“America’s Got Talent” judge Heidi Klum isn’t swayed by onstage tears or sob stories when deciding which contestant to push through on the popular NBC reality competition show.
“I don’t care how sad the background story is,” Klum told a room of reporters during the “Talent” panel at NBCUniversal’s Summer Press Day at Langham Huntington in Pasadena. “If the act is bad, the act is bad, and I get my ‘X’ out and say no.”
That said, the show’s ninth season, which premiere’s May 27, promises, per host Nick Cannon, “some of the best talent yet.”
In addition to the famous red buzzers, the show will also sport a never-before-seen golden buzzer that judges can use to “save” someone from elimination.
“If someone gets three ‘X’s’ they are automatically out,” Klum explained, “but one time only throughout the entire season you can hit the »

To plug "America's Got Talent," NBC presented a clip reel of upcoming footage from the new season (debuting May 27) for journalists to view during the network's summer press day. While there were plenty of acts that hit familiar marks -- acrobats, a cute kid, a talentless crooner -- one that stood out was a guy who chews up an actual license plate. Still, returning host Howie Mandel (who will be joined again by Howard Stern, Mel B and Heidi Klum) assured the audience that an act that does something shocking doesn't necessarily have a guaranteed trip to the finish. "You only see tidbits of what we see, but if you can capture our attention... there's nothing specific that gets you to the end. The guy who got kicked in the genitals [by a horse last season], he got a show on another network. The most successful talent show on right now is 'The Voice.' They have the voice. »

Talent is returning with its judging/host cast intact — an increasingly rare occurrence on reality competition series these days, NBC having announced last November that Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel were returning as judges on the summer competition series, though Stern had made sure he was the headline by announcing his return to the show 24 hours ahead of the NBC announcement. Breaking the news on his SiriusXM radio program, Stern was sure to let listeners know he’s the Bfd on Agt, saying, in response to radio sidekick Robin Quivers’ question as to whether Klum, B, and Mandel would be back: “Let’s put it this way: When they asked me if [returning] was conditional, I said … let them all come back. »
