The Judges selected the 6th and final act, which was between Emil and Dariel & Miguel Dakota. Heidi & Mel B bother voted & selected Emil and Dariel, Howie & Howard voted & selected Miguel Dakota. Since the 2 acts were tied with 2 votes each they had to go by the act that had received the most votes by the home viewers. Nick was handed a card and opened it up and revealed that Miguel Dakota had received more votes between the 2 acts and became the 6th and final act to move onto the finals. On next Tuesday’s night’s episode the final 6 acts will be performing in an attempt to become the winner of Season 6 & the $1 Million Dollars.
