Twelve-year-old violinist Tyler Butler Figueroa touched the hearts and inspired millions of people around the world, including Simon Cowell, who gave him the Golden Buzzer, on Season 14 of “America’s Got Talent.” At four years old, Tyler was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Looking for a way to express himself after being bullied for his hair loss, Tyler started playing the violin. Inspired by violinist Brian King Joseph from Season 13 of “America’s Got Talent,” he started street performing and playing at local events to pay for travel expenses to audition for the show. Tyler is now cancer-free and has been in remission for four years.
Blanco Brown is an American singer, songwriter and record producer who has produced for Chris Brown and Pitbull. Brown’s debut single “The Git Up” was released in April 2019 and as of July 2019 has over 50 million streams on Spotify. In June 2019, Brown debuted on the Billboard charts, appearing at No. 41 on Emerging Artists. “The Git Up” later topped the Hot Country Songs chart and reached the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100.
Brown was raised in Atlanta, Georgia listening to hip hop artists, such as OutKast. In the summers, Brown would visit his grandmother in Butler, Georgia where he would listen to country music, such as Johnny Cash. Brown would go on to appreciate both forms of music.
Brown posted a YouTube video with country artist Lainey Wilson to teach people how to do the dance. ‘The Git Up’ Challenge has increased in popularity since the video was released and has been featured in over 130,000 videos on TikTok. The song reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
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.
