JOHN DOTE' PRESENTS AMERICA'S GOT TALENT

America's Got Talent

ABOUT THE SHOW

On the heels of the most viewed season in five years, the 12th season of "America's Got Talent" is back with creator and judge Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel.  

Supermodel, entrepreneur and CEO, Tyra Banks, joins the team as host and the series returns to Los Angeles this summer with live shows from the famed Dolby Theatre.  

With the search open to acts of all ages and talents, "America's Got Talent" has brought the variety format back to the forefront of American culture by showcasing unique performers from across the country. The series is a true celebration of creativity and talent, featuring a colorful array of singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians, ventriloquists and hopeful stars, all vying to win America's hearts and the $1 million prize.

Last summer, "America's Got Talent" remained the #1 summer show and had the highest-rated season in five years, with a season average of 13.5 million viewers and more than 1 billion video views across its far-reaching social media handles. The exciting finale came down to teen singing sensation Grace VanderWaal and spell-binding illusionist duo The Clairvoyants. The charming VanderWaal triumphed and won America's hearts.

VanderWaal went on to release her first EP, titled "Perfectly Imperfect," which became the highest-selling EP of 2016, demonstrating the power of "AGT" to create an instant star. Also, her "Got Talent" audition video was one of the top trending videos of the year and currently has over 135 million views.

Past "AGT" highlights include first-ever magician winner in 2014, Mat Franco, who went on to headline the "America's Got Talent Live" stage show as well as the "Magic Reinvented Nightly" stage show — both held in Las Vegas. Another fan favorite was the season-seven winner Olate Dogs in 2012. Led by Richard Olate and his son Nicholas, this high-energy, fast-paced dog act was an audience favorite filled with unbelievable pet tricks.

In 2011, sentimental favorite and West Virginia jazz singer Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. beat out thousands of acts to take home the coveted $1 million grand prize. Prior to that, Mississippi-born soul singer Michael Grimm was crowned the winner of a spectacular season five, which also brought national attention to 10-year-old classical singer and phenom Jackie Evancho, who has gone on to release several best-selling albums. In that same season, the show also discovered Lindsey Stirling, a hip-hop violinist. She has since gone on to release three albums with her second album, "Shatter Me," ranking as the #2 dance/electronic album and #1 classical album on Billboard's 2015 year-end charts. Her third album, "Brave Enough," was released in 2016.  

The second season of "America's Got Talent" introduced audiences to the incredibly talented Terry Fator, a ventriloquist, singer and comedian from Dallas who has had a headlining show in Las Vegas since 2007 and currently performs at the Mirage Hotel.

The "Got Talent" format, created by Simon Cowell and co-owned by Syco Entertainment and FremantleMedia globally, holds the Guinness World Record as the most successful reality TV format of all time, airing in 186 countries and having been commissioned in 68 territories worldwide. Around the world more than 500 million people watch "Got Talent" every year. "Britain's Got Talent" has remained the U.K.'s #1 entertainment show since it first launched in 2007 and discovered global singing sensational Susan Boyle, who has sold 23 million records to date.

"America's Got Talent" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Syco Entertainment. Simon Cowell, Sam Donnelly, Jason Raff, Trish Kinane and Richard Wallace are the executive producers.
