The final 12 acts faced off Aug. 28, but only three will make it through after tomorrow night’s episode. Vote for your favorites!

It was a night of magic, music and mayhem on the Aug. 28 episode of America’s Got Talent, as Nick Cannon presented the final 12 acts for America — and the show’s illustrious panel — to judge.

And while everyone did a great job, it seems as though William Close has a leg up on the competition. Howie Mandel, speaking for his fellow judges, proclaimed that William is their absolute favorite. Sharon Osbourne also urged America to vote for William. And Howard Stern officially labeled William the competition’s “frontrunner.”

Here’s a quick rundown of the 12 remaining acts (if there’s a *** next to an act, that means it’s one of my personal choices):

Andrew De Leon, opera singer

Todd Oliver, dog ventriloquist

Donovan & Rebecca, gymnasts

Edon, singer

The Scott Brothers, dancers

Eric Dittelman, magician

Turf, contortionist/dancer ***

Bria Kelly, singer

Joe Castillo, sand artist ***

William Close, (giant) harpist ***

Tom Cotter, comedian

Academy of Villains, dance crew

Vote below for the three acts YOU think should make it to next week’s semi-finals!

In all honesty I hope someone wins who is original other than a singer, as far as I’m concerned I hope they are eliminated.

I honestly think William Close has won Americas Got Talent. He’s awesome and I think it’s going to be hard for anyone to beat him. The earth harp’s an amazing instrument and with each audition William Close continues to dominate. I love watching Americas Got Talent and I hate the fact I work when the shows on which’s why I have the Hopper which automatically records all my PrimeTime Anytime shows. Now I can take things a step above by using the Auto Hop feature to skip commercials. What I hate is when I feel like I watch commercials more than I do my favorite shows. One of my coworkers at Dish showed me how Auto Hop worked. It will always ask if you want to skip or not before each recording. This will give my remote a break and save money on batteries.
