Get yours: HERE

Well, THAT was a rousing opening! I’m fully awake now. Oh dang. This recap from last night might put me back to sleep.  Next, and FINALLY, the judges,Howie MandelGabrielle UnionJulianne Hough and Simon Cowell are introduced. Simon says he has no idea who will win tonight. They guy was spacing out until Terry called him twice. He probably needs a smoke break.

ONE LAST DUNKIN’ LOUNGE. The show is going to be filled with a ton of filler, isn’t it…

Lang Lang tas the stage to play some hokey piano. Next, kid opera singer Emmane Beasha joins him on stage for a song, that will appear on his new album

Next, it’s Ryan Niemiller. He shares that he wanted to be a pro-wrestler once upon a time. He could be a bad-**s! So his handle “Cripple Threat” is his wrestling name! Chris Jericho is his favorite wrestler. He drops by to teach Ryan a few moves.  Oh dear. Ryan is too nice for trash talk. Ha. Chris teaches him to yell at Simon, who does not even know what Ramen noodles are. Well, that was fun. “You never turn your back on the cripple threat!”
Howie introduces a video clip that’s all about host Terry Crews. What a wacky guy!

Next Benicio Bryan takes the stage with his “hero” Latin urban singer and songwriter Ozuna. Benicio got a haircut! It’s a little jarring! So is this musical style for Benicio. But it actually suits him! Benicio didn’t sing any upbeat songs for the competition. This is a welcome change up. 

The next video package stars Simon and Cher. What a pair. This is very odd. The two discull “random thoughts”…on things. Cell phones, video games and more. Simon likes pong. 

Now, it’s Julianne Hough performing her new single. V. Unbeatable join her on stage.  She sings. They toss…Julianne! Right through the air. Don’t like the song? There’s a distraction! Heh.  Hm. This is a pop song. Wasn’t she a country singer last time? 

Lilly Singh, the Youtube star who hosts the new late late late night show on NBC. She picks the five worst acts: The monkey in a tutu, Death, Yurian Retriever (OF COURSE), Brandon Coprich (the naked flute player) Sethward is her favorit

Next it’s an “exclusive” AGT mashup. Light Balance Kids, Tyler Butler-Figueroa and last year’s finalist Brian Joseph King join forces. A trio of names. Heh. Tyler and Brian perform a “Favorite Things” and then Light Balance Kids take the stage to dance to “Treasure” by Bruno Mars. Just as I am thinking “where’s the mashup?” SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE.  The “kids” pull off their masks and IT’S PAULA ABDUL! Dancing with the kids! PAULER PAULER PAULER! 

RESULTS: Here we go! The Top 10 are center stage. In no particular order, who made it into the Top 5. Benicio Bryant and Voices of Service are center stage.  The first act taking a spot in the Top 5 is…Voices of Service!Benicio isn’t in the Top 5. My predictions are already done. Emmane Beasha and Ryan Niemiller step forward. The act taking the second spot in the Top 5 is…Ryan NiemillerV. Unbeatable are next, with Ndlovu Youth Choir.

Kodi shares on his face"

"This entire journey has helped me with communication, and no matter what happens I’m so thankful for the love and opportunity that agt and all of you have given me! Don’t miss the AGTFinale tonight!"

Viewer reaction

Brenda Celona Some of These comments are making me so angry! Sympathy vote?? Are you people crazy !! Everyone was amazing this year and They’re all winners!
But Kodi is so very talented he can sing, Play a piano and make the song his own!!! That alone is hard to do! No karaoke for him! He is great! So happy he won! Practice kindness people

Summer Keenan Congrats Kodi, you above all deserved this! Your duet tonight gave me goosebumps and brought tears to my eyes. You have shown that people with autism CAN achieve great things if they are just given the opportunity.

Sandra Lara So many talented acts! The winner in my heart was the Youth Choir! They sang and performed amazing! So many hard working kids with dreams were crushed! This person who's name I dont want to remember did not deserve to win! I would not want to go see him in Las Vegas! Is his mom gonna head line with him too! Eewwwwhhhhuuuu!!!! Change the channel!

Isaac Wallner Kodi you more than deserves this moment!! Kodi you should be more than proud of yourself!! You were a winner way before this show!! You did this! This is all you buddy! Words could never describe how much you have accomplished. You are living proof that no matter what the circumstances someone is born into that they can be successful and go far in life. Thank you so much for inspiring the world Kodi Lee!!! I’ve been awestruck the second I saw you on the show. You are incredible. You have a long career ahead of you!! This is what inclusion looks like and finding the best in people. We all deserve a chance regardless of how God created us! Kodi you showed the world this! Kodi you have opened the door for so many others. You woke us all up! God bless

Jalah Pace I'm sorry but he was not the best talent, he won because of his disability. There were much better acts, he was good but the other singers were a lot better and all these people are not being honest. The youth choirs were so much better then he was. I think it is great that he has over come his disability and he has a good voice. He is not a million dollar act sorry, I'm the only honest person here you all know why you voted for him. The youth choirs sang circles around him.

