Sikeston, Mo., native Neal E. Boyd has moved on to the next round in "America's Got Talent."

The tenor performed Tuesday night, singing an opera-infused rendition of the song "Somewhere" from the musical "West Side Story." He was one of 10 performers.

On Wednesday five of those performers were eliminated. Contestants were paired to announce who was cut, with one of each of those five pairs getting eliminated from the show. Boyd was up with Britney Spears impersonator Derrick Barry.

Boyd's next appearance will likely come in two weeks, when the field of 40 is reduced to 20.

Matthew Piazzi, a New Yorker with ties to Cape Girardeau, will perform on Tuesday's show.
