America’s Got Talent just finished airing, and three acts have been sent to the finals.

As was to be expected, last night’s America’s Got Talent semifinal was filled with many acts that deserved to get sent onto the finals, but only three acts could. They first revealed the top four acts. Those acts were Joe Castillo, William Close, Todd Oliver, and Tom Cotter. William Close and Tom Cotter advanced automatically, and the judges decided that Todd Oliver would be going home.
