A part of the global ‘Got Talent’ franchise created by Simon Cowell, NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ is a talent competition show that pits together all kinds of participants — singers, dancers, magicians, comics, and more — from across the country. They showcase their respective talents before celebrity judges to advance in the competition. Each act auditions to secure a place in the live episodes by impressing the judges in front of them.

The qualified participants then compete against one another to earn the judges and the public’s votes to reach the live final. Eventually, the winner receives a heft amount of cash prize.
