    Cowell, a long time fan of Cirque, has struck a partnership deal with the entertainment firm behind it to produce the show starting this autumn. 

    Cirque, famous for its spectacular gravity defying aerial acts and body bending acrobats, is seen as the best in Sin City with hits like Zumanity and MJ One.

    Cowell wants to replicate their success with a hit variety show on the famous Las Vegas Strip.

  • LAST YEAR’S WINNER CONTINUED

    After his quarterfinals performance Mandel commented, “I’ve never been more moved in my life on this show by any other act. We need you on this show. We need in this world… You matter.”

    The 27-year-old walked away with the $1 million prize, a brand new Kia Stinger, and the chance to headline a show for AGT in Las Vegas.

    Reflecting on his win Leake said, “This is a huge win for the spoken-word community. For an art form that has not been on the main stream ever to have a chance to win ‘America’s Got Talent’ is bigger than anything.”

    “I am going to show the world what a spoken-word poet can do.”

  • WHO WON AGT LAST YEAR?

    Brandon Leake was the first spoken-word poet on the talent competition and went on to become the first spoken-word poet to win the show.

    The Stockton, California, native, proved he was a top contender from the beginning when he earned a Golden Buzzer during his audition from Howie Mandel.

    Leake continued to wow the judges getting especially kind remarks from Mandel.

  • WHO WAS THE HOST BEFORE TERRY CREWS?

    Nick Cannon left America’s Got Talent early in 2017 after a much-publicized fallout with NBC.

    Cannon served as the host of NBC’s America’s Got Talent from 2009 to 2016 but did not return for 2017.

  • WHO ARE THE JUDGES?

    Howie MandelHeidi Klum, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell will return as the hosts of the latest season of AGT.

    Simon Cowell is the show’s creator and has hosted for the last five seasons.

    Klum and Mandel have hosted several seasons on and off while Vergara is returning for the show for her second season.

  • WHO’S HOSTING AMERICA’S GOT TALENT?

    Terry Crews will return to season 16 as the host of America’s Got Talent.

    Terry Crews is an actor, comedian, artist, TV host, bodybuilder, and former professional football player.

  • WHAT HAS NIGHTBIRDE SAID?

    Speaking about her withdrawal from the show, the brave contestant wrote on Instagram: “Sharing my heart with the world on AGT has been an honour and a dream come true.

    “What a miracle that the pain I’ve walked through can be reworked into beauty that makes people all over the world open their eyes wider.”

    Nightbirde added: “Since my audition, my health has taken a turn for the worse and the fight with cancer is demanding all of my energy and attention.

    “Life doesn’t always give breaks to those that deserve it, but we knew that already.”

    She concluded: ” Thank you for all your support, it means the world to me. Pretty beat up, but I’ve still got dreams.”

  • WHY DID NIGHTBIRD LEAVE AGT?

    Nightbirde, also known as Jane Marczewski, chose to leave the show to focus on her battle with stage 4 breast cancer.

    The 30-year-old, who impressed judge Simon Cowell so much with her audition that he decided to send the singer straight to the live shows, announced that her cancer had taken a turn for the worse.

    During her audition, Nightbirde revealed to the judges that her cancer had spread to her lungs, spine and liver, and that doctors had only given her a two per cent chance of survival.

    In July 2020 the singer went into remission, although the cancer later returned.

    Nightbirde made one final appearance on AGT via Zoom to explain the reasoning behind her withdrawal.

    Simon Cowell, who broke down in tears, said that she had “already won” in the eyes of America and told her that she “hasn’t let anyone down”.

  • HOW TO WACTH AMERICA’S GOT TALENT

  • KLEK ENTOS UNMASKED

    When he’s not in disguise, Klek Entos is known as David Stone – and he’s not quite as terrifying as his onstage alter ego.

    Originally from France, the magician originally studied philosophy and psychology at university before deciding to pursue a career in the performing arts full time.

  • KLEK ENTOS CONTINUED

    His act, which included host Terry Crews, saw Klek tell a spooky tale to the audience whilst performing some terrifying tricks.

    He couldn’t impress the notoriously tough Simon Cowell, however, who buzzed his performance before it really got going.

    The 61-year-old judge also said that he thought the act had a weak ending and took too long to get really exciting.

    Although the other judges said they enjoyed it, the magician and his fans alike will have to wait until the results show on Wednesday 25 August to see if the spooky routine was enough to progress to the next round.

  • WHO IS KLEK ENTOS?

    Klek Entos is a magician appearing on season 16 of America’s Got Talent.

    The mysterious performer describes himself as “the sum of all your fears” and incorporates elements of horror into his routines.

    Klek first auditioned on the June 16, 2021 episode and made it through to the next stage of the competition easily after impressing all four of the show’s judges – Howie MandelHeidi KlumSofia Vergara and Simon Cowell.

    On August 24, 2021, Klek appeared in the Quarterfinals where he received a standing ovation from Howie Mandel.

  • WHAT DO THE WINNERS RECEIVE?

    Whoever emerges victorious will take home the $1million prize, as well as a headline show in Las Vegas.

  • WHO ARE THE FINALISTS?

    This year’s finalists are: Léa Kyle, Victory Brinker, ChapKidz, the Northwell Nurse Choir – along with Brooke Simpson, Josh Blue, 1aChord, Rialcris, Peter Antoniou, Kabir Singh, and UniCircle Flow.
