“America’s Got Talent” finally reached the live-show phase on Tuesday night as 12 acts — including Danville’s Sophie Pecora — went all out in an effort to win viewer votes.

Now comes the heart-wrenching part. On Wednesday’s Results Show, we were forced to say good-bye to five of those acts. So who advanced — and who didn’t?