Chris Gunter If this were a movie no one would believe it…

Congratulations to Kodi Lee, winner of season 14 of America’s got talent! In doing so Lee makes history becoming not only the first pianist to win AGT but also the first winner with a major disability(autism and blindness). Since Lees golden buzzer performance earlier this year Lee has become an inspiration to hundreds of millions of people across the world. Some have gone as far as calling Lee a “Gift from God.” Whether or not you believe that to be true I think we can all agree that Lee has taught us all a very important lesson in life: No Dream is too big as long as you’re willing to dream it and put in the work to achieve it. Congrats again to one of the most unforgettable, loving, and genuine winners/contestants in AGT history!

Tyler Butler-Figueroa 0%

Kodi Lee – Blind/autistic singer/pianist – Gabrielle Union’s Golden Buzzer – Kodi insists auditioning for AGT was his idea. He hears music in his head. He speaks to the people he loves through his music because it’s difficult to express himself otherwise. “My family is always there for me,” he says.

“My dreams are coming true.” It takes him a few seconds to begin his cover of  ” “. The song is in his vocal range. Sometimes Kodi strains on the high notes.It’s a pretty and simple performance. When he does deliver a high note, it’s clean. Hm. That may have won him the show. The audience is chanting for him! She says, “Kodi has changed the world,” she says. Howie thinks Kodi will “walk out of here with a million.” Julianne thanks him for creating beautiful moments. “That was as good as I’ve ever heard,” says Simon. 

Ndlovu Youth Choir  – Youth choir hales from South Africa – For the group’s last performance, they cover Toto’s “Africa.” Which is interesting. Ever read those lyrics? The song is a look at the country from a blinkered white guy’s point of view. Heh. But why not give the song some authenticity? It’s a good thing. This group continues to deliver great vocal performances with verve and energy. I’m glad they got the pimp spot. Simon says they ended the “best finale I have ever sat on.” He also calls it their best performance. “If you can dream it you can dream it,” says Julianne. Gabrielle calls them the pride of America and Africa. Howie shouts “What a finale, vote!” after comparing the choir leader to Neil Patrick Harris. 

Benicio Bryant – Teen singer competed on The Voice Kids Germany recently – He was one year old when America’s Got Talent premiered. He’s been watching it every year and has dreamed of winning it. He turned 15 this week. His voice sounds tired this week–a little strained. I wonder if he’s sick. At this point of the competition, he needs a dramatic moment, which this song does not provide. Julianne calls him a star, able to hold the stage without bells and whistles. She thinks he can win. Simon respects how he presented an original song without gimmicks. Howie also thinks Benicio can win. Simon hits his button for some weird reason. 

Tyler Butler-Figueroa  – Young violinist battled Leukemia – Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer – Tyler tears up as he watches good luck messages from fellow cancer survivors. He performs Destiny Child’s “I’m a Survivor. He’s had better performances, I think. Or maybe at this point, there is nowhere to take this act and I’m a little bored. It’s nice that he inspires other kids, though. Simon is bursting with pride. Beyonce personally cleared the song for Tyler, Simon reveals. “You’ve got a shot here,” he says. Howie is also proud, and inspired. Gabrielle believes he saved the best for last. 

Light Balance Kids  – One of the members got sick before their audition. He went to the hospital, but even practiced there. They don’t give up! The kiddos funk it up this week with a fast food theme. Ha A pizza box comes to life and chases the kids around the stage and bites them. Now, they’ve turned into dancing fries and hamburgers. Cute.  

The french fry shoots fireworks. Entertaining, clear story from the group this week. Julianne calls it creative and innovative. Gabrielle admires their commitment and focus. Simon felt they pulled out their best performance when it mattered. “Fun, cool and relevant,” he says. Howie calls it an immersive, fun Vegas act. “The entire act was gluten free!” How about those hamburger buns, though. 

Voices of Service  – Singing quartet made up of active duty/vets – They read letters from struggling vets, relatives of vets who struggled who found some peace in their performances. It’s very moving. The group sings a religious hymn. I like them better singing pop songs. It’s that “footprints in the sand” song, and it’s sappy. But there is no denying their incredible voices and beautiful harmonies. Howie says they are changing lives, “It’s so important and powerful.” Howie asks America to vote. Gabrielle calls them “instruments of feeling.” Julianne says the group brings people hope and joy. Simon thinks they’ve had two incredible weeks. He thinks they have a chance to win. Hm. Probably not. 

Ryan Niemiller – Birth defect left this comedian without hands – He and his family grew up in a trailer. Winning  1 million would mean a lot to them. “I hear the camera adds 10 fingers,” he says. Heh. Oh gosh. These jokes are funny tonight. “I got tennis elbow from fist bumping so much.” Folks avoid shaking his hand.  This is such a painful story, yet I’m laughing. It’s because he tells a his true story without any self-pity.”If you don’t vote for me tonight, it’s technically a hate crime.” Seriously, his funniest yet. Simon thinks he could star in a movie or TV show. He pleads his case with casting folks! Howie says he has an amazing heart, “I want you to be a star, you are a star.” Gabrielle offers to cast him in one of HER movies. Julianne calls it an honor to watch him. I hope he at least makes to Top 5. 

Emanne Beasha  – Young opera singer – Emmane turns 11 years old TOMORROW. What a way to spend her special day! The combination of performing third and needing the judges to save her last week means she has no chance of winning this thing or even coming close.

