Three acts from Tuesday's America's Got Talent show were sent through to next week's finals, moving them closer to that $1 million prize and a Vegas show.
Who made it?
Nick Cannon introduced the three judges - Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel, all of whom did their signature hellos - before getting down to business.
Here's how it unfolded:
First group brought on stage: Father-daughter act Shanice and Maurice Hayes, cloggers All That! and Lightwire Theater. Sharon forgot Maurice's name when commenting on them, prompting Howard to say, "Someone's been drinking in their dressing room!" Advancing to the Top Four: Lightwire Theater.
Second group brought on stage: Awkward comedian Jacob Williams, insta-artist David Girabaldi and his CMYK's and Sebastien "El Charro De Oro." Advancing to the Top Four: David Girabaldi and his CMYK's.
In a break from the results, white comic magician Nathan Burton fried himself in a microwave and became a black dancer. And Dee Snider performed with kid rock group Haunted by Heroes.
Third group brought on stage: Clint Carvahlo & His Extreme Parrots, Olate Dogs and All Wheel Sports. In the Top Four: Olate Dogs.
Final group on stage: Singer Tim Hockenberry, crying kid dance group The Untouchables and The Magic of Puck. "This is like comparing apples to oranges," said Howie, adding that each group deserved a spot in the finals. Moving into the Top Four: The Untouchables. The little dance star who could not stop shedding tears last night had a big smile. "I'm over all that crying," she told Nick Cannon.
Before we got to the final three, Train performed its hit Drive By.
And finally for the finals. Two were announced: The Untouchables and Olate Dogs.
That meant the judges had to decide between Lightwire Theater and David Garibaldi and his CMYK's. Tough choice.
In the end, Sharon said "both are equally as artistic and creative ... this should never have happened." She voted for Lightwire Theater.
Howie said, "You are both million-dollar acts." He said he was going to go with his "gut" and picked David Garibaldi and his CMYK's.
Said Howard, "It's gotta be who would I go see." Although he didn't like their Statue of Liberty artwork from Tuesday, he said, "I have a true gut feeling David belongs in the finals. ... Lightwire, I'm sorry, you're fabulous."
David Garibaldi and his CMYK's will join The Untouchables and Olate Dogs in competing against William Close and his Giant Earth Harp, sand artist Joe Castillo and comedian Tom Cotter.
The final performance show airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on NBC. A winner will be crowned on Talent's Thursday show at 8 p.m. ET.
