[via press release from NBC]


Top 12 Acts Perform in the Next Round of Competition on Tuesday, Sept. 10

NEW YORK - September 5, 2013 - Two of "AGT's" most popular winners, Terry Fator and Olate Dogs, return to perform on NBC's "America's Got Talent" results show, Wednesday, Sept. 11 (9-10 p.m. ET).

Season 2 winner Terry Fator captured the hearts and funny bones of America with his unique combination of singing, comedy and celebrity impressions. Fator first discovered his knack for impressions at the age of six and got his first paying gig at age 12. He began his professional career with gigs at county fairs, school performances and corporate events, and a trip to Las Vegas in 2005 stoked his desire to become a big-name entertainer. His win on "America's Got Talent" in 2007 led to a multi-year contract to perform in his very own theater at the legendary Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Fator's current contract at The Mirage will keep him at the resort through 2016. In 2013, he celebrated his 1,000th show and welcomed his millionth guest at The Mirage, and was named the "Best Show," "Best All-Around Performer," "Best Impersonator" and "Best Overall Show" in the Las Vegas Review-Journal's prestigious "Best of Las Vegas" poll.

Last season's hit variety act, the Olate Dogs, won the million dollar prize and a headlining show at The Palazzo in Las Vegas. Led by Richard Olate and his son Nicholas, the Olate Dogs are a high-energy, fast-paced theatrical act filled with doggie friendly and amazing pet tricks. A third generation circus performer from a poor South American family, Richard has been in the spotlight since he was 12, and through hard work and constant struggle, he made it to the United States at the age of 33. His dream to have his own dog variety show has come true as he currently has four completely different dog acts. Most of the Olate dogs are rescues from shelters. Currently, the Olate Dogs can be seen at NBA halftime shows and touring the country. Talented singer, dancer and performer Nicholas Olate recently completed his debut album with Grammy-nominated songwriter-producer Tommy Marolda, slated for release in Fall 2013.

"America's Got Talent" stages the next performance show on Tuesday, Sept. 10 (9-11 p.m. ET) where the remaining Top 12 acts will perform for America's vote. Six will move on to the final round of competition on Sept. 17 (9-11 p.m. ET).

Branden James
Cami Bradley
Catapult Entertainment
Chicago Boyz
Collins Key
D'Angelo and Amanda
Innovative Force
