“‘Got Talent’ shows have created some of the biggest stars on the planet,” says the host Terry Crews in the video trailer for “America’s Got Talent: All-Stars” (watch above). The last reality TV show on NBC, the summer hit series “America’s Got Talent,” will air on Monday, January 2, 2023 at 8:00 PM ET/PT. As Terry explains, “For the next eight weeks, the best talent from America and around the world will come together in the most powerful battle in ‘AGT’ history for the title of world champion of ‘Got Talent.'”
The three All-Star judges – Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel — is also quoted in the extended clip, as images of the 60 returning contestants flash across the screen. “It’s the best of the best,” says Simon, who also serves as executive producer. Howie points out, “It’s a race of champions.” And Heidi chimes in: “And you came here to fight.” (Unfortunately, the fourth judge of “AGT”, Sofia Vergaranot part of this spin-off.)
