Comic Usama Siddiquee also joked about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, feminism, and women’s voting rights in her controversial support routine.
The top 10 of “America’s Got Talent” is set.
Wednesday’s results revealed the latest acts to happen in the end after “voting was the closest to the entire season,” host Terry Crews said at the top of the show.
But before we get to the results, let’s talk about one of the most important acts in the world: BTS. The group K-pop brought warmth to the famous Universal Studios Hollywood batch with their hit number 1 “Dyanmite”, BTS ‘first English single.
The results also show guest appearances from the “AGT” royalty, including mentalist Colin Cloud, magician Shin Lim, ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer and reigning champion Kodi Lee.
And now, Lee is ready to pass the torch to the next champion “AGT”, who will be crowned in just one week.

Five acts came one step closer to earning a million dollars, while another six had their dreams shattered. Sofía Vergara said: “It will be hard to say goodbye to some of these amazing artists.”
Here’s what happened:
The options of the fans
The three acts that got the most votes automatically advanced.
Singer Cristina Rae, winner of Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer, was the first to move on. On Tuesday, Rae dedicated an emotional rendition of Cynthia Erivo’s “Jump” to her son, Jeremiah.
“We’ll end this trip together,” Klum exclaimed. “I’m very excited for you. You’re a great inspiration to so many, including your little son who is watching.”
Daneliya Tuleshova joined Rae in the safe zone shortly after. The teenager held back tears as he thanked “America for your votes. I’m very happy”.
Vergara advised the young singer to stay true to herself in the final and said, “She knows what she’s doing. She’s already a star.”
The acrobatic trio Bello Sisters, which was joined by satellite from Germany due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, advanced next. The sisters said going to the end is “beyond anything we’ve ever dreamed of.”
Last night on ‘AGT’: Howie Mandel ‘terrified’ by the act of ardent reckless semi-finals; Sofía Vergara calls it “cuckoo”
Mandel said “the United States made the right decision.” He added: “We’ve seen acrobats and athletes before, but never three beautiful women with that kind of strength.”
Singer Kenadi Dodds, dance duo Bad Salsa and magician Max Major finished in the middle of the group and were on the verge of elimination.
“Right now I’m confused by the three of you,” Mandel said. “I can’t believe it’s the three of you (on the chopping block).”
The three acts clashed in a round of live voting for “Dunkin’ Save, ”where fans had a chance to rescue just one performer. The one who received the most votes in a quick 30-minute round would go on.
In the end, the spectators saved Dodds.
“I was sitting here hoping it would be you,” Klum said. “You really deserve to go to the end.”
But the results were not over yet. The judges had a chance to decide who got the last place in the final: Bad Salsa or Major.
“This is the only part of my new job that I hate. … I’ll have to pick one or they’ll fire me,” Vergara said before choosing Bad Salsa to stay.
Klum didn’t even have to make a selection, because Mandel voted to save Bad Salsa.
The five acts with the fewest votes: singer Celina Graves, sword ambassador Brett Loudermilk and the daring Jonathan Goodwin; the dance group WAFFLE Crew (winner of Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer) and Voices of our City Choir (winner of Crew’s Golden Buzzer) – were eliminated.
Major was also sent packing.
“America’s Got Talent” will return on Sept. 22 to the finals (NBC, 8th EDT / PDT), where the top ten will have one last chance to make America fly.
And the competition is loaded with talent. Finalists include three gold bell winners: spoken word poet Brandon Leake (Mandel) and singers Roberta Battaglia (Vergara) and Rae (Klum), along with aerialist Alan Silva, Bello Sisters and Bad Salsa, and singers Archie Williams, Tuleshova, Dodds and the duo Broken Roots.
