“America’s Got Talent” brought real star power to this week’s live semifinals results show. The beloved supergroup BTS brought their effortless charisma to the episode for a fun, wild performance of “Dynamite”
In between host Terry Crews revealing which hopefuls were moving on the finals or getting the axe, the megahit K-pop band brought an electric energy to the proceedings.
The epic number — shot and performed outdoors instead of in the theatre, due to coronavirus precautions — saw BTS deliver a flawless rendition of their hit tune, and showed exactly why “Dynamite” became their first song to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
Needless to say, fans had a lot of love for the number and took to Twitter to celebrate another BTS triumph.

As for the “AGT” results, out of the 11 acts that performed during the second night of the semifinals round on Tuesday, only five were able to move on to next week’s Season 15 finals.
The three acts in jeopardy — and thus eligible for the Dunkin’ Save and Judges’ Save — included country singer Kenadi Dodds, magician Max Major and salsa dancing duo BAD Salsa. Viewers then got a chance to vote during the episode for who should have a shot in the finals.
Before those results were announced, Crews revealed the three acts who would be chasing their “AGT” dream into the next round.
This select group included the inspiring, powerhouse vocalist Cristina Rae, the acrobatic dance trio The Bello Sisters, and 14-year-old songstress Daneliya Tuleshova — who was brought to tears of joy by the results.
Sadly, this meant saying goodbye to five wonderful acts who had given it their best shot but came up just a little short. The contents who got sent packing included two former Golden Buzzer winners — New York City-based dance group W.A.F.F.L.E Crew and the inspirational Voices of Our City Choir — as well as singer Celina Graves, daredevil Jonathan Goodwin and sword swallower Brett Loudermilk.
As for the Dunkin Save, America voted to keep teen singer Kenadi Dodds in the competition, and after the judges’ voted, BAD Salsa earned the Judges’ Save, and Max Major’s AGT journey came to an end.
All the acts who are still standing will face off for one last night of epic performances when the “America’s Got Talent” finals kick off Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
