America’s Got Talent Season 17 Story
There were eleven acts left in the sixteenth episode, five of which advanced to the next round. Michael Winslow, World Taekwondo Demonstration Team, and Jimmie Herrod were the bottom three acts. The disappointment was palpable in both the audience and the judges’ panel, as two of these acts had previously received the Golden Buzzer. Gina Brillon, Beyond Belief Dance Company, and Tory Vagasy competed in the first round of selection.
America rallied behind Gina, the comedian who received a standing ovation for her hilarious performance. It was followed by a performance by Preacher Lawson (a finalist on the show’s 12th season), who had the audience in fits of laughter. The next round of elimination began shortly after. Aidan Bryant, a teen aerialist, received more votes than Korean Soul and Madilyn Bailey, who were eliminated.
Dustin Tavella and Peter Rosalita faced off in the following round. Dustin prevailed due to his exceptional storytelling abilities and natural ability to captivate an audience. Jimmie Herrod, the only singer who survived elimination that night, won the Instant Save. The judges made the final decision of the evening, between Michael Winslow and the World Taekwondo Demonstration Team. They ultimately chose the latter, sending the comedian home.
