These are the champions ... and, as you saw in last week's season 2 premiere of America's Got Talent: The Champions, a handful of favorites that either won or came close to winning America's Got Talent. The contestants who nonetheless need to carry out are shocked.

Along with Boogie Storm, BGT finalist Marc Spelmann aka X, Marcelito Pomoy, and Ryan Niemiller advanced to the finals. This didn't sit well with the music mogul as he reached across the desk and slammed the buzzer, sending a shocked Boogie Storm into the finals.

The first performer of the night was Marcelito Pomoy. Pomoy did not receive a single piece of criticism for his performance, and was instead complimented with superlatives like "brilliant". He performed an impressive trick that involved asking each of the judges to pick a day from their past, and then tying the numerical date of those days into the serial number of a dollar bill he had onstage. Simon Cowell gives him a 10 out of 10.

In fact, if there's one factor we've discovered from watching the previous 13 seasons of this present, it's that the deserving act isn't essentially the one which finally ends up taking residence the grand prize.

Ben Blaque and Collabro were acts who previously competed on Britain's Got Talent, but both struggled to get their footing. "It was absolutely brilliant", said judge Alesha Dixon.

The Detroit Youth Choir, which earned Terry Crews' Golden Buzzer by way of the primary spherical of auditions, has breezed by way of the opponents with extremely efficient performances of songs like Carrie Underwood's "The Champion" and Panic! Puddles Pity Celebration performs Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is". Some of the puppies in the slideshow were owned by the judges, and they were visibly amused by the detail. He pulls off the last word shock when AGT and AGT: The Champions victor Shin Lim exhibits up! Sadly, that meant it was the end of the road for Spencer Horsman, who risked his life to perform a unsafe escape trick from a water tank suspended high above the audience, and Luke Islam, who did Celine Dion proud with a lovely performance of "Ashes" from the Deadpool 2 soundtrack.

Spencer Horsman is the ultimate efficiency of the evening. He's obtained 2 minutes to free himself, however there's a catch. It was hard for both the audience and the judges to determine what was most shocking about Cowell's act of superiority-that he completely ignored the rules of his own show, or that he did it for a group that likely would not have been voted through otherwise.

None of Cowell's fellow judges understood his freakish excitement over the dance group, which put on a Star Wars-themed performance this time around, making his theft of the buzzer all the more inconceivable. The judges ultimately went with Niemiller, meaning that Horsman and Isman were eliminated.
