Not everyone can make it all the way. America’s Got Talent announced a few more acts going home Wednesday night. 

The Masqueraders 

This trio of singers was sent home after giving a stunning performance of an original song (I’m Just An Average Guy) they’d planned to release nearly 50 years ago, but say they couldn’t due to civil unrest after Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. Despite their elimination, they achieved their long-time dream of performing the song for millions. 

Demian Aditya 

Aditya’s act, which was seemingly shut down in an unexplained mess blamed on technical issues, inspired Simon Cowell to compare it to Mel B’s wedding night and the former Spice Girl’s subsequent walk-out. While Aditya had proven himself other times on the show, it wasn’t enough to get him through Wednesday. 

The Pompeyo Family 

Who doesn’t love dogs who can do cool tricks? America, apparently. Although the Pompeyos had their adorable poodles dancing in conga lines across the stage Tuesday, the votes didn’t fall in their favor.

These guys were fun, but we were never quite sure what their act was. Singing? Dancing? Who knows. While the judges and audience seemed to appreciate their upbeat vibe, other acts surpassed them this time. 

Brobots & Mandroidz 

Slated against Light Balance, this group didn’t have much of a shot. Light Balance is also a dancing crew, but they incorporate lights (shocker) into their performances. Also, they scored Tyra Banks’ golden buzzer, which doesn’t hurt.
