The third and final Quarterfinals episode of “America’s Got Talent” aired Tuesday, August 27 on NBC (read our live blog). Seven of this week’s 12 acts will go through to the Semifinals based on America’s vote, while five will be eliminated.
Gold Derby readers have been making their predictions all week for who they think will be saying goodbye during Wednesday’s results episode, and things are not looking good for beatboxers Berywam, magician Dom Chambers, tambourinist Gonzo and wild card aerialist Matthew Richardson. While these four acts are the most likely to be eliminated, which fifth act may be joining them?
On the flip side, the six acts who seem to be the safest heading into the third live results show of “AGT” Season 14 are singer Benicio Bryant, chorale group Detroit Youth Choir, singer Emanne Beasha, magician Eric Chien, stand-up comedian Jackie Fabulous and guitarist Marcin Patrzalek. These half-dozen contenders should all sail through to the Semifinals based on America’s overnight votes, unless something crazy happens on Wednesday night.
One night after the third group of 12 contestants hit the America's Got Talent stage to show off their impressive skills during the final night of the Season 14 quarterfinals, the contestants reunited in the spotlight to find out who will be moving on to the semifinals, and who will be sent home.
This week's live results show began with something of a shocker when they announced which three acts were in the bottom three, and would be vying for the Dunkin' Save: stand-up comedian Jackie Fabulous, mind-blowing guitarist Marcin Patrzalek and the adorable dog act Lukas & Falco.
Being in the bottom three meant fans could once again vote during the show to save one, while the judges would be tasked with saving one of the other acts. It was a responsibility that hung over the show for the entire hour.
Only seven acts in total were able to move forward, and it was an exclusive group that was revealed over a surprising, tense night of eliminations and results.
Jay Leno‘s Golden Buzzer, 10-year-old opera singer Emanne Beasha, returned to “America’s Got Talent” this week in the live Quarterfinals 3 episode with a powerful rendition of “Ebben.” In her two-minute performance the Amman, Jordan native earned some of the best judges’ critiques of the entire 14th season so far, with Simon Cowell being “gobsmacked” and Julianne Hough raving she’s “mind-blowing.” Will Emanne make it all the way and ultimately join the “AGT” winners list? Watch the performance video above, read the judges’ comments below and then make your predictions before Wednesday’s results show.
Simon Cowell: “Emanne, I mean look, you’re not just on a different league tonight, you’re on a different planet from everyone else. Honest to god, your voice from a 10-year-old, it was like being hit by something. This is one of those times I’m gonna remmeber. It’s like watching the Olympics when someone with a god-given talent does something so amazing you’re just gobsmacked. If you don’t get through I will eat this judging table after that. That was unbelievable.”
Julianne Hough: “What you just did transcended anything that I have ever heard. Whether you’re 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or 60 years old, that was beyond anything that I have ever heard. You are literally an icon at 10 years old because people are going to be trying to follow in your footsteps. That was mind-blowing. I’m in awe.”
After three weeks of quarter-finals, America's Got Talent is finally heading onto its semifinals that are scheduled to start next week on September 3rd. Throughout the course of the last three weeks, we saw the contestants move from the Judge Cuts, perform for a chance to get America's vote and move forward to the semifinals. Out of the 36 contestants that performed, only 21 contestants made the cut and moved on to the semifinal that is set to air live from next week.
Amongst the 21 contestants who performed, quite a few of them became fan favorites and the high number of votes were proof of that. Though everyone who moved on to the semifinals are unique in their own way, sadly not everyone can win the $1 million prize and a grand opportunity to headline at a Las Vegas casino showroom. With that said, the finale is just around the corner. While the semifinals are set to air live from September 3rd, and we are yet to see the contestants perform, there are a few frontrunners who have a higher chance of moving to the semifinals with fan and viewers votes.
Emanne Beasha has the voice of someone twice her age, and the young singer has stunned audiences with every performance of hers. During the Judge Cuts, she even won the Golden Buzzer from Jay Leno. With an operatic voice, she looked calm and composed through each performance of hers, bringing her best to the stage. Fearless, her performance was the highlight of the final week of the quarterfinals. Cowell even commented saying she is on a completely different league compared to the rest. Emanne surely is one among the frontrunners this season, and the youngest compared to others too.
WOW, our jaws are on the FLOOR! Emanne Beasha and her lucky stuffed animals were READY for this magical number.
The wait is over: 10-year-old opera singer Emanne Beasha is back! The talented phenom took the “America’s Got Talent” stage during the Semifinals 2 performance show and surprised the judges with her unlikely song choice: Bryan Adams‘ “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You.” For weeks the Amman, Jordan native has been a favorite to win NBC’s reality TV show, and tonight’s angelic performance proved why. Do you think Emanne can go on to join the exclusive “AGT” winners list? Watch the live video above, read the judges’ comments below and then make your predictions before Wednesday’s results show.
Julianne Hough: “I hope that I can articulate the profound thing that just happened. You took those lyrics that I remember in English, which is ‘everything I do, I do for you’ and you shifted that meaning of what we do for each other and for the world and you took such grace and beauty and just offered yourself. It was profound. I’m having a moment. I’m figuring out my words. It was profound. It was beautiful. That’s my internal dialogue. I don’t know if it translated.”
Simon Cowell: “Yeah, I agree. Emanne, look, I’ll tell you what I love about you. You are 10 years old. You’re about one foot tall. But when you come out, I’m gonna be honest with you, I get nervous because it’s the Semifinals [but] for you to do what you just did, and the week before, you have this unbelievable powerhouse voice. You don’t even know how good you are, which makes it so amazing. And I loved the production of the song you did. I have no idea what Julianne meant, but you are absolutely brilliant.”