It’s another nice performance from a young, undeveloped singer. Maybe someday, after years of training, she’ll be a great opera singer. Julianne calls it “otherworldly” and calls her a perfect angel. The judges are bathed in smoke! Ha. Simon compares her to an Olympic star and calls her talent incredible. Howie notes that she’s a BTS fan. We needed that info. Or not. Gabrielle calls her blessing and an angel.

I hope he at least makes to Top 5. 

Detroit Youth Choir – Choir made up of underprivileged kids – Terry Crews Golden Buzzer – Tonight, they sing “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Tonight they group has added rapping to up the ante. Don’t think it’s a good idea for rapping to take the place of lead singers though.

The background singing is better than all the leads. Again, the group is a high caliber school choir, but they don’t belong on AGT. Well, they got a death spot. It’s hard to imagine them making the Top 5. The crowd is going nuts. Gabrielle has to shout her thoughts. “You guys shine so bright on that stage.” The kids are crying.

Gabrielle loves that they all had specific moments. Simon doesn’t see a choir, but a group of individuals who have worked hard. “You have meant so much to us…this is going to be such a touch competition tonight,” he says. “I feel like I’m attending the Simon Cowell day care center,” says Howie. That wasn’t meant as a diss. 

America’s Got Talent 2019 Finals V. Unbeatable  – Dance/Tumblers from India – The group tells the story of losing their founder to a terrible accident while rehearsing. The V. in their name is a tribute to him, Vikas. They say they never perform without his name on their back. Whoo. Now the boys are jumping off of balconies! DON’T DIE GUYS. The set

is made up of a series of blocks, The routine is full of intricate tumbling and crazy dance moves.

 The last move has a young one literally thrown off the highest block. IT’S CRAZY. Covered in streamers, the judges are on their feet. Howie calls them dangerous and exciting. He says “V for Victory!” Gabrielle calls it “Unfeaking believable. You guys killed that performance.” Julianne says they are everything a dance crew needs to be.” Simon calls it a “golden buzzer” performance. He calls them “game changers.”

Simon says that each of the Top 10 have the potential to win the show. And it all comes down to their last performances in the next two hours. Heh. Kodi Lee or V Unbeatable have this locked up. But of course, Simon won’t say that.

Are These AGT Contestants PREPARED For The FINALS?

Benicio Bryant, Light Balance Kids, Ndlovu Youth Choir, and Tyler Butler-Figueroa are ready to shine during the Season 14 FINALS!

Voices of Service – Singing quartet made up of active duty/vets – These vocalists are incredible, singularly and together. The female voice is phenomenal. The song they perform tonight, “Choke” by OneRepublic, about loss and remembrance is the fitting tribute to 911 we needed tonight, to be honest. As veterans, they’ve lived through wars and have dealt with PTSD. They are the real deal. THAT moved me. Simon calls it the best performance of the series. Julianne notes the dynamics of their vocals. “You put your purpose behind your passion,” she says. Queen thinks about her Vietnam vet dad. “I hope to see you in the finals….you are saving and changing lives.” 

Ryan Niemiller  – Birth defect left this comedian without hands – This dude is really funny. But also relatable and likable. He’s truly able to laugh at himself. It’s disarming! See what I did there. Heh. Tonight he’s telling some pretty funny travel jokes. He’s delivering a really hot routine tonight. He’s on fire! He’s a lock for the finals. As well he should be. Howie calls him a very funny talented comedian who deserves to be in the finals. Gabrielle can’t wait until his comedy special. Queen is still laughing. She’s waiting for the movie. Simon feels like he’s taking the audience along on his ride to the final. “You’ve got a shot at winning,” he says. 

10-Year-Old Opera Singer Emanne Beasha Will SHOCK YOU With Her Voice! – America's Got Talent 2019

Emanne Beasha – Fun fact. Her family is from Jordan. She previously won Arabs Got Talent. But they won’t tell you that. She’s got a Jay Leno unicorn with her, in honor of her golden buzzer patron. I don’t have much more to say about Emanne than I already have. Great Opera singing takes years of training. Not a thing meant for kiddies.

She’s singing an Italian opera version of a Bryan Adams power ballad. Eh. Julianne calls it “profound” She’s about to cry. Geez. Really? Simon calls her vocals “unbelievable, powerhouse.” and calls her “absolutely brilliant.” Gabrielle calls her an “angel on earth.” Queen calls her “unbelievable.” She appreciates her confidence. 

Marcin Patrzalek  – Teen guitarist – Nearly being eliminated last week lit a fire underneath Marcin. He’s an extremely talented guitarist, but it’s not the kind of thing folks connect to. Instrumentals bring no narrative. Technical brilliance isn’t enough on these shows, unfortunately. Marcin performs beautifully once again. He’s been consistent across the weeks. But can he beat a pandering 911 tribute? Probably not, unfortunately. The judges are on their feet! Julianne can see what the future holds for him. “Way to come back!” she says. Gabrielle says “You killed it up there.” Simon calls this performance “a sheep turning into a wolf….this by a mile was your best performance so far.” Gabrielle calls it “tight.” She loves the playing’s percussive elements. Howie hopes America votes him into the finals. So do I!

