The AGT Season 15 premiere is almost here! The 2020 edition of the talent show is coming up fast, and we can’t wait to see what new acts are waiting to wow us this time around.
There are quite a few changes in store this season, both on the judging panel and with regards to the show’s production. Read on to find out the date and time for this year’s premiere, and where to watch.
When Does ‘AGT’ Season 15 Premiere?
Season 15 of America’s Got Talent will premiere on Tuesday, May 26, at 8 pm ET/PT on NBC. If you can’t catch it when it airs, the episode will go online on the NBC website the next day.
According to Good Housekeeping, you can also watch the show on Hulu with a subscription, or through the NBC app, and you can stream it via Apple, Amazon, Samsung, Android, and Xbox, and through Roku and Vizio.
“We are so proud to present a 15th season of America’s Got Talent this summer,” Simon Cowell said in a statement. “This show represents the best in perseverance, creativity and optimism. At a time when families are unable to go out we really hope the new season will bring some much-needed joy and escape.”
The two-hour premiere will be followed by the season premiere of World of Dance at 10 pm ET/PT. AGT will air on Tuesdays throughout the summer, although the format is likely to look a little different after the first several episodes.
How Will This Season Of ‘AGT’ Be Different?
For starters, this season features a new panel of judges. Longtime judges Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel are returning, but last season’s judges Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough have been replaced by former judge Heidi Klum and newbie Sofia Vergara.
The judges filmed a few audition episodes in the studio (with an audience), but there were some changes in store. First, Heidi Klum came down with an illness and had to be temporarily replaced by Eric Stonestreet.
Then, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the show had to be filmed without an audience. Once social distancing orders became more strict, the judges had to start judging acts remotely from their homes. In previews, you can even see Simon Cowell appearing in pajamas!
We can’t wait to witness all the changes when the season premieres next week.
