Reading Time: 2 minutes

America’s Got Talent has sure kept things interesting this season, and now the live shows are back. In total, 36 acts will be performing at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The first Quarterfinal vote opens this evening. The “Instant Save” votes will open Wednesday, August 11. Here’s the best way to vote for your favorite AGT acts this season.

Additionally, for the first time ever, audiences will have the opportunity to choose a Wildcard slot for season 16, exclusively on Peacock.

How to Vote for AGT This Season

Voting this season will remain mostly the same as in the past. Viewers can vote directly on the NBC Website or by using the AGT app. The NBC Help Center provides step by step instructions on how to vote and play along through your mobile device.

The America’s Got Talent Official App is the best way to get involved during the live show. On this platform you can tell America your favorite acts, mix and match judge phrases for your buzzers, and cast your votes directly during the live shows. Voting opens at the beginning of the show on Tuesdays and closes at 7 a.m. ET the following morning.


To vote through the app or on the NBC website, you will first be required to set up an NBCUniversal Profile. This profile allows you to enjoy a seamless cross-platform experience when you log in on more than one device. Viewers will also receive credits that allow you to watch any three locked episodes for free.

What Else Can You Do With the AGT App?

The AGT app also provides different ways to play along during different parts of the season:

  • Sound Off on your buzzer whenever you want- even when the show’s not on
  • Vote for your favorite acts during the live voting episodes with your NBCUniversal Profile
  • Save acts on results nights
  • Share your favorite acts on Facebook and Twitter with AGT’s social feed
  • Tweet Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Terry Crews straight from the app
  • Learn More about the acts with new profile pages, featuring bios, video clips, and more

In accordance with these platforms, the “Instant Save” will also be returning to the voting process this season. If your favorite act is in danger of elimination, you will be able to use this feature to save them from going home. This can be applied in the midst of the live results show.

For the first time ever, fans will be able to vote for their favorite wildcard act this season. Viewers can place their votes on Twitter from Tuesday August 10 at 7 p.m ET through Friday, August 13 at 7 a.m. ET.
