America’s Got Talent 2016 Results Live Blog – Live Show 3

America’s Got Talent 2016 THIRD LIVE RESULTS SHOW airs tonight. Seven acts will advance, FIVE acts will go home based on YOUR VOTES.  Simon Cowell, Mel B., Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel sit on the panel.

Olympic champion, Michael Phelps is on hand as Nick Cannon’s guest co-host tonight. Aw. Little Boomer is in the audience. The audience breaks out into a chant of USA USA USA. Michael feels like he was able to retire the way he wanted to, after winning a total of 23 gold medals.

Next a recap…and if you watched the clip show at 8, you can take a snack break now. FYI: After Ronee Martin performed, Simon Cowell wondered if she could sell records at 62. Daniel, from the Mother/Son dance act, was REALLY crying after Howie buzzed and criticized him. Boo. Howie’s a dick.

The THREE acts in danger (6th 7th and 8th place, in no particular order) are… Linkin Bridge, Malevo and Ronee Martin. Hm.

Do a Google search on Dunkin Save and VOTE! The voting window is 30 minutes. America will save ONE act. The judges will save another.

Results! Alla and Daniel, Kaden Bart Rocket take the stage. The dancers have to know they are toast. Kaden Bart Rocket advance, Alla and Daniel head home. The little magicians cry when hearing they are safe.

Grace Vanderwaal and Brian Justin Crum. I BET 100 COOKIES THEY ARE BOTH SAFE. (This shtick happens every week). And…Nick shouts…BOTH OF YOU! Howie declares that we’re looking at the finals. Simon is so cute pretending he does not know the results.

Next, former contestants, Recycled Percussion, bring their drumming act to the America’s Got Talent stage. Apparently, they have a show in Vegas. I’m a little confused. “We’re an American Band” track plays. I guess they drum along? And the guitarist? Then a dude shows up with a welding tool? Sorry, but this isn’t an act. I mean, people pay to see that? Michael Phelps is sitting with the judges. He thought it was “awesome.”

More results! Julia Scotti, Vello Vaher and Edgar take the stage. The next act into the semifinals is…Edgar! Julia and Vello are eliminated.

The Passing Zone and Blake Vogt remain. The next act going into the semifinals is…Blake Vogt! The Passing Zone is eliminated. Sorry Simon. You won’t be part of their act.

Michael Phelps is back on stage giving the acts advice. Just get out there and have fun! That’s not cliched or not. Hm. In a clip, Simon ranks the rest of the judges, based on topics, or something.

Time to announce the Dunkin Save. America saved…Malevo! America saves the hot guys. The choreographer takes the stage to say a few words of thanks.

Linkin Bridge and Ronee Martin remain. The judges will decide.

Mel B – Linkin Bridge
Howie – Linkin Bridge
Heidi – Ronee Martin
Simon – Linkin Bridge

I KNEW the judges wouldn’t deadlock like they did for the first two weeks of the live shows. Simon doesn’t believe Ronee is marketable. And an a’cappella group with a touching backstory makes for better TV.

Four singing acts advanced tonight! We’re all in agreement that vocalists will take it all this year right?  Still, I was a little surprised that Julia Scotti, the transgender female comedian was sent home. I also expected Passing Zone to advance after a splashy act featuring the judges. However, Blake Vogt showed more skill, so I’m glad he advanced instead.
