This is it, ‘AGT’ fans! The top 10 finalists took the stage for their last performance before America’s vote. Every act brought their A-game with their performances.
Jimmie Herrod, Sofia Vergara’s Golden Buzzer, kicks things off during night one of America’s Got Talent season 16 finale. He sang a perfect rendition of “What a Wonderful World” that had everyone on their feet. Howie Mandel says there are “no words” to describe Jimmie’s voice. Heidi Klum tells Jimmie that he’s her “favorite discovery of the season.” Jimmie’s just set the bar very high.
‘AGT’ Top 10 Perform
Quick change artist Léa Kyle, Heidi’s Golden Buzzer, takes the stage next. She really takes things to the next level after nearly being eliminated. Sofia and Heidi raved that this was Léa’s best performance. Simon Cowell declares that he genuinely thinks Léa is the “best in the world” when it comes to her skill.
Victory Brinker, who made history as the first 5-time buzzer winner, sounded amazing singing her latest opera classic. She looked like a princess in her white gown. “You are an absolute star,” Simon says. Heidi calls Victory “perfection.”
Gina Brillon’s latest stand-up is another hit. This female comedian is a star in the making. Howie brings up the tragic passing of comedian Norm Macdonald and says Gina is evidence that “laughter is still alive and laughter is the best medicine.” Sofia loves that Gina’s material is from a “woman’s point of view” and loves what Gina’s done.
World Taekwondo Demonstration Team elevates their performance to insane heights. Their finale performance is one thrilling action movie. They come out from the audience and put on a spectacular show. Howie declares this is the “best act of the night.” Simon says this group is the one to beat. Sofia wants to produce their movie!
Aerialist Aidan Bryant stuns with his spectacular performance. Simon is so impressed that he gets up on the judges’ table to give Aidan a standing ovation! Simon raves Aidan is “unbelievably talented” and this was one of the “best live performances I’ve ever seen.”
Brooke Simpson brings her A-game with her fierce performance of “White Flag” by Bishop Briggs. She is one heck of a performer. Sofia tells Brooke she is “raising the bar.” Simon thinks Brooke has a real shot at winning the competition after this performance and loves that Brooke gives “every ounce” of her talent every time.
Magician Dustin Tavella tells a story on an epic scale, continuing to mix magic and real life. Simon believes Dustin will be one of the last ones standing in tomorrow night’s finale. Comedian Josh Blue nearly brings Simon to tears with his jokes. The final performance of the night is from Northwell Health Nurse Choir, Howie’s Golden Buzzer. They sing a powerhouse rendition of Rachel Platten’s “Stand By You.” Howie thinks his Golden Buzzer act “probably” will win season 16 and thinks they “deserve” to!
Live updates: The 2021 Emmy Awards
The cast and producers of Apple’s “Ted Lasso” scored a major W during July 13’s Emmy nominations and broke a record in the process.
With its 20 nominations, “Ted Lasso” became the most nominated freshman comedy in Emmy history, besting the 19 nominations “Glee” earned in 2010 for its first season.
The nods earned by “Ted Lasso” included best comedy, best lead actor (Jason Sudeikis) and a number of accolades for the show’s supporting cast.
Hannah Waddingham, Juno Temple, Brendan Hunt, Brett Goldstein, Jeremy Swift and Nick Mohammed all received nominations for their performances. (Yes, there’s a four-way “Ted Lasso” race in outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series.)
“Getting nominated for an acting Emmy is as thrilling as it is surprising,” said Hunt, who also shares two writing nominations with fellow writers Sudeikis, Joe Kelly and Bill Lawrence. “Not only was this kind of thing never something I was planning or pining for, but also I’m not even the “best supporting actor” on my own show. I am appreciative of, and humbled by, this recognition; but far more appreciative that so many of my castmates have received the same. We’re a team, but maybe we’re a team with a deep bench.”
The show also received two nominations for comedy series editing, one for best casting and three for outstanding directing for a comedy series. One of the directing nominations went to actor and director Zach Braff.
“I’m so honored and happy about this,” Braff wrote on Twitter.
“Ted Lasso” returned for its second season on July 23.

Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, 71, Says Ex Stevie Nicks, 73, May Not Be ‘Over’ Him
Fleetwood Mac star Lindsey Buckingham has claimed his ex Stevie Nicks might not be ‘completely over’ him, 45 years after they broke up.
Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, 71, suggested his ex-girlfriend and former bandmate Stevie Nicks, 73, might still have a soft spot for him. The musician previously claimed he was fired from the group after Stevie gave the band an ultimatum when he asked to delay a tour to promote his solo music. Now, he has said his ex of four years might not be “over” him. “There were a number of years where I wasn’t over her. It is possible that she has never been completely over me either,” he told The Times newspaper.
“The way we had to get through Rumours is part of the legacy and heroics of the whole thing,” Lindsey added, referencing their 1976 split amid promotion for their album Rumours. The break up came four years after they got together, but things hit the rocks after the release of what would become one of the best-selling albums of all time.
“We didn’t have time to heal or move on in the traditional sense. I think — and she was the one who moved away from me back then — that we both had to compartmentalize our feelings,” he explained. “That is not a healthy thing to do because those little compartments can remain sealed up for years until things start seeping out when you don’t realize.”
Lindsey continued, “I met the love of my life late and that gave me a whole other take on the world. Stevie did not have children. She went down a different route and has placed more importance on her professional life. How that played out in the last three, four, five years … It’s hard for me to know what her mentality is towards me, but I know what mine is to her because I’ve been married for 21 years and I have three children and it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Stevie recently spoke out about her ex’s depiction of her in the media, emphasizing that she never had him fired. “His version of events is factually inaccurate and while I’ve never spoken publicly on the matter, certainly it feels the time has come to shine a light on the truth. To be exceedingly clear, I did not have him fired, I did not ask for him to be fired, I did not demand he be fired.”
She added, “Frankly, I fired myself. I proactively removed myself from the band and a situation I considered to be toxic to my wellbeing. I was done. If the band went on without me, so be it. And after many lengthy group discussions, Fleetwood Mac, a band whose legacy is rooted in evolution and change, found a new path forward with two hugely talented new members.”
