Who made it to the finale of 'America's Got Talent' Season 17? Fans hoping to see Mayyas headline Vegas tour
PASADENA, CALIFORNIA: With the revelation of the final 11 artists last week, 'America's Got Talent' is just hours away from unveiling its season 17 winner, and fans have already made their guesses as to who will take it all, even though it might be one of three this year! The 11 talents will compete for a $1 million prize and the opportunity to headline "America's Got Talent Las Vegas LIVE" at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Tuesday night.
The new approach for Season 17 of 'America's Got Talent' didn't allow fans much of an opportunity to get to know the competitors. The artists have already performed twice. Fifty-five acts in the semi-finals were quite a feat! The 11 artists who have advanced to the finals appear to be at random. While the two acts that advanced each week were decided by popular voting, it appeared at times that the judges' remarks and where the act performed in the lineup impacted the outcome. Keep reading to find out the 11 finalists who will bring their A-game to the 'AGT' stage one last time.
Mayyas, a Lebanese dance group, was formed only four years ago, but they have taken the globe by storm – one dance step at a time. The all-female ensemble created by Lebanese choreographer Nadim Cherfan is making a comeback on the international stage this year after being granted the golden buzzer by 'AGT' judge Sofia Vergara in June. The dancers advanced to the finals after once again impressing the judges (Vergara, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell) last week.
Fans have already deemed Mayyas as the winner with their own ranking ahead of the finale, "#mayyas #AGT Definitely should win 2022 Absolutely amazing artistry. Chapel Hart for Second and Yu Hojin to top off my top three." Some fans also feel they got the perfect act for the Vegas show, ".@SimonCowell #AGT The Mayyas should really win AGT. They have a very visual act that says VEGAS all over it. I love Chapel Hart but for Vegas, my vote is Mayyas!!!!"
Chapel Hart, a South Mississippi country music trio, is one of 11 artists or groups participating in the Sept 13 finals. The female group is made up of sisters Devyn and Danica Hart, as well as their cousin Trea Swindle, and takes its name from the Poplarville neighborhood of Harts Chapel. They were just the second act in history to be granted a group Golden Buzzer, as all five Golden Buzzers had previously been given out by the time they auditioned.
Fans of the band are already rooting for the girls ahead of the finale, "Tough finals this week all so good and all I wanted to go through, but my heart is with Chapel Hart." Also, fans can't seem to wait to hear them perform on the night of the finale, "@ChapelHartBand you guys are amazing I can’t wait to hear you sing in the finals from Paul c in the uk oh by the way angel is an amazing song."

'AGT' fans are loving the company's 'deep fake' demos, which use real singers and unique technology to make it appear as though Simon and the judges are singing. The partners pledge to invite a well-known rock band, as well as Sofia and Heidi, to perform. They may win it all if they put on a great and entertaining performance. The point is, while the part is a parlor trick, it also looks like magic and might work on a Vegas set.
Yu Hojin's Semifinals performance featured close-up magic, focusing on the concept of imagination. He gained enough votes to make the night's Top 5 instead of Mr Pants and Aiko Tanaka and Top 3 instead of The Brown Brothers and Duo Rings. Instead of Maddie, he advanced to the Finals with Chapel Hart.
Mike E Winfield
Mike E Winfield's Semifinals performance included a stand-up comedy routine. He gained enough votes to replace Lee Collinson in the Top 5 and Jack Williams and Merissa Beddows in the Top 3. Instead of Lily Meola, he proceeded to the Finals with Metaphysic.
Nicolas RIBS, the other magician, has an innovative performance that would fit perfectly into a Las Vegas show. His distinct style of magic is invigorating. Nicolas RIBS' Semifinals performance included close-up magic with cards and visual graphics, assisted by Terry Crews. He gained enough votes to place in the Top 5 instead of MPLUSPLUS, and the Top 3 instead of Amanda Mammana and Hayden Kristal. Instead of Celia Muoz, he proceeded to the Finals with Sara James.
At the age of 14, this Polish vocalist has a mature and captivating voice. Sara James' Semifinals performance included a rendition of Elton John's 'Rocket Man'. She gained enough votes to replace Jojo and Bri in the Top 5 and Amanda Mammana and Hayden Kristal in the Top 3. Instead of Celia Muoz, she proceeded to the Finals with Nicolas RIBS.
Avery is a gifted musician who is also quite personable. Avery Dixon's Semifinals performance included a saxophone rendition of Stevie Wonder's 'Higher Ground' backed by a full band. He gained enough votes to make the Top 5 of the night, replacing Stefanny and Yeeremy, and the Top 3 of the night, replacing Players Choir and Amoukanama. Instead of Don McMillan, he progressed to the Finals alongside Drake Milligan.
Kristy is a fantastic dancer even without the multimedia display. However, her elegance and agility, paired with an imaginative storyline and visuals, make her a real contender this season. Kristy Sellars' Semifinals performance was a twin pole dancing routine that took her through magical worlds. She gained enough votes to make the Top 5 of the night, replacing Shu Takada and Blade 2 Blade, and the Top 3 of the night, replacing Urbancrew and Kristen Cruz. Instead of Mervant Vera, she proceeded to the Finals with Mayyas.
This country artist and singer-songwriter bring his band to the 'AGT' stage to entertain. He's a good songwriter and a lot of fun to watch, not to mention attractive. 'AGT' is being used by him and his record company BBR/Stoney Creek to promote his new album. Drake Milligan performed his original song 'Kiss Goodbye All Night' in the Semifinals, supported by his band. He gained enough votes to make the Top 5 of the night, replacing Amazing Veranica & Her Incredible Friends and Ben Lapidus, and the Top 3 of the night, replacing Players Choir and Amoukanama. Instead of Don McMillan, he progressed to the Finals alongside Avery Dixon.
Celia's extremely innovative ventriloquism act was a smash at the auditions, but she faltered in the semi-finals. Celia Muoz's Semifinals routine consisted of her singing 'Hopelessly Devoted to You' from Grease while eating popcorn and ice cream, drinking a milkshake, and blowing her nose. She gained enough votes to place in the Top 5 instead of Mia Morris, and the Top 3 instead of Amanda Mammana and Hayden Kristal. She finished third, behind Sara James and Nicolas RIBS, and was therefore eliminated from the competition. Later, she was nominated for the Instant Save Wild Card vote by Sofia Vergara, and she received enough votes to return as the 11th finalist instead of Lily Meola, Players Choir, and Don McMillan.
