Amazing! Darci Lynne And Preacher Lawson's Bettle Stage With Surpring Performnce Totally Shocked Judges And Audience!

The Season 12 winner and runner-up return to the "AGT" stage with incredible individual performances -- but it's their hilarious rivalry that really steals the show!

It was good news for five of last night's eleven acts on   as well as one act eliminated in the previous rounds.

Building of the finals began with the first five acts advancing into the big Season 14 finale in two weeks time. Meanwhile, a promo for next week revealed that fan-favorite dog act Lukas & Falco had scored the final wild card spot of the season, joining ten other acts competing for the final five spots.

Last night was a mixed bag of talent, but that wasn't the case tonight as "AGT" welcomed back performances from Season 12's winner and runner-up, Darci Lynne and Preacher Lawson. This unlikely duo have developed an incredible rapport simply through their shared experience on "AGT" and "AGT: Champions" ... and Darci beating Preacher both times.

One of the funniest comedians this show has ever seen and one of its most gifted (and youngest) ventriloquists might seem an odd pairing, but both are so charming and funny they manage to make it work.

Tonight, both of them took to the stage to perform separately, but it was a joint video package that really stole the night and kept us laughing long after the final results had been revealed.

As for those, we gave you our Top 5 last night and then immediately predicted that you would ignore our recommendations to reward kids. So what did you do?

Darci Lynne & Preacher Lawson

"AGT" is getting a lot of mileage pretending that Preacher Lawson is all ate up about coming in second to ventriloquist Darci Lynne two seasons ago. They played with it in "Champions," where she beat him again, and again here. And yet, there is gold in this comedy bit where he is overlooked and jealous and Darci is just sweet and beloved by everyone. It helps that Darci is so game to play along. Honestly, the two have a great chemistry and as weird as it is to say, this premise would make for a fun foundation for a sitcom. Maybe Preacher gets his own show, but doesn't know it stars Darci until he's signed the contracts and is on set.

Even stammering a bit, Preacher proved once again why he is a consummate professional up on that stage. Compare his confidence and performance -- not even the material -- to what Jackie did last night and it's easy to see why she got such mixed reviews. Stand-up comedy is so much about the presentation, though sharp material works. Springboarding off of his fake Darci hate created good continuity, though he could have used more time to settle into his upbringing stories.

She seemed to be gritting her grin a little tighter, and when she hit those really big notes, you could see the breath between them, but Darci is still incredible being able to sing without moving her mouth. That said, we still wish she would spend more time talking and interacting with her puppets before going into those songs. But that was a criticism throughout her run on the show and she still won, so what do we know?
