America's Got Talent Judges: Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel

MasterClass Discussion For The Season 6 Premiere Of America’s Got Talent


Tonight is a busy night on the NBC Network. Starting at 8:00, America’s Got Talent debuts it’s sixth season, followed by the The Voice at 10:00.

So, if you love both shows, make sure you pop some corn and settle back for 3 hours of rock solid entertainment.

Over on the America’s Got Talent Official site, you will see some video promos for this season’s show.

It looks like we are in for another entertaining summer with returning judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and host, Nick Cannon.

Who will be this year’s Michael Grimm, winner of last season’s AGT title?

Is there another child prodigy, like the adorable and talented Jackie Evancho, lurking in the wings?

Who will dazzle us with his or her magic, as Michael Grassoso expertly accomplished last season?

We shall know soon enough. For now, we should savor the fun before we start picking any favorites. And don’t forget to add your comments before, during or after the show.

  1. Rosanne,

    I’m looking so forward to another season of America’s Got Talent, and am glad Howie Mandel is still there. I think he is great addition to the judging panel.
    My hope though for this season is that someone other than a singer wins. It’s high time!

    The show I’m most looking forward to is So You Think You Can Dance. I remember how much you loved Billy Bell’s dancing. His technical skills were extraordinary, and certainly surpassed Kent’s, even though I was more of a Kent fan that season. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that show, and am very excited that the new season has started.

    I wonder how Billy and Kent are moving on with their careers.

    Ok Anita how old am I? I totally forgot about SYTYCD. Yes, I will be following this wonderful show. It airs tomorrow right? I loved Billy Bell so much. He was my favorite after Alex left the show due to injury.


  3. Rosanne,

    Yes, it airs tomorrow night. Alex was also my number 1 favorite that season as well. It’s been said that Alex was the best dancer that show has ever seen. He just blew me away with what he was capable of!


  4. Oh AMG, the show never fails to amaze me! Some great talent, as per usual, but some awful people. The magicians were neat! Juggling with tazers???? That should just be wrong – what if he had accidentally tazed someone in the audience or himself??? My favourite was the last act “illuminate” – kind of reminded me of Fighting Gravity!

    SYTYCD – LOVE that show!! 🙂


  5. I never watched last year and I won’t watch this year either. I and hope others do too want JERRY SPRINGER back. He is the best host for that show. He has the emotion for that show and from the very first one I knew he was the best for it. Please please bring Jerry back.


  6. I actually quite enjoy Nick Cannon as the host – I think he is absolutely hilarious and has some funny comments!

    Bizzee – yes he is. The show is non-stop laughs and great rib-tickling entertainment.
