Sofia Vergara said, “I think you’re very handsome and it’s great that a guy like you that is into sports is also into your music. Now I imagine it’s very different from what your other teammates do. So for you to explore that sensibility, it’s amazing. I loved it.”
Howie Mandel thinks Thomas has great charisma and great tone in his voice, but he thinks “this looked a little nervous and stiff to me.” Howie was booed and got several thumbs down from the audience.”
Heidi Klum said, “I love a young man who is not afraid to sing a small C song.” Heidi started the voting and gave the first Yes.
Simon Cowell thinks it was a really good first audition. “Judging by the reaction from the room, I think the same thing will be, people watching at home they’re gonna want you to do well in this competition, Thomas. But we see a lot of singers who come out here where I’m genuinely struggling going, well, ‘where do you go from this?’ But there are so many songs I could hear you reinterpreting so you’ve got your third yes.”
America’s Got Talent (AGT) Season 15 premiered in the United States on May 26, 2020, on NBC. For this season, AGT judges are Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, returning Heidi Klum, and newcomer Sofia Vergara.
This season is most notable for its production being affected by the COVID-19 or coronavirus pandemic in 2020, which impacted audition sessions. The program initially moved to filming without an audience present at auditions, before ultimately suspending production. Auditions were later allowed to continue, but via online applications from those quarantined in their homes.
The production staff decided to push through with the broadcast as planned and premiere on May 26. Debate continues on how many episodes would be broadcast with the amount of material that had been recorded.
