'America's Got Talent' Resumes Production – Here's How Judge Cuts and Live Shows Will Look

NBC competition series shot its first episode back on an outdoor stage modeled to look like a drive-in movie theater

Summer is here and with everyone staying at home as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we’re imagining your plans for this July and August have more to do with TV listings than they did in years past. Luckily, dozens of new and returning shows are premiering this summer, even though there are fewer than usual, due to pandemic-forced production shutdowns. But the list still includes some big titles like “The Twilight Zone” and “The Umbrella Academy,” plus original shows for new streaming services HBO Max and Peacock. Click through TheWrap’s gallery to see which series will be premiering this summer and when.

    AGT: Eric Stonestreet, Howie Mandel Discuss Judging Without Live Audience — 'It Was All Weird'





    View this post on Instagram

    Judges cut night!!❤️ @agt #summernights🌙

    A post shared by Sofia Vergara (@sofiavergara) on

    Meanwhile, first-time judge Vergara told PEOPLE that she was a "little upset in the beginning" of her inaugural season after production was shut down due to stay-at-home guidelines.

    "I felt like I was robbed of the opportunity to experience and learn the whole thing," Vergara said. "I only had two weeks of actually shooting in the actual venue with the contestants. And then, they had to take away the audience. So that was different for me. I was already getting used to the whole thing, and how it was supposed to be."

    Since the auditions were filmed, all the judges, including Klum, and host Terry Crews resumed production and filmed the Judge Cut rounds. Each act was filmed in separate locations with minimal AGT staff and did not perform in front of a live audience. (Safety and health protocols that adhered to state and local requirements were set in place.)

    America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays (8 p.m. ET) on NBC.

    ‘AGT’ Recap: An Amazing Acrobat Stuns The Judges & Defies Bullies

    ‘AGT’ season 15 has brought so many emotional performances during the auditions. The June 23 episode was no different. The latest acts inspired and moved the audience to tears.

    The June 23 episode of America’s Got Talent featured so many incredible performances. Sofia Vergara’s Modern Family co-star Eric Stonestreet joined the judges while Heidi Klum stayed home because she was sick. From a 12-year-old singer to a stand-up comedian to a magician, the acts didn’t disappoint.

    Singer Shaquira McGrath was a notable performer of the night. She wowed the judges with her terrific performance of “Redneck Woman.” Simon Cowell raved that Shaquira had a “great voice.” Howie Mandel said she totally “crushed it.”

    Rapper Chef Boy Bonez was one of the most memorable performances of the night because of one thing: his eyes. Chef Boy Bonez had the shocking ability to bulge his eyeballs from his eye sockets. His gift scared Sofia out of her seat in fear. At one point, she even tripped and fell into a couple of audience members. This performance was not her cup of tea. She begged Eric not to send him to the next round, but he didn’t listen. Chef Boy Bones and his eyes will be back in the next round.

    The final performance of the June 23 episode was acrobat Alan Silva. The Brazilian-born acrobat defied the bullies he’d faced in the past and showed the world his fabulous talent. His wife, son, and daughter were backstage watching him. Alan revealed that this was the first time his kids were getting to see him perform.

    AGT is part of Alan’s family. His brother, Alfredo, was part of Deadly Games. Alan has amazing skills just like his brother. His aerial silk work was nothing short of amazing. He flew through the air effortlessly and revealed his solid tumbling skills.

    After the performance, Alan started to cry. His kids ran out to hug their dad. “That was the performance of a giant,” Sofia raved. “It was unbelievable.” Simon called Alan a “natural performer” and the “best act we’ve seen all day long.”

    AGT: Eric Stonestreet on Reuniting with Sofia Vergara and His Reaction to Replacing Heidi Klum




    Of the producers' decision to bring in Stonestreet after Klum's emergency exit, Vergara tells PEOPLE that AGT was "lucky" to book him.

    "We were like, 'Oh my God.' I mean, it was not even the coronavirus, Heidi got sick out of the blue," Vergara says. "She couldn't come to work. And then everybody was thinking, 'Oh my gosh. She's got the virus.' That day we needed to judge. So they needed someone."

    Klum, who ultimately tested negative for COVID-19, was dismissed from production prior to learning her results.

    "It was lucky that Eric was in Los Angeles and that he was available that day. And that AGT was one of his favorite shows," Vergara says. "He really was excited to do it and to be able to do it with me was great, too."

    America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays (at 8 p.m. ET) on NBC.
