Academy of Villains, Bria Kelly, The Magic of Puck as well as Clint Carvalho and His Extreme Parrots are the acts who nab the spots in semifinals on the August 15 result show.
After bringing out twelve acts during YouTube Snapple Special on Tuesday, August 14, "America's Got Talent" has revealed their fates. Academy of Villains, who got a standing ovation from Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel on the performance show, was the first one announced advancing to the semifinals on Wednesday night.
Bria Kelly and The Magic of Puck followed Academy of Villains' path after they were each called on stage with two other acts. When there were three acts left, Romeo Dance Cheetah was sent home, leaving it between Clint & His Extreme Parrots and Drew Erwin who still competed for a spot in the semifinals. The judges then made the decision, with Sharon, Howie and Howard Stern all voting for Clint & His Extreme Parrots.
During the August 15 result show, "AGT" welcomed special guest Gabby Douglas. The artistic gymnast, who brought home gold medals from the London Olympics, help Nick Cannon host the show, introducing acts and clip segments. Duo Karmin were also billed to perform that night, while YouTube comedian Randall "the Honeybadger Whisperer" made the audience laugh with his quips.
The recently-announced four semifinalists join 16 other acts who have earlier advanced to the next level. Next week, twelve eliminated contestants who are picked by the judges will perform on Wild Card show in a bid to secure the remaining spots in the semifinals.
