Sofia Vergara exclaimed that she wants Battaglia to win, saying Battaglia has a special place in her heart. Vergara recalled it was her first day as AGT judge when Battaglia auditioned and said, “I cannot believe how spectacular you sing. It’s like I think the world is going to open up for you, I mean, after this experience.”
Kelly Clarkson thinks Battaglia is incredible. “I cannot believe your age, like even if you were 27 and sounding like that, your tone is so beautiful and it’s effortless. And I can’t even wait to see what you do for the rest of your life, obviously it’s gonna be singing, but like all the potential you have is insane.” Kelly encouraged America to vote for Battaglia.
Howie Mandel is so proud of Battaglia, pointing out that they are both from Toronto. “You blow me away…I said to Sofia right after that, I think that you have a good chance of winning this whole season, number one. Number two, your voice is great and the ability to sing through a horrible butterfly attack like that is amazing.
Heidi Klum said she has so much respect for Battaglia and thinks she’s absolutely incredible and so is her voice. She said Sofia saw Battaglia’s talent and was right in giving her the Golden Buzzer. “I hope now America sees that too and will vote for you.”
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.
Production resumed the week of June 22, 2020, filming on a film backlot in Simi Valley, decorated to look like a drive-in movie theater. Everyone, including the judges and host Terry Crews, wore masks when not on camera. The Judge Cuts round was reduced from four episodes to one, and the acts were reduced from 72 to 60. The live shows will feature 44 acts over four weeks, compared to 36 acts appearing over three weeks last season.
Producers decided to include a virtual audience for the Live Shows and Universal Studios Hollywood was chosen as the venue for performances to take place.
Prior to the first quarter-final’s live broadcast, Cowell became involved in an electric bike accident that left him with a severe back injury. Cowell had surgery to repair the damage, and the production staff recruited Kelly Clarkson to stand in for him until doctors would allow him to return to AGT.
