Georgia singer Angelica Hale did not make the top five but was in the final 12. 

“Being there was just amazing getting to be back,” 11-year-old Hale said in an interview before the finale aired. “The competition was very tough.” Howie Mandel had given her the Golden Buzzer, a moment she called “mind-blowing.”

Viral sensation Susan Boyle, who sang the same song she chose during her opening audition on “Britain’s Got Talent” a decade ago, also didn’t make the cut.

The top five featured only two singers, including runner-up Farmer, who had her puppet Petunia sing opera. 

Ukrainian sand artist Kseniya Simonova came in third. Over-the-top Spanish singer Cristina Ramos landed fourth. And stand-up comic Preacher Lawson landed fifth. 

The other seven were not actually “placed” in any order; they were just eliminated.
