The six-week run of live events for Season 17 began on Tuesday, revealing which of the 55 artists now fighting for America’s votes was selected by viewers.
During last week’s broadcast, the judges were unable to narrow down which performances would go live due to the increase in the overall number of acts from 36 to 55. In other words, who of the aforementioned acts has a shot at landing the coveted 55th position?
How to Vote for Favorite AGT Act?
AGT voting opens every Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET (starting on August 9), and it closes the following Wednesday at 7 a.m. ET. This occurs in conjunction with the Live Shows. You are only allowed a maximum of 10 votes for each voting method.
The way you vote is quite straightforward now. You simply need to download the AGT app or go to NBC.com/AGTVote in order to cast your vote. The procedure will be carried out somewhat differently this year compared to in years past.
During the course of the next five weeks, every Tuesday Live Show will feature performances from 11 different acts. After that, the audience will have the opportunity to cast their votes, and the top two Acts will be revealed and automatically progress to the final round. The nine Contestants who are still alive after this round will be eliminated.
The final top Acts will fight against one another during the finale on September 13 for a chance to win the grand prize of one million dollars and a spot in America’s Got Talent’s residency in Las Vegas. The winner will be selected by the votes cast by citizens of the United States and announced on September 14.
Watch American Idol on NBC on Tuesdays at 8/7c and then again the following day on Peacock.

Who Serve as the Agt’s Panel of Judges?
Ex-Judge Klum talked about how the experience of being a judge on the show always surprises her.” We’re having the best time,” she told Access Hollywood in April. “I always call it a ‘rollercoaster of emotions,’ because a person comes and they’re singing. The next is an aerialist. The next one is a contortionist or a comedian. Everyone has a story to tell because they’re real people. They’re not actors. This is not a movie. This is real life. It’s always fun to hear the stories…it never gets boring.”
Has the Show Entered the Next Phase?
‘America’s Got Talent,’ which kicked off live programs on Tuesday, has entered its next phase. Finalist spots will be at stake as the competition continues, and judge Howie Mandel usually has an idea of who will take home first place by the time the “AGT” live shows begin. The decision was more difficult to make this season.
“In my mind, there are six different acts that are worthy and could possibly win,” according to Mandel.
Among other things, this is due to the fact that everyone has only performed once before. Even though the Golden Buzzer acts have already made a name for themselves, they still have a long way to go before they can match their early success live.
“Each and every one of these people acts as a hope and has a dream,” said Mandel. “So when you talk about pressure, there isn’t even a word to describe what they must be feeling.”
On the same Pasadena stage where they auditioned, eleven performers will perform each of the following five weeks, but only two acts will advance each week until the finals next month. All of them will be selected by the United States of America.
“Anytime I can hand off the responsibility of somebody else saying, ‘No,’ I’m thrilled,” said Mandel. And Mandel hopes that there will be even more surprises in store for him starting on Tuesday.
“There’s only one, one act, one million dollars that will go on and perform in Vegas, and America this is going to be your toughest year yet,” he said. Making the decision as difficult as possible is what the performers are aiming for.
