Fans of “America’s Got Talent” continued their love affair with the American Military Spouses Choir Wednesday night, voting the women – including Stephanie Holmberg of Fort Leavenworth – on to compete in the semifinals.

“You definitely touched the hearts of America,” judge Mel B told the choir after host Nick Cannon announced that it lived to compete another day. “Well-done, well-deserved, congratulations. I’m so happy for you.”

The other three acts chosen for the semifinals included the Chicago Boyz gymnastic dance troupe, operatic singer Jonathan Allen and Japanese dancer/martial artist Kenichi Ebina.

On Tuesday night’s show, judge Howie Mandel said that Ebina deserves to win the $1 million prize.

And judge Howard Stern warned the other acts moving on that they’d better step up their game to compete with Ebina.
