America’s Got Talent: The Champions (often abbreviated as AGT: The 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. The program is produced by Fremantle for the NBC television network, and first premiered on January 7, 2019. The program 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 – at present, the panel consist of America’s Got Talent 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.
In May 2018, executive producer and Got Talent creator Simon Cowell met with executives of NBC to propose the idea of a spin-off competition for the franchise. Cowell had conceived of the idea for a global competition, based on the talent that the franchise had produced across the years from its various international editions, including the American original, and suggested that the competition incorporate some of the most memorable and notable participants from across Got Talent’s history competing against each other within a venue in the United States, where the franchise originated from. Executives favored the idea greatly, due to the success of America’s Got Talent, and opened discussions on the format of the broadcast for the spin-off, which they agreed to have the subtitle of “The Champions”. The decision was for the contest to be held between September and October that year, filming to take place during that time, and episodes edited for broadcast as part of the network’s 2018/2019 winter schedule, in order to avoid conflicting work schedules for those involved in the new program. The new spin-off soon gained approval for production, and announced its creation on May 12, 2018.
As part of the new production, Cowell decided that, alongside himself, the judges from America’s Got Talent’s thirteenth season would be involved in the spin-off competition – Mel B was the first to announce her involvement on July 27, with Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel revealed a month later. However, the main program’s host Tyra Banks could not be involved in the spin-off; media outlets had begun speculating that her upcoming work schedule after the thirteenth season would likely lead to her leaving America’s Got Talent, which later proved correct in the following months. Instead, Cowell and the producers sought a temporary replacement, and choose actor Terry Crews to be the host of The Champions.
The program proved popular following its broadcast, with NBC later commissioning The Champions for a second season. On September 26, 2019, Crews Cowell, Mandel and Klum were revealed as returning for the new season, with singer and Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon replacing Mel B, after she had left America’s Got Talent prior to the fourteenth season.
