Sofia Vergara said that Sheldon Riley’s performance was very emotional and also noted his distinctive fashion sense. “I think it’s so unique, this thing that you have created, these costumes and everything, the magic, the mystery. To hide yourself, I think it’s fantastic what you have created. I love it, I love the song and I hope people understand what you’re doing and that they vote for you because I want to see where are you going to take this in this competition,” she said.
Heidi Klum said she is happy that Sheldon finally found himself and his confidence. She thinks he is really cool and loves the mystery of it all and said he is quite beautiful behind that, based on the glimpses they see. Heidi also noted Sheldon’s powerful voice saying, “My favorite is when you really belt it out at the end and you let it go. Because you do have a very strong and powerful voice and you can go there and I loved it. It was very unique.”
Sheldon Riley replied to the judges and said he is so proud to be on the AGT stage and his heart is racing for meeting Heidi Klum. He thanked Heidi and said that when he was a little boy, he used to sneak around and watch her in his lounge room and watch fashion. He said, “Thank you so much for giving someone like me, someone from the lgbt community a voice to express my fashion and to understand it’s not always so available for all of us…Until my time’s up I’m going to live every single day of my life authentically and originally and not predictable. Sofia, I might be hidden right now but I’m not hiding. You cannot hide when you sparkle this fight and that’s what I want to inspire so many people out there in America and the whole world.”
America’s Got Talent Season 15
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 guest judges like Kelly Clarkson and Kenan Thompson to stand in for him until doctors would allow him to return to AGT.