Alex Dowis  – Light Projection Artist – This time, Alex draws a 911 situation? Firemen appear? There’s a death, then CPR. A trip to heaven? Oh. This is a 911 tribute. Hm. One day before the 18th anniversary of one of the darkest days in American history. This was way too maudlin for my tastes. Also, he used a horrible tragedy to pander for votes. Nope. Nope. Nope. Howie didn’t follow every moment of it. I agree with him. It took me a minute to even figure out what was going on. Gabrielle says “There’s a place here for you.” Queen says, “You take people on a journey.” What you did was remarkable,” says Simon.

Detroit Youth Choir  – Choir – Terry’s Golden Buzzer –  The video package has the choir director watching a clip of the kids thanking him. TEARS. Ndlovu Youth Choir is already in the finals. Will Detroit Youth Choir make it? They sing “High Hopes.” It’s nice. I like what this choir represents. Working with underprivileged youth is noble and worthy of being highlighted, but as singers, these kids are high school level good, but not more. Queen says, “That’s entertainment.” She compliments the director. Gabrielle started off crying and never stopped! “You took us to praise and worship, you took us to a step show!” she gushes. Simon calls it “as good as your first audition.” He adds, ‘We all need a Mr. White in our lives.” He’s still crying from watching the video. “They work so hard,” he says. 

Chris Kläfford  – Singer who won Swedish Idol – Simon didn’t like his last original song. But winning the Dunkin Save gives him courage. He’s going to do it again. Hm…this is an OK song. It sounds dated–like a song that would chart in the aughts? This song gives him few opportunities to show off his sturdy range. His vocal falters at one point. Only Julianne stands. Howie loves him but…he doesn’t love his strategy. He notes that only “Imagine” got the Youtube views. Julianne calls it amazing. ‘I love it!” Gabrielle agrees with Julianne. She loves his originals. Queen is already at the concert! She’s hearing the song produced. She admires his guts. Simon thinks he should have repeated his Judge Cuts song. Hm. That song wasn’t better than last time. Chris barely made it out of the Quarterfinals. I doubt he makes it to the finals. 

Lukas & Falco Delivers Some Of The CUTEST And AMAZING Dog Tricks On AGT

Lukas & Falco – Dog act – WILDCARD – Lukas is texting…with his dog. Oh, the dog is being wined and dined by Hollywood suits. All he has to do is lose the human! This video package is cute. Of course, Falco comes back. Luke loves old school rock. This time, its an auto theme. Ooh. Lukas was trying to coax Falco to do something that he didn’t do? The dog is SOOO CUTE. But not only is this routine a rehash, but there are several mistakes in the routine.  The act is a hot mess tonight. When Falco jumps up on the judges table, he steps on Howie’s buzzer.  Howie loves the dog, but he wasn’t impressed. Simon is such a dog lover, he can’t accept the acts suckitude.  Simon insists that he LOVES Falco even more, despite the mistakes. Because of the mistakes! Spoken like a true stan. Gabrielle agrees. He kept trying! Queen wants to party with Falco. Eh. There’s no way they deserve to advance.

Luke Islam – Julianne’s Golden Buzzer – Of course, the key to touching Simon’s heart is to sing a song from his favorite movie, “The Greatest Showman.” He sings a dramatic version of “Never Enough.” But is it enough? He’s a few years away from being great. There are intonation problems and he’s not quite mature enough to grasp the song’s meaning. He’s still imitative. The judges are on their feet, though. Julianne feels like a “proud mama.” She says he’s a voice for all those people who have “never been enough.” She can’t wait to see him in the finals. Gabrielle calls him a world class talent. Howie is sure he’ll make it to Broadway. Queen compliments him for “being in that moment.” Hm. Simon gets no words.

Dom Chambers Performs New Magic That NO MAGICIAN Has EVER Done Before! 

Dom Chambers  – He is sure that he’s come up with a thing no magician has done before. The beer is back. He’s going to make them disappear this time. He works his way up from small glasses to bottles to MEGA BEER. It’s a giant glass full of the stuff. Terry comes on stage to help. Or not! He just came out on stage to help prove a giant beer is really involved. Before he makes mega beer disappear, Simon guesses a number that magically appears on a white board. Then, Dom slurps the entire beer….eh. I’m not impressed. The act had a few comedic moments, but I’m not blown away. Simon says he brought personality, scale and fun. “This may have put you through to the final. Howie agrees. Julianne loves his interactive story skills, “Thank you for including us.” Queen want to know about his brewski diet. He should have a gut, she says. Gabrielle says he brought it back to what made folks fall in love in the first place.

V. Unbeatable  – Dance/Tumblers from India – The group leader formed a dance group, despite the kids coming from poverty. They taught themselves to dance from Youtube videos, or so they say. This week, the group uses a ladder. And yes it’s scary. The kids climb up to the top and tumble off. AND THE LADDER MOVES AND SWINGS. The kids are stepping it up this week. It’s definitely the most dangerous routine they have performed on the show. Simon will like that! Yup. Thumbs up from him! “Very unbeatable! You guys are in it to win it,” he says. “I think your country are going to be so proud…I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing you..next week.” Queen is blown away. She calls it “on point.”  Julianne assures them, “Dance is for everyone!” She wants to learn from them.

