The Semifinals of Season 1 of America's Got Talent took place from July 12, 2006 to August 10, 2006, in Hollywood. A total of 58 acts participated. Only 41 acts actually performed, 9 of those acts twice in the Semifinals. 10 acts proceeded to the Finals, and 48 acts were eliminated.

  • Strikethroughs indicate that the act was chosen to return for the Wild Card Show.

ProcessEdit

58 of the 61 acts that passed through the audition round and thus were eligible for the Semifinals were split into 4 groups, 2 with 15 acts and 2 with 14 acts. Each week, only 10 of the acts in each group performed; the 4 or 5 other acts were eliminated without performing.

Each week, the judges (Piers Morgan, Brandy Norwood, and David Hasselhoff) chose one act at the end of the performance night to move on to the Finals. The act with the most viewer votes would also move on to the Finals. Whichever act came in 2nd place with the viewers was guaranteed a spot in the Wild Card Round, where two previously eliminated acts could be voted into the Finals.
