The NBC talent competition series revealed that ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer and magician Jon Dorenbos can redeem themselves after previously getting eliminated.

Over the last five weeks, 50 talented acts — known for their previous performances on different AGT franchises around the world — were invited back to perform in front of judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, Mel B and host Terry Crews, in the hopes of making it to the Champions finale.
