(CBS News) "America's Got Talent" aired its second live quarterfinals episode on Tuesday night, in which 12 new hopefuls performed for judges Sharon Osbourne, Howard Stern and Howie Mandel.

The first group up was Lion Dance Me, a dance act that combines traditional Chinese movement with balance. Stern and Osbourne agreed that the group needs more variety to captivate the audience. The street dancer Turf performed next, Stern warned him that he is up against some stiff competition and needed to incorporate more dance moves in his act.

The All Ways, a four-piece band that specializes in pop-rock covers, sang Lady Gaga's "Telephone." All around the judges liked the act, but Stern wasn't a fan of the song choice. Hawley Magic, a husband-wife magic act, performed an illusion with a sword. The judges all agreed that the act seemed a little old fashioned and that they should update it.

Highlights from the night included 14-year-old singer Danielle Stallings who sang Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain," acrobatic duo Donovan and Rebecca, stand up comic Tom Cotter, crossbow expert Ben Blaque who were all praised by the judges.

The Lisa Clarck Dancers, Aurora Light Painters and former karaoke singer Big Barry, on the other hand, didn't receive praise from the judges.

The last performer of the night, singer Tim Hockenberry, who sang Katy Perry's "Party of Me" divided the judges. Osbourne and Mandel loved his performance, but Stern was disappointed.

The results show airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
