What's This?

‘America’s Got Talent’ is full of surprises this year. Find out which acts made it to the finals from the first group of semifinal contestants.


Only 5 acts out of 11 participants made it to the finals. Here they are:

Grace VanderWaal

Grace VanderWaal has proved time and again that she completely deserved to get the Golden Buzzer from Howie Mandel during the auditions. Her original compositions, combined with her ability to play the ukulele, have won the hearts of the AGT judges time and again. Her semifinal performance was no different.

It allowed her to move ahead in the race after defeating the likes of a musical chorus called Musicality and tween standup comedy artist Lori Mae Hernandez, reports Heavy.

Sal Valentinetti

Another wise Golden Buzzer pick, this time by Heidi Klum, Sal Valentinetti is not only a singer but a performer. He has the complete package from a very old-school voice, that chimes out classics, to a very charismatic persona that captivates the audience when he is on stage.

When it came down to choosing between him and the macho dance troupe, Malevo, America chose Sal.

Jon Dorenbos

Jon Dorenbos represents the very emblem that with enough hard work, dedication and faith, one can turn their lives around. Having used magic as a form of escapism, Jon, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, decided to try out his luck in “America’s Got Talent” and show off his magic skills.

As a result, he clinched the Golden Buzzer during his Judge Cuts performance. And on the Semifinals, he beat another fellow magician and a knife-thrower to win a place in the Finals, reports Just Jared.

Tape Face

No one expected him to progress much far without shedding off his signature black tape across his mouth but Tape Face has miraculously managed to keep his mouth shut until now in the competition. He has managed to bring something simple, yet uncannily funny in every performance, all without speaking a single word!

Even though he managed to make it by a hair-breadth difference during the results of the first semifinals, it does count as a win!

Laura Bretan

She is Mel B’s Golden Buzzer and the only opera singer on AGT this year. What’s more, she is just 13 years old! She easily managed to win “Romania’s Got Talent”, but is having to face a harsher audience this time on “America’s Got Talent”.

Despite delivering a powerful performance in the semifinals, she had to reply on the judges to vote her into the finals.
