AceShowbiz - More acts hit the stage of "America's Got Talent", bringing their A-game during the next round of season qualifiers. The Tuesday, August 16 episode of the talent competition show featured 11 acts performing in front of the judges, but only two of them would move forward to the Finals.

Kicking off the episode with a rousing performance was The Pack Drumline from Chicago. The group wowed both the judges and the audience, who erupted in cheers after the performance. "This is the way to open the show!" Sofia Vergara gushed. Simon Cowell added, "That's how you win the show."

The Brown Brothers then hit the stage as they got creative with their performance full of impressions that include Mickey Mouse, Venom, Goofy, Elmo, Gollum, Donkey, Blake Shelton, Bon Jovi, Bee Gees and even Simon. Howie Mandel was impressed, saying that it felt like a "finale" performance.

Later, Fusion Japan offered a stunning theatrical performance. Following the performance, Simon raved, "I am already blown away by the talent we are seeing this year." He also said that this performance was "better" than Fusion Japan's audition. As for Howie, he simply called the group's performance a "winning performance."

Following it up was Freckled Zelda, who entertained everyone with a throwback song. She showed off her beautiful voice by singing "The Neverending Story" theme song. Simon, however, noted that he preferred her audition, adding that Freckled Zelda got "lost in the production."

In order to get a spot in the Finals, Duo Rings took their latest performance to the next level. The aerial duo got up close and personal with the judges in the final act of their routine. "It was hot, it was dangerous, it was everything!" Heidi Klum said. Simon agreed as he said that Duo Rings were one of the best two acts of the night so far.

Also offering impressive performances that night were Wyn Starks, who sang "In the Stars" by Benson Boone, and Aiko Tanada, who earned praises for her jokes. Howie's Golden Buzzer Maddie also performed that night. She belted out a sensational rendition of "Higher Love", though Simon pointed out that Maddie "went off-key at times."

Illusionist Yu Hojin stunned the judges with his dreamy performance. Heidi called it "elegant." His performance also successfully made Simon change his mind after he gave Yu a no during the auditions. "I am officially an idiot," Simon said.

Rounding out the night was country trio Chapel Hart, who earned the Group Golden Buzzer during the auditions. For tonight performance, they opted to sing another fierce original song "The Girls Are Back in Town".

The results will be revealed in the Wednesday, August 17 episode.
