‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ Recap: The acts fight for all the glory

On Monday’s episode of America’s Got Talent: The Champions, the final ten acts took to the stage to prove to the superfans for the last time why they deserve to be crowned the best in the world.

In case you missed it, here’s a recap of all the performances as well as a prediction for who takes it all.

Alexa Lauenburger

The finals kicked off with the pint-sized dog trainer, who won Germany’s Got Talent back in 2017. Her first two performances were solid, so I was excited to see where she would go in her last performance.

Unfortunately, Alexa ended up delivering her worst performance so far. She did not seem to have full command of her dogs and some of the tricks were a tad shaky. Alexa has the best dog act I’ve ever seen, but it may not be enough to win.

Duo Transcend

Representing the USA was America’s Got Talent 2018 finalist Duo Transcend. The husband and wife aerial act delivered their best performance ever as they both were completely blindfolded for the entire act, doing flips and tricks several feet in the air without a safety net. Regardless of whether they win or not, they at least deserve a top-five finish.

Angelina Jordan

The Norway’s Got Talent winner was next up. She was judge Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer choice back in the first round and faced a lot of pressure because of it. She performed a nice rendition of Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and really moved everyone.

I must say, I expected more from Angelina. The performance was nice but her song choice was honestly pretty boring to me. With that said, I wouldn’t rule out a top-five finish for her. She seems to be very popular among the superfans.

Boogie Storm

Okay, I think you guys can probably guess how I feel about this performance but I’ll tell you anyway. The dancing storm troopers know as Boogie Storm from Britain’s Got Talent 2018 were up next. They performed a dance routine to “Taki Taki” and “The Cha Cha Slide” to name a few. Judge Howie Mandel buzzed them, and rightfully so.

These dances are something you’d see your uncle do at a wedding or dances you’d see at a high school prom. It’s not talent and it was honestly a waste of time at this stage in the competition.

The Silhouettes

Next to grace the stage was America’s Got Talent 2011 finalist, The Silhouettes. The shadow dancing act earned judge Alesha Dixon’s Golden Buzzer back in the first round and for their final performance, the group told an emotional story about homelessness and delivered an important message of kindness. It left Heidi and Alesha in tears as the group got a standing ovation from the crowd. The Silhouettes were THE original shadow dance group and to see them win now would be amazing.


The self-proclaimed German sex symbol known as Hans was up next. He was a finalist on America’s Got Talent in 2018 and has said he thinks he can win it. So now, it was his chance to prove it. He performed a fabulous routine to Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud!” and was so hilarious to watch.

Judge Simon Cowell may have buzzed him but Hans is pure joy and entertainment. He is fun to watch. It was so fun to have him back this season for sure.

Tyler Butler-Figueroa

Tyler was up after Hans and delivered his best performance ever as he put his full violin skills on display with his version of “Hallelujah”. While it was Tyler’s best performance ever, I was honestly bored by it. It felt more school talent show than the AGT stage. He’s good but not good enough to win in my opinion.

V. Unbeatable

Fresh off a fourth-place finish on Season 14 of America’s Got Talent, the dance group from India returned this season to AGT Champions to prove why they should have won their season a few months prior. They earned judge Howie Mandel’s Golden Buzzer in the first round and put together a show-stopping finale performance.

They used new props and flipped through the air. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this is the best dance group I’ve ever seen on any Got Talent shot. They deserved a top-two finish on season 14 and they deserve it now on Champions.

Marcelito Pomoy

The winner of Philippines Got Talent was the penultimate act of the night. After shocking everyone with his unique singing ability in the earlier rounds, he needed to do something different during his last performance. He performed a nice rendition of “Beauty in the Beast” and it was one of the better ones I’ve heard. He may have done just enough to sneak into the top five and have a real shot at winning this. His song was a safe pick, but the superfans do seem to really like him.

Sandou Trio Russian Bar

The final act of the night belonged to the America’s Got Talent 2011 finalists. For their final performance, they put together their most dangerous routine yet which saw them flipping through the air, blindfolded, with a bed of nails on fire beneath them.

It was truly amazing to watch and they are my dark horse to win the entire thing. They really have come a long way from that piano debacle nine years ago.

Who wins it all?

Well, since this was taped back in October, the outcome is already floating around the Internet. However, I’m not going to spoil it for anyone. I’ll just say you need to keep an eye on Sandou Trio Russian Bar and Tyler Butler-Figueroa. They were popular among superfans for a reason!

Who do you think wins it all? Let me know in the comments below!

America’s Got Talent: The Champions concludes next Monday at 8/7c on NBC.
