America’s Got Talent – Best of Auditions
Lily Meola’s performance was one of America’s most memorable moments. To create an original song, the young singer used a loop pedal. The pedal was described by her as a recording studio at her feet. Although she sang in her own voice it sounded almost like she was singing a song famous singers would sing. Each song was flawless. She performed flawlessly and was praised by the judges and the audience.
The thirteenth season of America’s Got Talent was broadcast between May 29 and September 19, 2018. The show’s audition dates were announced in late 2017 or early 2018. Participants were invited to submit auditions via YouTube. The show was filmed in Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The thirteenth season included guest judges such as Chris Hardwick, Olivia Munn, and Dwyane Wade. Kodi Lee was the winner of the fourteenth season, while comedian Ryan Niemiller was the third-place finisher.
The auditions for season 11 were held in the same cities that previous seasons. The auditions were held in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, and St. Louis. The Top 40 acts performed in San Francisco for the judges during the fourth performance show. The remaining Top 20 auditionees competed for the top ten and the million-dollar grand prize. Finally, the Hopefuls performed in St. Louis for the judges and for the viewers.
Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara attended the second day of the auditions for America’s Got Talent. The two wore track suits inspired by the foods of diners. Meanwhile, Alfredo Silva’s Cage Riders swept the competition in America’s Got Talent: Extreme. The judges also selected 11-year-old Madison Taylor Baez, who performed “Amazing Grace” during the commercial break.
A boot camp stage was introduced in the second season of America’s Got Talent. The boot camp consisted of callback episodes that were filmed in Las Vegas. The goal of this stage was to narrow down the competition and make it easier for participants to get through to the live rounds. During this time, three acts ranked mid-way in the public and judges votes. In the end, four acts made it to the live stages: a magician from the Dominican Republic, an impressionist from New Jersey, and a Lebanese dance troupe named Mayyas.
America’s Got Talent is a televised competition that follows the global Got Talent franchise. It premiered in June 2006, and has been renewed for 16 seasons. The tenth season aired on February 2020. Simon Cowell, creator of the show, has been a judge on the show since May 2016.
After the success of the first season, NBC commissioned additional episodes of the show. The series was originally intended to air during the winter season. However, after it became a hit on the British version, it was decided to move to summer instead. Simon Cowell replaced Regis Philbin as host. Sharon Osbourne replaced Norwood after she dropped out due to a legal issue. This season, however, marks the end of the first series for the franchise.
