Howie says he’s very happy about this and the point was from where he was sitting he was amazed by the act; he knew America at home would enjoy it.

The two last acts left to the judges choice to move on are Kelli Glover and One Voice Children’s Choir, we get another look at their performances last night to give the judges a little reminder of what they are judging on.
