The Phantom Voice
Good luck class of 2017!
As the summer approaches many of our beloved shows on TV finish off their seasons. This may leave some depressed, leaving people anxiously waiting for the new season to start up next fall. However, some of us have been anticipating the start of the summer season on TV since it ended last summer. One of the most highly awaited shows of the summer is America’s Got Talent! AGT is not only popular on TV, but is so widely watched that it infiltrates social media, best exemplified by Grace VanderWaal last season with her golden buzzer song, “I Don’t Know My Name.”
Last season of AGT brought back Simon Cowell, the creator of America's Got Talent, as judge, replacing Howard Stern. It saw amazing talents such as Grace VanderWaal, Sal Valentinetti, the Clairvoyants, and more. Grace Vanderwaal won the competition as a singer/songwriter. Many other amazing Golden buzzers blew the crowd away with people of all talents, like Sofi Dosi who was a gymnast, Laura Bretan who was a teenage opera singer, and Jon Dorenbos, a magician.
So what’s in store for this season? This season Nick Cannon, the long standing host of America's Got Talent from 2009-2016, announced he would not be returning. For this season, Tyra Banks is taking over as host. What makes this show so great is that we don’t know what’s in store. There are always the acts that blow you away like the singers and dancers, but it’s just as mesmerizing when you see all the creative and new things people do. The best is when the show hits you with those amazing stories that melt your heart, that remind you the show is more than your average television show. SO we don’t know what’s in store for this season, but we know it’s going to be good.
