As featured at NBC on Wednesday night on Day 3 of the Las Vegas Week, the three America’s Got Talent Season 7 judges composed of Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel, and Howard Stern have narrowed down the 100+ acts into Top 48 semifinalists who moved forward to compete in New York next week.

Apparently, Big Barry, the 70-year old ‘teenager’ who stands at 4’10” and almost did not make it during his audition at Tampa, Florida as aired early last week, is included in the AGT 2012 Top 48 semifinalists; while Tim Poe, who won the hearts of millions with his singing talent and story, is not included.

During Big Barry‘s audition, as shown in the video below, his singing talent did not seem to please Stern, who pressed the buzzer while he is still singing; but his stage presence later convinced Mandel and won his approval. Osbourne voted ‘no and Stern changed his mind later as he went to him on stage and eventually voted ‘yes’ to him.

For Tim Poe, who said during this audition that he suffered an injury in Afghanistan back in 2009 but Minnesota National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Kevin Olson said early this month that he is a fraud, E! noted that the recent elimination was filmed last month, which means he was eliminated based on his performance.
