The AGT judging panel praised him after his performance of “Kiss Goodbye All Night” on Tuesday, with used-to-be curmudgeon Simon Cowell going as far as to call him the best of the night. Ultimately it wasn’t their call, however — it was up to America’s Got Talent viewers to decide which two finalists would move on to the finals.

So, did Drake Milligan make the America’s Got Talent finals? Apologies for the drawn out answer. We’re not trying to keep you scrolling like a recipe website, it’s just that people on the West Coast get real mad when we spoil it too early …

After being included among the Top 5, Milligan learned he’d advanced to the Top 3 just 10 minutes before the show ended. Musician Avery Dixon and comedian Don McMillian were the other two finalists. However only two move on to the finals, meaning each man had to sweat through a well-timed commercial break.

Milligan didn’t have to sweat much longer than that. The country singer was the first to be named a finalist for Season 17 of America’s Got Talent. He thanked voters and the judges and accepted a few kind words before stepping away. Dixon — whom Cowell called the next Carrie Underwood — was named the second finalist of the night.
