It was time to find out the fate of 12 acts that performed Tuesday night for a chance at competing in the finals for "America's Got Talent."
But before revealing the three performers that will move forward with the competition, judges Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Howard Stern were joined by a guest who had something to say about the show so far--Steve Harvey.
"I gotta tell you, some of the greatest acts I've ever seen have been on the show," he said, and went on to give his two cents on the different acts that showed their stuff last night.
"A lot of people see this and think it's sexy," Harvey said of Donaldson and Rebecca. "Me and my wife tried it right after the show. Had to go take a nap. That was it. I dropped her twice. Pretty much shot it."
Afterward, host Nick Cannon made sure keep the audience at the edge of their seat when it came to announcing the three finalists, by first announcing the top four.
Sand artist Joe Castillo, harpist William Close, ventriloquist Todd Oliver and his dog and comedian Tom Cotter all made the cut, but one of them was about to get the boot (so close!).
It came down to choosing between Oliver and Castillo, so who did the judges decide should join Close and Cotter in the finals?
Congratulations, Joe Castillo!
