And then there were two... who we believe should win America's Got Talent this summer.
Yes, AcroArmy is an impressive collection of acrobatic prowess; and, sure singer Miguel Dakota has some pipes.
We've been blown away at times by magician Mat Franco and we do hope the band Sons of Serendip has a bright future in front of it.
But last night's performance finale of America's Got Talent drove home the point, at least in our view: this is a two-person race.
There's Quintavious Johnson, who is somehow only 12 years old.
He reprised his terrific rendition of “I’d Rather Go Blind” on Tuesday evening and later took on “Let It Be” by The Beatles, backed by a choir.
“You are a star… Not only are you hugely talented, you’re a good person,” gushed Howie Mandel, while Howard Stern noted:
"There’s so many performers that are much older than you who could never match your coolness, calmness." He also said Paul McCartney would have been "very pleased" by Johnson's take on The Beatles classic.
Then there's aspiring artist Emily West.
She reprised her amazing rendition of “Chandelier,” and then closed the episode with “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack.
"She has charisma and original style and she can sing her butt off,” Stern said. “This is a spectacular artist that we have on our stage."
Referencing a few of of West’s personal and professional struggles, Heidi Klum told her afterward: “I’m so happy that America finally got to hear your voice.
Both West and Johnson received two standing ovations during the night. But only one can win America's Got Talent. Who should it be?
