PASADENA, CALIFORNIA: The finale episode of 'America's Got Talent' Season 17 had more twists and turns than a Telemundo series. As the talent hunt show's host Terry Crews began announcing the names of the contestants from amongst the Top 11 finalists who would be advancing to subsequent rounds, fans experienced a myriad of feelings from joy to disappointment.
