America had to make a tough decision last night as 12 talented acts fought for the 4 open spots in the “America’s Got Talent” semifinals.
Sebastien De la Cruz, the 10-year-old Charro de Oro, a seemingly promising act, unfortunately did not make it to the next round.
“The only thing that’s making me nervous is if America will like my music,” said De la Cruz before his performance on Tuesday.
The young mariachi stood next to “Unity in Motion” dance group and William Close the instrument inventor to hear the results.
Nick Cannon then broke the news to the acts that William Close had made it to the semifinals.
El Charro de Oro gave Close a hug to congratulate him on his win and quickly ran off the stage with his band.
De la Cruz took to twitter to tell his fans that he is still in good spirits after the “America’s Got Talent” results. He posted a YouTube video of himself singing a Mariachi song to his family and friends.

Even though the young boy did not make it to the semifinals there are still three Latino contests that are in the run for the million-dollar prize.
Joe Castillo, sand-story artist, competed against Eric and Olivia and The Horse, all three very different acts.
“Joe you are a great artist with a great message that speaks to America in so many levels,” said Howie Mandel before the results were in.
Castillo came out successful last night and is heading to the semi-finals.
“I’m honored, I’m humbled but very happy,” said Castillo.
Another fan favorite that made it through was the Olate Dogs act. Father and son dog trainers, Richard and Nicolas Olate, have a high-energy dog act filled with back flips and jumps.
“I love your act and all the dog lovers out there know how difficult this is and what a bond you two have with these animals,” said Howard Stern Tuesday night about the dog act.
Chilean Richard Olate lived in his home country until he was 33. With hard work and many struggles, Olate finally made it to the United States and brought his dog act with him.
The duo was very happy after host Nick Cannon announced that they had a spot in the semi-finals.
See Jose Castillo and Olate Dogs next Tuesday on NBC at 8 p.m EST as they compete in the semi-finals.
