The night began with a recap of the 11 performances from Tuesday night.

Simon Cowell commented on the new format saying, “In some ways, I love what we’ve done, we put more people through, but nine people are going home tonight. That said, the energy level was incredible last night.”

To kick things off, host Terry Crews called to the stage Amoukanama and Lace Larrabee, saying one act would go home and the other was still in the competition The first act still in the competition was Amoukanama, meaning Lace had to say goodbye to her AGT dreams.

The second two acts called up for their results were Oleksandr Yenivatov and NFL Players Choir. Oleksandr Yenivatov found out he was headed home, but the Players Choir got the good word they were still in the competition.

The third group to get their news were Stefanny and Yeeremy and Terry’s Golden Buzzer Avery Dixon. Stefanny and Yeeremy got the bad news that they were done, but Avery was still in the competition.
