BGT: The Champions brings together acts from Got Talent shows around the world, including AGT. If you’ve been following along with the competition, you might have noticed a few familiar faces.
As the BGT: The Champions preliminaries come to a close this week, let’s take a look at some of the well-known AGT alumni who have been lighting up the BGT stage with their talent. A couple of them have even made it to the finals.
Bello & Annaliese Nock On BGT
Daredevil Bello Nock appeared on Season 12 of AGT. After being eliminated in the Judge Cuts, he returned in the quarterfinals as a wildcard. His daughter, Annaliese Nock, auditioned for AGT in Season 13 but withdrew before the Judge Cuts. Now father and daughter are performing together on BGT: The Champions. They made it through to the finals in the first week, thanks to the audience vote.
The Sacred Riana On BGT
The Sacred Riana scared the judges in Season 13 of AGT, making it to the quarterfinals. Her spooky magic act won Asia’s Got Talent in 2017, and she’s since had her own movie. She brought her creepy conjuring to BGT: The Champions. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to move forward to the finals.
Paul Zerdin On BGT
Paul Zerdin won Season 10 of AGT with his funny ventriloquism act. He returned to the AGT stage for AGT: The Champions earlier this year, but didn’t make it to the finals. Paul frequently performs with his puppet Sam, who made an appearance with him on BGT: The Champions. Sadly, they didn’t make it through.
Deadly Games On BGT
Alfredo Silva competed with his wife Anna on AGT in Season 11. Their danger act was eliminated in the semifinals, but they made it to the finals of AGT: The Champions. Alfredo and Anna have since split up, and Alfredo appeared on BGT: The Champions with his new partner, Aleksandra Kiedrowicz. They did not move forward to the finals.
Tape Face On BGT
Who could forget this silly mime act from Season 11 of AGT? Tape Face, whose real name is Sam Wills, made it to the finals with his quirky bits involving props and music. He then competed on AGT: The Champions, and appeared on BGT: The Champions last week. It wasn’t enough to send him through.
Preacher Lawson On BGT
Apparently the Brits love Preacher as much as Americans do. This comedian made it to the finals of AGT Season 12, and later finished in 5th place on AGT: The Champions. He brought his funny stand-up routine across the pond for BGT: The Champions, and won the audience vote to move on to the finals.
Billy & Emily England On BGT
This brother-sister extreme rollerskating duo made it to the semifinals on AGT Season 12. They returned for AGT: The Champions, and now they’ve returned to their home country to compete on BGT: The Champions. Their wild performance wasn’t enough to move them forward.
Vicki Barblolak On BGT
This funny stand-up comedian made it to the finals in Season 13 of AGT. She also returned for AGT: The Champions this year, but didn’t make it to the finals. Maybe her luck will be better this weekend when she appears on BGT: The Champions. Could there be two AGT comedians in the finals? We shall see.
Alex Magala On BGT
This sword swallower has appeared on several Got Talent shows, including BGT. However, before that, he appeared on AGT Season 8, where he made it to the quarterfinals. He returned to compete on AGT: The Champions, and this weekend he’ll take his jaw-dropping act to BGT: The Champions for a shot at the title.
