Her outstanding performances have shown off her confidence and stage presence, and received judges’ praise. And Kazakhstan’s Daneliya Tuleshova‘s bright light will continue to shine through at least one more round of America’s Got Talent, as she was voted directly through to the semi-finals on Wednesday night’s quarter-final two results show.
Daneliya Tuleshova through to America’s Got Talent semi-finals
But fans of the Junior Eurovision 2018 star had to endure a bit of a wait for her spot in the semi-finals to be assured. After two semi-final slots were already decided, it was her turn to take a spot stage right in the third pairing –which she adorably almost forgot — and hear her fate.
Two more acts joined her. The first being Kelvin Dukes, a 14-year-old singer from Maryland who many thought had a spot guaranteed with a strong performance, even from a remote location on the Universal Studios lot. The trio was completed by The Shape, a Californian dance crew.
There were a few tense moments, as Daneliya’s advancement wasn’t a guarantee.
As soon as host Terry Crews announced the result, however, Daneliya was overcome with sweet emotion. After being asked how she felt by Crews (who kept socially distant), she tearfully thanked fans, saying, “Thank you so much for your votes…I’m so happy..I can’t believe..Thank you so much”.
Judge Sofia Vergara showered praise on her, saying “I am so happy! You are perfection! Don’t change anything! Keep doing what you’re doing because it’s flawless….I love you”. It’s hard to argue with a vote of confidence like that!
Daneliya Tuleshova’s America’s Got Talent journey continues
Daneliya’s next appearance in front of the America’s Got Talent judges and audience (both virtually and on TV), won’t be until at least 9 September. There are still two more quarterfinals to be aired and voted on. That gives fans all around the world plenty of time to be proud for how far the “Òzińe Sen” singer has come, and collectively hope she can continue to slay!
