America’s Got Talent: The Champions (often abbreviated as AGT: The Champions, AGT Champions or simply AGTC) is a spin-off of America’s Got Talent (also known as AGT), a televised American talent show competition, created by Simon Cowell. Produced by Fremantle for the NBC TV network, the show first premiered on January 7, 2019. It functions similar to AGT, but involves a variety of participants taken from across both AGT and the Got Talent franchise – including winners, finalists, live round participants and other notable entries – who compete against each other to secure a place in a grand final, in which the winner receives a cash prize and the title of America’s chosen “World Champion” within Got Talent.
The spin-off is hosted by Terry Crews, joined by a panel of judges. Currently, the panel consist of AGT judges, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel, with Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon joining for the second season. Unlike the standard format for any edition of Got Talent, The Champions’ contest is not held live – votes for the best act are conducted under a different voting system, and episodes are pre-recorded and aired a few months after the competition has ended. Following the first season, NBC renewed the spin-off for a second season that premiered on January 6, 2020.
A total of 40 contestants from across the Got Talent franchise will participate during The Champions contest in 2020, with each of the contest’s preliminaries featuring around 10 participants. Those receiving a Golden Buzzer in each preliminary would secure an automatic place in the grand-final. Remaining places would be competed for in two semi-finals, each consisting of the two highest voted in each preliminary, along with a third in each voted for by the judges from amongst those placing 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively in the audience vote.
The first season of America’s Got Talent: The Champions was won by magician Shin Lim. The Canadian-American magician is the winner of America’s Got Talent Season 13. He is known for his incredible sleight of hand and for close-up card magic routines. Lim is self-taught, having learned most of his skills from watching YouTube.
