The ‘AGT’ semi-finals have arrived, the competition is heating up. Some of our favorite acts are performing for a potential spot in the finals. Read our recap of the Sept. 4 episode now!
America’s Got Talent season 13 is just a few episodes away from crowning a winner! Can you believe it? The semi-finals kick off with teen singer Amanda Mena. She sings a soulful, R&B-inspired rendition of Pharrell’s “Happy.” It’s always tough to be the first contestant to perform, but the 16-year-old handles the pressure with ease. Heidi Klum says the performance is her “best” yet, and Simon Cowell notes that Amanda has “more confidence” than ever before.
Junior New System is up next. They’re back with some fierce red heels, and they’re ready to take on the semi-finals. They slay with amazing stunts and synchronization. About halfway through, they throw off their heels and continue SLAYING. All four judges give the group a standing ovation. “That’s what we call a semi-finals performance,” Simon declares. Mel B screams that it’s Junior New System’s “best performance ever!”
