Tonight’s episode of “America’s Got Talent” will reveal who was cut from the competition after last night’s show.

The show starts off revisiting contortionist Vello Vaher’s performance. Simon gave the performance a red X but the other judges appreciated his unique talents.

Up next was singer Ronee Martin, whose performance of “Lean On Me” impressed the judges. Magician Kadan Bart Rockett and his sister Brooklyn. Their escape performance wowed the judges who were impressed by the showmanship and level of skill involved.

Linkin’ Bridge performed “You Are Always On My Mind” to positive reviews overall; Simon didn’t like the song choice, but liked the group overall.

Next up were dancers Daniel Joyner and his mother Alla, whose upbeat dance routine was not received favorably by the judges: Howie gave the dancing duo a red X and Simon suggested that Daniel go solo instead of dancing with his mom.

Magician Blake Vogt was next to take the stage and his several trick act blew the judges away.

Family musical group Edgar’s performance of “You’ve Got a Friend” was revisited next.  The family received a standing ovation from the judges.

Comedian Julia Scotti’s inappropriate routine resonated with the judges who liked her style.

Brazilian dance group Malevo competed next and received a standing ovation from the judges.

Juggling duo The Passing Zone were up next and their juggling of Howie, Mel B. and Heidi got positive, but not overly enthusiastic, feedback from the judges.

The final performance of the night was fan favorite Grace Vanderwaal who not only received a standing ovation from the judges for her original song but received the highest praise of the night including Howie’s statement that she is the biggest star that the show has ever produced.

The Live Results portion of the show begins with Nick Cannon introducing Michael Phelps to the crowd.
