Twelve acts are set to perform and we’ve got the rundown on each of them, along with videos of their previous performances. Tomorrow night, the results episode will air, with only seven acts advancing to the semifinals. So, who are the contestants set to perform this week? Let’s get into the acts below.
Angelina Green is a 13-year-old singer, who earned the golden buzzer from Heidi Klum when she sang “I’ll Stand By You” by The Pretenders. She says that she turned to singing when her parents got divorced because she needed a way to escape and express herself. In an interview with People, Green said that she wants to make Klum proud, explaining:
I really want to make Heidi proud and I want to show her that I deserved to get the Golden Buzzer. I already really want to make my mom and my brother proud.
Green also plays the piano, guitar and ukulele.
Goehring is a Youtube success as a singer and songwriter, who won over the judges with an original song for his first audition on the show. Goehring also plays the ukulele and guitar. Simon Cowell was already familiar with Goehring when he came to AGT, as Goehring previously appeared on season 3 of The X Factor.

Mike Yung is the subway singer, who went viral when a passerby recorded a video of him singing.

Oskar and Gaspar
These two are a videomapping act who use visual arts and multimedia for their act. Previously, they used judge Heidi Klum’s body as a canvas for their performance. There are three men who represent the act, though Oskar and Gaspar do not actually appear.
What’s interesting is that the act was not shown performing in the Judges’ Cuts, but they were able to move on into the quarterfinals.

Carson is a dog trainer from Canada, who travels around with her pup and she has actually appeared on her fair share of television programs.
