Great news for all my America's Got Talent fans!! On last night's results episode, the judges announced the four wildcard acts that were chosen to advance into the semifinals after their second-chance performance. I am THRILLED to say that my two favorite participants, little mariachi singer Sebastien De La Cruz, and amazing opera teen Andrew de Leon, both made it through!

YES! I am so excited for both of them, especially because I never thought that they deserved to go home in the first place. And after their stunning performances last night, I can't say that I'm surprised that they have gone on to the next rounds of the competition. With each earning standing ovations and high praise from the judges, there's no way they merited a second elimination.

But at least now that they know they have a spot in the semifinals, they can rest a little easier knowing that they have earned the full support of America and the judges. When it was announced that de la Cruz (whom was Howie Mandel's wild card pick) advanced, both Mandel and Sharon Osbourne gave him a standing ovation. "I hope you go all the way," Mandel said.

De Leon, who was also one of Mandel's picks, also gained high praise from the judge who told him that he has "learned so much" and is now "on his way.

Now, I just can't wait to see what both of them will bring to the next phase of the competition. But no matter what happens, they should definitely be proud to have made it this far.
