Where's it at people? I'm somekindofguy, and as is the usual I'm starting up the discussion for the 2020 season of America's Got Talent.

What is this?
Basically another talent show in the wasteland of primetime TV. You'll get singers with sob stories, yes, but you will also get magic, comedy, danger, acrobatics and a lot of stuff in between.We've had magicians and dancers go on to win the whole thing, but last year went to blind/autistic singer Kodi Lee. And hey, if an act you like doesn't get through, feel free to vent here about it.

What's new this season?
Well, we have another lineup change this year, with the return of one judge and a brand new addition to the lineup



Joining everyone's favorite germophobic comedian Howie Mandel, all around killer Terry Crews and reality TV kingmaker Simon Cowell are:
-Project Runway and modeling veteran Heidi Klum
-Actress and model Sofia Vergara

Along with various guest judges throughout the season. With the Coronavirus still wreaking havoc, the plan for the live shows is still up in the air, but apparently they have been having online auditions to supplement the taped ones. Should be interesting to see how it unfolds.

Where can I catch this?
The first episode of the auditions airs tonight on NBC, 8 PM Eastern. Don't worry if you miss it though, as NBC tends to put clips on via Youtube the next morning, letting you catch the highlights without all the fluff.

Hope you enjoy, and pray for less singers.

New episode is on now, and they seriously cut to commercial when they were trying to call a guys parents to tell him how they did.

In Mypos, only the strong survive.

I havenít watched this show in years and I think by pure luck I turned it on just in time to catch the best first audition of the season. That 10 year old Canadian girl can sing.

Oy, totally spaced on this being on. Can't wait for another kid singer with a sob story to get the Golden Buzzer though.

Not going to lie, when the 10 year old kid said she was bullied it seemed forced like she was just trying to force that into the judges lap, but she has a legit great voice. For my money, though, the star of the season so far was Bonavega who turned awesome up to 11 and destroyed the controls.

Yeah, I can see why they ended with him instead of Sophie. Here's hoping he gets through Judge Cuts when they come.

New episode is on now if anyone is interested. I recognize Brett Loudermilk from Penn and Teller Fool Us, so hopefully he gets through.

Apparently a Heidiless episode tonight. Is she not getting a golden buzzer this season?

EDIT: I was wrong apparently, Howie has yet to use his pick. Cant wait for another singer.

Apparently AGT is audienceless tonight. Should be interesting to see how comedians fare.

As per an article, they are apparently condensing the judge cuts from four weeks to one, and may be doing more acts in the live shows. Again, might keep things breezy, although a couple of filler weeks are expected in July and August.
