AGT – America’s Got Talent – Wikipedia Article
America’s Got Talent (sometimes abbreviated as AGT) is an American reality television series on the NBC television network, and part of the global British Got Talent franchise. It is a talent show that features singers, dancers, magicians, comedians, and other performers of all ages competing for the advertised top prize of one million dollars. The show debuted in June 2006 for the summer television season. From season three onwards, the prize includes the one million dollars, payable in a financial annuity over 40 years (or the present cash value of such annuity), and a chance to headline a show on the Las Vegas Strip. Among its significant features is that it gives an opportunity to talented amateurs or unknown performers, with the results decided by an audience vote. The format is a popular one and has often been reworked for television in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Season ten of the reality competition series America’s Got Talent will premiere on May 26, 2015. Nick Cannon returned as host for his seventh season. Howie Mandel returns for his sixth season as judge while Howard Stern returns for his fourth season. Mel B and Heidi Klum both return for their third season on the judging panel. This season, the show will be celebrating its tenth anniversary with a special two-hour retrospective episode. America’s Got Talent will return to Radio City Music Hall in New York for the live shows, which are scheduled to begin Tuesday, August 11. Dunkin Donuts will be the show’s official sponsor this year with their cups prominently placed on the judges’ desk, which will replace Snapple who sponsored the show since season 7.