Kodi Lee  – Blind/autistic singer/pianist – Gabrielle’s Golden Buzzer – Kodi’s family talk about growing up with an autistic brother. He didn’t like being touched, or express love. But the piano changed everything. He plays in the famed Capitol studios with his family all around. Tonight he performs Calum Scott’s “You are the Reason.” He delivers a good performance this week. His intonation is better than last time. Probably his best performance so far. Gabrielle says, ‘You just keep changing the world…you make the world a thousand percent better.” Simon compliments his special talent. “My breath was taken away.” Sean had tears in his eyes. He calls Kodi a gift. Howie calls him “magic.” 

Teen singer competed on The Voice Kids Germany recently – The 14 year old singer performs another original. He’s been thinking about being a star since he was 10 years old. Benicio needs to work on his enunciation.

Still, he’s the best kid singer in the competition right now. He might have been better off with a cover this week. The song is lackluster. Simon calls it “outstanding” nevertheless. He also calls him relevant. He’s sure he’ll make the final. Julianne agrees she loved the song’s lyrics. Sean is obsessed with him and his talent, and feels he can call him “Benny.” Gabrielle calls him a star. Howie criticized him for singing an original song last week. But he’s changed his mind and proceeds to slather him with compliments, comparing him to Harry Styles and Troye Sivan.

Eric Chien  – Close up magician – The last time, Simon advised Eric to go bigger. Julianne thought he shouldn’t change a thing. What will he do? Close up magic is his THING. But if he works in Vegas, he’ll need to switch it up. Yes, he actually ruminates on this in his video package. He starts off at a table with cards and a map. Eric is taking us on a virtual trip around the world. Is this his idea o going big? I guess so! Julianne is a little confused. That’s not good. Simon was waiting for something “ginormous” didn’t “have a bloody clue” what was going on. Howie calls him a great close up magician. Gabrielle was also confused, but wants him to advance anyway. It wasn’t the least bit confusing. He turned cards into little statues on a map. You could argue that it wasn’t exciting or a step up. But confusing? He did look really nervous on stage. Was that me, or was his hand shaking at times? He’s probably toast, unfortunately.

Light Balance Kids @lbkidsofficial – Light and Dance group from Ukraine – These Ukranian kids went to the beach for the first time! Sadly, the war in their country keeps people from following their dreams. Oh…this comic book vibe is fun to watch. The kiddos are flying superheroes that can stop anything. That was very good storytelling. Simon apologizes for dissing them last time. He loves their hard work and imagination. The act this week was definitely a step up.  Howie can see them in Vegas. Gabrielle says they set the stage on fire. Sean loves the choregraphy and technology. Julianne feels they’ve been better in the past. She didn’t like that the stepped into the Marvel universe. “You are your own brand” she says. 

Robert Finley – Blind R&B singer, also a Vietnam vet – His dad believed the blues was “the devils music” which influenced his decision to put music behind after he returned from Vietnam. Tonight, he’ll be playing the guitar. He’s digging into some old school blues this time, singing “age don’t mean a thing.” Oh man. This is about convincing a younger woman to give him a chance. OK then. His performances are consistent week to week. But maybe he’s wearing a bit thin? Sean calls him hip and cool and belongs in a Tarantino movie. Simon calls him cool and classy. He thought the band was too much, though. Hm. I don’t know if I agree. “It’s not quite the moment I need here.” OK for a minute I thought Simon was going with it. But no. Simon’s done with Robert. Howie says “I know the Jews, but not the blues.” 

Jackie Fabulous – Thirty something comedian – Jackie jokes in front of a “jury” how a donut saved her life last week. Remember, she started as a lawyer. Heh. For that reason, she probably will not advance to the finals. This week, she jokes about being a “fat actress” and a little bit in denial about it. Hm. She’s dipping into the B/C material this week. Howie is laughing, though. He calls her “fabulous.” He finds her funny, and more importantly, authentic. Gabrielle says she delivers every time she hits the stage. “You are really hot!” Sean calls her likable and hilarious. Julianne loves her big energy and essence. “You are hot stuff.” Unsurprisingly, Simon is dissing her. He liked her video clip better than the act. He’s done with Jackie, as well. Admittedly, however, she’s been stronger in the past. 

Greg Morton  – Impressionist does a zillion pop culture voices – His video package recreates kids on a school bus says “YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US.” Yikes. Cartoons got him through his childhood. He won the kids over by performing for them. So this week, he’ll be doing cartoon impressions. Which is fun. He races through the Hannah Barbera and Warner Brothers Oeuvre. It’s Baby Boomer paradise. THIS is why he’s popular. He brings back childhood memories. He can’t lose, even though he really has never presented a cogent act. Oh. He skips to the 80’s doing Simpsons voices. Then jokes that he can’t do Disney voices “COPYRIGHT.” Heh. He ends with the Nickelodeon era.  He imitates a voice that Howie does. Nice touch. Julianne hopes that animators are watching this. “You can do every single voice.” Oops. Simon wasn’t impressed. He calls it “a mess.” Uh. It’s no different than what he’s been doing, all along actually–just comics this time. Only five can go through this week. Simon is done with Greg.

