America’s Got Talent Heads Toward Semi-Finals [updated]

AGT Semi-Finals

[Updated: August 21, 2018 Semi-finalists in list at the bottom of the post highlighted in bold]

America’s Got Talent (AGT) by design, offers a mixed bag of awesome performances and completely silly, nonsensical and sometimes embarrassing “entertainment” acts. Unlike rival American Idol,  AGT doesn’t focus just on signing, though singers often win, even if they do so behind some incredible ventriloquism.

The AGT Semi-finals will run September 4 and 11, with the results shows on September 5 and 12th. The final live show will be September 18th with the winner announced September 19th.

The next round of contestants will perform live on Tuesday, August 21 at 8pm Eastern. If you want to participate in the live vote, watch the AGT social media channels for information about when the voting opens. This is an attempt to include Central and Pacific-time viewers in the results, which typically skew toward the Eastern time zone.

Here are the acts that moved on to the semi-finals following last week’s shows. All performances embedded from YouTube represent America’s Got Talent Season 13, 2018 performances.

The acts above performed at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood to perform live for America’s vote on Tuesday, Aug. 14 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT). The first 12 acts of the top 36 took the stage to perform for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and host Tyra Banks. Viewers choose their favorite act by phone, on NBC.com, and via the AGT app (available on the App Store and Google Play). New to season 13, Xfinity X1 customers are now able to vote via their set-top box during the live broadcast of the show by saying “Vote for AGT” into the X1 voice remote or by pressing the remote’s Info button. Xfinity’s parent company, Comcast, owns NBCUniversal, the home of AGT.

Fans will also have the chance to save an act each week during the Wednesday results show via the Dunkin Save.

Contestants are competing for a $1 million grand prize and a headline show at the Paris Theater at Paris Las Vegas Nov. 2-4.
