America’s Got Talent, season 14 is now airing on NBC on Tuesday nights, and fans of the show might be wondering when the live shows start this summer. The show’s format generally involves six weeks of pre-taped auditions, followed by four weeks of judges’ cuts before the live shows air on August 13, 2019.
According to Gold Derby, the pre-taped auditions will wrap up on July 9, 2019. The following week, on July 16, the judges’ cuts will kick off and continue through August 6. When it comes to the live shows, Gold Derby has reported, “The live shows kick off on August 13 with three weeks of quarter-finals airing every Tuesday and Wednesday until August 28. At that point in the competition, 36 acts (nine Golden Buzzers, two dozen from the judges cuts rounds, and three wildcards) will still be in the running. Each week, 12 acts will perform with seven making it through to the semi-finals. The semi-finals go out live on September 3, 4, 10 and 11. Aside from the 21 acts put through in the quarter-finals, there will be one more wildcard. Each week, 11 acts will perform with five making it to the finals.
