'America's Got Talent: The Champions' Season 2: Here are the three contestants who made it to the semifinals
Two acts with the highest votes from the superfans advanced directly to the semi-finals. One act that impressed the judges most was also saved
'America's Got Talent: The Champions' Season 2 revealed the final three acts who advanced to the semifinals that will air next week when the series returns. This week the decisions weren't as expected. Especially when it came to the judges save.
Last week the three acts who advanced to the semifinals were Duo Destiny, Tyler Butler-Figueroa and Alexa Lauenburger. V. Unbeatable won Howie Mandel's golden buzzer and advanced directly to the finale.
This week, we were introduced to 10 acts that appeared on various other seasons of AGT and its spin-offs. But sadly not all 10 could advance to the semifinals. Only three acts made it through. Two acts with the highest votes from the superfans advanced directly to the semifinals. One act that impressed the judges most was also saved and sent through to the semifinals.
The Golden Buzzer this week was stolen by Silhouettes the first shadow group to appear on AGT. After an inspirational and emotional performance, Alesha Dixon pressed her Golden Buzzer for them and send them directly to the finale.
Here are the three acts who advanced to the semifinals on Monday night:
The first act to advance to the semifinals after receiving the highest votes from the superfans was Strauss Serpent, the dancer and contortionist, who won 'Africa's Got Talent' in 2017. Prior to his performance, he shared how he took to the streets in Congo and performed after his dad passed away. At the age of 13, he became a refugee and was arrested over 13 times and his talent was the one thing that saved him. During his performance, Strauss bent himself in the most jaw-dropping crazy way that would also make one cringe but yet be in awe of his talent. After his performance, Simon shared that this was one of his favorite acts of the night.
Sandou Trio Russian Bar
Sandou Trio Russian Bar was the second act to advance to the semifinals via the superfan vote. The Russian Bar act made it till the semifinals during 'America's Got Talent' in 2011. After the huge mistake they made during the semifinals during their season on AGT, they were back to redeem their name and they sure did. Jumping up and down on a bouncy narrow bar, the somersaults become more dangerous as the height increased. They ended their performance with one final trick right in front of the judges which left the judges impressed. Post their performance Simon called their act the most relevant one of the night.
This 7-year-old comedian roasted the judges and Terry Crews like there's no tomorrow and bagged the final spot in the semifinals. JJ Pantano who wants to be a performer just like his mom appeared on 'Australia's Got Talent' in 2019. He made it until the semifinals before he got eliminated. He makes snarky jokes about all four judges and got a laugh out of everyone including the judges. They were impressed with him and Simon shared that he has star power in him. When it came to choosing the last semifinalist, Alesha voted for Brian King Joseph the violinist, Heidi voted for Christian and Percy, but Simon and Howie voted for JJ Pantano and sent him to the semifinals.
