Stand-up comedian Usama Siddiquee tells funny stories about his experiences at the airport and the club during the Quarterfinals Week 3 of America’s Got Talent 2020 (Season 15).
Usama took a big risk by including what some would describe as “controversial” jokes in his routine and judge Heidi Klum didn’t take it so well when he called her a “tramp” on live television.

Howie Mandel thinks Usama started out fantastic and he loves his energy and commitment. But he observed that the female judges (Sofia and Heidi) reacted differently to Usama’s performance. He said, “I wonder, I’m just sitting beside these two and I don’t know if they were giving you the right response or the response you were expecting.”
Heidi Klum commented, “I guess, I don’t know, being called a tramp probably was my least… uncomfortable part of the whole thing, but that’s just me. But let’s see what America thinks.”
Sofia Vergara said she was laughing but then for a second asked herself, “Should I be not laughing? Should I feel guilty that I’m laughing?” She said Usama took a very risky theme for his performance but thinks he has an amazing presence. “I recommend for you to be in a sitcom. You should try being an actor because you have that energy that I feel you can do anything. Your material, it was kind of risky tonight though.”
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.
