Tuesday’s episode of”America’s Got Talent” kicked off the first quarter final round, broadcasting live from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre. That means anything can happen.

Only seven of those 12 acts will advance to September’s semifinals, adding more tension for the remaining contestants to wow America. And your competition is rigid.  Tuesday’s field contained three Golden Buzzer winners — Kodi Lee, Sophie Pecora and Luke Islam — and wildcard Ansley burns off, who came back after her tearful removal from the Judge Cuts.

Simon Cowell revealed that Paul Simon particularly okay’d Lee to perform the song”because he saw that your audition,” which has more than 42 million YouTube viewpoints.

“I would like to thank Paul Simon, who not really gives permission for anyone to sing (‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’) since it’s very precious to himpersonally, and he also contributed (Lee) clearance over 30 minutes,” Cowell said.

Lee’s operation brought tears to Union along with Julianne Hough’s eyes and prompted the crowd to chant”Kodi! Kodi!” One of applause.

“Who you are, what you mean and what you carry on to complete makes the world become so much of a beautiful location,” Union said to her Golden Buzzer act.

Impressionist Greg Morton also increased the pub together with his abysmal voice impressions of films”The Lion King,””Shrek,””Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,””Braveheart” and”Guardians of the Galaxy.”

“I had an issue, coming to the Dolby, if you would have the stage or maybe perhaps not, and also you truly proved me totally incorrect,” Cowell said. “This is such a step up from you past pun”

Other actions that performed Tuesday included blacklight Expert Alex Dowis; danger act Bir Khalsa; singer Carmen Carter; the Emerald Belles drill dance team; girl-group g force; the acrobatic Messoudi Brothers; and the Voices of Service quartet.

Fans may vote up to 10 times for each act on NBC.com/ / AGTvote or through the”America’s Got Talent” program. The actions advancing to the semifinals will be shown throughout Wednesday’s results showthat will consist of guest performances by”AGT” winners Shin Lim along with Bianca Ryan. (NBC, 8 EDT/PDT)