Messoudi Brothers – Trio of beefy hand balancers – Over under on how fast the brothers rip off their shirts. Heh. C’mon, y’all are waiting for that. Admit it. Last time, Simon asked for more danger. They are going to attempt a trick that previously injured a brother. OH HA HA. They don’t even bother wearing shirts. Smart to cut to the chase. They invite Julianne on stage and make her part of the act. Threesome! Ha. She’s already back in her seat. OK when does this get dangerous? I halfway expect Simon to buzz them. I mean ALL OF IT is dangerous, how they balance on top of each other. Then end with a crazy configuration on top of a hydraulic that hoists them into the air and back again. “THANK YOU” says Julianne. “THAT WAS FANTASTIC.” She thinks they upped the ante. Simon feels they took his advice. I’m surprised he’s satisfied, actually. Gabrielle loves their smiles. “You wowed us.” Howie calls it fantastic. Sean is “absolutely blown away.” He says, “everything is bigger.” I bit of a double entendre there!

Tyler Butler-Figueroa  – Young violinist battled Leukemia – Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer – Tonight, Tyler is performing with fellow cancer survivors. He plays “Break Free” while a bunch of his pals cheer him on off stage. This week, he throws in a few dance moves. It’s a ery energetic performance. He’s not really topping himself here, but that probably doesn’t matter. The audience chants his name! Simon calls his story “unbelievable” but also, he’s a great showman and gutsy. “Joy and talent,” Simon says, “I think that’s going to put you in the final. Gabrielle calls him magical and brilliant. Sean is impressed how he moves and plays at the same time. Julianne felt his performance tonight went above and tonight. “You’re greatest trial has become your greatest triumph.” 

Ndlovu Youth Choir  – Youth choir hales from South Africa – They have become rock stars where they are from. Even the president wanted to meet them. Tonight, they sing “Higher Love” with an African beat. The solo singers are very good. Really, they are the best choir to ever compete on AGT, in my opinion. They are so well put together and professional. Better than the Detroit Youth Choir, who sailed into the semifinals easily. However, Ndlovu had to be saved last time–they are fighting an uphill battle at this point.  Gabriele says they delivered a Higher Love to all of us. She calls them inspiring. Julianne says, “You are making waves…what you are doing is global inclusion.” Howie calls the “beautiful.” Howie jokes about Simon’s glasses. Simon calls the performance in a way higher league than anything else they’ve done. “You really deserve a place in the final.” OK then. I expected Simon to bus them.

Ansley Burns  – Singer whom Simon made sing twice–twice) (Quarterfinal Wildcard) – She’s the only Wildcard to survive the Quarterfinals. In her video package, Ansley runs through how Simon kept asking her to sing twice. This week, she’s going to pick her OWN song (apparently friends and family picked the others. Hm). She loves Carrie Underwood, and sings “Cry Pretty.” Eh. Song picks aren’t going to fix Ansley in the short run. She needs time to develop vocally and emotionally. She’s imitating Carrie, all the way down to the way she moves on stage. Julianne is sure America love Ansley Burns. “You are a ray of sunshine,” she says. “America wants to root for you. Maybe the song overpowered her, she says. Sean compares her to Karen Carpenter. UHM NO. Gabrielle loves Ansley. “You are America’s underdog.” Howie thinks the song was too big for her. She needs her own TV show, he says. Simon did not like the staging. But he likes that he’s she’s gutsy and adorable. He asks America to vote based on every performance. Hm. That would mean sending her home…

When it comes right down to it–I don’t want to listen to a little kid singing opera. Yes, I felt the exact same way about Jackie Evancho. I’m not an opera fan, but obviously it’s the experience and training that makes a great singer. A tween can’t cut it. Shouldn’t have to cut it, really. The judges are on their feet. Simon says “You’re on a different planet from everyone else.” He compared it to watching the Olympics. “If you don’t get through, I will eat this judging table.” Julianne calls her an “icon” at 10 years old. Gabrielle says she just created millions of opera fans with her voice. Howie calls her an amazing talent. Hyperbole much? 

Jackie Fabulous – Comic – Her video package, about speed dating, leads to her routine that’s all about dating…white guys. And black dudes who have only dated white girls. Howie is laughing his head off during her routine. She is pretty funny. Gabrielle calls her “absolutely fabulous” and “a star.” Simon says it felt like she belongs here. He “prays” America puts her through. Howie calls her through and authentic. “I think America should vote for you.” he whispers. Julianne also calls her  a star. 

Mackenzie discovered his passion for music in church. Tonight he’s singing “Life on Mars” by David Bowie. Bold song choice. Last time he oversang. So far, it’s a strong, but restrained performance. He hits some big notes, but keeps it cool. Nice job. Simon looks bored. Howie says, “You have an amazing instrument.” But he’s worried America won’t think it’s enough. Gabrielle assures him that he’s enough, “We need America to vote.” Julianne loves his powerful, but subtle voice. However, she didn’t feel connected tonight. Simon only liked the last 20 seconds of the song. Eh. I liked that he didn’t scream his way through the song this time. 

Matthew is back. In his video package, Matthew reveals he’s had two major injuries. Tonight, he’ll do something he hasn’t done before. Tonight’s act involves glitter and water and Matthew’s elegant and athletic moves on his giant hoop. Simon buzzed him? Why? He’s ridiculous. This is beautiful to watch. He ends, taking the hoop high in the air and finally down again. Julianne is on her feet. “You do belong. I think it shows tenacity,” she says. Simon can’t see it going any further. The crowd boos him. Rightfully. Julianne begins arguing with him. Gabrielle calls it “spicy.” Heh. “Jennifer Beals Flashdance realness,” she says. Howie agrees with Simon.

