'America's Got Talent': Orlando's Preacher Lawson advances


Seven acts have advanced to the next round of America's Got Talent after the first night of live shows this season!

AGT has another live show Wednesday (NBC, 8 ET/PT), where it will announce which seven of the 12 acts that performed Tuesday will continue in the competition.

Tonight, only 7 acts will make it through and we will be updating this post live with the results.

With nine acts left on stage awaiting their own fate, Tyra asked Artyon and Paige and In the Stairwell to step forward. But the first set of results to be revealed were the sixth, seventh and eighty place vote-getters who would be eligible for the Dunkin' Save, a live vote to take place during the rest of the show, with the most popular earning a sixth spot in the next round.

From there, I think Preacher Lawson will get voted through.

Grace VanderWaal, last season's victor, returned to sing in her distinctive style. Then, one more act will be voted through via real-time voting this evening, followed by a judges' pick.

Host Tyra Banks revealed the acts that came last in the public vote. This meant that Bello Nock was going home. Be sure to vote in Real-Time to save your favorite of the bottom three.

The judges tied over whether to send singer Yoli Mayor or the dance troupe Just Jerk through.

The other competitors who advanced tonight are singers Yoli Mayor and Christian Guardino, a cappella group In the Stairwell, extreme rollerskating duo Billy & Emily England and comedian Preacher Lawson. The result went back to the public vote as Yoli got the most votes last night to advance.

Mandy Harvey, a deaf singer from St. Cloud, will perform next week. If not, let us know in the comments who you think should have been saved.
