America’s Got Talent returned this summer with the hottest performers from across the country competing in the blockbuster reality show’s fifth season. Bringing the variety show format back to the forefront of American culture each week, the show features a colorful array of hopeful future stars — singers, dancers, comedic performers and unique acts of all ages. While each contestant has the chance to strut and perform in front of a panel of celebrity judges including Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan, the eventual winner is chosen by the television viewing audience. Since launching in 2006, America’s Got Talent has been sold to over 100 countries, with localized versions of the hit format being produced in 24 countries around the world.
