America's Got Talent Season 16 is down to its live shows on NBC, with the top 36 acts of the year set to compete across the quarter finals, the semis and the grand finale.

As the NBC show heads into its final rounds, viewers will be able to vote for who they want to stay in the competition and compete, to join performers like Brandon Leake, Grace VanderWaal and Bianca Ryan as the latest winner of AGT.

For the next few weeks, the live shows will air on Tuesdays, with the results show airing the following day when it is revealed who is progressing to the next round. Here's how you can make your voice heard this year.

How to vote on America's Got Talent 2021

Across the live shows, the place where viewers can vote will remain the same. On Tuesdays, during the two-hour episodes, fans in the U.S. will be able to vote for their favorite on the America's Got Talent app and at nbc.com/agtvote.

On the Wednesday results shows for the quarter finals, these votes will be tabulated, with seven of the twelve acts going through to the semis.

Once those seven have been revealed, the website and app will open up the Instant Save vote, which allows fans to vote for one of the acts that week who did not make it to the next round and send them to the semis. This vote will open from 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT on the site and app.

Then, the vote will be closed again until the next quarter final on Tuesday.
