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!
