12 acts performed on America's Got Talent last night during the first segment of the live shows, and only 7 will advance. Here are the top acts that deserve to stay in the competition.

Another exciting episode of America's Got Talent was on last night (Tuesday), filled with comedy, dancing, strength acts, and everything in between. Only seven acts will make it through to the next round - and we won't know who those seven are until tonight during the 'Results Show.' Here are the seven acts that I think deserve to go on (this is just my opinion, I'm sure America voted a few of them differently).

    Siro-A

    Dance/Animation Act

    These guys kicked off the show, and they did it with a bang. The animations combined with the dance... it's just breath-taking. It was really entertaining, and I think they'll go far.

    There is one critique, though. This group needs to be really, REALLY careful with their timing. A few times the timing was just a tiny bit off, but it made the visuals not line up - and takes away from their overall performance.

    Drew Lynch

    Comedian

    I was worried about this one, I'm not going to lie. He did so well with his first audition, got the 'golden buzzer' and went straight to Radio City Music Hall.

    Drew Lynch is known for overcoming the odds - he's a kid comedian, and he has a stutter. In his first set, he pretty much made fun of his disability for his jokes. I wasn't sure if he was going to be able to pull it off again, or if he was going to take a different route. Well, he nailed it - plain and simple. He had me cracking up, and he definitely deserves to continue in this competition.

    Piff the Magic Dragon

    Magician/Comedian

    The judges didn't think Piff was very strong in this round, but I think they're wrong. He did a magic trick that I've seen a million times, but I like the spin he put on it. He made it entertaining to watch, and was funny like always.

    Plus he had this whole 'Game of Thrones' thing going. That made it great on its own!

    Paul Zerdin

    Ventriloquist

    Paul, Paul, Paul... I don't know where to begin. He rocked it! At first I figured it was just the same old, same old - and his jokes aren't hilarious (he's funny, but I wouldn't say THAT funny). But he did something I didn't expect - he walked away and let his puppet tell jokes.

    Sounds weird, I know. You just have to watch it to know what I'm talking about.

    The Gentlemen

    Young Dancers

    Every time this group comes on stage, they always do better than I expect. Not to be mean, but I don't really care for any of the kid acts (don't know why, I just don't really like them). Somehow, these kids are an exception to that rule.

    The judges didn't seem to think so though, they got a lot of criticism. All I can do is cross my fingers and hope they go on - I want to see what else they can do!

    Benton Blount

    Singer

    I want this guy to go on (although I don't think America is going to vote him through - there were two other singers last night that did really good, too).

    This guy has a unique tone, and I love it. He sang A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera's 'Say Something,' and it had SO much feeling. He really did an amazing job, and I hope he goes on.

    Showproject

    Gymnasts

    Another group the judges didn't seem to be happy with. Some said their other performance was better (which I completely disagree with). They were SO entertaining to watch. Plus, they made a simple change to their clothing, and it made like this 'visual effect' thing happen. I don't know how to explain it, it was just amazing. Check it out!
