Angelica Hale, Magician Shin Lim Advance to ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ Finals

    Two Asian-Americans have advanced to the finals of the spin-off show “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” – Filipino-American singer Angelica Hale and Canadian-American magician Shin Lim, according to AsAm News.


    Hale, “AGT’s” 11-year-old powerhouse singer, made second place in “America’s Got Talent” season 12. She was the youngest ever in the show’s history to become a runner-up – Hale was only nine years old at the time, Philippine Star reported.


    Lim, a 27-year-old close-up magician who won “America’s Got Talent” last last year, blew away the judges’ minds and landed himself a safe spot in one of the 12 lucky finalists in “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.”

    Those who are excited to see the winner of this first season will have to tune in on Monday, February 18, as all the finalists will perform their best in front of judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel and new host Terry Crews, according to Gold Derby.
