On Monday, January 7, the best of the best from America’s Got Talent (AGT) returned to compete for the title of America’s Got Talent overall champion. The show, America’s Got Talent: The Champions, is a spin-off to the hit competition show America’s Got Talent (goldderby.com).

The judges, Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell, have all returned, but there is a new face in the host position: actor, Terry Crews. Model and actress Tyra Banks couldn’t return for this season to host due to prior commitments filming the sequel to Disney’s LifeSize; click here to read a review on the movie and to learn all about Freeform’s LifeSize 2.

The concept of the show is simple. According to Goldderby.com, There are 10 finalists of Got Talent from around the world that are fighting to get one of the two spots, golden buzzer or super-fan vote, to advance to the finals in each episode. The golden buzzer is assigned to a judge each night and they can save one of the ten acts, the other nine can only be saved through the super-fan vote. The super-fan vote is hand selected super-fans of AGT from all 50 states.

Many fan favorites from AGT have returned to compete (tvline.com):

  • singer, Susan Boyle
  • comedian, Vicki Barbolak
  • singer, Courtney Hadwin
  • comedian, Preacher Lawson
  • ventriloquist, Darci Lynne
  • comedian, Samuel J. Comroe
  • magician, Jon Dorenbos
  • comedian, Drew Lynch

*SMALL SPOILER BELOW*

With the stakes higher than ever there is no current prediction on who will win it all, but with fan favorites like ventriloquist Darci Lynne, singer Courtney Hadwin, and comedian Vicki Barbolak eliminated, many are trying to bring one of them back through the wild card vote on Twitter (nbc.com).
