The opera trio known as Forte have advanced once again on the eighth season of “America’s Got Talent” after a fantastic performance this week.
The group, which is now made up of Puerto Rican-born Fernando Varela, Sean Panikkar, and Josh Page of New York, sang “Unchained Melody” on Tuesday night and received the night’s only standing ovation.
Judge Howie Mandel predicted, “You solidified yourself a place in the [finals]. You solidified a career for yourselves… This was amazing.”
Mandel turned out to be correct, as Forte is now moving on to the finals, along with the first half of the top twelve:
- Jugglers Red Panda
- Magician Collins Key
- Acrobatic dancer Innovative Force
- Comedian Taylor Williamson
- Singer Cami Bradley
- Shadow dancers Catapult Entertainment
Next week, the second set of competitors will battle for the other six spots in the finals.
