Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Mel B are putting their own bragging rights on the line in the latest spinoff of America's Got Talent. The judges are participating in America's Got Talent: Fantasy League, where they each draft their own team of performers and compete against each other.
In this new show, the judges will also serve as mentors for their respective teams, providing guidance and suggestions during rehearsals. The aim is to lead one of their acts to victory and win the highly coveted bragging rights. The winning act will also receive a grand prize of $250,000.
The trailer for the show showcases all 40 awe-inspiring acts, which are all AGT alumni. These performers will bring top-tier performances to the stage, complete with high-flying feats and pyrotechnics. The Golden Buzzer, a fan favorite, will also make a comeback in the qualifiers and semi-final rounds. This time, the judges can use their Golden Buzzer for their own act or to steal an act from another judge's team.
The audience will vote to determine who advances to the semi-finals and final rounds. The judges are fueled by their competitive spirits, with Mel B declaring, "Let the games begin!" She believes that Heidi, Simon, and Howie are all equally competitive and explains that they are all vying to mentor the winning act and claim the Golden Buzzer.
Mel also jokes about her previous experience working with Simon on The X-Factor, saying that he can be adorable but also annoying. The judges are excited about the competition and are ready to bring their A-game. America's Got Talent: Fantasy League premieres on January 1, 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC, with streaming available the next day on Peacock. With the judges serving as mentors and the intense competition among the teams, the show promises to bring thrilling performances and captivating moments.
