The auditions are over for Season 10 of America's Got Talent. Now, all the acts must perform again - and the judges pick who makes it to Radio City Music Hall, and who goes home!
For the next four weeks, the judges will be picking the acts that will make it to Radio City Music Hall. Each week 20 acts will perform. Out of those 20, the judges will pick 7 performances to go on - the rest... well, they'll have to pack up their bags and head home.
Last night (Tuesday) was the first night of the 'Judge Cuts.' Along with the four regular judges, there is also a guest judge each week. This week Neil Patrick Harris had that honor.
All 20 acts performed last night - and for the most part, did amazingly well. There were only two acts that completely bombed - and (maybe) two others that just did 'okay.' So, obviously it was a tough decision for the judges to narrow down to 7.
Here are the performances that are the first group to make it to Radio City Music Hall.

These guys kicked off the 'Judge Cuts' round, and they didn't disappoint. Not only was the dancing beautiful, but the story that went along with it was pretty neat - good and evil, temptation, all that. If that doesn't make sense, you'll have to check out the video.

What an amazing performance! First of all, she's 60-years-old! Second, she shoots a crossbow at herself... Herself!?! It was heart-pounding, amazing, and she definitely deserved to make it to Radio City Music Hall.

I'm not going to lie, I think the judges messed up this one. Don't get me wrong - these guys did a good job, but I didn't think it was great. Some of the moves were a little sloppy (especially when they lift up one of the girls), and it wasn't good enough to go on (I thought). But the judges thought it was. What do you think? Should they have gone on, or did they take the spot of someone else who should have made it to the next round?
I think Myq did an excellent job. He had me cracking up during his whole set. But the best part? What makes me think he could really be a star? The way he had everyone laughing, before he even started his bit... How he would just talk back and forth with the judges. To me, that's the sign of a true performer - a true comedian.

I like these guys a lot - they sound good, and they look like they're having a lot of fun while they're performing. The only problem I had with this audition was their song choice. They picked a 21 Pilots song - and it's not a really well-known song. I thought they performed it amazingly well, but it's hard to connect with the audience, if people don't know the song (especially this early in the competition). But their talent shined through, and they made it to the next round of America's Got Talent!
After Samantha performed, it was no surprise the judges were going to send her to the next round. I give her major credit on song choice though, with Sam Smith's 'Lay Me Down.'
Piff the Magic DragonMagician/Comedian
This guy performed so well, Neil Patrick Harris hit the golden buzzer and sent him to Radio City Music Hall - no judge deliberation necessary! That was a no-brainer though. Piff is hilarious, his tricks are awesome, and he's just a great character. He deserves to go far in this competition.
