The incredible run of the children's choir Voices of Hope came to an end Wednesday night on the NBC talent show America's Got Talent. But that didn't tamp the enthusiasm of judge Simon Cowell, who stood in support with the kids on the stage as they found out they had not received enough audience votes to move on in the competition.
"I've loved every performance from you," he had said after their performance Tuesday night, citing them as his favorite act. "I love you. These guys are amazing absolutely amazing."
Watch the kids' final performance of "Defying Gravity" from Wicked in the semifinals.
