3. Heidi Klum Will Kiss a Pig

While on The Today Show, Klum talked about her experience shooting AGT:

It’s a little bit like Groundhog Day. We shoot for, like, four or five days. We always are in the same hair and makeup because it gets all cut together into one episode. You go a little bit loopy and you do crazy things.

Klum also spilled some other exciting details; namely, that Howie will take off his shirt onstage.


4. ‘AGT’ Is in ‘The Guinness Book of World Records’

In April, The Guinness World Records named the show’s “Got Talent” format the most successful Reality TV Format worldwide. It airs in 58 territories and draws in more than 12 million viewers each season. The franchise started with former American Idol judge Simon Cowell, and according to the Hollywood Reporter has the highest number of adaptions in the world.


5. There’s a Golden Buzzer

The golden buzzer is going to be introduced this season. It allows judges to save an act that is about to get booted off — but the catch is that each judge can only use it once during the season.

As you know, there are four judges. In the case that the voting is a 50/50 split, the golden buzzer can be used to save a contestant, who will otherwise be kicked off.