Marcin Patrzalek  – Teen guitar wiz – He’s been writing music since he was 12. He can be inspired by anything! The young musician delivers another jaw dropping performance on the guitar. WATCH HIS FINGERS FLY. Oh my. He should make the final. Gabrielle is blown away. “You are such a rockstar.” Julianne gets up to dance. She can’t help herself! “You create what other creators pull from…artistry at its finest,” she says. Simon thought the song was all over the place, but technically, he’s one of the most talented ever. “Ever thought about the tambourine?” snarks Howie. 

Eric Chien – Magician – He was raised in America, but born in Taiwan. He had to go back for mandatory military service. He couldn’t bring cards with him, so he learned to use found objects, and it helped his creativity immensely.  Julianne will serve as his assistant tonight.

This time, Eric works magic with M & Ms. He creates mini rubiks cubes out of the candy. Julianne mixes up the cubes. Eric sucks them up into a container and they come out…solved of course! And then he turns the cubes back into chocolates. Pretty cool. Howie calls it crazy “Magic melts in your hands, not in your mouth.” He thinks there is room for TWO magicians tonight. Gabrielle was not disappointed, “You raised the level of competition.” Simon thinks Dom was better than Eric. He’s getting bored. Uh oh. Simon just threw him under the bus. “I don’t know how you did that,” says Julianne, who was sitting next to him. Eric promises, if he makes it to the semis, to make the act bigger

In Benicio’s video package, he sings the National Anthem at a Mariners game. His dad is so proud! Tonight, he’s singing another original song. His originals have actually been pretty good. His vocals are high, strong and sweet. He sings with surprising emotion for a young teen. He reminds me a little of that Greyson Chance from a few years ago. Julianne has been waiting for this moment! She calls it “risky.” She thinks he did an “unbelievable” job. Simon says, “I love you…you have a natural talent.” He would have stripped the song down more, though. “You have a great future ahead of you.” Howie didn’t respond to the song. He really doesn’t go for original songs, it seems. Gabrielle calls him a rock star. “You have it.”

His shtick is all about using everyday items. He’s keenly aware that Eric Chien, the close up magician, is big time competition. This week, he will huge BIG pieces. He’s using a screen to create many versions of himself. Oh. He’s doing quick change with a video screen. Terry Crews helps out with the act. The screen, Brady Bunch style, contains photos of various AGT alums. Everyone is supposed to point to a photo after a confusing set of instructions. Apparently, everyone was pointing at Tape Face. And Dom was so sure he was the pick, there’s Tape Face, in the studio in person! Dom also predicted that Simon would NOT stand up.  I’m not sure what happened there, but it seemed sorta cool? Julianne says, “You make magic cool.” Simon says, “I swear to God this was not planned. It was genius. Your best performance by a mile.” Howie says. “You are amazing.” Gabrielle says, “You make people believe.” 

Falco the dog will soon be too old to perform. Lukas is bringing brand new tricks to the act tonight, he says. They perform to Blink 182’s “All The Small Things” in some sort of mushroom patch. Oh! It’s Mario Kart thing. Got it. Falco jumps rope tonight, which is new! Lukas does a mini handstand and they touch feets. It’s a cute act.  The tricks are just OK, but that doggo is so adorable.  Simon loves the dog. “Falco was better than you,” says Simon who compliments Lukas kindness to the dog. Gabrielle says he upped the ante. Julianne agrees “It got 10 times better.” Howie disagrees! He didn’t see new tricks. Simon and Julianne buzz him.  Booooo Howie BOOOOO.

Detroit Youth Choir – Terry Crews Golden Buzzer – Terry gets choked up even thinking about his Golden Buzzer act. The choir exists, says the video package, to give underprivileged kids a voice. They’re singing Carrie Underwood’s “The Champion.

” They seem like hard working kids, but the African choir has it going on. Likely only one (if any) will make it to the finals. Standing ovation from the judges and the crowd. “Hallelujah!” says Gabrielle. The crowd is shouting. “You deserve all of it,” she says. Howie compliments the choir director, calling him a hero. Julianne calls them “bigger than AGT. You guys are better when you’re together.” Simon calls them “bloody fantastic” and “better than your first audition.”

The group is from South Africa and have overcome poverty and difficulties on their way to the AGT stage. The sing U2’s “It’s a Beautiful Day.” I’ll say it again. I usually don’t care for the choirs. But this group is so talented, so well rehearsed, so uplifting they are impossible to resist. I hope they make it to the final. Ha. Simon is covered in streamers. “You set the stage on fire,” says Gabrielle. Simon loves their enthusiasm, great song choice. “Everything just clicked.” Julianne says, “You guys come on this show to self-express and show us who we are.” Howie says “You are our winder to the world, you are our sunshine. You inspire, you entertain.”

