*Simon and Mel originally buzzed Yumbo Dump, but later retracted their buzzers.

Trivia

  • This is the first time during the Live Shows that a judge retracted their buzz.
  • AGT cut to a commercial break directly following The Sacred Riana's performance, before the judges commented. This caused a huge controversy on social media. It was later confirmed that the commercial was intentional by a leaked production document. [1]
