Escondido Star Advances to ‘America's Got Talent' Semifinals, Thanks to Fan Save

NBC Universal, Inc.

It was down to the wire for "America's Got Talent" contestant Celina Graves, but the Escondido singer advanced to the show's semifinal round on Wednesday, thanks to a fan vote.

Graves faced elimination but survived an end to her AGT career. Credit goes to the Dunkin' Save, which allows fans to vote for the contestant they want to see advance.

Graves, 31, rocked the stage back in June and heard rave reviews from the judges.

“I have a good feeling about you, Celina,” judge Simon Cowell told her.

NBC 7's Claudette Stefanian has an update on the local talent's progress in the show.

Graves was one of 11 contestants to compete on Tuesday's AGT, without a live studio audience due to coronavirus restrictions. She will compete in the semifinals next week. You can watch AGT every Tuesday and Wednesday at 8 p.m. on NBC 7.
