Bottom 5:


  • The Season 13 Finals features the lowest number of Golden Buzzer acts, with only three participating.  It would be matched in Season 15.
  • Season 13 is the first season since the format was adjusted in Season 10 not to feature any Golden Buzzer acts picked by guest judges in the Finals.
  • Daniel Emmet became the farthest progressing Wild Card in the live shows since the format change in Season 10. This is also the first finals since Season 9 (Top 12) to contain a Wild Card act.
  • This is the second time that the 10 Finalists got 39 out of 40 possible Standing Ovations from the judges, the first was season 11's, Howie did not give a Standing Ovation to Daniel Emmet.
    • That record has since been broken by Episode 1421, when 40 out of 40 possible standing ovations were recorded.
  • This is the second time a magician has won, the first being Mat Franco in Season 9.
  • This is the first time a non-Golden Buzzer act has won since the Golden Buzzer fomat was adjusted in season 10.
  • Four members of the top 5 all performed in Semifinal 1. Shin Lim, Zurcaroh and Michael Ketterer were the top 3 acts of the night, while Samuel J. Comroe advanced via the Dunkin' Save.
  • Both of the final 2 had their auditions air in the Season 13 premiere.
  • Samuel J. Comroe is the second highest-placing Dunkin' Save winner in the history of the show.
  • The Season 13 final 4 was entirely made up of "non-singing" acts. This was the third time in the show's history this has happened (season 10 also had all non singing top 4 and all six of season 7's finalists were non singing acts)
