Two of AGT’s biggest success stories returned to showcase how the show changed their lives.

First, ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer’s life was significantly changed when former judge Mel B pressed the Golden Buzzer during America’s Got Talent (AGT): Season 12’s Judges’ Auditions. Thanks to her friends, Petunia, Oscar, and Edna, the nation fell in love with her talent and voted her to win the NBC talent competition’s twelfth season. Following her victory, Darci Lynne toured the country on her tour: Darci Lynne and Friends Live and returned to compete on  America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ inaugural season. Tonight, she returned to AGT to provide the entertainment for the second results show of the season.

Secondly, Vegas headliners Jabbawockeez were the next alums to be featured. The group was initially featured in the show’s sophomore season. Sadly, then judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and David Hasselhoff eliminated them during the Vegas Rounds. However, the group found success after winning America’s Best Dance Crew and earned a global fanbase.

However, all eyes were on the 11 acts fighting for five spots to go into the Season 15 Semifinals! Which acts advanced to the Season 15 semifinals? Who needed the Dunkin’ Save to advance? Who was eligible for Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and guest judge Kenan Thompson to use the Judges’ Save? Read on to find out!

After recapping the night that included behind the scenes footage and giving a shoutout to Kenan’s daughter, Georgia, it was time to get down to business. Terry revealed that Alexis and the Puppy Pals, Jonathan Goodwin, and Spyros Bros needed the Dunkin’ Save. In all honesty, I voted on who I would love to see in Vegas, and Jonathan Goodwin received my vote.

Bonavega, Voices of Our City Choir, and Kameron Ross were the first acts to receive the news. Voices of Our City Choir advanced to the next round. As much I am thrilled for Voices of Our City Choir, I hope that there is a wild card spot this season because Bonavega was taken out of the competition way too early. 

The Jabbawockeez performed live from the Excalibur Hotel and Casino. The quintet showcased their Michael Jackson-esque choreography in a superb routine. As the dance troupe hung up, Vincent Marcus and Bad Salsa were the next two acts to hear the news. Bad Salsa received the second semifinals spot of the evening. 

Next up, Daneilya Tuleshova edged out Kelvin Dukes and the Shape for a spot in the AGT: Season 15 semifinals. Up next, Darci Lynne returned with a brand new friend: Ivan, from Australia. I love that Ivan flirted with Heidi and Sofia before singing Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” Darci Lynne continues to prove to be her generation’s Shari Lewis. 

As Darci left the stage, Howie took Terry and the ladies across the Universal Studios lot. I loved seeing their reactions with the flash flood scene, Jaws, and Earthquake portions of the Studio Tour. After the segment aired, America chose to give the Dunkin’ Save to the Spyros Bros! That left Alexis and the Puppy Pals and Jonathan Goodwin’s fates in the judges’ hands. 

Guest judge Kenan Thompson kicked off the vote by selecting Alexis and the Puppy Pals and Howie Mandel joined him. Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum elected Jonathan Goodwin to advance to the next round. That meant it came to the audience…and they RIGHTFULLY SELECTED JONATHAN GOODWIN!!!! (YAY!!!!)

Next week, 11 more acts face off for a chance for a spot in the Season 15 semifinals.
