5 of the Contestants Debuted In ‘AGT’ Season 14

The last season of America’s Got Talent boasted some unbelievable contestants, and TV Line confirms that a handful of them will return for Champions. These contestants include Ryan Niemiller (comedian), Tyler Butler-Figueroa (violinist), V. Unbeatable (dance group), Luke Islam (singer) and Voices of Service (vocal group).

Both Luke Islam and Tyler Butler-Figueroa received the Golden Buzzer during the audition process, and V. Unbeatable nabbed the prestigious marker during judge cuts. All five acts dominated at various points during season 14, but the one who made it the furthest was comedian Ryan Niemiller.

Niemiller captivated audiences and judges alike with his irreverent wit and his willingness to make jokes based on his own physical disability. He finished in third place, and remained one of the most talked-about acts well after the season concluded.

Singer Michael Grimm Is One of the 12 Returning Winners

Gold Derby reports that 12 of the 40 AGT contestants who have returned are past winners. These contestants come from all over the world and offer greater diversity than last season, when five of the returning winners were from America. The only American winner who will compete this season is singer Michael Grimm.

The remaining contestants fall under three camps: quarter-finalists, semi-finalists and finalists. They also come from all over the world, and have competed as far back as the 2007 season of Britain’s Got Talent.

AGT: The Champions 2020 premieres Monday on NBC at 8 p.m. ET.
