America's Got Talent

America's Got Talent (often abbreviated as AGT) is an American reality television series on the NBC television network, and part of the global Got Talent franchise. It is a talent show that features singers, dancers, magicians, comedians, and other performers of all ages competing for the advertised top prize of one million dollars. The show debuted in June 2006 for the summer television season. From season three (2008) onwards, the prize includes one million dollars, payable in a financial annuity over 40 years, and a chance to headline a show on the Las Vegas Strip. Among its significant features is that it gives an opportunity to talented amateurs or unknown performers, with the results decided by an audience vote. The format is a popular one and has often been reworked for television in the United States and the United Kingdom.

This magician who is an ex-convict amazes the judges when he correctly guesses the cards they picked from a deck. I was shocked and I felt he was robbed when I found out he didn't go through to the live shows.

A puppet named Ira sings You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker to judge Mel B. A little bit embarrassing but still very cute. His mother is a puppet as well.

An amazing creative Japanese dance crew that combines miming, visual effects, and electro-music in their dance; I really hope they get far in the competition this year!

A neighbor and 4 brothers who are members of a 4th generation trick-riding family attempt gymnastic feats on horses. This is something I'm willing to bet a lot of people would fail at miserably. Quite amazing!

This was one of the first ever acts I saw when I began watching AGT and it is incredible the way those students were able to do the acts they were able to do. Quite sad that they didn't win that year but definitely one of the best acts throughout the shows' history.

I love how this guy uses his disability as an ability. He totally deserved the golden buzzer to move on straight to the live shows
