Quarterfinals: Week 1 Results
America watched live as 12 incredible acts pushed their talents to the limit. But was that enough to secure America's vote? Tonight the results are in, and over half will go home, with five acts moving on to the semifinals. Nick calls up the first groups up for elimination - Jasmine Flowers, Emily West and Valo & Bobby. After a dramatic pause, Nick reveals who will go to the semifinals - singer Emily West!
Next up, Nick summons three more acts to the stage - Dan Naturman, The Willis Clan and Sean & Luke. After a long pause, Nick announces America's choice to go into the semifinals is... comedian Dan Naturman! Nick wastes little time in asking Julia Goodwin, JD Anderson and Miguel Dakota to step forward next. The drama reaches a peak before he reads the result from America's vote - Miguel Dakota!
Nick switches gears and invites TODAY Show hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie to take the stage and reveal the winner of the TODAY's Got Talent contest. Thousands of excellent acts auditioned for the opportunity to skip straight to the AGT Quarterfinals and become the 48th act, but only one made the cut, dance team Cornell Bhangra.
The remaining three acts from Tuesday's show step up next - David and Leeman, Baila Conmigo and Flight Crew Jump Rope. Nick announces the result from America's vote and... magicians David and Leeman will go on to the semifinals! But there's one still one spot left and now the toughest decision of the night lies in the hands of the four judges. After considerable debate, each judge submits their vote and, in the end, the judges choose to save... salsa dancers Baila Conmigo!
