Trivia

The shape of the X each judge has to use has had four different designs. In seasons one and two, the X was digital and the person's name would be in blue if they buzzed an act. In season three, the X exactly matched the design "Britain's Got Talent" uses. For the beginning of the live shows for the seventh season, the X's edges were sharper. In the next season, the name of the judge would have a white background, instead of blue, the past four seasons, around their name. See more »

This show should exclude singing.
27 September 2013 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I watched the first three seasons of the show and thought it was semi-fun watching all the contestants vie for the judges' votes performing acts ranging from magic shows to acrobats, and from acting to dancing. However, this show also allows singers to compete and, as a result, a large number of winners (if not all) are singers.

There are already multiple singing reality shows including American Idol, The Voice and the X-Factor; therefore, I think we do not need singing to dominate America's Got Talent especially when it showcases other talents BESIDES singing.

This show grew old on me after the third season, as it becomes predictable after the auditions that the winner will no doubt be another singer.

Grade D-
