The Judge Cuts of Season 13 of America's Got Talent will air through July 17, 2018 to August 7, 2018. A total of 72 acts performed. 28 acts, along with 5 Golden Buzzer acts from the auditions, proceeded to the Quarterfinals, and 44 acts were rejected.

Process

The Judge Cuts round will return for its fourth year.

Serving as the middle round between the auditions and the live shows, 72 acts were pulled from the 100+ acts that were accepted by the judges in the Auditions. The Judge Cuts took place over four days; every day, 18 acts performed with only 7 moving on to the Quarterfinals.

Joining the main judging panel were four guest judges while each regular judge was given a normal buzzer, each guest had only a Golden Buzzer he or she could press to send an act to the live shows without further deliberation as one of the 7 acts.