 

Light Balance Kids – Blacklight Act – Ellie Kemper’s Golden Buzzer – This offshoot of the popular Light Balance act is entertaining. Ohh. They do a spooky thing in skeleton outfits. It’s cool. But like V. Unbeatable, it’s hard to top what they’ve already done. And these blacklight acts don’t translate well to television. That was not a step up. Gabrielle, however, felt they topped themselves. Julianne gushes, “that was unbelievable.” Oohhh. Simon is gonna tell the truth. “This didn’t have the wow factor…this felt tame compared to your previous performances.” He compares their energy to V. Unbeatable, which is actually unfair. Howie is with the girls. He can’t believe Simon hated the Billie Eilish song. The music was OK. But Simon was right. That was boring.

Tyler Butler-Figueroa – Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer – Tyler was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 4. After three years of chemotherapy, he is in remission. His mom says he spent years in the hospital. Aw. He goes back to the hospital to play violin for the patients. He plays “Don’t You Worry Child” by the Swedish House Mafia. It’s a very energetic performance. No electric violin for Tyler! He goes old school with a wooden instrument. Simon calls him “America’s Golden Buzzer…HASHTAG amazing, inspirational, current…such a great person, such a great talent.” He hopes a big DJ comes on the show if Tyler makes the final. Howie thinks people should vote him though just for overcoming so much. Gabrielle believes he may inspire kids to put down their controllers and pick up an instrument. Julianne calls him an incredible artist and an incredible human being. 

Howie Mandel’s Golden Buzzer – I barely remember this guy, except as the guy who inexplicably got Howie’s golden buzzer. In his video package, he cries thinking about how far he’s come. He sings an original song, dedicated to his mom. It’s a mixture of rap and singing. Eh. It’s just OK? Howie calls him a shining light. “I could feel the pride shooting over our heads.” Gabrielle loves a vulnerable man, “You put your heart on this stage.” Julianne agrees with Gabrielle. She advises him not to compare himself to anybody. She felt a little apprehension. “Just be you.” Simon thought the best part of his song was his parents’ reaction from the audience, but otherwise, the performance was unremarkable. I agree with Simon, except I thought his audition was also mediocre. Joseph says “the way you treat your mom, is the way you’ll treat your wife.” Well, that will net him some votes.

Acrobatic Dance Troupe – Dwyane Wade’s Golden Buzzer – These boys have been spectacular, but they are in a position now, that it’s tough to top what they’ve done so far. The stagecraft is snazzy, including pyrotechnics. But I don’t think they’ve upped their game from last time.  “Every time we see you guys, you push the boundaries,” he says, “You make every second of those two minutes count.” Julianne says a clap isn’t enough, “You literally raise the game. This is the best performance of the night.” Gabrielle notes they were her husband’s golden buzzer. “It takes a champion to see a champion.” Howie calls it the “best performance I have ever watched.” He’s taking his entire 10 years on AGT. OK. These boys are good, but this praise is a little OT. 

The Sentimentalists – Mentalists – WILDCARD – These two are a fairly mediocre mentalist act, so why bring them back? Tonight, their bit is centered on touch. So of course, they bring Howie on stage. As he tries delicious desserts, the female mentalist guesses what he’s eating. She also guesses that Gabrielle is chewing bubble gum. Eh. She’s probably wearing an earpiece or something. This is boring. Wait. She didn’t guess Julianne’s correctly? I’m confused. This act can’t put together a cohesive bit. Julianne thought the act was sloppy. They have been from the beginning. Simon called it a “total mess.” Yeah. That was bad. 

The Sentimentalists – Mentalists – WILDCARD – These two are a fairly mediocre mentalist act, so why bring them back? Tonight, their bit is centered on touch. So of course, they bring Howie on stage. As he tries delicious desserts, the female mentalist guesses what he’s eating. She also guesses that Gabrielle is chewing bubble gum. Eh. She’s probably wearing an earpiece or something. This is boring. Wait. She didn’t guess Julianne’s correctly? I’m confused. This act can’t put together a cohesive bit. Julianne thought the act was sloppy. They have been from the beginning. Simon called it a “total mess.” Yeah. That was bad. 

Ryan Niemiller – Comedian – Ryan was born without arms and hands. He felt sorry for himself at first, but then learned to control his narrative. He played football and was crowned homecoming king in high school. “I wan’t you to vote for me because I’m the funniest person you’ve ever seen.” Tonight, his jokes are about getting in shape and making New Year’s resolutions. Also trailer jokes. His tweeter handle is @CrippleThreat8. Heh. Howie calls him wonderful, memorable, funny, smart. Julianne says he was born to be on the stage. “This is your lane,” she says. Simon says, “You’re born to do this…everything worked.” He believes Ryan will be in the semi-finals. He is a pretty funny dude. Also, his positive attitude is infectious. 

V. Unbeatable – Acrobatic Dance Troupe – Dwyane Wade’s Golden Buzzer –

Robert Finley is finally living his dream by singing his original song on the biggest stage in the world!

 He’s a 65 year old veteran who lost his sight to glaucoma. Tonight, he’ll perform a song about his AGT experience. It’s too bad he didn’t hit back in the 70’s. It would have been his time. His voice oozes classic R&B. Simon looks happy for the first time tonight. The original he’s performing is an upbeat bluesy thing about all the love AGT has “given to me.” Robert’s daughter is singing backups. Gabrielly calls him “a gift to us all.” Howie wonders if the song will connect to young people. Howie is cute. He thinks kids are voting for AGT contestants. Julianne disagree
