The Willis Clan was among the 48 to make the America’s Got Talent season 9 quarterfinal cut on Wednesday night.
The 12-person brother-and-sister band made it through after performing a version of “Fireflies.”
“With an act like that, you can’t help but smile,” Howard Stern said after the Willis Clan performed.
“They are the cutest damn act ever.”
Singer Anna Clendening, 11-year-old singer Mara Justine, and U.S. veteran and singer Paul Leti also made it through.
Singers Miguel Dakota and Jaycob Curlee, tap-dancing duo Sean and Luke, male salsa dancers John and Andrew, and return contestant Kelli Glover also made it through.
Adrian Romoff, a 10-year-old pianist whose goal is to make it to college by age 12, the Chinese dance group Jasmine Flowers, and the hip-hop dance group Dragon House also made it to the quarterfinals.
The final act to make the cut will be revealed next week, coming from the TODAY show, which teamed up with Talent to screen its own competition.
The quarterfinals will begin next Tuesday with acts including Sean and Luke, and Curlee.
The quarterfinals will continue next Wednesday as well.
America’s Got Talent has stayed popular enough to already get a renewal for season 10.
