We’re getting closer and closer to the semi-finals of ‘America’s Got Talent,’ and the Aug. 13 performances proved that the competition isn’t waning whatsoever.

Okay, we’ll admit it — we had no idea that there were still so many incredible acts left vying for spots in the semi-finals on America’s Got Talent. The Aug. 13 live episode featured unicycles, life-threatening situations, and one epic rendition of a classic song. Check out’s top five performances from this week’s round of talents.

Top 5 Performances Of Aug. 13

5. Taylor Williamson

You know it’s going to be a great act when the first thing you hear is a Spice Girls song. This comedian did just that to set the mood for a truly hilarious act. Taylor is sarcastic, hysterical, and awkwardly awesome. Some of his jokes are borderline offensive but we love it that way. Unlike some of the other comedians, Taylor doesn’t have to try hard to be funny. He just is.

4. Chloe Channell

There is no country singer in all the land who has more spunk than Chloe. This 11-year-old sassy tomboy took on The Band Perry’s “Done.” and proved that age is just a number. This girl has a stage presence and voice of a seasoned pro. Howard Stern called her performance “sweet and sassy” and Mel B loved her but wanted less theatrics. Chloe was great and just needs to realize that she makes a huge impact just being her. Amidst all the other country singers, Chloe is one to watch out for.

3. Aerial Ice

These ice skating aerialists are just amazing. They manage to combine skating and acrobatics into one graceful and eye-catching performance. The partner work is truly stunning.  The judges loved their performance, but who doesn’t? Howard called them “so wonderful” and Heidi Klum thought it was “awesome.” While we still have a few months until the 2014 Winter Olympics, this awesome act is enough to tide us over until then.

2. Timber Brown

Timber is good. Like seriously, crazy good. During his entire performance, you simply could not take your eyes off him. He totally owned the audience as he spun and performed acrobatic tricks from a suspended round cage. Did we mention he has no safety net? Howie Mandel proclaimed that Timber was the “first act to take it to the next level” and Heidi went so far as to say “you deserve your own act in Las Vegas.” Those are some pretty bold declarations, but we can’t say we don’t agree with them. Timber is just that incredible.

1. Cami Bradley

There are not enough words to describe how fantastic this girl was. Seriously, it takes one brave soul to take on Cher. The singer sang Cher’s number one hit “Believe” and completely blew us away. With just a piano and her incredible voice, Cami stole the show and perhaps the competition. The judges praised her song choice and Howard told her, “You took a song that we all know and made it new,” while Heidi called the performance “beautiful.” Cami has so much star power and we can’t wait to see her breeze into the semi-finals so we can hear her sing again.

So HollywoodLifers, what did YOU think of tonight’s performances? Who was your favorite? Let us know!
