Nevada County native misses finals on "America’s Got Talent"

Nevada County native Ashleigh Dejon fell short in a bid to make it to the finals of “America’s Got Talent.”

The aerial dancer was a semi-finalist and appeared on NBC’s TV show Tuesday night with her partner Michael Lipari, but did not make it to the top 10.

Dejon, 29, lives in Los Angeles, but spent summers and holidays as a child with her dad in Grass Valley.

The official recap of judges’ reactions, from the NBC website:

“The aerial dancing duo Michael Lipari and Ashleigh Dejon perform their high-flying dance routine for the judges and audience. Piers really likes the chemistry between Michael and Ashleigh and likes their act. Sharon thinks they were beautiful on stage, and Howie likes that they take risks.”
