In the eleventh week of competition, “America’s Got Talent” narrowed down the talent search by selecting four acts to go to the semifinals — and sending the other eight home on Wednesday night’s results show.

The first three acts up for elimination were Ulysses, Olate Dogs and David “The Bullet” Smith.

Before the decision was announced, judge Sharon Osbourne took a moment to say she was sorry to Ulysses for buzzing him the night before. “It was very disrespectful of me to do that when it was your moment, I apologize,” Osbourne said. She also Tweeted an apology earlier in the day.

Then three of Howard Stern‘s favorite acts were all up for elimination together, which made Stern feel like he was “at the Jackson family compound fighting over the kids.”

But between dancers Unity in Motion, child mariachi singer Sebastien El Charro and harp player William Close, it was music to Close’s ears when he heard he was chosen to move on, beating both of the child acts. Watch Their Reactions in the Clip Below.

Next up, three very different acts were called on stage: sand artist Joe Castillo, singing duo Eric and Olivia, and Horse, a dangerous act that both Howie and Howard’s mothers hate, by the way… But America has voted and the contestant moving on is … the sand man!

In the last round of results, Lindsey Norton, All That! and Eric Dittelman – who came in 4th, 5th and 6th place in Tuesday night’s voting — with just a 1% difference between them. Unfortunately, dancer Lindsey Norton was sent home before the judges made the decision between the other two contestants.

So which one did the judges decide to send through to the semifinals? Dittelman! See how the verdict went down in the clip below.

So those are the four acts that made it to the semifinals — which will air in three weeks, as “AGT” goes on a hiatus during NBC’s London Olympics coverage.
