Yay, the new season begins JUNE 4 TUESDAYS 9/8c. Set your recorders. Two hours, probably 15 minutes of actual talent in the whole show.
Last season went to the dogs, this season promises to be different. For example, check out the official NBC AGT site. Can you find their forums anywhere, no you can't. NBC is pretty much out of the hosting message board forums business, you cannot even access any archives. Good, they sucked at hosting anyway.
If we get an influx of new posters this year, please let them know they are welcome to post here.
This is technically the official thread for the pre-taped audition shows, which should have much suckitude. And the horrible judging. But please be open and accepting of newbies. As long as they play nice.
Other changes? Well, whenever they get past Vegas Week to the real live competition and voting, it will be aired from Radio City Music Hall in New York City instead of that gowdawful place in Newark that had horrible sound and visuals that sucked on TV last year. No wonder the dogs won.
We also have four judges this season not three, HeidiK and MelB having dually replaced reprehensible doglover SharonO.
For those of you keeping track, our judges now are:
Heidi Klum: German born model, actress and TV host
Howard Stern: an actual American born shock jock
Howie Mandel: Canadian born actor, comedian, and TV host
Melanie Brown (Scary Spice): British born Spice Girl and proto-celeb.
Because America's Got Talent can never have a panel of judges who are all actually Americans.
And off we go!
