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 at the time the farthest progressing Wild Card in the live shows since the format change in Season 10. This was also the first finals since Season 9 (Top 12) to contain a Wild Card act. He would be followed by Broken Roots where they went from being eliminated in the Judge Cuts to 2nd place they returned for the quarterfinals to replace Thomas Day.
  • 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. It would happen again in Season 16.
  • 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)
