Viewers Are Once Again Locked out of Voting for 'America's Got Talent: The Champions'

By

On Season 2 of America’s Got Talent: The Champions, 40 of the NBC franchise’s most popular contestants, including winners and finalists from international versions of the show, will battle to determine which act is the best in the world — but they won’t be competing for viewers’ votes.

Instead, the spin-off’s four celebrity judges — Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Alesha Dixon (a longtime judge on Britain’s Got Talent) — and 50 "superfans" get to decide the winner. So, what’s the deal with this seemingly random group of voters? Here’s what we know about the relatively new system.

Who are the superfans on AGT?

The 50 superfans were selected through an application process on the AGT website, and each one represents a different U.S. state. But in order to submit a form, you must live in or around Los Angeles, where the show is filmed. So it sounds like most of these participants aren’t even from the state they’re repping.
