It’s Week Four of America’s Got Talent: All-Stars (AGT: All-Stars)! 

So far, we have seen underdogs such as the Bello Sisters, Detroit Youth Choir, and Mike E. Winfield take out Got Talent winners (Terry Fator, Jeanick Fournier, Dustin Tavella, and Keren Montero). Meanwhile, acts such as Aidan Bryant and Avery Dixon cemented their statuses as show icons.  

Tonight, a new set of acts performed for the judges (Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell) and the superfans! Which acts soared, impressed the superfans, and advanced to the All-Stars final? Read on to find out!

After Terry Crews entered, he revealed that Heidi had the chance to give out tonight’s Golden Buzzer. Power Duo was the first act to face the judges. The duo won Pilipinas Got Talent: Season Five, married, and started a family. They danced to Calum Scott and Leona Lewis’ “You are the Reason.” I got chills with their aerial routine and loved their choreography. A

Heidi (and I) screamed with joy when her AGT: Season 15 Golden Buzzer act, Cristina Rae, walked out on stage. Since her time on the show, she starred in Little Shop of Horrors and appeared on numerous Broadway stages. Tonight, she sang Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand,” giving me a strong case of goosebumps. I was so proud of Cristina’s performance. 

The Human Fountains SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ON THIS SHOW! They were disgusting, and I wished Barbara Padilla had taken their spot. 

I let out a scream of joy when I saw Emil & Dariel on my screen. They blew me away when they were on AGT: Season Nine, and I was gutted when the duo was eliminated before the finale. Tonight, they tackled “Take on Me,” and once again, they delivered a phenomenal performance. It was epic and put a smile on my face! A

I will also be extraordinarily frank and say: “SHAME ON YOU, SIMON COWELL!” Emil & Dariel are talented musicians; they are not dull. I am highly disappointed with you. You know who was boring, Darius Madba. I have seen similar choreography before, and I would have buzzed! 

Sacred Riana is one of Got Talent’s scariest acts. Tonight, the Asia’s Got Talent: Season Two winner and Season 13 quarterfinalist found herself on the AGT: All-Stars stage. Sacred Riana outdid herself this time. However, I still wished that “Theo” had made an appearance. B

Shin Lim and Piff the Magic Dragon inspired magician Aidan McCann to compete in Britain’s Got Talent: Season 14. While he did not win the show, he could interview celebrities and perform magic worldwide. I will be blunt, I was bored by Aidan’s presentation and would have buzzed him. What a waste of a Golden Buzzer, Heidi! F

68-year-old Robert Finley significantly impacted AGT: Season 14 with his original songs. Unfortunately, he chose the wrong song during the Season 14 semifinals and missed the finale. However, the talent competition changed his life as Robert recorded a new album and toured with top musicians such as Dan Auerbach. Robert knew that he had unfinished business with Got Talent and decided to compete in AGT: All-Stars. He performed “Souled Out On You,” and I was in awe of the upper register. I hope to stream this song in the future. I wished there was a Group Golden Buzzer for Robert! A- 

Belgian dance crew, the Mini Droids, won Belgium’s Got Talent and became sensations in their home country. This was a weak dance crew. After seeing acts such as V.Unbeatable and Light Balance (the adults and kids), I had high expectations for dance acts, and they did not meet them. 

Thank god that Ndlovu Youth Choir came on when they did! This South African choir greatly impacted the show’s fourteenth season! Tonight, the group performed an original song, “Together We Will Rise,” that genuinely moved me, and they truly stole the show! A

The Superfans have voted! Power Duo, Ndlovu Youth Choir, and Darius were the top three. I am not happy that Darius knocked out both Cristina and Emil & Dariel. Darius took home third place, but Power Duo took home the top spot!
