And, acrobatic 29-crew dance group, V.Unbeatable danced their way through the quarter-finals. Leaving everyone's heart-pounding, it was judge Gabrielle Union's husband guest judge Dwayne Wade who gave them their golden buzzer.
As for the sensational violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa, it was non-other than Simon Cowell who hit his golden buzzer. Simon was charmed by his performance of Kelly Clarkson's song Stronger. The 11-year-old, who was diagnosed with leukemia, was bullied for it.
After his performance, Simon asked the young performer about his feelings to which Tyler claimed to be feeling proud of himself. Simons was so impressed by his talent and motivation his only response was to send the talented guy to the live shows
Further, singer and pianist Kodi Lee was Gabrielle Union's pick for the 14th season. Ever since being introduced to America's Got Talent stage, Kodi wowed judges and viewers alike. Blind and born with autism, Kodi's first performance moved the judges so much that Gabrielle could not stop her hand from hitting the buzzer.

Similarly, Light Balance Kids- the fantastic dance group - filled with kids received their buzzer from the guest judge, Ellie Kemper. Showing off their insane talent with neon glow-in-the-dark effects, the dancers amazed the judges with a synchronized routine that would make anyone love it.
Well, it was the Detroit Youth Choir who won host Terry Crews' heart. A group comprised of inner-city children, the lively performance was more than enough for a golden buzzer, but a blast from the past added more to Terry's life.
