Magician Mat Franco and last year’s winner Kodi Lee will perform tonight.

Kelly says she loved her first time judging AGT “Y’all are such a good time!”

Here’s how it will work: The Top 3 acts will go straight through to the semi-finals. But the acts in fourth, fifth and sixth place are in DANGER. Those acts are in danger: Brett Loudermilk, Feng-E and Double Dragon. Vote at or on the App. DANG. Brett and Feng-E deserve to go through.

The first act going into the semi-finals is…Archie Williams. Michael Yo and Annaliese and Bello Nock are eliminated. Hoo boy, the look on Michael’s face. Like “YEP I’M TOAST.”

Next, magician extraordinaire Mat Franco takes the stage. He won America’s Got Talent season 9 in 2014. He does a card trick with the help of Kelly Clarkson and Heidi Klum. By the end of the bit, Kelly is yelling WHAT??? WHAT??? Ha ha.

More results: Frenchiebabyy, Shaquira McGrath step forward. The next act going into the semifinals is…Shaquira McGrath. Frenchiebabyy is eliminated.

Now, Roberta Battaglia, Pork Chop Revue and Simon and Maria step forward. America has voted. The next act going to the semifinals is Roberta Battaglia. Of course it’s Roberta! She’s crying.

Next, the reigning America’s Got Talent winner, Kodi Lee is here to sing “Break My Heart Again.” As always, his mom is next to him on the piano to help Kodi get ready to perform. After, the emotional performance, the judges are on their feet. 

Now, it’s time to reveal the Dunkin Save! Brett Loudermilk, Feng-E and Double Dragon are in danger. The act going through to the semifinals is…Brett Loudermilk! I voted for him! He seems a little surprised! 

The judges will choose the fifth and final spot in the semifinals. Heidi Klum talking time difference as if Feng-E didn’t film that performance earlier…

Heidi Klum – Double Dragon
Sofia Vergara – Double Dragon
Kelly Clarkson – Feng-E
Howie Mandel – Double Dragon

WHAT THE HECK. Feng-E deserved that spot. Double Dragon are amusing, but they aren’t that talented. Kelly Clarkson, the ONLY ONE WITH SENSE.
