A Baby Math Master

One of the youngest contestants ever in AGT history is a toddler who can do math like a real pro.

The bit starts off with the judges throwing out numbers that the young math whiz — at this direction of his dad — starts solving on white boards.

The bit is fairly impressive  — although clearly designed to capitalize on how ridiculously cute this kid is — as a very young child solves some reasonably challenging addition and multiplication problems.

It’s a super cute act, although is it one that’s going to win $1 million and a Vegas act? The judges seem to think so as they give Devon and his dad four yes votes!

A Dance Crew to Kick Things Off

The group of young women who come out first are met with resounding cheers from the audience. As it turns out, the group is from Los Osos High School from Rancho Cucamonga, California, and nearly the entire school came out to cheer them on.

The dancers are so optimistic and cheerful, it’s hard not to root for them right from the start — and then when they hit the stage, their flawless movement and innovative choreography just seals the deal.

They are as expertly timed as any AGT dance crew you’re likely to see, and they’ve got a great blend of energy and enthusiasm that it’s clear why they’ve got the kind of support that they do.

The group keeps getting bigger and bigger as the dance goes on, and the judges seem delighted. 

Heidi and Howie like the act, but want them to try to up their game when it comes to mind-blowing moments. Simon, however, disagrees, and thinks the routine displays “everything a good school should be doing” for its students.

The dance crew get three yes votes (and a single no from Howie, because of course) and are moving on to the next round!

Let the Games Begin!

AAAAnnnnd we’re off on a new season!

Every AGT premiere is so exciting because the untapped potential of what we might get to see this season is limitless!

Hopefully we’ll get a magician, a young singer, a musician with an inspiring backstory, and a dance crew who trained themselves!

While sometimes it can feel a little bit like the acts fall into tropes, the truth of the matter is it’s wildly inspiring to see what people with true talent can do!

Let’s all celebrate hopeful people chasing their dreams yet again. It’s AGT time!

Terry Crews Explained the Need for the Golden Buzzer Best

The Golden Buzzer is the biggest game changer and wild card this season — and it was Terry who explained why the very format of the show is so important.

“Talent is subjective. When you put a singer next to a dancer, next to a danger act, next to a magician — they each need their own buzzer!” Crews told ET. “I just think it’s perfect! And I’ve said this before, AGT is consistently evolving… [and] it’s getting better every time a new evolution comes out.”

Who Won Last Year?

With the new season about to start, it’s good to look back and see who earned the win in Season 18.

For the first time ever, a trained dog act took the grand prize! Adrian Stoica and his brilliant canine companion, Hurricane!

The season before that it was a dance crew! This show really brings out all kinds of amazing performers.

How This Season Is Going to Be Different

While the Golden Buzzer rule has been around since Season 10, this time around all the judges – and Terry – will get the chance to slam the Golden Buzzer twice!

How this is going to play out in the long-run is hard to tell. Is the final going to just be Golden Buzzer choices? If so, what’s the point of the audition rounds? Will having that many Golden Buzzers dilute the thrill?

ET spoke with Sofia Vergara recently, and she explained, “I thought at the beginning that we didn’t really need it. I thought, ‘Oh, it’s gonna lose a little bit of the excitement for it.’ But, you know what, the [contestants] are getting so good that you always feel like you want another one! So I think it was a great idea.”

Only time will tell!
