America has talent -- and Simon Cowell is determined to find it. Each of the contestants, chosen at casting calls around the nation, will have a chance to prove that they have talent in front of judges and America. The winner, chosen by viewers, will receive the opportunity to headline a showcase Las Vegas act.
Five acts from the previous show move on to the Finals. Viewers have one last chance to send their favorite act to the next round. Starring executive producer Simon Cowell, judges Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel and host Terry Crews.
America's Got Talent is coming back for a 17th season. The good news came at the end of tonight's finale, with host Terry Crews announcing that the show will be returning next year and that auditions are already underway.
On the air since 2006, AGT still maintains its position as the summer's top-rated series, regularly beating out its time slot competition. The brand has even expanded with two 'Champions' editions that aired in 2019 and 2020.
Look for Season 17 of America's Got Talent in late spring 2022.
