Sal Valentinetti was a jazz singer/crooner act from Season 11 of America's Got Talent. He finished the competition in 5th place.

BackgroundEdit

Sal Valentinetti is an Italian pizza delivery man for his cousin's place from Bethpage, New York. He wants to bring back Dean Martin-style roasts.

Sal first learned the American standards at his grandmother's knee and his passion grew further when he discovered his hidden vocal talent in his teenage years. "Sal the Voice," as he is known by everyone from Brooklyn to Bayshore, can be found on most Sundays sipping cappuccino at the café, telling stories, making jokes and planning his next move - to bring back to American pop culture the consummate, classy, old-school entertainer with a heart of gold. [1]

When his grandmother passed away, her music was all Sal had to remember her by. He had previously tried out for season 14 of American Idol, where he successfully made it past the auditions but did not proceed to the live shows. 

AuditionEdit

Sal Valentinetti's audition in Episode 1103 consisted of singing Frank Sinatra's "My Way." Howie Mandel and Mel B began the judging by voting "Yes." Then, moved by his performance, Heidi Klum pressed her Golden Buzzer to send Sal straight to the Quarterfinals.

QuarterfinalsEdit

Sal Valentinetti's Week 2 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 1113 consisted of singing a jazz rendition of One Direction's "Story of My Life". Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell gave him standing ovations. While the judges gave their feedback, Simon (jokingly) buzzed because Howie Mandel said something that he did not agree with. Sal finished in sixth, seventh, or eighth place in America's Vote. In the Dunkin' Save, Sal received more online votes than both Kadie Lynn and ThroWings, sending him to the Semifinals in Episode 1114.

SemifinalsEdit

Sal Valentinetti's Week 1 Semifinals performance in Episode 1117 consisted of singing Frank Sinatra's "That's Life". Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell gave him standing ovations. Sal received enough votes to be sent to the Finals in Episode 1118 instead of Malevo.

FinalsEdit

Sal Valentinetti's Finals performance in Episode 1121 consisted of singing "Mack The Knife" by Bobby Darin. Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all gave him standing ovations.

FinaleEdit

For the finale in Episode 1122, Sal Valentinetti sang "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" with The Jersey Boys. Sal received enough votes to advance to the Top 5 instead of Tape Face. Sal finished in fifth place in the competition overall, behind Grace VanderWaal, The Clairvoyants, Jon Dorenbos, and Brian Justin Crum.

TriviaEdit

  • Sal Valentinetti progressed further in Season 11 than any of the other acts that had to rely on the Dunkin' Save or Judges' Choice in the Quarterfinals and Semifinals.
