In the third round of the semi-finals of America’s Got Talent, Team Acrodunk, Caitlyn Taylor Love, Sonia Lee, Elliott Zimet, Ten13Concept, Rappin’ Granny, Nathan Burton, Bianca Ryan, Kenny Shelton, and Trey Knight’s Stilt World all perform. In somewhat of a surprise pick, the judges select Rappin’ Granny as their choice to advance to the finals.
On the America’s vote results show, Rappin’ Granny reveals that she is a breast cancer survivor, and if she wins the competition she plans to give some of the money to breast cancer and to also start her own record label.
In a surprise announcement, Piers Morgan reveals that there will be a Wild Card show. The top four vote getters from the public vote as well as two choices from each of the judges will perform on the Wild Card show. Just like with the semi-finals, the judges will select one act to advance and viewers will select one act to advance.
In the viewers vote for the third round of the semi-finals, the top two acts are magician Nathan Burton and eleven year old singer Bianca Ryan. Regis Philbin announces that the winner of the viewers vote is Bianca Ryan.
