The second round for the semifinals of 'America's Got Talent' is currently underway on NBC with 11 acts battling it out to make their spot on the finale. Judge Simon Cowell was absent from the show and Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara were the ones on the judging seat. The opening act started explosively with an epic performance from Cowell's golden buzzer group, the WAFFLE Crew. One of the show's fan-favorite dance groups, the Crew busted out some slick, acrobatic dance moves from an automobile repair shop stage setting in Universal Studios, Hollywood.

After their performance, Klum aptly described the group, "We can always count on you guys to lift our spirits lift our energy" before receiving positive and enthusiastic comments from the rest of the judges. Howie also joked, "So far, you are my favorite act of the night." 

Fans were in agreement with the judges and shared many comments on Twitter. "Hello:Oh My Gosh, great act and great dance and moves.. Best Wishes, EVER. I just voted for @WaffleNYC on #AGT," said one fan while another wrote, "@AGT Great job, W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew, loved your T-shirts!" One fan said, "I want the W.A.F.F.L.E crew to get this one!!!! They got it in the bag whoooohooo!!! Let's go !!  



 

 



 

 



 

 

One fan who had mixed feelings about their performance said, "W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew actually did a great job kicking off the show and stepped up from their previous QF performance. However, I still think they gave their best performance in their audition. Is it enough to get to the finals?" After a string of amazing performances, including a nail-biting stunt from Jonathan Goodwin, the next dance act, India's salsa-dancing duo, Bad Salsa, took to the stage. Dressed in yellow, the pair gave a super quick performance from a temple in India to an uptempo song.



 

 

 

Their performance brought a roar from the crowd and the judges shared the energy in their comments. Sofia said, "This is beyond ballroom dancing, this is dangerous." Heidi shared, "You are also one of my favorites. It feels like it is on fast-forward cause it was lightning speed," and Howie added, "Tonight it is all about the dance," deeming their performance "worthy of the finals."

Fans were loving their performance. "Bad Salsa moves are unbelievable,I have never seen any moves like those. They really deserve to win this while thing," said a fan. Another humorously noted, "....BAD Salsa needs to change their name." One fan expressed, "Bad Salsa is the ONE act, I'll be mad if they don't make the finals. They absolutely deserve it over ANY of the Singers this year. #AGT"
