Singers Emily West and Mara Justine were the first two acts to learn their fates. West advanced to the finals. Stern congratulated Emily, noting that with all the singers in the competition she had to work hard for a spot in the finale. He credited her song choice, look and originality for getting her there.

West was even lucky enough to be invited to a private post-show after party, and she made sure to get a selfie with Howard Stern.
