America’s Got Talent heads to the Dolby Theatre Tuesday, Aug. 13 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) for the start of Season 14 live shows. America will now decide who moves forward and who will capture the ultimate prize.
Thirty-six acts in total will perform live for America’s Got Talent judges Simon Cowell, Gabrielle Union, Julianne Hough, Howie Mandel and host Terry Crews as they compete for a chance to win a $1 million prize and headline a show at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
The first 12 acts featured in Tuesday’s live show are Golden Buzzers Kodi Lee, Luke Islam and Sophie Pecora, as well as Alex Dowis, Bir Khalsa, Carmen Carter, Emerald Belles, GFORCE, Greg Morton, Messoudi Brothers, and Voices of Service. In addition, young South Carolina-based singer Ansley Burns will take the stage as one of three “Wild Card” acts.
America’s Got Talent will welcome several guest stars during the first Wednesday results show, including season 13 winner and inaugural AGT: The Champions winner, magician Shin Lim; season one winner Bianca Ryan; season 13 violinist Brian King Joseph; and season 11 contortionist aerialist Sofie Dossi.
Viewers will have a chance to vote for their favorite act at NBC.com/AGTVote and via the “AGT” App (available through Google Play and on the App Store). In addition, Xfinity X1 customers will be able to vote via their set-top box during the live broadcast by saying “vote for AGT” into the X1 voice remote.
From the 12 performances featured on Tuesday, seven acts will move on to the semi-finals after the first results show on Wednesday, Aug. 14 (8-9 p.m. ET/PT). Five acts will move straight through to the semi-finals. The sixth, seventh and 8th place acts will vie for the fan voted “Dunkin Save.” The judges panel will also save a contestant.
