America’s Got Talent 2020 Premiere – Meet the Contestants

America’s Got Talent 2020 kicks off its season on Tuesday. Check out a list and photo gallery of the acts auditioning in front of  judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and new judge, Sofia Vergara on the premiere episode.

The AGT crew began filming at the Pasadena Civic Center earlier this year as usual, with acts performing in front of the judges and a full audience. But by mid March, the coronavirus epidemic began shutting down film production across the country. First, AGT producers eliminated the audience.  But then production eventually halted filming all together. And in the midst of it all, Heidi came down with  a mysterious illness. Eventually, she tested negative for Covid-19.

After all that drama, the season will begin airing in studio episodes, but may eventually need to broadcast at-home auditions. In fact, the judges, including host Terry Crews, have been taping remote auditions. But it’s not clear if the clips will be packaged as episodes.
