Here’s what you need to know about the 10 acts performing during the season premiere of America’s Got Talent: The Champions 2020:
Paddy & Nicko
Paddy & Nicko are a dance pair who have competed within the Got Talent franchise twice before joining AGT: The Champions 2. They were semifinalists on France’s Got Talent and finalists on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions.
NBC released a clip of Paddy & Nicko’s first AGT: The Champions performance ahead of the season 2 premiere. The duo gave an age-defying dance performance, showcasing lifts that left the judges and audience gasping with each surprise.
58-year-old singer Mike Yung was a memorable contestant on season 12 of America’s Got Talent. Prior to competing on the show, Yung went viral as a New York City subway singer for a video of him singing “Unchained Melody.”
Junior Creative Dance Crew
Junior Creative Dance Crew joins the show from Myanmar, where they finished in the top 5 of Myanmar’s Got Talent season 2 and ultimately won Myanmar’s talent competition’s fifth season when they returned to compete again, this time with more members in their crew to enhance the impact of their expressive and moving performances.
Accordionist Hans has become an even greater international superstar since he first competed on America’s Got Talent season 13. Before the show, he was already well-known in Australia, Europe, and the UK for his larger-than-life cabaret performances.
13-year-old Angelina Jordan is the youngest act performing in the AGT: The Champions 2 premiere. The young singer won Norway’s Got Talent in 2014 when she was only 8.
Singer Jack Vidgen joins the AGT: The Champions 2 contestants with a Got Talent win already under his belt. At only 14 years old, Vidgen won Australia’s Got Talent in 2011.
He moved to America after winning the coveting title but took a break from performing to pursue outside interests. Now 22 years Vidgen, Jack is ready to make his comeback.
Eddie Williams was Australia’s Strongest Man in 2017 and 2018 as well as a Guinness World Record holder for pulling a tank 10 meters in the world’s shortest amount of time.
When he competed on Australia’s Got Talent, he shocked viewers with not only his strength but his impressive singing voice. He was a semifinalist on the show in 2019.
Stand-up comedian Dan Naturman first appeared on season 9 of America’s Got Talent; he was eliminated in the semi-finals.
Although he didn’t win his first go at America’s Got Talent, the experience led him to an acting career and a co-hosting job on the podcast “Live From the Table.”
Dania Diaz is originally from Venezuela but moved to Spain before competing in Spain’s Got Talent in 2018. She earned a double Golden Buzzer on the show and made it all the way to the finals before being eliminated.
She’s a competitor to watch this season, as her magic has earned her a national magic award in Spain and the Latin American Award of Magic.
Duo Transcend (also known as Mary Wolfe-Nielsen and Tyce Nielsen) are married aerial trapeze artists who competed on America’s Got Talent season 13 and made it to the finals before being eliminated.
