Terry Crews will host America’s Got Talent: The Champions when the new show premieres on Monday, January 7, 2019, from 8-10 p.m. ET/PT. The spinoff comes from Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and Fremantle, and judging from social media participation it looks as if it will be a hit.
As America’s Got Talent is a global sensation, the Champions will pit favorites and winners from around the world. They will then vie for the championship before judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B., and Howie Mandel.
Not only will viewers see some of their favorite contestants return but they will be introduced to other AGT winners from around the world. Some who have reached global success, such as Britain’s Got Talent’s Susan Boyle will appear on the new series.
NBC released a statement regarding the new series.
“America’s Got Talent: The Champions will bring together the world’s most talented, memorable and all-around fan-favorite acts from past seasons of “AGT” and around the globe from the other “Got Talent” franchises that span 194 territories. These all-star acts, which include former winners and finalists, will once again take the stage to compete in a massive global competition with the hopes of claiming the ultimate title of World Champion.”
