AGT Season 19: More Golden Buzzers for Epic Performances

“America’s Got Talent” is upping the ante for its 19th season by giving each judge two Golden Buzzers, allowing more acts to bypass the preliminary rounds and go straight to the Live Shows. Judges Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell, and Sofia Vergara will each have this increased power, while host Terry Crews retains his single Golden Buzzer, bringing the total potential golden tickets to nine.

Terry Crews enthusiastically compared the previous limitation of one Golden Buzzer per judge to running out of Halloween candy, ensuring fans that this season will fully recognize acts that “need and deserve” the Golden Buzzer. Howie Mandel, known for his animated reactions, expressed his excitement, calling this season “epic” and reminiscing about the impactful introduction of the Golden Buzzer.
