11 acts perform in the last semifinal round on Tuesday

International breakthrough group Little Mix will perform their newest single, "Black Magic," accompanied by season 9 finalists and USA acrobatic gymnasts AcroArmy during the live results show of "America's Got Talent" on Wednesday, Sept. 9 (8-9 p.m. ET) from Radio City Music Hall.

Little Mix singers Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall have quickly established themselves as one of the brightest pop acts in Britain. Their fan base is rapidly growing and spans the globe, from the U.K. and Australia to Japan and the U.S. In 2011, the ladies were the first singing group to win "The X Factor" in its eighth season and have since sold out the O2 Arena in London and toured the world.

Most recently, they performed at the Teen Choice Awards and on NBC's "Today" for the Toyota Summer Concert series. Their new album, "Get Weird," will be released globally on Nov. 6 and includes collaborations with hit artists such as Jess Glynne and Jessie J.

AcroArmy was assembled by artistic director and mentor Arthur Davis in 2014. Davis is a two-time world champion acrobatic gymnast and was a finalist on the first season of "America's Got Talent" with his act, Realis. He has performed in more than 40 countries and has worked for Cirque du Soleil. Competing in groups of two or three across the country, the members of AcroArmy have reached the highest levels of achievement in their sport. The group is comprised of 19 gymnasts ranging in age from 12-30 and every member has garnered national and international titles.

Last night, America chose Derek Hughes, Oz Pearlman, Drew Lynch, Benton Blount and The Craig Lewis Band to move on to the finals. "America's Got Talent" wraps up the last round of semifinals live Sept. 8 (8-10 p.m.) with 11 acts performing for America's vote and the chance to advance one step closer to the $1 million prize.

The semifinalists performing on Tuesday are:
