This year’s season of America’s Got Talent is in the live shows now, with the first one airing tonight (August 11).
The competition is airing at 8pm on NBC, and the following acts are hoping to win America’s vote:
- Archie Williams
- Bellow and Annaliese Nock
- Divas and Drummers of Compton
- Double Dragon
- Feng E
- Michael Yo
- Pork Chop Revue
- Golden Buzzer Roberta Battaglia
- Shaquira McGrath

However, Simon Cowell will not be on the judging panel, as he was recently in an accident on his electric bike which injured his back and required surgery.
Taking his place is Kelly Clarkson, who will be a guest judge. She tweeted: ‘My friend, Simon Cowell, is doing better now but was in an accident and won’t be able to make Tuesday and Wednesday’s live shows for AGT, but no worries America, someone far wiser, cooler, and hotter is taking his seat! The unbelievably amazing Kelly Clarkson. You’re welcome in advance!’
