The exciting news about Season 14 of America’s Got Talent just keeps coming. We’ve seen photos of the new judges together, learned when the season will premiere, and now we’ve got some interesting details about one of the upcoming acts.
The next season is currently filming, and the judges and host talked to Billboard about one specific audition that will apparently have fans talking. We can’t believe we have to wait over two whole months to find out what it is.
“I just saw the most epic moment I’ve ever seen on AGT history,” judge Howie Mandel told the site. “Nothing like anybody’s seen! People at home are going to be chattering. There is going to be more buzz than there ever has been.”
Meanwhile, host Terry Crews said that it’s likely to be “one of the most viral things in history,” adding, “It was massive.”
Thankfully, they gave a few more details to get us hyped, and maybe clue us in to what this act could possibly be. The performer(s) reportedly earned the Golden Buzzer (it would be weird if they didn’t), and everyone was fighting to be the one to push it. In the end, though, new judge Gabrielle Union got to it first. Terry also shared that all the judges were in tears over the performance.
At the time of the Billboard interview, everyone except Terry and Simon Cowell had pushed the Golden Buzzer. Terry apparently wanted to push it for this huge, tear-jerking act, explaining, “I don’t think America’s ready for what they are about to see.”
So what could this amazing act possibly be? I’m guessing it’s not a singer, because America’s Got Talent has seen some phenomenal singers before, and it’s hard to imagine one being the “most epic” act in the show’s history.
Maybe it will be a David Copperfield-esque magic trick? Making the entire audience disappear? That might not have the emotional impact to make the judges cry, though, so we may have to go back to the drawing board.
Of course, the show could be hyping this audition up to be a lot more impressive than it actually is. After all, American Idol called a recent audition its “greatest ever,” and we have some serious doubts about that.
Either way, we’re eager to tune in to the new season on May 28.
