Tonight, it’s the America’s Got Talent 2017 Live Show 1 RESULTS. We live blog which of the SEVEN acts advance to the next round, according to your votes.
Featuring creator and executive producer Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel on the judges panel, and host, Tyra Banks.
PLUS, last year’s America’s Got Talent winner Grace Vanderwaal performs.
After the usual recap, where fake Donald Trump comforted a very sad Puddles the Clown, Mel lost herself in a yummy group hug with In the Stairwell, and more, it’s time to introduce the judges.
Heidi compliments Tyra on her first live show. OH THE DUNKIN SAVE IS BACK. Here are the acts in 6, 7 and 8 place: Christian Guardino, Just Jerk and Yoli Mayor. Ya’ll got 30 minutes to save your favorite. Go to nbc.com TO VOTE. Or use the AGT phone app.
Time for results! Aryana and Paige and In the Stairwell step forward. In the Stairwell are safe. The guys say they are so honored to wear their military uniforms on stage. Next the Singing Trump, Puddles Pity Party and Preacher Lawson step forward. The next act going into the semifinals is Preacher Lawson.
Tyra chats with Fake Trump, who says he had the greatest time in his life, before plugging his Vegas show. Tyra awkwardly chastises his self promotion. Eliminating the kid dancers was weird? Tyra never actually said they were eliminated, and then the two just disappeared off the stage. Tyra reveals the results in a super serious voice. Tyra, it’s America’s Got Talent. Not the apocalypse. Girl’s got to work on her results show game.
Next it’s a performance from tween singer songwriter, Grace Vanderwaal. She won the competition last year and seems to be on her way to good things. She’s got her ukulele and sings her latest single “Moonlight.” After the performance, Grace says she’s proof that the show changes lives. She’s like Madonna with that weird accent. Isn’t Grace from Long Island or something?
Next, it’s a video package featuring Howie infiltrating AGT auditions while impersonating a middle aged lady. Silliness ensues.
More results: Darci Lynne and Angelica Hale take the stage. I bet they both make it through. Geez. Angelica is crying. Tyra stretches it WAAAYYYY out before she says “BOTH OF YOU!” make it through. Angelica begins crying even harder. Both are upset they had to go against each other. Grrr. Kids should never be used as pawns for results show dramatics.
The last two acts step forward: Bello Nock and Billy and Emily England. Billy and Emily advance. Bello, who was cannon fodder anyway, is eliminated.
Tyra announces that this season’s AGT winner will headline a show at Planet Hollywood in Vegas November 3rd and 4th.
