America’s Got Talent has revealed the top 44 acts headed to the season 15 live shows, which premiere Tuesday, Aug. 11 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) from Universal Studios Hollywood on NBC.

This season’s live shows will also feature an AGT “first,” with several of the acts having initially auditioned online during the remote auditions due to stay-at-home orders now coming to Los Angeles to perform in the live shows.

In the first four weeks of the live quarterfinals, 11 acts will perform each Tuesday and viewers can vote at 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.

Results will be revealed during a one-hour telecast each Wednesday (8-9 p.m. ET/PT) with five acts going through each week to the semifinals. During the Wednesday night show, fans will have a chance to save an act in jeopardy during the telecast, via the “Dunkin’ Save.”

The acts appearing in the first live show on Tuesday, Aug. 11 are Archie Williams, Bello & Annaliese Nock, Divas & Drummers of Compton, Double Dragon, Feng E, FrenchieBabyy, Michael Yo, Pork Chop Revue, Golden Buzzer Roberta Battaglia, Shaquira McGrath, and Simon and Maria.

Golden Buzzers automatically advanced to the Top 44 and are included on the list below: Brandon Leake (Howie Mandel), Cristina Rae (Heidi Klum), Roberta Battaglia (Sofia Vergara), Voices of Our City Choir (Terry Crews), W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew (Simon Cowell).

So, according to the press release above, acts will perform live on stage rather than remotely. Will acts that are overseas be able to perform live? Or will some acts perform remotely? The live shows usually take place in a Hollywood theater. But even with the show filming on an NBC lot, I am assuming there will be no studio audience.
