What’s New on AGT: Fantasy League?
The format of the new AGT spin-off introduces a unique dynamic: judges won’t merely guide their chosen acts but will compete alongside them. 40 returning acts will all be vying for the coveted title of AGT: Fantasy League champion and a substantial monetary prize of $250,000.
Each judge will assemble a dream team of 10 acts through a fantasy draft, akin to fantasy football. The return of the Golden Buzzer brings a thrilling twist: judges can use it for their acts or steal one from another’s team.
