America’s Got Talent episode 17 (season 16) will commence the second night of the semifinals. Season 16 of America’s Got Talent kicked off the first night of the semifinals on August 31, 2021. The semifinals got off to a great start, with all the ten semifinalists bringing the top game to the table. Premiering on June 1, 2021, on NBC, this season saw the return of Simon Cowell on the judging panel. This season has also made some changes from the previous installments. Cowell decided to replace the second round Judge Cuts format with the deliberation format this season. The new format entails the judges conferring together at another site and deciding which contestant moves on forward. This season also marks the first time a group Golden Buzzer was given. This came after both the judges and the host had spent their Golden Buzzers and wanted to give an additional one.

Making their way through and acing the quarterfinals, the contestants that made it to the first night of the semifinals were: Peter Rosalita, Michael Winslow, Beyond Belief Dance Company, Aidan Bryant, Tory Vagasy, World Taekwondo Demo Team, Madilyn Bailey, Dustin Tavella, Korean Soul, Gina Brillon, and Jimmie Herrod.

As the AGT season 16 finale inches closer, the excitement to vote their favorite for the finals is at its peak. The results of semifinal 1 will be out on September 1, 2021.

Vagasy, Bailey, and Korean Soul Played Safe While Jimmie Shone Again

The judges and the audience all seemed to enjoy his performance. Tory Vagasy was the next one on the roster, and she put forward an incredible vocal performance. However, Simon and Howie weren’t all that keen on the performance. Vagasy chose “The Lion King” soundtrack for her performance, which Simon and Howie felt was a rather safe choice. Taekwondo Demo Team followed the musical performance with their exhilaration display of martial arts.

Next up was Madilyn Bailey, who also played safe, according to Howie. However, the other judges disagreed and quite like the performance. Next up was the magician Dustin, who gave a personal and narratively brilliant performance. Korean Soul didn’t manage to impress Simon and Howie with their acapella, while Gina Brillon slew with her comedy bit. Jimmie Herrod concluded the semifinals night with a stellar performance, impressing the judges and the audience alike. 1aChord, Brooke Simpson, ChapKidz, Josh Blue, Kabir Singh, Lea Kyle, Northwell Nurse Choir, Peter Antoniou, Rialcris, Victory Brinker, and UniCircle Flow will be performing at the second Semifinals night on September 7, 2021.
