America’s Got Talent sets the stage for big changes

 

First airing Jun 21, 2006, America’s Got Talent has successfully produced 13 seasons; showcasing skills that are highly intelligent or downright deadly. Magician, Shin, won this year’s competition on Sept. 19. As it turns out, he won’t be out of the spotlight for long. It won’t be for the headline show in Vegas, or the million dollar prize. NBC is launching a new side of America’s Got Talent, one that has been catching wind on social media. Starting Jan. 7,  2019, each winner of the previous competitions will be coming back together to face off in a high stakes talent show to determine which contestant is the true champion.

In addition, the regular show will be scheduled for its 14th season a few months later. Auditions are currently being held for the upcoming year. There are centers sprouting out across the US to ensure each contestant has a fairly local audition to go to. One is taking place in NC in Charlotte on Dec. 15. Other places the crew will be visiting include New York, Detroit, Knoxville, Morongo Casino, Tampa, San Antonio and Los Angeles. Auditions are also available to be sent in online.

Watchers are expected to see talents such as Susan Boyle of Britain’s Got Talent. She first debuted on April 11, 2009, and defied all expectations with her cover of “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables. Similarly, Britain’s Got Talent group, Attraction, is going to be featured. The third group act to win BGT, they debuted in 2013 and moved the judges to tears. They played with deception and used their bodies to contort into the shapes of people to tell a story. One of which is a military story, where a soldier had to leave his pregnant wife to serve, and tragically gets killed in action. The scene ends with his wife and their child resting flowers on his grave. Throughout each of their acts there was not a dry eye in the room.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the new seasons and hope to see more amazing acts. With auditions still open, who knows what we’re going to see from the new talent, and the returning acts. Make sure to tune in on January 7 to find out!
