGT” finally goes live for the first time in 2017, with 12 of the quarterfinalists taking the stage in hopes of moving on to the semifinals. Gossip Cop will once again have the results and highlights.
