Recommended Posts

This is it. One chance. One last chance. To make a dream come true. One million dollars. America's winner is up to you. Welcome to the America's Got Talent Finale!

Please welcome your host, Terry Crews! These 10 acts come from around America and around the World and they one last performance away from winning $1,000,000 and a headline show in Las Vegas. Please welcome Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Sofia Vergara, your AGT Judges!

First up is Sofia's Golden Buzzer, 11 yr old Roberta Battaglia. Singing Scars To Your Beatiful (Alessia Cara), she is physically swallowed by the stage but her vocal fills the space with clear confidence, her voice full of attitude & poise, a seasoned performer.

Sofia says you surprised me the first time on stage, and you keep surprising me every time more and more. Heidi says you were born to sing, this is only the beginning, absolutely incredible. Howie says we've watched you blossom for the world to see, the one to beat tonight.

The next act has come all the way from India to perform live on the AGT stage, it's BAD Salsa. Dancing for themselves and for all of India, they are just as amazing in person as they were remote, amazing choreography, acrobatics, speed and color. It's non-stop until the confetti falls.

Heidi says you have changed the game, so much creativity to this kind of dance, so amazing to see you live. Howie says you're the best dancers this season, you are so dynamic in person. Sofia says breathtaking, you took it to another level, one of my favorite acts in my life.

The next finalist is a small town girl from Utah, 15yr old Kenadi Dodds, taking us on an emotional journey. Singing Love Wins (Carrie Underwood) and playing a guitar, she lights up the stage, her impassioned vocal and joyful voice delivering hope in a world of uncertainty.

Sofia says here you are standing and singing with your guitar, so much more energetic, you stepped it up. Heidi says you have a super bright future, a country music award, a young Taylor Swift. Howie says you really rose to the occasion without the piano or guitar, you're worth it.

Next up is Howie's Golden Buzzer, lyrical wordsmith Brandon Leake. Finishing his run of personal messages with a poem for his daughter, his love, his worries, how she changed his life and gave it meaning, gave him reason to reach higher, hope for the future, her future.

Howie says Brandon leaves him speechless, he moves people, takes us on a journey, more important now then ever. Sofia says I have loved this new experience, so meaningful, very hopeful. Heidi says a beautiful gift to your daughter, you speak the truth and that it power.

Turning a second chance into a Finale performance, here's Broken Roots. Singing In The Air Tonight (Phil Collins) on the back of a flat bed truck, their country take on this percussive classic is full of harmonies and counter harmonies, dramatic vocals and voices on fire.

Sofia says what an amazing ride, the song and performance, I like you more every time. Heidi says you had to fight harder to get here and you showed us wrong. Howie says that was wonderful, the singers have the hardest job because there are so many and may cancel each other out.

We head over to Germany for the Bello Sisters, strength, balance & poise in leather miniskirts. They struggle with the form, but regroup with an amazing performance and unique moves. Their father makes an appearance, shooting a rose out of the mouth of one of the sisters.

Heidi says you are incredible, true athletes, beautiful to watch. Howie says they are beautiful and wonderful but this was of the slowest performances and a little shaky. Sofia was it was amazing, stunning, perfection, three strong women deserve a place. There was no shaking.

Next up is Archie Williams, proof that the human spirit cannot be crushed. Singing Blackbird (The Beatles), accompanied on the piano, his sandpaper vocal communicates the feeling and the warble in his voice the depth of honesty that comes from his performance. Simple yet powerful.

Howie says only one act can win but you're already a winner, your songs have meanings so clear and more powerful. Sofia says you made it your song, your best performance and best suit. Heidi says I heard this song differently, like the song was written for you, you're soaring.

Next to perform is 14yr old Daneliya Tuleshova who is electrified when she performs. Singing Alive (Sia) in a lush rain forest backdrop, her voice starts out in a lower octave not her strongest, but her voice shines as she transitions into the chorus, dynamic and powerful.

Sofia says she is amazing, the kids have been so good this season, you especially, flawless, comfortable, better & better. Heidi says you are a class act, hold your own, perfection. Howie says you seem the most seasoned even though you're still a baby.

Next we go outside for aerialist Alan Silva, who has lived life proving size doesn't matter. Descending from a rainy sky, he puts on a dazzling display of artistry, physical feats, a soaring symphony of danger, imagery, adventure, passion and thrills in an amazing performance.

Heidi says you have been underestimated and bullied and I hope those people can see you now. Sofia says you are so artistic, the water, the fire, it looks so dangerous and exciting. Howie said that seemed to be the most dangerous performance because you were so wet, best yet.

The last act in the Finale is Heidi's Golden Buzzer, Cristina Rae. Singing Demons (Imagine Dragons), her elegant vocal mesmerized the night sky in her outdoor stage, her voice inevitably building to a powerful crescendo and then falsetto, the performance sensual and satisfying.

Heidi says you saved the best for last, you are the most amazing, a light that cannot be dimmed, you sparkle & shine. Sofia says every week more and more a star, you look amazing, those notes, perfection. Howie says this is your kingdom and you the Queen to beat.

That's your Top 10 Finale performances. Now it is up to you, America. Who will be the Season 15 winner of America's Got Talent?
