The second round of semi-finals on ‘America’s Got Talent’ Sept. 3 brought the best performances of the season! Only six move on to the next round. How will we choose?!

We thought we had seen the best performances of America’s Got Talent in weeks past. Boy, were we wrong. The Sept. 3 semi-finals totally wowed us with incredible performances from acrobats, singers, and dancers. This week is going to be the toughest elimination yet. Check out HollywoodLife.com’s top 5 performances from the second and final wave of semi-finalists!

Top 5 Performances Of Sept. 3 Semi-Finals

5. Kristef Brothers

After being unable to compete due to injury in last week’s first round of semi-finals, the Kristef Brothers are back and better than ever. Their performance was a test of strength yet wildly entertaining. Seriously, these guys could be full-time comedians. They swallowed swords and took us on a thrilling ride of death-defying strength. The judges were glad to see the Brothers back on stage and Mel B said they were “sorely missed.” Howie Mandel called them “amazing” and Howard Stern can’t get enough of this act. Neither can we, Howard.

4. D’Angelo & Amanda

D’Angelo & Amanda had a lot to prove after his sister Ruby was eliminated just a few weeks ago. Did the right sibling stay? YES! D’Angelo and his partner kicked off the night in the best way possible. They were sharp and all kinds of fierce to Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.” Howard and Howie fought over whether they stepped it up and we agree with Howard, they most certainly did! When they moved and started dancing in the water and still managed to have great technique, that’s when they really wowed us.

3. Anna Christine

At just 11 years old, Anna Christine is a serious singing powerhouse in this competition. She wanted to show the judges that she can handle the pressure and boy did she show them. Her rendition of Jon Bon Jovi’s “Wild Horses” was terrific, goose bump-inducing and just plain flawless. Heidi Klum called her a “superstar” and rightfully so. Mel B thought it was “bloody fantastic” and that the other singers should be “scurred.” Howard even said he would call up Bon Jovi to sing a duet with her in the finals. Talk about awesome! We think Anna Christine could hold her own with Bon Jovi.

2. Kenichi Ebina

The award for the most creative guy on the planet goes to Kenichi Ebina! This guy thinks of it all. His performance is nothing short of visually stunning. The lengths he goes to with his precision in his act is just spectacular. Between his dancing and interacting with is virtual self, he is just plain amazing. He somehow tops his performances each and every week. Howie is Kenichi’s number one fan and even said he was “the biggest talent in the world.” That’s one bold statement, Howie. Heidi said he was a “genius” and Mel B already wants to see this show in Las Vegas.

1. Chicago Boyz

The Chicago Boyz are without a doubt the most entertaining act on America’s Got Talent. They’ve persevered against injury and managed to come back and steal the show. Again. In a fun and crazy routine to Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” the boys do what they do best: wow us. They managed to have a three person shoulder sit and have another teammate tumble OVER them. WHOA. Our jaws are still on the floor after this performance. They continue to up their game and defy all odds. Howard told the Boyz they were “phenomenal athletes” and that “we’re lucky to have them on America’s Got Talent.” We don’t know what this season would be like without them!

So HollywoodLifers, which act was your favorite of the night? Who do you think will move on to the top 12? Let us know!
